Home Learning Term 2

Home learning is commencing again in Week 3.

Please remember:

  1. Reading books are given out on Mondays and collected each week on Friday.
    Children must keep their book in a protective home learning folder. No new book will be given without a protective folder or without returning the previous book.
  2. Home learning grids with additional home learning activities will be sent home on a fortnightly routine. This includes;
    – Reading
    – Learning Goals for Term 2 (glued into their homework book)
    – Sight words or Spelling
    – Matheletics (passwords in the front of their home learning book)
    – Physical Activities
    – Whole Child Development’ activities.
  3. Also coming home is some work your children have completed on the growth mindset for your reference and a rainbow facts chart for them to keep at home.

We don’t expect more than 15 minuets of home work a night, and also understand that some days even this is not possible.

Home Learning Helpers

With your child’s home learning folder today will be a placemat to hopefully help out at home. There are lots of little helpers for English and Mathematics on the placemat (double sided). An example is below;

Thank you to everyone who has sent back their progress folder. Those of you who have will find the yellow goal sheet has transferred into the home learning folder. This is a copy of the blue one the children self manage in class. Please note that goals wont be marked off until they are consistently demonstrated at school.

If you still have your child’s progress folder at home feel free to take out the goal sheet and add it to the home learning folder.

Please send back progress folders when you have reviewed them.

As always, let me know if you have any questions!

Home Learning

Research has shown daily independent reading to be one of the most important factors in predicting student success in school.

Please encourage your child to read daily, and ask questions about what he/she is reading!
