Home Learning

At Delce Academy, we believe home learning is an important part of the learning process for our children and it is valued as an opportunity for children, parents and teachers to build a shared responsibility for learning.

For this academic year, compulsory home learning will be set weekly with optional termly tasks.

Every week, each child will receive weekly home learning. This will be set on a Friday and should be returned the following Wednesday. This home learning is expected to be completed by all pupils. Upon submitting their home learning on Wednesdays, this will be acknowledged by the class teacher.

Weekly home learning will consist of phonics/spellings, where there will be weekly spelling tests from Year 3 upwards. There will also be a short maths task to complete. Pupils should still read daily and keep a record of this in their reading records. Below is what weekly home learning will look like across the different year groups.

Every term, children will receive a list of suggested activities they can complete, linking into that term’s learning, across all subjects. These activities are not compulsory to complete, but if your child does complete them, your child can hand in their learning at any time. This will be acknowledged by the class teacher and will be celebrated to show their dedication towards their learning.
