Home Learning 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 children from Reception 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 each school year.

Each half-term, an 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. During each holiday there is also a holiday project which encourages everyone in the family to participate in a creative, seasonal activity.

Residential School Journeys Between the ages of 7 -11, children have the opportunity to travel out of London on activity breaks with other children. In addition to enriching their curriculum experience, these overnight stays provide children with a chance to be independent and develop their friendships with classmates. Parents pay a contribution towards the cost of these visits.

“The best memories at Globe were the school journeys especially Isle of Wight. I loved it because of the activities and sharing a room with my friends!” Year 6 pupil

Music Tuition We ensure that specialist music tuition is available to all. When children first join, they participate in informal, collaborative group sessions with a musician who encourages them to develop their singing voice, song writing skills and understanding of rhythm and patterns in music. As they move into year 1, a percussionist teaches children to play African drums. From year 2, children are taught about musical notation and begin to play violins before choosing brass and woodwind instruments in years 5 and 6 as well as steel pans. Choirs, orchestras and weekly whole-school singing sessions add to children’s musical experiences at Globe. The school choir and orchestra showcase their talents in local performances and at our annual Summer Music Festival.
