We use Learning Logs to make homework more fun and to encourage children to extend and consolidate the learning that has taken place in school in a more creative and independent way. Each pupil has the freedom to express their understanding in any way they like – they may choose to draw a picture or a mind map or a piece of writing.
Use the internet to help you with research and ideas but lots of printed sheets (with some difficult words) on't help you to present to your group.
Useful things, felt pens, coloured pencils, post-its, glue, scrap paper the list is endless !
Homework is an extension of school work so don;t forget our presentation target
Here are some examples of ways to present your work. You will need to talk about your work and what you have found out so you will need o be able to read it.
Please remember to bring your reading books in every day and try to read at home every night. Don't forget to also practice telling the time and your times tables. Remember, little and often.
Don't Forget ...
Please remember to bring your games kit in on Monday and Wednesday !!
Also, dinner money is now £2.20 per day. Accounts need to be in credit.
(Remember all money sent into school must be in an envelope with the child's name, class, amount of money and what the money is for written clearly on it.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.)
