At William Barcroft we put a great deal of emphasis on the important partnership between school and home. We understand that the opportunity to learn and develop does not stop when a child leaves school at home time. Home learning is anything that contributes to the child’s learning in response to guidance or request from the school. Home learning encompasses a whole variety of activities instigated by teachers and parents to support learning.
All children are expected to read a minimum of three times per week which is incentivised by a reading token which enters the child into a weekly draw and if successful, they can win a book. Children need to hand in their reading record in daily so this can be monitored. As the children move through the school, more reads per week are encouraged. This is in line with the school’s reading expectations. It is expected that reading books and records are carried to and from school in a bag provided stop becoming from becoming creased or torn. Children are encouraged to take ownership of their own learning and may wish to research or further investigate areas of interest and this will be wholly dependent on the child and therefore a time will be not be specified.
