Home Learning

At Hudson we believe that Parents, carers and families are by far the most important influences on children’s lives. Parents who take on a supportive role in their children’s learning make a difference in improving achievement and behaviour. Their support can play a vital role at all stages of education.

The active involvement of parents in the life of the school can help promote a learning community in which pupils can engage positively with school staff and their peers. Hudson understands the benefits from developing positive partnerships with parents by involving them in all decisions affecting their children’s education and learning.

Homework is one place we start at Hudson in forging strong relationships, building communication networks and up-skilling parents and families.  We invest in a number of resources that build parental skill and enable them to further learning in the home.

All resources are accessed by each individual child with unique user names and passwords provided by school.

New! During the summer holidays teachers recommend activity books for families to keep learning in the home alive and prepare children for their return in September.  Advice and guidance is provided for families, but again this link between home and school is an essential part of learning growth and continued progress for each child.

When will my child have home learning?

Hudson Primary has adopted a timetable to help children and parents know when to expect home learning.  Each week teachers will send a Class DoJo message to give detail of text book study pages to focus on and mark together as a family after completion.  However there are also termly Learning Journey projects and comprehension tasks given as additional pieces each half term.
