Welcome to Mississippi!
Here are a few essential things you need to bring with you:
We've got a great new approach to Homework this year called Dip 'n' Do, whereby your child can choose from a selection of EIGHT homework subjects to do each half term. It is a really fun approach to working from home and will give the children some real choice. We have already found that the children want to engage with each other about it and with their parents and carers. It's exciting for us all. Here's how it works:
The children are required to complete the topics featured in the three coloured-in boxes but they then have a choice; they can choose at least three of the other boxes to dip into and do. Of course, they also have the choice to do all eight!
The tasks do not have to be completed on a weekly basis but they must all be handed in by the first day back after Half Term, and we still recommend that they dip into their homework and do a bit each week, so that they're not suddenly cramming everything into the break.
If you've mislaid your Dip 'n' Do sheet, please ask your Teacher, NOW!
Happy Dipping and Doing!
