Shared Learning

At Monkhouse, home learning is shared with families and we put a great emphasis on this. Our shared learning focuses on cementing what children have been learning in school and focusses on practising what has been taught in class.

Each week our shared learning expectations are:


  • Home reading (4-5 times per week)
  • Spellings (either to practise or complete tasks on Doodle Spell) 
  • Maths tasks
  • Basic skills and grammar tasks
  • We also subscribe to Times Tables Rockstars so encourage this to be completed daily at home for children in year 2 and above


Children who are taking part in our Read Write Inc program will receive additional reading and may receive links to videos of sounds to practise at home. 



Shared learning is given out on a Friday and returned to school Thursday. We offer support in school for any children who choose to complete this in school or are unable to do so at home

In EYFS shared learning is set via Tapestry - an online learning journey. 

The shared learning set in EYFS is an important extension of the classroom learning. It helps to cement the ideas learnt at school and helps to deepen and further expand the children’s knowledge. Photos, videos and observations from both school and home can be shared via tapestry, helping to build a shared understanding of the children’s learning and development and how we can jointly help the child to teach their full potential. 

Promotion of shared learning in the EYFS also encourages positive foundations of home learning habits that can be built upon as they progress through their school years. 



Through shared learning we hope to inspire children to become accountable for their own learning, develop good work habits and encourage parents to become active participants in their child’s learning.
