Autumn Optional Home Learning Tasks
These Home Learning Tasks are optional - you can choose 4 activities to complete over the whole term, or more if you like!
The expectation is that you will put in care and effort and complete it to the best of your ability. Upon completion of 4 activities you will be rewarded with an EMPATHY point for each to go towards your class EMPATHY total.
You can present your work in an appropriate style of your choice – a poster, model, booklet, diagram, leaflet etc. and it may be word-processed or completed by hand.
You can download the current Home Learning documents below. If you need a paper copy please contact the School Office
We look forward to seeing your work!

Top Tips for Parents/Carers
•Help your child prepare a daily and weekly timetable. It may help to follow the usual school timetable but perhaps working to the child’s preferred hours.
•Give your child encouragement. These are challenging times. Such a sudden change will be unsettling for many children.
•If your child gets stuck on a topic, see if you can offer practical solutions, such as finding a website with further information.
•Encourage your child to email their teachers if they need help that you can’t provide.
•Review your child’s progress daily. Make sure they are sticking to their timetable, are not cutting corners and are producing work to the standard of which they are capable.
•Your child may complete their work more quickly while schooling at home. So reward them with time off to do an activity they enjoy such as kicking a football in the garden or watching a favourite TV programme.
