Home Learning

Welcome to our specific Home-School Communication page. We hope that by logging into this page you will have access to the important parts of knowing what is happening in school as well as the resources to support learning at home.

Buglawton Primary School's Home Learning Hub

This page also provides links to Google Classroom alongside key links to home learning websites and apps that we would expect pupils to be accessing in the case of a bubble being taught remotely.

Below are two video tutorials which talk you through how to access and navigate Google Classroom.

If you require any support in accessing home learning, then please contact the school office who will arrange a call to be made to you.

Home Learning Expectations

We expect every child to:

  • Read most nights for at least 10 minutes from Reception up to 30 minutes in Year 6 (it is not always necessary to read to an adult in upper KS2, although support with comprehension and understanding of vocabulary is extremely beneficial)

  • Practise spellings daily

  • Learn ‘Maths Facts’ until they are known by heart

  • Take advantage of learning internet-based app activities (Spellingshed, TTRockstars, Numbots etc.) for a short activity that can be daily or a few sessions over the week

  • Consider completing additional topic-based activities over the half-term to contribute to understanding and deepening knowledge of the class topics

  • Finish work that has not been completed due to choice in behaviour.

KS1 should be practising phonic sounds and key words at least three times a week

Year 6 pupils should be consolidating learning through their own English and Maths Revision Books.

We expect every parent to:

  • Promote a love of reading: reading to your child, listening to your child read and talking about books that are read

  • Sign the Home-School Planner to confirm what reading has taken place

  • Check bags/emails daily for letters and messages sent home

  • Talk to your child about their learning in school and support them when necessary

  • Check that any work not finished in school due to choice in behaviour has been completed and returned to school the following morning.

In creating this home learning timetable, we have followed the Government’s guidelines of:

  • Year 1 - 1 hour a week

  • Years 3 and 4 - 1½ hours per week

  • Years 5 and 6 - ½ an hour a day.

For more information, please see our Home Learning Page on our school website.
