This week, the whole school has the same Creative homework: I can see maths all around me.

Maths is all around us. But, how often do we appreciate this? This homework is all about spotting maths in our everyday lives – we’re exposed to it more than we realise sometimes. We’d like children to find some examples of maths from their everyday lives and show these creatively. There are many examples of maths in the world around us but here are a few examples:

•       travel, TV or film timetables
•       measuring ingredients
•       finding examples of shapes in buildings
•       counting out objects
•       spending money when shopping
•       %s in sales
•       cutting food into the correct amount of slices or pieces

Children should be ready to celebrate their learning in our weekly homework review in class by Thursday 03 October 2019. Please note: this homework should take no longer than 30 minutes.

When is it ok to take a risk?

Our living & learning statement this week is ‘I can take a safe risk’. This homework is all about discussing risks and when it is acceptable to take one. Talk about when risks are safe and unsafe and when we come across risks in our life: at home, online, at school, in the community etc.

This week’s homework is Talk Time and is due on Thursday 12 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. You may want to make notes (or ask an adult) in your homework book to help you.

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?

This week, the whole school has the same Creative homework: I can illustrate happy and healthy choices.

This homework links to our weekly living and learning statement and is something we talk about a lot in our school. Can you encourage your child to make a new healthy choice every day this week? Or think about one new healthy change your child can make? Try to help them make sure the choice is a realistic, achievable one, such as avoiding being on an electronic device after a certain time to help sleep, or adding one extra daily portion of vegetables to their diet each day.

As this is a Creative homework, children could respond in a variety of ways:

• Create a blog, video blog or diary to show the changes we’ve made.
• Create a poster convincing others to make a happy and healthy change.
• Make a cartoon strip in which a character makes a happy and healthy change.
• Write a song, poem or rap that will encourage others to make changes.
• Reflect on change they’ve made and how it made them feel.

There are of course lots of other ways to respond, too.

Children should be ready share, and celebrate, their homework in their class by Thursday 11 July 2019.
