Time Table

Home Practice

This year, we are aiming to go paperless with the home practice that we set. Weekly tasks will be posted on Google Classroom. The purpose of this website is to make home practice more engaging and enjoyable for your child. It also provides them with the opportunity to develop their 21st Century skills.

Furthermore, all students now have access to two exciting new educational resources: RAZ Kids Plus and Mangahigh. You can click on the name of the underlined websites for quick links. Students have been provided with login details for both sites and can use them at their leisure. Teachers are also able to assign tasks via these websites, the details of which will be posted on Classroom.

In addition, Google Classroom can be downloaded on a phone, tablet, or other electronic device through the app store, allowing students to access this website on multiple devices.
