This week’s homework is creative.

Competition Time!

This week, we have been really lucky to have Mat from Leeds United Foundation visit school. He spoke to us about the Leeds United values: family, pride, innovation, ambition and graft.

For homework, I would like you to create a poster that shows how these values relate to our Christian values: friendship, love, perseverance, honesty, forgiveness and peace and our school vision which is to be a happy and healthy place to achieve and believe.

The posters will be sent to Mat, who will judge the poster and the winner will receive a family ticket to go and watch Leeds United V Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday 11 January 2020!

This week, the whole school has the same Talk Time homework: Which charity should our school support?

Next week, a charity will be decided for us to support for the year ahead – for example, when we have a performance, we’ll collect money for this particular charity. What charity does your child think we should support?

You could talk about:
what a charity is
why charities are important
what sort of work they do
charities that have meaning to your family, to school or the community
national and international charities and their work

This week, the whole school has the same Talk Time homework: Which charity should our school support?

Next week, a charity will be decided for us to support for the year ahead – for example, when we have a performance, we’ll collect money for this particular charity. What charity does your child think we should support?

You could talk about:

  • what a charity is
  • why charities are important
  • what sort of work they do
  • charities that have meaning to your family, to school or the community
  • national and international charities and their work

Next week, each class will vote (because in our school we make democratic decisions) for the charity they would like to support to form a shortlist. Then, our recently elected School Council will decide which charity we will support for the next year.

This week, the whole school has the same Creative homework which children should be ready to discuss as part of our homework review on Thursday 21 November.

I know how to STOP bullying.

This homework is a response to our learning this week during anti-bullying week. Throughout the week, each class has had the chance to talk about what bullying is, what the different types of bullying are and how we can STOP it: 

  • Start
  • Telling
  • Other
  • People

Bullying is when you hurt someone, physically or emotionally, several times on purpose.

As the homework is Creative, you can do anything you want to respond to the statement. Here are a few ideas to help you:

  • Create a cartoon strip of a bullying scenario and how it is solved.
  • Create an acrostic poem using the word bullying.
  • Write your own ‘kindness statements’ for your class.
  • Create a scenarios quiz for your class to decide what they would do.

This week, the whole school has the same Talk Time homework. In preparation for the upcoming School Council elections, children should complete one of the following tasks:

I can prepare a speech (School Council elections).
I know the importance of voting.

What makes a good school councillor has been considered by our current school council.
‘use all the 8 Rs for learning’
‘be respectful’
‘help others’
‘be a good speaker and listener (to members of your class and in the meetings)’
‘tell the truth’
‘be confident with your ideas’
‘accept the views of others even if you don’t agree’
‘be friendly and approachable’
‘make good choices in class and around school’

Hints for your speech include:
What skills and abilities would a good school councillor have?
What are you particularly good at that would help you to be a great school councillor?
What do you think would make the school better?
What could you do that people would really like?Think of things that are realistic, maybe that you could do yourself, rather than having to ask other people to do.

Good luck to all children who decide to stand in the elections.

If you choose not to stand in the election, you should instead consider the importance of voting and democracy.

  • You see your friend cheating in a maths test.
  • You’ve been invited to two friends’ parties on the same day.
  • Someone is saying unkind things about your friend behind their back.

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
  •       distances on road signs
  •       %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.
