Home Learning for Term 6


Please find below the 'menu' of options for Home Learning produced by each year group as we start term 6.

Home Learning for Term 5


As per our letter sent 15.4.20 via Parent Hub, each year group has produced a 'menu' of options for Home Learning as we start term 5.  This consists of a variety of tasks to keep your child busy, including a choice of projects that are linked to learning that they would have been covering this term.  Documents are attached.  Please note that this is optional - some families like to have structured Home Learning but if your child finds these tasks in any way stressful, there is no need to insist that they complete the tasks.  We understand that it is most important for families to preserve their wellbeing at this difficult time.  If your child does complete a project, please be assured that it will be looked at and celebrated by their teacher.  We hope that the children enjoy completing what the teachers have prepared for them - we are looking forward to seeing what they produce!


With warm wishes from Minterne.
