This week’s homework is creative and is due on Thursday 17th May.

This half term, our topic is “inventions that changed the world”. So far, we have looked at the telephone, invented by Alexander Graham Bell, and bridges designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

Isambard Kingdom Brunel was a famous engineer. He built bridges, tunnels, railways, docks and ships. Many of the works Isambard created and designed pushed the boundaries of what people were used to.

Your creative homework is to design a new item for Isambard to build. You can choose to design a bridge, a tunnel, a railway, a steam engine or an invention of your choice. Remember, Isambard pushed the boundaries of what we already know – try to make yours different to the items we already use.

This week’s homework is a practice makes perfect and is due on Thursday 10 May.

Year 1:

We’ve been looking at place value this week during Maths. We’ve practised our counting skills – forwards and backwards – and looked at how many tens and ones are in two-digit numbers (e.g. 46 can be partitioned into 40 + 6 or 4 tens and 6 ones). Our homework is to practise skills relating to place value.

Year 2:

This week, we’ve recapped and extended our learning about column addition and subtraction. We’ve learned how to carry a ten if our ones column is more than 10 and how to exchange (borrow) a ten if we need to subtract more ones that we have. Our homework is practising both of these skills along with some word problems. Don’t forget, in subtraction you don’t always need to exchange – check your numbers first! Column addition and subtraction is easier if we are confident and quick with our basic number facts – play Hit the Button, number bonds, for some quick recall practice.

Recently, we have been working on using apostrophes for possession – they can be complicated, especially when plurals are involved:

• One dog’s kennel was brand new. (One single dog owns the kennel.)
• The other dogs’ homes were older but more homely. (More than one dogs have a home.)

Your task is to create a poster that shows the main rules for using apostrophes for possession. You might want to draw lots of pictures as examples or simply make a little sentence display. The choice is yours.

A link to helpful information about apostrophes can be found here.

A new nature reserve has just opened in Wetherby and the local council needs to get more visitors to come along and visit.

Your task is to create a poster, leaflet, advert or maybe even a television commercial to promote the nature reserve and persuade people to come and visit.

The reserve has a wide range of habitats for many animals, paths for nice scenic walks and even a café.

A link to a real-life local nature reserve can be found here. It may give you some more ideas.
