There will be no homework for this week due to the sleepover next week.
Please make sure you revise all of your old spellings for next Wednesday (see spelling page for more info!) and continue to read every night and record this in either your homework diary or reading record.
Next week is geography week in school and we are thinking all about Climate Change in our world.
We will be looking at what Christian Aid does to help our world and how we can support this too.
There are lots of Christian teachings that inspire Christian Aid’s work.
Look at the outlines below and then draw a picture that represents one of these teaching. Then write a paragraph explaining why you have chosen to draw what you have.
Our topic this half term is Brazil. You have all spent an hour researching Rio de Janeiro in class (you may have done this independently or with others). Your research sheet is coming home tonight (Friday). Create a leaflet based on this research about Rio de Janeiro on the plain piece of paper sent home with your research.
Please do not glue your leaflets in your homework books as they are going on display - return them in the plastic wallet your research sheet came home in.
Below are some extra research sheets created by some of the children in our class and some example leaflets.
Our first topic will be place value. Have a go at the following questions in your homework book. Please return your homework book completed next Thursday.
In Key Stage 2, children are given weekly homework to enrich their experiences of the curriculum and consolidate learning. Homework will be a literacy or maths task or something relating to the current topic. Homework will be set on Friday on the class page of the school website and the children will need to return their homework books the following Thursday with the work inside. Children can make notes if there is not access to a printer. The homework book will be signed by a member of staff before returning. If your child is finding a set piece challenging, please let us know before the Thursday it is due in. This will ensure that the children are able to complete the piece and build their confidence.
Weekly spelling will be uploaded to this section. Children should practice these ready for the following Friday. We encourage children to read every night and for them to talk about their books with you and what they have read. This greatly helps their understanding of texts. We appreciate that people also have busy lives too, therefore we expect that children are reading 5 out of 7 nights per week. Reading records will be checked and signed on Monday and Thursday by a member of staff. Please sign every time your child reads.
We thank you for your support.
