Home Learning and Remote learning

Home learning and Aiming High Points

The expectation of home learning at Wilbury Junior School is as follows;

  • At least 3 x reading each week- parents sign to say in-home reading  record books - this will earn the children  1 point- reading 5 or more times will earn the children 2 points.
  • Earning 1000 coins on TTRS (Timetable Rockstars) - some children who find maths challenging may be asked to do 500 points - the teacher will inform the child about this
  • Spellings- children will have spelling on a piece of paper, they need to write the spellings out three times and draw a small picture of each spelling- this helps to cement the word in their long-term memory - children will write the words in sentences back in school and have dictation at the end of the week.
  • Year 6 will have additional tasks over the year to support them with their SAT’s and to support with transition to secondary school.

Children are able to earn more points for additional learning that is of quality that is done outside of school and brought in. This work will be displayed and recognised by adults. There is nothing greater than having children learning something at school and going home and wanting to do more. This can be in any subject.

The children earn points and ‘what do points make? PRIZES!’ Each term children can swap their aiming high points for prizes or save the points up to get a bigger prize next term or at the end of the year.

It is an expectation that children take part in home learning as this supports them in school with their learning in school and progress. If children do not complete the home learning they will stay in at break or lunch to complete this. Please encourage your child to do this as it really does create good learning behaviour and organises them for secondary school.

Additional Home Learning Opportunities


Many children choose to complete additional homework linked to their class learning and this is celebrated and displayed in their classroom. Extra homework points are awarded for the effort and quality of this work.


Additionally, throughout the year, the children are encouraged to take part in additional home learning linked to curriculum areas, charity events or religious or cultural celebrations.


Below are some of the additional opportunities that have taken place so far this year...


Autumn term - Pupil Profiles, Children in Need bookmark competition, Black History Month - profile challenge, Diwali research/crafts, Garden House Hospice Tractor Christmas lights competition, Wilbury Parliament writing competition.


Remote Learning


During the Covid Pandemic, Wilbury Junior School used Google classroom to support remote learning. We continue to use Google Classroom for home learning and in class. Each child has a google classroom login and is shown how to access this within the school and outside of school. Each pupil in Years 3 and 4 have their own Chromebook to use in school and will stay with them as part of their journey through school.
