In response to parental requests, we have decided to make this template available should you feel it would be helpful for your child when they are learning their spellings.   

Home Learning 

 

This week we would like to set a number of tasks, rather than setting specific home learning:

 

1. Please learn any lines you have in the production and be prepared to practice without scripts next week.

2. Please learn all words to all songs.

3. Make sure you have all kit sorted for PGL ahead of time - preparation is key for trips like these!

4. Find an interesting picture of yourself from your time at Sir Henry Fermor and have your adult email it in to the office.
