This week’s homework is creative and is due in on Thursday 23 March.

To design a quiz to show what I’ve learnt about our topic.

To celebrate bringing our current topic to an end, I have asked the children to design a quiz. They will need to think about a period of time throughout history and create questions about it. It is important that some of these questions are transport related as this has been our focus throughout.  We discussed in class how to present a quiz and how to vary the answers. For example, multiple choice, use pictures, lift the flap and so on.

During our homework review session, the children will be able to try out their quizzes on their friends.

This week, our homework is Practice Makes Perfect.

I can remember what I’ve learnt about arithmetic.

We’d like children to revise what they’ve learnt in arithmetic lessons and have been given 15 questions to do on a sheet, all using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, sometimes of fractions. We have answered questions like these in class.

As always, children should ask for help if they need help.

For all children in Year 1 – Year 6, the homework this week is talk time and is due in on Wednesday 08 February. There are two options:

  • I can prepare a speech (School Council elections).
  • I know the importance of voting.

It’s time for children to consider if they would like to stand for election for our new School Council.  With two representatives from each class, chosen democratically by their peers, all children at Moortown Primary are encouraged to take an active part in pupil voice.

Elections for our new school council will take place on Thursday 09 February with our polling station and ballot boxes at the ready.  Candidates will have the opportunity to give their election speech to their class on Wednesday 08 February.

What makes a good school councillor has been considered by our current school council.

‘Communicating with others – pupils and adults.’
‘Having good listening skills to know what to contribute in meetings.’
‘Thinking of realistic ideas to suggest in meetings.’
‘Considering other people’s views even if you don’t agree with them.’

Hints for your speech include:

  • What skills and abilities would a good school councillor have?
  • What are you particularly good at that would help you to be a great school councillor?
  • What do you think would make the school better?
  • What could you do that people would really like?
  • Think of things that are realistic, maybe that you could do yourself, rather than having to ask other people to do

Thank you to our current school councillors for all their ideas and contributions over the last year.  We hope you have enjoyed this role and responsibility.  You’re welcome to stand again for election.

Good luck to all children who decide to stand in the elections.

If you choose not to stand in the election then you should consider the importance of voting.

This week’s homework is Creative.

I can show what I know about solids, liquids and gasses.

In our ‘What’s the matter?’ topic, children have learnt about solids, liquids and gasses and we’d now like them to demonstrate what they’ve learnt.

Here are some ideas:

  • a poem
  • a rap
  • a detail explanation of how solids, liquids and gasses are formed, with diagrams
  • ten amazing facts about solids, liquids and gasses that no-one in our class will know
