This week’s homework is Creative.

I can create a business idea.

As part of our ‘My Money’ week, children are asked to come up with a business idea for their homework. It could be anything designed to make money – whether that’s a new product or providing a service. It could be a new invention, an adaptation of something existing or something else entirely. Some businesses aim to make as much profit as possible and some ‘social enterprises’ are designed to break even and do some good for society at the same time. I wonder which children will choose?

The best ideas will think about how much things cost to produce and how much they can be sold for.

Children should produce a drawing or model to help people understand the business idea. Notes, labels and descriptions will make viewers see the business potential even more!

If children get really into their business idea, they could even produce a full business plan, complete with prototype, target market (who it’s aimed at), advertising ideas, costs, prices and sales predictions.

Each class will vote for one homework to represent their class in a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style assembly in front of the whole school. These finalists must present their business ideas in front of an audience!

This week’s homework is creative. It’s due in on Wednesday 23 May 2012.

I know about labels and captions.

Your child has been comparing fiction and non-fiction books this week.  Labels and captions can usually be found in non-fiction books, close to photographs and diagrams.

By the way, it’s useful to encourage your child to read a wide range of books, both stories and factual.

This week’s homework is Practice Makes Perfect.

You’ll find a phonics and reading activity in your child’s book.

The activity requires your child to fill in the missing words in the box. We suggest that your child reads the words in the box first and then finds the sentence that they belong to. If your child struggles to read the sentence because of unknown words in it, get your child to sound the words out. They can do this by using their phonic knowledge.

This homework is due on Wednesday 16 May.

The homework this week is creative and is due in on Wednesday 25 April 2012.

I know about push and pull forces.

We’ve started a new mini-topic for science; we thought it would be good to see what children know about forces.

Children should show creatively something they know about the topic. Some ideas:

  • a poem
  • a poster
  • some facts
  • an observational drawing
  • research using ICT
  • own idea

It’s the Easter holidays and, in line with our Homework Policy, teachers do not set spellings or homework tasks. Instead, enjoy the sunny weather by getting active: a trip to the park, a game of football, a cycle ride or a long walk!

During the holidays, two of our teachers will visit Italy, one will be in Russia and one will be in…Barry Island!
