This week’s homework is creative. It is due in on Wednesday 01 December 2010.
‘I can find openings in stories.’
This links to our story-writing unit in literacy. The children need to find different opening lines (the first line) in stories and make a note of them. They could even sort them into dialogue (speech), action or description (think of ‘DAD‘. As it is a creative homework they may present their homework how they wish.

The homework this week is creative and is due in on Wednesday 10 November.
I can measure length to the nearest cm.
Rememeber, when the mm end in 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 we round up to the nearest cm. When the mm end in 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 we round down to the nearest cm.
Our policy is not to give homework in the holidays. However, if you’d like to support your child’s learning at home, have a look at the Homework Tips for Parents (which has ideas for extra practice) and the National Expectations section (which should give you some ideas about what to learn more about).
Don’t forget: all children should be reading on a daily basis: comics, books, websites. Why not make a trip to the library this holiday?
Older children should also practise times tables (why not re-cap all the tables you’ve practised so far this year?).
