Home Learning

At Stroud Green Primary we see huge benefits in assissting you with supporting your child at home with their learning. There are a number of things we do to ensure you are well informed about what is going on in the classroom. You will receive a half termly newletter which will inform you about what the learning will  be for that half term. If your child is in nursery or reception you can also view your childs online learning journal through Tapestry (details of which can be found here). Class pages also hold up to date information about the current curriculum being taught and you can find these here.

As well as all of the above we have a home learning strucure in place from reception to year 6. The documents at the bottom of this page set out the expectations for each year group. Here is an overvew of the whole school home learning activities:

Maths

In reception to year 2 children will get fortnightly maths homework to complete in their homework book. This will be linked to the maths they have been doing in the classrooms that week.

In Year 3 to 6, homework will be set though mymaths. Mymaths is online and teachers set weekly tasks every Friday linked to the learning happening in the classroom. Your child will have received a login from the school (You can also contact Beth Stickland should you require this again), You can dowload a guide with some FAQ below. 

We also expect children to be regularly practicing their timestables at home. These are a key life skill and the expectations for these are:

Year 1 Count  in  multiples  of  2,  5  and  10.     Recall  and  use  all  doubles  to  10   and  corresponding  halves
Year 2 Recall and use multiplication  and   division  facts  for  the  2, 5  and  10   multiplication  tables,  including   recognising  odd  and  even   numbers.  
Year 3 Recall  and  use  multiplication  and   division  facts  for  the  3, 4  and  8   multiplication  tables.
Year 4 Recall  and  use  multiplication  and   division  facts  for  multiplication   tables  up  to  12x12.
Year 5 Revision  of  all  times  tables  and   division  facts  up  to  12x12.
Year 6 Revision  of  all  times  tables  and   division  facts  up  to  12x12.

English

In reception to year 2 children will get fortnightly English homework to complete in their homework book. This will be linked to the writing or phonics they have been doing in the classrooms that week.

In Year 3 to 6, children are expected to practice the spellings for the half term. Ms White holds a half termly Spelling Bee which has been very exciting and enjoyable so far this year! Keep an eye out for the winners on the newsletters.

We also encourage you to read with your child every day at home whatever year  group they are in. This could be a book, newspaper, magazine, comic, website or anything else you have! Look out for our parent workshops on how to help your child read at home.

The wider curriculum

Our wider curriculum is taught through half termly topics. Once a term you will be given a title for an exhibition. These can be found on the class pages or curriculum newsletters This is an oppertunity for you to work with your child on an exciting project linked to their current topic.
