What will Home-School Learning look like in Blue 6?

This half term we are focusing where we are in the world and where could we go in Geography. There will therefore be a work booklet for this half term. We ask that children complete at least 5 pieces of work/activities over the course of the half term. There are formal pieces of learning, alongside active learning opportunities including practical activities based around the topic. We will include a list of ideas for you to work on with your child.

We will also send home reading books each night and ask that you read with your child during the week.

How can you share your child’s home-school learning with us?

  • Send back any worksheets/activities/art work to school.
  • Put videos and/or photographs onto See Saw (through the message section).

 Home Learning: Science – Where are we in the World?
