Your child will be bringing home their SAT practice papers each week so you may check their performance, as requested by some parents. Please note these papers have been marked together with your child so they can track their development.

ART

This term, we have studied South African tales; specifically, we looked at and innovated Handa's Surprise. This week's homework task is for the children to make an artwork depicting a fruit basket.

TOPIC

This term, our topic is "Where would you prefer to live - Kenya or the UK?" and since we have been examining homes in both countries, the homework this week is to learn about African huts and build a three-dimensional model of one. This homework is not due until the end of May.
