How can you help your child at home?
To start with - please do check your child's book bag every evening! As well as reading books or other home learning, this is where you may find letters from the school or FRoGS, or even that party invite before its too late.
All the children in Key Stage 1 have their own Home Learning Journal which they are encouraged to complete at home and bring into school to share.
At The Grange we recognise that the children learn, not just in school, but at home as well and we want to celebrate this. Each half term, the teachers in Years 1 and 2 will send home a suggestion sheet of home learning ideas linked to the topic being covered at school, however any area of interest can be explored.
There is no one way of a child recording their home learning. Paintings, drawings, collage, writing and computer generated work are all appropriate. Tickets and mementoes of places visited could also be included as well as photographs. These could even have been taken by the child.
Occasionally the teachers will suggest a focus for home learning with a date for it to be returned, however most home learning is child initiated.
