SUMMER HOLIDAY REVISION PACK
Your summer holiday revision pack will help you to transition to your new class.
It will also help you to revise key skills, which you may have forgotten, so that you will be ready for work in September. Most of all, enjoy the fun activities in your pack! Please do call us if you have any questions.
HOME STUDY AT YOUR OWN PACE
In addition to your regular work with your teacher, these websites will be really exciting and useful for home learning. They bridge curriculum areas and are suitable to embed learning already done in schol, as well as providing support for learning new concepts.
There is a possibility that there will be advertising on some of these sites, so please parents, have a look at them first, with your child if you wish, and decide which ones suit you best. Partnership between parent and child in home learning is essential, so that you can support your child to find a level that both suits and challenges them. And of course, there are lots of opportunities for pupils to have independent learning time on these sites.
But most of all, enjoy your online learning!
