Home Learning

Campie believes in children having time to relax, reflect and rest after a busy day in their learning environments. That’s why our Home Learning policy is geared towards short activities that can be achieved throughout the week.

Children will receive home learning from their class teachers on a weekly basis (this may begin the week after a new term).

P1-2 will take their reading books home to practise their sight vocabulary (key words) and phonics (sounds). P3 upwards will take home new spelling words and a reading target (sometimes with questions). Children should use look, count, cover, write and check three times and complete an additional Spell Well task which can be found here.

The Scottish Government has produced several documents to help parents and carers support Literacy at home. You can find this guidance here.

We appreciate if these activities could be signed by parents / carers.

These items are usually due on a Friday unless stated by their class teacher.

If you feel your child would benefit from extra practice there are a number of useful websites which have many fun and engaging learning games, here are an example of a few:

  • Top Marks – games for every area of the curriculum
  • abcya.com – lots of games on almost everything (american based)
  • Primary Games Arena – almost everything you can think of
  • Primary Homework Help – great for project work
  • Grid Club – all sorts of Social Studies and Science stuff
  • Kiddle – like Wikipedia but better, aimed towards kids and so much easier to read
