Home Learning Expectations

Home learning will be put on Class Dojo every Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. Each week children will practise spellings, reading and times tables daily. Additionally, there will be a maths challenge based on the learning from the week or a challenge to prepare for the next week. For topic, a task will be set that will focus on our curriculum drivers; so it may be a ‘revisit’ task of something which has been done in the topic lesson that week, it may be a ‘ready’ task which may be research or pre- learn something for a session or ‘reframe’ where the task will be applying learning into a different context. 

PE Days

PE is on a Wednesday and a Thursday. Please come to school in PE kits on these days.
