Jesus said, "I have come in order that you may have life - life in all its fullness."

Our RE enriches all of our learning. This half term, we are looking at the question...

or charity and generosity?

Homework in the Autumn term
Homework will be set every week.
Children will be expected to complete their reading, weekly spellings and times tables activities.
This will support their progress throughout the year in literacy and numeracy.
In addition to this, children will have homework which is linked to our current Learning Challenge.
Children will be able to earn points for each activity they complete, working towards a target and earning a prize when their target is reached.
