This week’s homework is creative homework.
I can show a healthy balanced diet.
Here are some ideas to get you going:
- cook something healthy and take photos
- design a healthy eating poster
- collage of favourite foods using lots of different materials or paper
- a healthy food quiz
We’re looking forward to looking at your healthy ideas – might just take some of your ideas for some healthy eating in the half-term holiday!

This week’s homework is talk time.
There has been lots of learning going on in art this week. There are so many artists who have drawn and painted faces. Giuseppe Arcimboldo painted faces using images of fruit. Here is one of them:
Do you like it? Why?
What does it make you think of?
These are just some questions to help you talk about the painting.
We are looking forward to hearing your views when we discuss this on Wednesday 16 October.

This week’s homework is practice makes perfect.
Handwriting is very important and the sooner we get it right the better!
This week’s homework is practising round and back to form letters like a and c. If you are not sure about the handwriting scheme, please take a look at the website so that you are able to support your child – there is a very useful guide which goes through the basic rules that we follow.

I can show how I can look after my body.
This homework is to encourage the children to think about what they can do to ensure that their body is as healthy as possible. This will then lead into their learning next week.

This week’s homework is talk time.
How do we use our senses?
We will discuss this on Wednesday 25 September so that we are ready to learn more about our senses in our topic learning.

This week’s homework is Practice Makes Perfect – writing numbers correctly.
Please make sure that it is handed in by Wednesday 18 September.
If you looked in our handwriting books you would see that we have been practising writing numbers. Even though we start letters on the line, numbers are like capital letters: we have to start at the top. It’s important that we get this right.
Make sure you check our handwriting policy on the website if you are not sure or come and ask for a copy.

The first piece of homework in Year 1 is creative homework. This means that the homework can be presented in a variety of different ways – it’s up to you and your child! The only rule is that you can only use one page of the homework book (but flaps and fold-outs are sneaky ways to enlarge the space if needed!).
Homework needs to be handed in on Wednesday 11 September 2013.
“I can show what things are made of in my house.”
This homework is linked to a mini topic that we are doing on “Materials”. We have had a couple of lessons about materials so this is your child’s chance to think about what they have learnt so far. Here are some suggestions of things he / she could do:
- photos of different materials in the home
- groups of objects all made of the same material – photos or drawings
- rubbings / examples of different materials
- lists of things made of certain materials
Let’s be material detectives!

This week, your child has been taking part in a variety of activities as part of our Community Themed Week. One of these activities involved learning facts about different countries.
This week’s homework is creative. It is due in on Wednesday 10 July 2013.
I can show what I know about a country I have a connection with.
- produce a spider diagram of information
- draw pictures with labels
- write a fact file
- create a promotional leaflet for a tourism brochure
- design a homepage for a website about the country
…or think of another creative way of presenting their information.
This homework can be about any country of their choice, but it would be ideal if there is some sort of connection. This could be where your child was born, or where their family originate from; it could be where they have visited on holiday or even where they plan to visit in the future – any sort of connection would be good!

This week’s whole school homework is a Talk Time one, and it also involves completing the pupil health questionnaire sent home with your child today.
I can give my opinions on health issues.
Emotional health and obesity are the two main health targets we are focussing on to further our healthy schools status and the questions are linked to these areas. They include:
- Are you happy at school?
- What do you enjoy most about playtimes and lunchtimes?
Please support your child to complete the health questionnaire in order to find out their views on some of our key health issues at school.
Completed questionnaires to be returned by Wednesday 03 July.
