Homework

Each week, children have been asked to spend a couple of sessions  on Century Tech to work through their personalised pathways  (at the top of the screen on Century Tech). The activities are personalised and include short teaching videos which aim to develop English and maths skills further. Children will also receive weekly 'nuggets' of English and maths, set by the class teacher, to consolidate our current learning. New homework nuggets are added each Wednesday. Please support your child to complete these tasks by the following Wednesday.
