Homework this week is creative. It’s the third of three homework tasks this school year when we invite children to respond to something from a cultural or spiritual perspective (we’ve timed these so they fall close to religious festivals, from Eid to Easter).

I can respond to a piece of art.

This week, we’d like children to present their responses about a piece of art. Your child might think about the colours used in the artwork or the line or shapes. They may discuss the mood of the piece and decide if they like or dislike it.

However, your child might prefer to do the following:

I can show how I celebrate an occasion.

We invite children to respond to the sentence above – they might include a recount (like a diary entry), a report, draw pictures or use photographs to show how they celebrate an occasion.

 

 

It’s the half-term break…

We’ve started our Big Topic about farms! In only two weeks, children have already learnt about how butter is made, where corn is grown and in which country people eat mielies.

Here are some suggestions:

  • poster
  • poem
  • picture
  • map with information on
  • photographs of the animals on a farm with captions or labels
  • build a model
  • research different types of farms

The homework this week is creative and is due in on Wednesday 08 May 2013:

I know about push and pull forces.

We’ve finished with our mini-topic for science. We thought it would be good to see what children know about push and pull forces.

Some ideas:

  • a poem
  • a poster
  • some facts
  • do an investigation
  • research using ICT
  • photos
  • or your own idea

Homework this week is creative. It’s the second of three homework tasks this school year when we invite children to respond to something from a cultural or spiritual perspective (we’ve timed these so they fall close to religious festivals, from Eid to Easter).

I can respond to a programme or film I’ve seen.

We’d like children to present their responses about a recent programme or film they’ve seen. We’re interested to hear your child’s opinions and any connections they might have made between the programme or film and their own life. This might include pictures, an interview (you could write a fictional script between an interviewer and a character), a letter (eg to or from a character) – anything which might include your child’s responses!

However, your child might prefer to do the following:

I can show what Passover or Easter means to me and my community.

Recently, some children will have celebrated the Christian festival of Easter or the Jewish festival of Passover. 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), or any other creative response.

 

 

 

 

Super Science Day Talk Time

Posted on Wednesday 27 March 2013 by Mr Roundtree

We don’t normally set specific homework tasks in the holidays, but we encourage you to spend some time discussing the nine science activities your child will have taken part in, especially considering what they have learnt. The learning objectives were:

  • I know that dyes are made up of other colours
  • I know why objects float
  • I can create a gas with a solid and a liquid
  • I know that static electricity creates a charge
  • I know about irreversible changes
  • I know the effects of a chemical reaction
  • I know what exercise does to my body
  • I am aware of acids and alkalis
  • I know what happens when you mix water with oil

Check out the pictures from the day to help jog your child’s memory of each activity… Can they match the learning objective to the photo?
