The focus is on a range of skills, not just literacy and numeracy – and creative, open ended tasks are also encouraged:
Regular reading to and with parents is vital. We recommend that this takes place daily for younger pupils and at least four times a week for pupils in Key Stage 2. It is also important to talk to your child about the books they are reading.
Children should practise their mental maths skills at home, especially number bonds and multiplication tables.
Children from Year 1 upwards will be set some creative home learning tasks. These link to what children are currently learning at school, and may be from any subject area. Sometimes children may be asked to complete tasks in preparation for up and coming class work eg. research on a particular topic.
