Home Learning

At Columba:
We acknowledge that home is a place of genuine learning which ably supports learning at school.
We believe that parents are the first educators of their children and that the school acts in partnership with parents.
We believe that the time given by parents is the best example of life-long learning that children receive.
We believe home activities can be challenging, purposeful and open-ended.
 

Home Learning (Homework) at Columba, takes the form of an activity grid which is sent home on a regular basis

The activities included on the grid are designed to:

  •  consolidate learning at school
  •  provide regular Reading, Writing and Numeracy activities 
  • develop organizational and time-management skills to promote effective study habits
  •  acknowledge extra-curricula, family and leisure activities as valid learning experiences
  •  enable students to pursue areas of personal interest or specific needs
  •  provide parents with opportunities to share their talents and gifts and be a model for life-long learning
