Year 6 Homework

20 May 2011

Posted on Thursday 19 May 2011 by Mrs Weekes

This week’s homework is “Creative Homework”.  To introduce next week’s themed week, we’d like the children to think about the community that they belong to.

I know what a community is.

This could be shown in many different ways:

  • a poster
  • photos
  • a mind map
  • children showing different communities they belong to
  • a map showing different communities

All the children in school are thinking about this so it will be a great opportunity to discuss it as a family.  We look forward to seeing you all next week for different activities, especially next Friday afternoon from 2pm when we will be celebrating our community at Moortown Primary.

Around the country, it’s Walk to School week next week.  To promote the event, there are two activities for chidren throughout school to have a go at…

First, all children should complete the creative homework, due in on Wednesday 18 May 2011: I can persuade someone to walk to school.  Children could create a poster, write a newspaper article, write a poem, or an even more creative idea of their own!

Second, as a bit of fun, there’s an extra homework activity – and this one comes with a prize!  Watch the walking to school video – it’s been on the site for a few months now, but have you spotted Wally?!

Children have taken home a map to mark where Wally is.  Younger children have been given a map which shows the route the stars of the video take as they walk to school.  To make it more of a challenge, older children have no route shown on their map!  Along the way, you can just about spot where Wally is, but look closely as he might be around more than once…

This should be returned by Friday 20 May.  Correct entries will be put into the hat with winners selected at random.  Good luck!

It’s half term…

Posted on Thursday 17 February 2011 by Mr Roundtree

It’s half-term holidays next week, so there are no homework tasks or spellings next week.

Of course, regular practice and learning can still happen: reading each day, swimming, tables practice, trips to the library, walks around Roundhay Park… All will help your child have a happy and healthy holiday!
