Home Learning is an important tool to help consolidate in-school learning. Tasks are assigned on a weekly basis in order to review what has been taught in class that week. We are incorporating online learning strategies such as weekly and half term quizzes to improve children’s retrieval of skills and knowledge across the curriculum. These help to embed previously taught core skills and to support children to retain knowledge in wider curriculum subjects. Recent research has highlighted how home learning that is linked to classwork is effective, in increasing subject knowledge as well as developing fluency in a specific area of the curriculum (EEF 2021).
At Torriano, home learning tasks will be given through Google Classroom and in Home Learning books for children in Years 1 – 6. Students have access to their Google Classrooms for the academic year and tasks are set weekly and in books.
Early Years home learning will be communicated via the online learning journal Tapestry, which all families have access to.
You can find details of the offer in our Home Learning Guidance.
