This week’s homework is creative. It’s due in on Thursday 29 March.

I can show what I know about life cycles.

This week, our topic work has been looking at the life cycles of animals in particular frogs. Children can choose a new animal, or use a frog, and display their life cycle. This can be done in any creative way:

• A story
• A poem
• Instructions
• A comic strip
• An interview
• A game
• Scenarios

…or any other creative ideas!

Focus: Creative- with a bit of practice

During our work on playscripts, we have looking a lot at verbs: what they are; how to recognise them; how they change when used in different tenses and the spelling rules we need to use to do so.

Your task is to make a poster, leaflet or other form of presentation to show off everything you know about verbs.

Remember to include definitions, examples, tenses, first and third person and anything else you think is important.

This week’s homework is a practice makes perfect and is due on Thursday 15 March.

For the past two weeks, Year 1 and 2 have been learning about fractions:

• Year 1 have learned about 1/2  and 1/4.
• Year 2 have learned about 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and 3/4.

These are the definitions we have used for our fractions to help the children understand them. This works for both numbers and shapes.

• 1/2 – one equal part of two
• 1/4 – one equal part of four
• 1/3 – one equal part of three
• 3/4  – three equal parts of four

Have a look in the homework books for your child’s practice makes perfect homework based on our fractions learning this past fortnight.

Your child has a sheet of questions in their book to answer. They may make jottings on other pages if this helps them.
