Home Learning

At Shirley Junior School, we believe that home learning is important and can help children to become more effective learners.

We view home learning as being a supported or independent task undertaken outside of curriculum time which reinforces, extends or enriches current learning.

The purposes of home learning at Shirley Junior School are:

  • to enable children to practise and consolidate basic skills required to make good progress at school,
  • to enable children to take responsibility for their own learning, become independent learners and develop perseverance when mastering essential basic skills.
  • to broaden the context of learning and provide enrichment and extension,
  • to provide opportunities for parents to be involved in their child’s learning,

Children have regular English, Maths and Topic home learning. Information about each of these can be found by clicking the sections to the right of this page.
