This week’s whole school homework is moral themed and is a Talk Time homework. It is due in next Thursday, 08 October.

What makes someone beautiful?

We have been reading ‘The Ugly Five’ by Julia Donaldson. (This is a YouTube link. Top tip for watching YouTube with your child: go to the settings cog along the play bar and turn off autoplay – this avoids an inappropriate clip coming up automatically, and helps to discourage your child from passively watching clip after clip).  The animals are called ‘ugly’ in the beginning but then realise that they are actually lovely/beautiful. Talk about what makes an animal or person beautiful. For example:

  • Who decides what is beautiful?
  • Does it matter what you look like?
  • Is what a person does or says more important than what they look like?
  • How many different ways can you be beautiful or lovely?

This week, our homework is Talk Time: I can use the 8Rs to help me learn.

In school, we use the 8Rs for learning: ready, responsive, risk-taking, responsibility, resourceful, resilient, reflect and remember.

We’d like the children to discuss what these words mean to them. Below is a list of questions that might help with your discussion.

  • How do the 8 Rs help you in school?
  • When have you used the 8 Rs outside of school?
  • How could you explain the meaning of each word in the 8 Rs?
  • Which 8 R do you think you use the most?
  • Which 8 R could you use more often?
  • How could you use the 8 Rs at home?

Homework should be completed by Thursday 01 October 2020 and will be reviewed / celebrated in class. Please send any completed homework to Mrs Rowley ( stjamesy3y4@spherefederation.org )

This week’s homework is Talk Time and is due on Thursday 17 September.

What qualities do you look for in a friend?

This half term, our Christian value is friendship. In school and in collective worship, we will be looking at what makes a good friend and examples of being a good friend from the Bible. With your family, discuss the main question ‘what qualities do you look for in a friend?‘ along with the other suggestions underneath. Be prepared to talk about your answers in our homework review.

There’s an old saying that goes, “In order to have good friends, you have to be a good friend.”

What does that mean? Do you think it’s true? Why? What are the benefits of having friends who are different from us?
