This week’s homework is creative.
I can show what I want to know about theme parks.
In class, children have discussed how they could present this homework, but the main thing is to get loads of questions and / or ideas down. This will mean that we can base lots of our Theme Park Big Topic lessons on children’s interests.

Your homework this week is creative and is due in on Wednesday 16 January.
I can express my opinion about the book The Switch.
We’ve just finished our class novel, The Switch. Homework is to produce a piece of work that tells me your opinion of the book. The homework also has to relate to our learning about different text types so the children need to produce a piece of written work about The Switch.
This piece of work could be:
- An advert persuading people to buy the book and promoting the book
- A script of one of the most exciting parts of the story
- A narrative continuing the story
- An explanation showing what the book is about
- A discussion praising the book
- A debate or balanced argument showing two points of view about the book or a character, or…
- Your own idea choosing a different text type.
…so enjoy the break.
We don’t give homework or spellings and tables to learn during holidays. Instead, we hope you all enjoy the break and spend some fabulously festive family time, whether it’s playing board games, enjoying a book or two or simply relaxing in front of the telly for a treat.

This week’s homework is creative.
I can show what I know about electricity.
Children have learnt about electric circuits this week, including circuit symbols, how to make bulbs brighter or dimmer and also about conductors and insulators. They should have plenty of knowledge that they can communicate in their homework.
So that we can display their work, we’re asking that children do this on an A4 sheet of paper instead of in their books.
