Learning at Home

At Newtongrange, we believe that home learning should be enjoyable, motivating and challenging. Home learning should not be stressful, tiring or lead to conflict between you and your child.
Home learning may be an extension of school learning, providing an opportunity for you, as a parent or carer, to be involved in your child’s education. However, it may also involve activities that are not given by the school, such as visiting a museum or reading a book from home.
Appropriate information and support is available to enable you to develop your child’s learning at home. This is provided through weekly home learning activities, various opportunities to come into class or meet with the teacher throughout the year and also through information for supporting your child’s learning at home in relation to literacy, numeracy and learning across the curriculum, detailed within this section.
