Home Learning Resources
Enrichment tasks will be set every few weeks to encourage the children to work independently or with someone from home to create a piece of work to be proud of. We like to let the children choose how they would like to present their work, this gives them the opportunity to be as creative as they would like. If you would like to use any art resources or if children need time in school to complete their task, please let us know.
Pupils are encouraged to use Google Apps for homework and to share information. https://mail.google.com/

To further encourage 'Reading for Pleasure' we are using 'Accelerated Reader'. Children will need to read for 20 minutes at school, and 20 minutes at home each day and log their reading in their reading log books. On completion of a book children will take a short quiz on a computer at school to check their understanding of the book. Children are welcome to read their personal books from home - to check if there is an associated quiz please use the Accelerated Reader Book Find website here.
