I can talk about a time when I have felt proud of someone.
In keeping with our SEAL theme this week, the homework is to discuss a time when they have felt proud of someone else. This could be a friend or relative.

The homework this week is talk time and should be completed by Wednesday 16 April:
Is it possible to be a good pirate?
There has been a lot of discussion this week about how people from the past are viewed in different ways. The same person can be seen as a hero or a villain. With this in mind, explore whether you think there is such a thing as a good pirate.
We will be having a discussion in class next week about whether it is possible to be a good pirate – so make sure you’ve got some points ready.

I can find five interesting facts about pirates.
This is a good opportunity to do some research on the internet and/or take a trip to the local library and hunt down some books on pirates!

This week’s homework is creative and is due in on Wednesday 02 May.
I can show what I know about pirates. Arrrgh!
Our new Pirates topic starts next week! Children should choose a creative way to show what they know about pirates. This week we break the normal creative homework rule of keeping our creativity confined to an A4 page: the best homeworks will be displayed on the wall so…
- make them as colourful and interesting as possible
- they could be on larger paper, or even on something 3D
Now, stop acting like a landlubber and get yer pirate thinking cap on!

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!

The homework this week is talk time and also a little bit creative and should be completed by Wednesday 14 March:
I can prepare a one minute presentation on an animal.
This week, we were visited by some very special animals, some that we may never touch or see again. They included a slithery corn snake, the adorable sugar glider (which we saw eat some live bait!) and also a tarantula (sedated thankfully). These were fascinating creatures and we learnt a little bit about each of them. Your objective is to find out as much as you can about these creatures and prepare a one minute oral (that means speaking) presentation on your chosen animal.
There need be nothing in your homework book. All that is required is that you are able to speak for a minute on your chosen animal. Please come and speak to me if you have any questions. Good luck!
