Home learning is an important opportunity for pupils to consolidate and apply what they have learnt within the classroom and at school, allowing students to practice specific skills or further their knowledge around a specific topic or issue. Home learning is also an excellent opportunity for parents to support their child’s progress and development in partnership with the school.
At Cambridge we aim to ensure that tasks are fun, engaging and relevant to the pupil. The type and frequency of home learning tasks set for pupils depends on their learning need, key stage, and the curriculum they are studying.
Pupils in Key Stage 3 and our Key Stage 4 nurture group may be given tasks to complete linked to their literacy and numeracy skills. They may also include practical and research tasks related to specific topics and projects that students are studying. Teachers will share with parents’ details of these of these tasks and any expectation about their completion.
Pupils in Key Stage 4 (in both year 10 and 11) who are studying for Maths and English exams and BTEC qualifications are expected to complete regular home learning tasks that will prepare them for success in completing the courses and achieving the best possible result. Pupils are expected to use their planners to record and keep a track of tasks, and we ask that parents support their child with this organisational skill.
Our school has recently invested in a fantastic online program which supports learning in English and Maths. IXL means that learning can take place at any time, can be set by either families or the teacher, and progress and areas for improvement can be seen at any time.
