Here at Ripley Endowed, we see learning at home as fundamental aspect in the development of your child’s knowledge, skills and understanding in school.
Therefore, we have created this information as a way of communicating:

The learning that will be set each week;
The amount of time the children should be spending on this at home;
Ways to help your child at home.

These are only our guidelines and if you wish to spend a larger proportion of your time learning at home, this is perfectly acceptable.

Certain website can help your child learn at home in a fun and relaxed manner. Here are a few which you could use. Have a look and see which best suits your child(ren):

o ABC Tracing & Phonics (EYFS);
o Counting Parrots (EYFS, KS1);
o Hooked on Phonics (KS1);
o Squeebles  - they have English and maths apps for KS1 & 2;
o Zapzapmaths KS1 & 2;
o CodeSparkAcademy (KS1 & 2);
o Puppet Pals (KS1 & 2);
o Book Creator (KS2).

Weekly Learning at Home
We know our children are busy people, but learning at home for five out of seven nights will have a huge impact on their school learning.

We suggest that our Reception and Year 1 and 2 children do approximately 5 to 20 minutes each evening (or the next morning) depending on their age. Our Year 3 to Year 6 children should spend between 20 to 30 minutes daily. However, you know your child and should gauge what they can do.

Our main learning at home will consist of reading, spellings and the maths passport targets.

If our children are secure in these core skills, then their school learning will develop successfully.

Learning at home should be fun. For example, children who are learning to count could play a board game with the whole family; children learning their times tables could use an app to help. Hunt spelling patterns around the supermarket or use book creator to write a story that uses as many words as they can with this week’s spelling pattern in.

As the children move into Years 5 and 6, they may bring home extra learning and revision aids. This is in addition to their other learning.
