Growth Mindset:

Has your child ever said to you ‘There’s no point, I’ll never be able to do it’ or avoided doing something because they’ve failed at it in the past? Children (and adults!) with a growth mindset believe that intelligence and abilities can be developed through effort, persistence, trying different strategies and learning from mistakes. This thinking is what we encourage at school and also works for home learning. Have a look at the poster and try it out!



All of your home learning work will be posted on Google classroom.

Each class teacher will upload a week of activities for you to do across the week. The activities will be on one document and include a selection of activities from all areas of the National curriculum. These are just for guidance. There is no pressure from us for you to complete every single one.

We recommend children in Y3 & 4 spend, each day, 4 hours on home learning. The suggested time spent on each subject for that days home learning will be set on the home learning by the class teacher. An 'average day' may be  60 minutes on English, 60 minutes on maths and 80 minutes on other curriculum subjects plus 20 minutes of reading and 20 minutes of exercise.

Work will be marked, and feedback or comments provided via Google Classroom.

Teachers will provide feedback every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Tuesday and Thursday will be used by them to prepare the work for the following week.

Please email your child’s class teacher with any queries that you have. 

We're always on the end of an email, so please make contact with us. Everything that you do with your child will make a difference so thank you.
