Home Learning

Please find copies of home learning below. Children can choose a piece of work to complete from the grid each week and record this in their home learning books. We celebrate home learning on Wednesday afternoons and love to see models, photographs of cooking at home videos of experiments, PowerPoints or art work that we can display in our rooms, on our year group page and on our Twitter feed!
