Many apologies for not keeping up to date with marking homework recently.  I will get on top of it as soon as I can.  Following a suggestion from a parent, we are going follow up homework with an activity in class.

Friday 15th June 2007 

Classroom of the future – make a model or do a design of the way that you would like your new classroom to look.  Think carefully about different zones of learning or different ways that you learn best.

 Friday 8th June 2007 

English – Please continue to read your school books (and others) as much as you can.


Art – Have a look at some natural objects (leaves, snails, bark, twigs, stones etc) and make a sculpture inspired by what you see.

Friday 25th May

No homework for half term.

Friday 18th May 2007 

We have finished our reading comprehension homework for this year.  It is really important to continue asking children questions about the books they are reading to check that they have understood what they have read.


As part of our project on Keeping Healthy, make a healthy meal.  You can write the recipe, photograph it, draw it, make a model of it or write about it.  I hope you enjoy eating it!


Keep practising a times tables that you do not know.  I will do a ‘speed check’ on your child’s chosen table next week

Friday 20th April 2007

Please look inside your blue homework book. There are two reading comprehensions to do for Monday.

Friday 30th March 2007

No homework for the Easter holidays… if you want to do something, practice your tables, read A LOT, and have fun!

Friday 24th March 2007

Reading comprehension (stuck in homework book).

Maths – This week we have been learning about symmetry. Draw all of the polygons you learnt a few weeks ago and draw their lines of symmetry. I will do the first one for you…


Friday 16th March 2007

English – Reading comprehension (stuck in homework book).

Maths – Make a pictogram of something you want to research e.g. your family’s favourite food, the weather over the weekend (below is a pictogram of the weather in March 2002), your family’s favourite colour etc.


Friday 9th March 2007

English – Reading comprehension (stuck in homework book).

Maths – Using a watch or clock, set different times and ask an adult to ask you questions about the time. For example; what time will it be in half an hour? What time was it quarter of an hour ago? If we catch a train at five o’clock and it is half past two now, how long have we got to wait? What time is it when it is 18:00?
It might be helpful to draw out a clock face to make sure your child knows how to read the time to at least ‘o’clock’ and ‘half past’ moving on to ‘quarter to’ and ‘quarter past’ and beyond. Your child also needs to know how to tell the time on a digital clock.

Friday 2nd March 2007

For homework for the next few weeks, I will be giving a reading comprehension and a piece of maths to work on. For the reading comprehension, your child must read the text and answer the questions (this is in their blue homework book). They may need help to find the answers to the questions in the text. Maths this week will be to learn the name of 2D polygons;

3 sided polygon = triangle

4 sided polygon = quadrilateral (square, rectangle, rhombus)

5 sided polygon = pentagon

6 sided polygon = hexagon

7 sided polygon = heptagon

8 sided polygon = octagon

9 sided polygon = nonagon

10 sided polygon = decagon

To help you remember these shapes, draw them and label them, test yourself everyday ready for a class test on Wednesday.

Friday 9th February 2007

This week in maths we have been learning about 2D and 3D shapes and angles. Find some 90° angles in your house and draw them in your book. For example a table has a 90° corner on it.

The following angles are both right angles;

    My last homework: My happiest memory in Green Class.

    It was a cold, snowy winter’s day, and just before it was Morning play, Martha said Green Class were going to have a snowman contest against the other classes. Most of our class joined our group to help build a snowman. Martha helped too. We first collected clumps of snow to make his body. When I accidentally dropped my scarf, Kat put it around the snowman’s neck! We used a carrot for it’s nose, and stones for it’s mouth and eyes.It was very very very fun! Peter was the judge, and at assembly he told the school that our group had won the contest . I was very pleased about that! I also enjoyed book week, painting nature in art and making a broad bean diary.
    Green Class has been fantastic with Martha and Carley!!

    I really enjoyed the juggling we did and the dance lessons and playing football in the playground. And I am happy that I have learned to read and write.

    I’m glad you have such happy memories Joshua.

    Luke you were great at juggling – keep practicing. The transformation in your reading and writing is amazing, you should be very, very proud.
