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 advert
  • 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?

· Are all drugs bad?

· Why might some people need to take medicines?

· Who can prescribe medicine?

· Who should administer medicine?

· What should you do if you find some medicine?

· Should you take medicine that isn’t yours?

Children should be prepared to discuss what they’ve talked about at home during our homework review next week. This homework should be completed by Thursday 31 January.

This week, the whole school has the same Creative homework:

I can show different ways to make things better.

This homework, which is due on Thursday 24 January, is an opportunity for children to reflect on our living & learning statement for this week: I can make things better.

Children should think about ways to make things better in a variety of different situations and contexts:

in a friendship group
at playtime
at home
with siblings
out and about (countryside, park)
the wider environment (recycling)

You could consider…

  • · Why should we try and make things better?
  • · How do we do this?
  • · When should we apologise?
  • · What is the effect it has on others around us when we make things better?
  • · Older children might want to consider the benefits of restorative justice.

Don’t forget to be creative! Produce a report or diary; capture photos of people making things better; create rules for better games at play times; make a poster about how to say sorry; or, think of your own creative response.

This homework will be celebrated in our weekly homework review.

This week’s homework is practice makes perfect:

 I can add and subtract fractions.

This homework is an opportunity to show what you have learnt about adding and subtracting fractions.

Can you show how to add/subtract fractions with the same denominator? Eg; 2/5 + 1/5 = 3/5

Can you show how to add/subtract fractions with different denominators? Eg; 2/3 + 1/6 = 5/6

Year 6: Can you show how to add/subtract mixed numbers? Eg; 1 2/3 + ¾ = 2 5/12

You can draw pictures, write calculations and write number stories to show you can add and subtract fractions.
