Children are encouraged to take books home with them to read and share with their parents or carers from the very start of their school life.
All children have a 'Home Learning Log', which acts as a means of communication between parents and the class teacher. Through this book, parents are informed of the home learning tasks set for their child and it can be used to continue dialogue between home and school.
We recommend that children read daily, practise any spellings which are sent home and practise number facts including times tables. As the children move through the school some more formal tasks will be set on a weekly basis. These will mainly focus on consolidating the literacy and numeracy skills taught in school, but not exclusively.
Extended Home Learning Tasks are also set at least once a term. This will be related to the class topic and designed to inspire and challenge the children. It can take many forms such as model building, ICT based presentations, art or the option to complete a task in any way the child feels displays their skills and talents best. The children really enjoy doing these tasks and they produce some very creative work.
EARLS COLNE VILLAGE CAROL SERVICE
Due to continued bad weather, the school will not be participating in the Earls Colne Village Carol service tonight.
Unfortunately, due to sheet ice around and on the school site we have had to make the decision to close the school we would not be able to guarantee the safety of children and staff in the current circumstances.
