Regardless of whether it is made explicitly clear, children are expected to read on a daily basis as an essential part of their home learning.
We ask parents to read to their child regularly as well as hear them read, even when their child has become an independent reader. Young children also benefit from having stories read to them that they cannot read themselves.
Each child has their own Google Classroom account, where home learning is posted. This also provides an area for secure learning dialogue between home and school. A direct link to Google Classroom can be found at: https://www.shakespeareinfantschool.co.uk/learning-links/
Children may also have English home learning to complete, usually writing sentences containing spellings learned that week. Please help your child prepare for a spelling class quiz by practising these regularly.
Topic related activities
Your child's class teacher may set a variety of other activities for home learning that link with their project work. These may be given as a separate task to complete over a couple of weeks, or may be set on Purple Mash.
If you have any queries about home learning please see your child's teacher who would be happy to answer your questions.
