Homework for December 1 – 5

girlonfloorhomeworkJust a few weeks left before the Christmas holiday! Now’s the time to work hard and finish the term strongly to make sure that you get great reports (and Santa treats you right)!


The Reception homework this week is about Christmas presents. The children need to join the dots to find the “hidden” presents and say the names of the toys in English, then practise talking about what they would like Santa to bring for them in English.

Year 1

Dear Parents,
For homework this week I would like the children to complete the following tasks:

Numeracy: Flower Sums. Make up sums on each petal to add up to the numbers in the centre of the flower and then make up your own snail sums.

Literacy: Teddy’s Bedtime. The children must look at the pictures, number them in the correct order and then tell the story. They can cut out and then stick them on a separate sheet of paper and write some key words connected to the story around the picture.

Topic: Birds. Next week in class we will be looking at birds!  I would like to make bird feeders with the children so could everyone please bring in the following recycled items:

  • Yoghurt Pot
  • Empty water/Soft drink bottle

Thank you to those of you who have filled out the Excursion Permission form and brought it back to school.  Please could those who are yet to complete it bring it back as soon as possible so we can begin our nature walks!

Kind regards,
Miss Maddison

Year 2

Literacy and Science: In Literacy we have The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson to stimulate ideas about light and dark. This week the children will need to use a torch and using sticks, straws, or cardboard shapes create a shadow puppet. The children then need to explore what happens when they change the angle of the torch and talk about the shadows they make. There is also a phonic sheet to complete.

Numeracy: In Numeracy we have been assessing what we have learnt over the past term. The children need to complete each shape so they add up to 10.

As usual there are spellings in their books to learn for Thursday. Also please try to take 10 minutes to read with your child each day. Thanks!

Year 3

Literacy: This week we have looked at reading and writing poetry.  The children have been thinking about using nouns and adjectives to create new lines for a poem.  For they homework they need to choose a character and write ten things they might find in their pockets.

Don’t forget the spellings and keep reading every day!
Numeracy: The children are working really hard in numeracy over the last few weeks!  I have given them a mental maths sheet to complete that has lots of different problems to solve using what they have learned in class this term.
Topic: Christmas is coming!  We are going to be looking at different Christmas customs from around the world.  We are going to start by looking at how Christmas is celebrated in Belgium.  The children need to find out as much as possible and write notes or draw pictures.
I have also asked the children to bring an old T-shirt or art overall as we are going to be doing some messy art work and I don’t want them to spoil their lovely uniforms!
Year 4

English: Spelling: Learn spelling words on p.28 and do exercises p.26, 27 and 29 on the provided paper. Test on Wednesday.
Punctuation: Do the exercises on question marks and exclamation marks on p. 22.

Maths: Complete Maths on Divisions.

 Year 5
Literacy: In Literacy we have been analysing poems. We have been looking at the different language styles used to create impact and effect in a poem. In particular similes, metaphors and alliteration. With this in mind for homework the children have a poem about a Dragon to analyse and answer questions about.

 The children also have their spelling lists and reading books.

 Numeracy: With an emphasis on thinking and problem solving skills firstly this week the children have some worded problems which use the four operations of numbers to solve. They are all based on the theme of chocolate! The second task is a problem solving activity called ‘Rock talk’ here they need to match the members of a rock group to their names and instruments.
