Home Learning

Upton Home Learning

Home learning is set regularly in every year group for all pupils.

English is taught in Learning Groups. The English Learning Group teacher sets English home learning for the children in their group.

Maths is taught in Learning Groups. The maths Learning Group teacher sets maths home learning for the children in their group. We use 'MyMaths' an online interactive maths programme to support maths teaching and for setting maths homework.

Each Year Group set home learning related to topic work studied across each term. This is often in the form of an independent project.

The Learning Mentors lead ‘Upton Home Learning Club’ twice a week. This is open to all pupils (at parent, teacher or child’s request for a place)

The IT Suite is open daily until 5pm for parents (or grandparents) to work alongside their child with ‘My Maths’ or other online home learning tasks.

Various art and writing competitions are set across each term for all pupils to enter.

Please see the overview below as a guide for the Home Learning across the four year groups:

Timings are a ‘guide’ for parents and children to follow. If you have any issues / questions please speak to your child’s class teacher or the Learning Mentors in the first instance.
