Homework

Here is our homework takeaway menu for this half term.  Mains are tasks that children should be completing weekly.

Starters and sides can be completed at your child's leisure. Starters recap prior learned knowledge, and sides give children the opportunity to start learning about our future topics. Some of these tasks can be completed using Purple Mash's 2Publish software, which can be found on the tools menu of the site.
