At Brookfield Primary School we operate a policy of Learning at Home.
Most weeks there will be spellings to practise.
We also strongly encourage the practice of mental arithmetic skills and daily reading.
- Mental Arithmetic: From Year 1 children have access to Times Table Rock Stars, we strongly encourage children to use this facility at home to consolidate their mental arithmetic skills.
- Spellings: From Year 1 children are given spellings at the beginning of the week to practise and learn in preparation for being tested on Thursdays.
- Reading Records: All children throughout the school have Home-School Diary books to encourage daily shared reading. Please add comments about any reading time you share with your child. We strive for children to read at least five times a week and like this to be evidenced in the Home-School Diary with a short comment. Five Owl points are awarded to children who have read five times per week.
- Home Learning: Each Term class homework activity challenges are set for each year group, this is not collected from children, but children may like to share their home learning with their class teacher and peers. The homework activity challenges are designed to enhance class learning and provide fun activity suggestions to share in at home. Owl points are awarded for any tasks completed with evidence.
