At Aureus Primary we encourage our families to work together on activities which help to consolidate and extend your child’s learning. We aim to promote a love of learning through activities which can be enjoyed at home, giving your child the best chance to develop skills that they will use both at home and in the classroom. There is an expectation that children read and are read to at home on a daily basis.
Some of the activities that children may bring home include:
- Phonics and spelling activities - to secure an understanding of letters and sounds and develop early reading skills
- Reading for pleasure - a variety of texts to enjoy at home to develop reading skills such as fluency and comprehension, and of course, a passion for reading
- Maths activities - games and activities to deepen understanding of mathematical concepts, develop a secure ‘number sense’ and build maths confidence
At Aureus Primary we understand that family time is precious. We want our children to enjoy their home learning experiences and would like to be able to support our families in helping their children to learn at home successfully. Throughout the year we will be offering family learning experiences to build parent and carer confidence in areas of the curriculum and child development.
Aureus Primary Passport (of Experiences)
Our pupil’s holistic development and wellbeing is of the utmost importance to us at Aureus. As well as activities to support academic achievement, we will also be developing, with input from our pupils, an ‘Aureus Passport of Experiences’ for each child in the school.
This will comprise of a list of exciting learning opportunities, which can be completed in school or at home, which provide opportunities to try new things, visit new places and meet new people!
