Ahead of next week’s Living and Learning theme, this week’s homework is Talk Time and will be discussed in class on Thursday 19 September.

I know when to and when not to take risks and responsibility.

Have a chat at home about scenarios when you should take risks and responsibility but on the flip side, when shouldn’t you do either?

We’re going to have a debate in class, so be ready to contribute what was spoken about at home!

This week’s homework is Talk Time and is due in on Thursday 12 September.

I can talk about my goals for the year. 

Children have been asked to discuss their targets for the coming year. This could be something to improve in school or out of school and may relate to their handwriting, spelling, times tables or even joining in with sporting competitions. It might be best to talk about how to improve and not just what!

We will talk about their targets as a class and share our aspirations.

This week, and the final submission for Y5, the homework is Creative:

I can show my highlights of the year.

Children are invited to reflect on their ‘best bits’ of Year 5 and show them in a creative way. Some ideas for their favourite moment are:

  •  a song/poem/rap
  • a comic strip
  • a poster
  • a model
  •  awards for the class
  •  a video clip

It could be one event or a few that have stood out but, either way, we will celebrate our brilliant year (and the fact we get another one together) on Thursday 18 July.

This week, the whole school has the same Creative homework: I can illustrate happy and healthy choices.

This homework links to our weekly living and learning statement and is something we talk about a lot in our school. Can you encourage your child to make a new healthy choice every day this week? Or think about one new healthy change your child can make? Try to help them make sure the choice is a realistic, achievable one, such as avoiding being on an electronic device after a certain time to help sleep, or adding one extra daily portion of vegetables to their diet each day.

As this is a Creative homework, children could respond in a variety of ways:
• Create a blog, video blog or diary to show the changes we’ve made.
• Create a poster convincing others to make a happy and healthy change.
• Make a cartoon strip in which a character makes a happy and healthy change.
• Write a song, poem or rap that will encourage others to make changes.
• Reflect on change they’ve made and how it made them feel.
There are of course lots of other ways to respond, too.

Children should be ready share, and celebrate, their homework in their class by Thursday 11 July 2019.

This week’s homework is linked to the My Health My School survey the children will be completing soon.

They have a number of aspects of their daily routine to keep track of: having breakfast; snacks and drinks consumed; and exercise taken. The children are going to start their diaries on Saturday 22 June and finish them on Friday 28 June (so homework is not due in until Monday 01 July).

We’ve gone through how to complete the diary and children should ask if they’re not sure through the week.

This week’s homework is Talk Time and is due in on Thursday 20 June.

I can share my views about health.

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.  These views can help us to become happier and healthier.

Please support your child to complete the health questionnaire by discussing these issues and add your own comment at the end.

The completed questionnaire should be returned to your class teacher by Thursday 20 June.

This week, the whole school has the same Creative homework: I can illustrate a moral choice.  

A moral choice is committing to act for what you believe is right and good. As responsible citizens, we have a duty to ensure that we, and others, act on what we think is correct. This homework, which links to our on-going living and learning work, will help children to further understand this.

As this is a creative homework we look forward to receiving a range of responses. Children should think about something they feel passionate about and illustrate this however they see fit.

They could…

  • create a piece of art that shows the choice
  • write a news report about someone making a moral choice
  • find a key person from history and explain how, and why, they made a moral choice
  • create a short piece of drama to show the choice being made.

This homework should be completed by Thursday 13 June 2019.

This week, the whole school has the same Creative homework: I can show what I know about a particular job.  

This homework is in preparation for our themed week which is next week. Throughout the week, we’ll focus on money. One aspect of this is how money is earned. Obviously, our children are a little young to be earning money but it is really important that they have aspirations.

For their homework this week, children should decide on a job (maybe one they want to do or one that a family member has) and find out some useful information about the profession: what a ‘normal’ day looks like, how much you can earn, what qualifications/experience you need, etc.

Children could respond to this creative homework in a range of ways:

  • Create a poster
  • Make a ‘project board’
  • Re-create a ‘day in the life of…’ and document this in pictures
  • Make a presentation
  • Compare a few different jobs
  • Devise a short play to show their peers what the job involves
  • Research the salary and decide how they might spend their money
  • Write a job application

Of course, there are many other ways in which children could respond. Children should be ready to celebrate their learning as part of their homework review by Friday 24 May 2019.
