|Please take a look at our class blog to take a look at some of the wonderful activities we enjoy in class.|
Home Learning Resources
Each week, homework will be uploaded online, for children to complete. Children will have two pieces to complete, usually one piece of English and one piece of Mathematics. It is also important that children continue to regularly practise spellings & number bonds.
Enrichment tasks will be set every half term 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.
Autumn 1 Enrichment Task
Each half term, a new Enrichment Project will be set for the children to complete. Further details can be found on Google Classroom, by logging on through Wonde.
