Children benefit greatly from the mutual support of parents and teachers in encouraging them to learn both at home and at school.
Home Learning is anything that children do outside the normal school day. It can encompass a whole variety of activities.
Parents can support at home the work that is happening in school as outlined in their Individual Education Plan’s (I.E.P.’s). We consider it important that parents and families should take every opportunity to promote their child’s independent living skills.
The chance to practice self care, travel competence and domestic activities such as personal hygiene routines and making simple snacks provide pupils with the chance of achieving some independent living skills.
Reading books are sent home on a regular basis, this provides an ideal opportunity to share an activity with the family.
Home School Books
Home school books play an essential role in communication between home and school. The books contain information regarding the school day, any medical issues or concerns, school policies and the curriculum which both pupils and their parents/carers might find useful. The books can be used by parents/carers to inform school about issues concerning their son/daughter or to ask for further information about aspects of school. The class teacher will use the book to inform parents/carers about how their son/ daughter is getting on and about any significant events.
We aim to write in them daily to give parents/ carers an overview of what day their child has had. We appreciate parents/ carers also writing in these too.
