This week’s whole school homework involves completing the pupil health questionnaire sent home with your child/children.

 I can share my views about health.

Pupil voice is an important part of our school and this annual questionnaire provides pupil views on some of our key health issues.

Please support your child to complete the health questionnaire by discussing these issues.

The questionnaire should be returned to your class teacher by Thursday 13 July.

This week’s homework is practice makes perfect: I can write a pirate poem.

We’ve been reading some pirate poems this week in English lessons. For this homework, I’d like children to create their own rhyming pirate poems.

Feel free to use existing poems as your inspiration and adapt the verses as you like.

As we end our mini topic on food, our homework this week is creative and is due in on Thursday 29 June.

I know the importance of eating the right amount of different types of food.

The Eat Well Guide (below) shows how much of what you eat overall should come from each food group to achieve a balanced diet. Copies were recently sent home and children should use this to support them with this homework.

Children might choose to do one of the following creative ideas:

  • A story
  • A poem
  • Instructions
  • A comic strip
  • An advert
  • An interview
  • A game
  • Scenarios

…or any other creative ideas!

The homework this week is talk time and is due in on Thursday 22 June.

I can change my learning for the better. 

It’s that time of the year where children will be starting to think about their next class and teacher. Therefore, it’s a good time to consider how you could improve your learning. This could be by taking more risks in class, by reading more often at home, by listening more carefully during lessons.

We can all do better something better!

This week the children have a moral talk time homework:

Should all of the fresh food we buy be produced/grown in this country? 

This week, we looked at a variety of fruit and vegetables and saw that a lot of them came from countries across the world. Talk about the reasons for and against buying fresh food grown in different countries.

For all children in Year 1 – Year 6, the homework this week is creative and is due in on Thursday 25 May. In preparation for our whole school themed week next week, Staying Safe, children should consider the following question by showing what they already know.

How can I keep safe?

Children should think about the situations where they need to keep safe and who might help them to stay safe. This could be done in any creative way.

  • A story
  • A poem
  • Instructions
  • A comic strip
  • An advert
  • An interview
  • A game
  • Scenarios

…or any other creative ideas!

The homework will be reviewed as part of the themed week learning.

The homework this week is to plant and look after a tomato seed. You have all the things you need except the soil.
Make sure that you talk to your child about giving the plant all the things it needs to survive.

Observe carefully how the plant grows. You could take photos, sketches or write a short diary entry to record changes in the plant.

The homework this week is creative and is due in on Thursday 11 May.

I can identify the different types of trees around me. 

In this homework you have to become a tree detective. Use the ‘leaf key’ provided and other resources to find the names of the trees that are in your garden and local area. It would be great if you can bring in a leaf from each tree you identify. You could sketch or take photos of the different leaves or trees.

The children have a poem and some comprehension questions about the poem in their book. They should read the poem out loud to an adult and then answer the questions, using the poem to help them find the relevant information.

The homework this week is practice makes homework.

I can solve fractions problems. 

There’s a worksheet in the homework book for children to complete. They are asked to solve a problem and then explain their reasoning using pictures and a sentence. The first question has been done for them so they can see what they are expected to do.

Please ask if you have any questions.
