Marlborough's Magic Menus

We are delighted to introduce the ‘Marlborough Magic Menu’. A new, whole-school approach to home learning. The menu has been designed so that all learners can access it, with a range of tasks varying in difficulty and linking to the wide curriculum offered here at Marlborough. 

At the beginning of each term, children receive a new ‘Marlborough Magic Menu’ in their home learning book. Each week, they must choose and complete one activity. This should be clearly labelled and evidenced in their book. 

There are six main areas of study: English, Maths and Problem Solving, Science, History/Geography/RE, Creative Arts and Health and Wellbeing. These have been carefully planned for to ensure coverage across the curriculum. Child complete activities from all areas of study by the end of the term. 

Coinciding with our whole-school behaviour policy and our commitment to positive reinforcement, children who achieve over 20 points by the end of the term will be awarded with extra credits to spend in the Going for Green shop. Similarly, those children who do not complete one activity from the ‘Marlborough Magic Menu’ each week will receive a Red for incomplete home learning. 

To the right you will find an overview of tasks to be completed at home throughout the week such as weekly spellings, times tables practice and reading at home.
