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 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.

This week’s homework is Talk Time and will be discussed in class on Thursday 16 May.

If you were given the opportunity to go to space, where would you go, what would you do and who would you take?

In Year 5, we’ve been learning all about space. Which planet do you have your eye on or are stars more your thing? Would you go in the name of science or a relaxing holiday? Would you even be brave enough to go at all? Have a chat with the people at home and find out their answers, too!

This week’s homework is Practice Makes Perfect and is due in on Friday 10 May.

I can find fractions of amounts.

This is a recap of some maths learning we’ve done recently. For example:

“What is 2/3 of 12?

I know 1/3 of 12 is 4 so 2/3 must be 8.”

Children must read the real life situation and work out the answer. If you need any help, as always, come in and see me before the due date.

This week, the whole school has the same Creative homework: I can illustrate different emotions.

This homework, which links to our living and learning statement, is an opportunity for children to show that they can recognise, and show, different emotions. As humans, we display a huge-range of emotions. Sometimes, it’s obvious how we’re feeling. Sometimes, it’s trickier for us to show, or recognise, an emotion. This statement allows us to spend time thinking about the different emotions we experience and how we can recognise these accurately in ourselves and others.

Children could respond creatively to this in a range of ways:

  • create a piece of art that shows a range of emotions
  • take pictures of themselves (or others) displaying different emotions
  • write a short-story in which a character shows lots of emotions
  • Devise a poem, song or rap about emotions
  • Create a comic strip to illustrate different emotions

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 03 May 2019.

The homework this week is talk time. 

I can recognise positive and negative emotions in myself and others and I can respond appropriately.

This homework links with our Living and Learning statement for next week. Please talk with your child about the statement, recognising their strengths and areas to develop. You could also discuss strategies they could use to help them deal with emotions they or others are experiencing.
