Summer Half Term

Posted on Friday 27 May 2016 by Mrs Weekes

In line with our Homework Policy, there are no homework tasks or spellings to learn next week because it’s the Summer half-term holiday. Of course, there are plenty of ways to help your child continue learning: get reading, go places, talk lots!

Have a happy and healthy holiday.

I understand rights and responsibilities.

This half term, our SEAL theme has been Rights and Responsibilities.  We’ve been learning that if we have rights, we also have responsibilities. Children have been considering the following rights and responsibilities.

  • I have the right to learn and I have the responsibility for my own learning.
  • I have the right to play and I have the responsibility to play fairly.
  • I have the right to express an opinion and I have the responsibility to respect the opinions of others.
  • I have the right to be safe and I have the responsibility to make safe choices.
  • I have the right to be healthy and I have the responsibility to make healthy choices.

Your child is required to show their understanding of rights and responsibilities in a creative way. Ideas could include:

  • a story
  • a poem
  • a song
  • a poster
  • a letter
  • a comic strip

This week’s homework is creative and is due 18 May 2016.

I can research my favourite musician.

In English, we’ve been learning how to write biographies with a focus on musicians. In class, we have used Elvis Presley, Louis Armstrong and The Beatles as inspiration for our writing but next week we’ll choose our own musicians. To do this effectively, your child needs to research facts about their favourite musician (or group) and present them in a creative way. This could be a poster, a mind map, a quiz or a PowerPoint presentation.

Your child may include:

  • when their musician was born
  • where  their musician was born
  • where their musician grew up
  • how their musician got into music
  • what instruments their musician learnt as a child
  • how they became famous

This week’s homework is practice makes perfect and is due on 11 May.

I can practise using pronouns.

In English, we have been using pronouns in our book review writing. A pronoun is a word or phrase that can be used in the place of a noun. We use pronouns to avoid repetition in a paragraph. Your child has a series of activities to help them practise using pronouns.

This week’s spellings are all homophones. Homophones are two or more words that sound the same but are spelt differently and mean different things. For example: fair (a place with rides and games) and fare (the cost of public transport).

  • grown / groan
  • eight / ate
  • woman / women
  • heard / herd

Your child also needs to find their own pair (not pear!) of homophones which they will be tested on.

This week’s homework is practice makes perfect and is due on Wednesday 23 March.

I can tell the time.

Your child will have a series of time-based tasks to do that they need to finish in the booklet provided.

We’ve started telling time to the nearest minute in class and if your child needs some extra support to do this at home, I recommend the BBC Bitesize website.  I’ve also set some time tasks on Mathletics.
