We hope you all enjoy a well-deserved break and come back to school ready and fresh to learn on 02 January.

As it’s the holidays, there’s no homework this week but there’s a few things we think you should try and do over the festive break:

  • spend time with family
  • spend time with friends
  • play outside
  • throw a snowball
  • build a snowman
  • read a book, or two (or three)
  • do something nice for your parents or carers
  • spend some time relaxing and being mindful – remember our workshop?
  • investigate something you observe
  • be polite to everyone you meet
  • eat a few treats (and plenty of veggies!)
  • and, last but not least, have a generally awesome two weeks

The homework this week is creative and is due on Thursday 14 December.

I can show what I know about a festival.

​Around this time, ​many children in school will celebrate​ or will have celebrated​ a religious festival of some sort. This might ​be the Christian festival ​of Christmas ​(of course, celebrated by many non-Christians​ in the UK, too​)​. It might also be the Sikh and Hindu festival Diwali​, ​the Jewish festival of Hanukkah, and the Chinese New Year festival which ​is early in the new year.

There are lots of other festivals and celebrations which you and your child together might want to reflect on.  You can research more festivals.

We invite children to respond to the sentence above – they might include a recount (like a diary entry), pictures, an interview (perhaps in a script).  Your child might also choose to research a completely unknown festival, or they might even think about creating a brand new festival, one that everyone will celebrate.

For all children in Year 1 – Year 6, the homework this week is creative and is due in on Thursday 30 November.

Following our whole school themed week this week, Who do you think you are? Children should consider the following statement by showing what they have learnt.

I know what community is.

As a guide, children could think about these aspects.

  • What is community?
  • Where is their community? Children could consider their school community to local community to wider community.
  • Who is in their community? Children could consider visits/visitors during our themed week.
  • Why is community important? Children could consider the terms identity and diversity discussed during our themed week.
  • How can we be a good citizen in our community?

This could be done in any creative way.

  • a story
  • a poem
  • a map
  • a comic strip
  • an advert
  • an interview
  • a game
  • a model
  • …or any other creative ideas!

For all children in Year 1 – Year 6, the homework this week is talk time and is due in on Thursday 23 November

Which charity should our school support?

Throughout the year, our school will be holding different fundraising events and it’s important that the children have a say in which charity we support. Have a chat with your child and talk about which sorts of charities they would like to support. Write the suggestions and we’ll vote for our chosen charity during our homework review.

You may want to focus on children’s charities. Or, you may have family or friends who work for or have been supported by a charity.

This week the homework is ‘Practice Makes Perfect’.

There is a maths activity to complete: multiples, factors and times tables facts.

Click here to play a fun game all about factors!

It’s the half-term holidays…

Posted on Friday 20 October 2017 by Mr Roundtree

…and so there’s no specific homework next week. This is in-line with our Homework Policy.

During the half-term, please encourage your child to read each day, even if just for 15 minutes. As well as their current book, reading comics, newspapers, websites are all good – and why not take a trip to the library!

It would also be really helpful to help your child brush up on their times tables. Children in Year 2 should know x2, x5 and x10 (and the related division facts) by the end of the year – so give them a head start now! By the end of Year 4, children should know all their tables up to 12 x 12 (and the related division facts).

And make sure they enjoy the break, too: perhaps an autumn walk, a day out, a trip to the cinema… There are lots of things going on in Leeds – check them out.

Whatever you get up to, we’re looking forward to seeing you again on Monday 30 October.
