Home Learning – Berwick Class

 

 

Planning – Week Beginning 22.3.21

Please attempt at least 1 or 2 activities every day

Some activities maybe repeated to ensure your child is confident with the task, this would happen in school as well

Parents – can you write on your child’s work to say how they have done e.g. no help, spoken help, confident work. Have a think about what their next steps could be

If you do not have the ingredients to make the recipe (don’t worry there may not be a recipe every week) – cook something different e.g. fairy cakes, rice crispy buns, or help to make the evening meal. If you do not have the materials to make the art/craft activity – draw a picture instead.
