Home Learning

Our Home Learning is set every half term.  The idea is that children have a choice for their home learning, depending on their desires, parent time and learning interest.

All the tasks are ranked by a hot chilli – the ‘Peri-ometer’. The hotter the task the more difficult it is. (We use this language in class as well, you can access a mild, hot or spicy challenge in class).  We expect each child to attempt at least one spicy challenge over the half term.

The Home Learning sheets provide details about weekly expectations for Reading, Spelling and Maths and also provides nine different activities to choose from.  Select the year group and term from the table below to view.

Curriculum
Our curriculum is bespoke to us and is driven by the fact that we want children to leave the Mill secure in their own identity; familiar with their own community and sense of family; skilled in making connections with friends and the wider world.
Pupil Premium
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities. We continuously reflect on the best practice there is available in order to have the greatest impact.
Newsletters
Our regular newsletters are one of many ways that we celebrate their amazing successes, hard work and adventures. We always love to share how 'Forever Proud' we are of the children in The Mill community.
