 Summer Term 2017 


Year 3 are highly commended for their farm project!

We are delighted that Year 3 were awarded a Highly Commended for their Alresford Show farm project.  The judges who came to our school said “The work was all well-presented and produced to a high standard.  It was clear that the children had learnt a lot whilst on the trip and been inspired to work hard on the class base tasks. The judges particularly like the pupil’s scientific approach to the growing of their beans and how well they understood the need for warmth, water and sunlight.  The farm machinery was also well planned and they were impressed with the children being encouraged to review the success of their work and assess how they could improve.”  A huge well done to the Year 3 pupils and a special thank you to Tyler, David and Brooke from 3G, Manjot and Nathan M from 3W and Haydn and Daisy from 3S for welcoming and confidently presenting our learning to the judges.

Home Learning Timetables

Our family support worker Mrs Lee would like to share these printable resources for you to use with your children to help plan and make their home learning more manageable.

When your child receives their home learning:

  • Encourage them to plan what home learning they will do, when and how much.
  • Spread the home learning out over the week – little and often e.g. 10-15 minutes per session.
  • Give a small, immediate reward.
  • Remind your child that if they don’t do their home learning at the agreed time, there won’t be a reward.
