Our Ethos

At Cranborne, we understand that the impact of parental support for children’s learning and development is crucial. With the right home learning structure in place, children can make accelerated progress and go on to truly reach their full potential. We are also aware that homework can, at times, add to the stresses of family life and can become a burden. Therefore, we streamline our home learning to ensure children are focusing on the right things in order to make the biggest impact on their learning whilst also giving families more time to enjoy other important activities together. 

The focus for all homework is centred around daily reading and learning core maths skills; the things we believe will give children the best advantage in the classroom. There may also be bespoke homework given to children from time to time which will be tailored to their individual needs which could include spelling, grammar, times tables or work on a specific concept. 

 

Reading

Reading is a fundamental skill that is essential in order for children to access all other areas of the curriculum. At Cranborne, we expect children to read every day during the week. This is a non-negotiable requirement.  

Here are 10 important reasons why!

  1. Children who read often and widely get better at it.
  2. Reading exercises our brains.
  3. Reading improves concentration.
  4. Reading teaches children about the world around them.
  5. Reading improves vocabulary and language skills.
  6. Reading develops a child's imagination.
  7. Reading helps children to develop empathy.
  8. It's fun!
  9. It's a great way to spend time together.
  10. Children who read tend to achieve better at school.

Maths

Children’s ability to quickly recall core maths knowledge including number bonds, doubles, times tables and key number facts forms the foundation of all maths learning. It allows children to grasp more difficult concepts more quickly; opening up wider opportunities to access higher level skills in the classroom. Maths skills practise will be given to children each week and as and when they need to practise a specific skill. It might be whole class practise or targeted to the individual.
