At Dubai Heights Academy our approach to home learning is based upon a positive partnership between families and staff which enable children to make links between their learning in school and learning at home. There are a number of regular, key homework activities that children from Foundation Stage 2 to Year 6 are expected to undertake to support their development in English and mathematics (i.e. reading, spellings and practice of number facts).
In addition to paper-based homework activities, we maintain a number of online subscriptions to educational websites. Children can independently access these sites from home. Login details for these sites are shared with children and their families when they join the school and at the start of the school year.
Each half-term an (Optional) open-ended home learning project provides children and their families the opportunity to follow a more personal line of enquiry or investigation on a particular topic.
