Home Learning

Parents and carers have hopefully found a new Home Learning book in their child’s bag at the weekend accompanied by a letter to tell them what it’s all about.

 

Basically, each week, all the children from Years 1 to 6 will be asked to learn something about a particular topic and to present their learning across two pages of their Home Learning book. The children were given the opportunity to start the first topic (Birds) in school. Tasks will be set on Thursdays and children should return the book on the following Tuesday.

 

We hope that the children will enjoy the freedom of presenting their learning however they wish and we look forward to seeing their efforts. There are some examples of the sort of thing the children might try below and on the Additional Latest News section on the website.

 

At the end of term, we will survey children, parents and carers to get their thoughts on this approach to home work but for now, we hope you enjoy the learning.

 

Below is a list of the Home Learning topics for this term.
