This week’s homework is practice makes perfect and is due on Thursday 14 March.

Use your knowledge of fractions and equal parts to complete this challenge. Remember, you need to shade 1/2 or 1/4 of the shape (which may be more than one square).

Year 1– You must think carefully about what a half should look like. The challenge is to find as many ways as possible to show 1/2 on the shape. A key phrase to remember is -there must be equal parts.

Year 2– You must think carefully about what one quarter should look like. The challenge is to find as many ways as possible to show 1/4 on the shape. A key phrase to remember is -there must be equal parts.

If you want to do some extra practice, check out this great game for free. Select either [half/not half] or [half/ not a quarter] in the middle.

This week, our whole school homework is Creative:

I can present a summary of our class novel so far.
Every class in our school is currently enjoying their class novel topic . As such, we’ve read quite a bit of our books. This week, children should summarise what they’ve read so far. A good summary would give an overview of what’s happened, focusing on key events and characters. There are many ways in which children could choose to respond to this but here’s a few ideas…

· use an app to create a movie trailer for what’s happened so far
· create a timeline of key events
· turn what’s happened so far into a short comic
· write a song, rap or poem about one of the main characters/events
· create an image about a key event
· draw a portrait of a main character and label their characteristics
However children decide to respond, their efforts will be celebrated as part of our weekly homework review in class. This homework is due by Thursday 07 March 2019.

This week, the whole school has the same creative homework which is due in on Thursday 14 February 2019.

I can show different ways to stay safe.

This week, we have enjoyed a staying safe themed week. We’ve had lots of visitors and covered a range of important safety-related topics. There are many ways, and many different situations, in which we need to keep safe: at home, at school, in our environment and online.

Children should think about the situations where they need to keep safe and who might help them to stay safe. This could be done in any creative way:

• a story
• a poem
• instructions
• a comic strip
• an interview
• a game
• scenarios

…or any other creative ideas!

The homework will be reviewed as part of the themed week learning.

This week, the whole school has the same Talk Time homework:

What is a drug?

This homework, which links to our Living and Learning statement, is a first step in children becoming aware of drugs. There are a few key points you may wish to talk about at home. Children need to be aware that some drugs are helpful, some are harmful. Some are legal, some are illegal. Don’t forget to consider that even the legal or helpful ones can be harmful.

Below are some question prompts that could help shape your discussion…

· What is a good definition for a drug?

· What is a drug? What is not a drug?
