Home Learning

Our view is that Home Learning should be an enjoyable experience for both you and your children and that it should be easy to complete during a busy week. It should be meaningful and valued by everyone, and our Home Learning Journeys form a lovely record of your child's home learning and the feedback they have received.

Each week, your child practices their number bonds (eg 1+9 = 10, 2 +8 = 10 etc) or multiplication tables. These are completed in the Mental Maths workbook. Your child also has spellings, completed in the Spelling book. They should read each day and you should record your comments in their Reading Records.

Each half-term, roughly, depending on the theme of learning, your child has a Home Learning project. These are completed in their Home Learning Journeys and can be done whenever you have time as long as they are handed in by the deadline.

Our policy is not to set home learning during the holidays, as we believe that holidays are for all the different and enriching family experiences that you can provide. However, we know that often you will want to do some learnig activities with your child, so below are websites that you can use for each year group.

Happy Home Learning!

Please find the current themed projects for each year group below. Please note hand in dates are dependent on each year group and all differ so please refer below.

 

Reception

As part of our theme ‘Journeys around the World’, we will be tasting lots of different foods. So far, we have tasted food from China. In the next few weeks we will be ‘visiting’ India, Italy and a few more exciting destinations to taste some more delicacies! To further the children’s learning we would like you to taste some different food from another country; this can be food from China or another of your choosing, you could visit a restaurant, have a take-away or try cooking something at home. Please record your home learning how you wish but here are some ideas – you could make a menu, draw a picture of your meal, recreate the food using collage materials! We love seeing your photos so please upload your food tasting experience to Tapestry or put some in the box below. Please let us know how you get on by evaluating your home learning in the box provided.

Please complete your project and return your Home Learning book by 29th March 2018. Happy tasting!

To support our current theme ‘Fire, Fire’ we have been learning all about the Great Fire of London.

We look forward to sharing your creations.

Year 3

Date given: 9/2/2018                         Date due in: 26/3/2018

We would like the children to research and produce a presentation about Stonehenge. We would love the children to record their presentation on an iPad/iPhone and then the short clip e-mailed into teachers if possible. This could be presented for example as a news report or documentary reporting findings. If you are unable to film your presentation, then please create a poster/slideshow and be prepared to perform a live presentation in our homework showcase. Be as creative as you like!

 We can’t wait to see what fabulous research you find!

 Homework to be emailed to:

Following on from our learning on Anglo-Saxons, please complete one of the following tasks:

  • Make an Anglo Saxon settlement – think about the materials that would have been used and how you can replicate them.
  • Create a powerpoint to inform us of Anglo Saxon village life – think about the roles of different people in the village.
  • Design a poster to show what type of clothing men and women used to wear – what fabric was available and what colours were used.
  • Find an Anglo Saxon recipe to create – how are you going to share your recipe with us? Are you going to take a photo?  Perhaps you may want to write a descrition of how it tasted?
