Home Learning

At Wildmoor Heath School, we believe that home learning plays a crucial part in every child’s education. It gives children the opportunity to rehearse key skills and deepen their understanding of concepts taught in class.  

We want all the children to be strong in the basics of reading, writing and maths. Therefore, below we have outlined what children should be doing at home in each year group to support their learning and progress.
