We do Home Learning because:
It helps us to build our knowledge, skills and confidence
It helps us to become independent learners ready for secondary school
You will get your Home Learning every Friday from your teacher, and it will also be sent home on SeeSaw so that your parents and carers can support you in doing it.
Your teacher will tell you when your work is due each week but it will usually be the following Wednesday.
Mr E-B’s Top Tips for Home Learning:
Don’t leave it until the night before it is due
If you get stuck, speak to your teacher, don’t just give up!
Try to find a quiet place to work in when you do it, so that you can concentrate
Do your homework in ‘chunks’ of 15-20 minutes, with short breaks in-between
Water and healthy snacks will help you to concentrate, music and TV won’t!
