Why does home learning matter?
Home learning in the early years plays a very important role in a child's development. Studies have shown that learning opportunities at home have a positive impact on a child's literacy and numeracy attainment in school. It affects their school readiness and can contribute to their independence, creativity and self-confidence once at school.
Because of this, we recognise how crucial parental involvement is in extending children’s learning. To encourage parents/carers to participate in their child’s learning we will be regularly updating this page with practical activities as well as helpful tips to guide you on how to teach certain topics. These home learning challenges will focus on skills that the children need to develop throughout the year.
By completing these tasks we hope to improve the children’s thinking and memory skills, review and practise what has been covered in the nursery and prepare for future learning in class. In addition, it will keep parents updated about what they are learning in school.
We hope you make it a regular habit to access our home learning page.
