Home learning

Learning @ Home

Learning at home can be very difficult; in knowing how much or how little should be done. Often our young people do not want to do 'school work' at home. Don't worry! Focus on the activities you'll find in this section on Life Skills, such as cooking (there are loads of subjects you can touch on here, e.g. writing a list of ingredients needed to tick off, counting, measuring and more).

The Homework Policy can be found in our Policy section. Our Learning @ Home document is designed for prolonged periods of learning out of school, but can be used or help during holidays or to supplement homework.

But before you get to the home learning, some messages for you ...

The Arts

Singing, dance, drama, art and music can be excellent methods of expression and are something many of our young people find relaxing and fun. More ideas for the arts can be found in the Learning @ Home document at the top of the page. See some videos from the staff ...
