    Question at home vs. in my home

    I want to know the usage of "at home" vs. "in your home"
    such as " what do you do at home (or) in your home?"

    And also teach me about the usage of "at school" vs. "in your school"
    like, "when i was at school (or) in my school"...

    I'm a beginning learner of English.

    Please, make me happy about this.

    at home is an idiomatic expression.
    in my home=inside my house, not outside.
    The same works for "school".
