“This school is great because all of the teachers are nice and friendly.” Jess Yr 3

Home Learning

We would strongly encourage all children to do any written task or learning challenges in a quiet environment; however we do not want this time to be stressful. Should you have any concerns, please contact your child's teacher.

General principles for home learning to be successful

  • All children will be set home learning tasks, as outlined in the school policy and brochure.
  • This will involve a whole range of activities and tasks and won't always require formal written tasks, we may ask children to research something or talk to adults (this is known as 'talk homework').
  • Parent/carers will be notified when children continually choose not to complete tasks.
  • Children should write their home learning tasks in their home-school diary. This diary is also an important means for parents/carers and teachers to communicate with each other.

We would love the children to find their 'Love of Reading' book, to read it and write a book review

                          

Our current text is The BFG by Roald Dahl. For your home learning we would like you to write your own story which includes a giant and a child. This could be any genre you like and can take place in a setting of your choice.

Don’t forget to include

  • Capital letters & full stops in the correct place
  • Expanded noun phrases
  • Adverbs
  • Commas
  • Exclamation marks
  • Possessive apostrophes
  • Similes
  • Fronted adverbials
  • Speech marks for direct speech
  • Synonyms for said

You can either type this or create a paper copy!

If you have this book at home please keep reading!

Religious Education 

We have been learning all about how Christians celebrate Easter. The teachers would like to know what celebrations or traditions are important to your family. This could be birthdays, weddings, Sunday lunch, Thursday evening at Nanny’s house.

You can present this in your own way and we look forward to sharing this together.
