Home Learning During School Closure

Home Learning During School Closure

The aim of homework at Harvey Road Primary School is to encourage an effective partnership between home and school in promoting independence and enthusiasm for learning by providing opportunities to consolidate, reinforce and revise skills and understanding developed at school. In order to achieve this during a time that is very challenging for all of us, teachers have put together ‘Home Learning’ resources for you.

These Home Learning details will identify what the class teacher is asking your child to complete over the week.  It will also provide work sheets and online learning opportunities that are age specific.  These details will be updated on a weekly basis every Monday until children return to school.

Home Learning should be as enjoyable as possible.  If you have any concerns then please email your child’s class teacher using the class email address.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
