Home Learning

Home Learning at CPS

Here at CPS we value the impact you too can have on your child's learning. 

We want to give you activities to support learning but also things to do together as a family.

 

CPS Home Learning activities include:

 

EYFS:

 

Key Stage 1:

 

Home Learning is set on a termly basis to continue work linked to school, providing children with the opportunity to revise certain areas of learning and to encourage them to take their learning further.

 

This year we are adopting the Key Stage 2 model of the ‘50 Point Projects’. Each term the children will be given a set of challenges to complete which are linked to our termly topics. Instead of children bringing in work on a weekly basis, children will have the whole term to complete enough tasks to collect a minimum of 50 points. Final projects should be brought in during the final week of term for us to share as a class.

 

Key Stage 2:

 

Home learning in Key Stage 2 mainly consists of our 100 Point projects. For this we set a range of activities linked to our learning that term. Each topic is awarded a specific number of points. Children can then plan their time accordingly to work around family time and other out of school activities. During the final week of each half term, they then need to bring in their completed projects - completing enough activities to accrue 100 points. They can then share and celebrate all the amazing work that has been completed.

 

Each class also allocates class time to complete activities on My Maths. Each child has an individual log in so they are able (should they wish) to do additional studying at home.

 

In Year 6, as we progress through the year there may be additional work sent to support preparation of end of Key Stage testing - this will be done in discussion with the Year 6 teacher following a parent session.

 

Other whole school activities that may be used include:

 

Talk Topics: We share what we are talking about at school with you so you can also share in our values.

 

Pick and Mix: A variety of fun activities that you can choose as little or as many as you want.

 

Spellings: Use "Look, say, cover, write, check" at home can help your child to learn the words they need to support their progress in English.
