Home Learning

Home Learning at Newton St. Cyres is an important part of the school week. We want to ensure that home learning is linked to work in school, is enriching and engaging and offers opportunities for families to talk about learning and the learning process.

Home Learning takes two forms at Newton St. Cyres; Pick and Mix Homework and Home Learning Projects. Pick and Mix homework gives children ownership of their home learning across English, maths and thematic based learning. A child can choose which piece or pieces of work to complete each week. The only expectation is that there is a range of homework competed across the three areas by the end of each half term. 

Home learning projects run over a half term/term and allow a child to deepen their understanding of a particular area linked to their class topic. Children will be given a guide or stimulus to begin their learning and then they present their findings on an agreed date. The home learning projects are presented and celebrated as a class with parents and carers invited in to share in the successes as an acknowledgement for their contributions at home.

Alongside pick and mix and home learning projects, we also expect weekly reading, spellings and times tables to be completed in line with class expectations.

Home learning is very popular at Newton St. Cyres and all children engage in innovative learning projects. We are always very grateful for parental engagement and involvement and their role in developing lifelong learning away from the classroom. Below is a gallery of homework projects.
