Homework for December 9-12

homework pencilWe’re coming into the home stretch for homework before the holidays, so keep at!


The objective of this week’s Reception homework is for the children to practise using scissors and to reinforce new vocabulary linked to Christmas.

They need to cut out and colour the Christmas tree and then colour, cut out, then glue their choice of decorations onto their tree. As they are decorating their tree the should talk about the names of the different decorations and count how many of each are on their tree.
Year 1 

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

Numeracy: Money Boxes. The children have to draw 1p coins in the money boxes and complete the sums.

Literacy: A Rainy Day. This week has been cold, wet and rainy!  I would like the children to complete the simple worksheet drawing circles around everything Kamal needs to keep himself dry. Then I would like the children to draw a picture of something they love to do when it is raining and then label the picture or write a simple sentence.

Topic: Snails. On Thursday after it stopped raining we went for a walk close to the school to see if we could find any slugs, snails or worms!  The children really enjoyed the walk and found lots of creepy crawlies. We collected them carefully and looked at them under a magnifying glass. Please can each child find out something interesting about slugs, snails or worms and come and tell the class next week!

Literacy: This week the children had the pleasure of attending the book fair. They were extremely well-behaved and had a lot of fun. This week I would like the children to use the sheet provided and have a look at the books they bought or at their favorite and draw one picture and one sentence from the beginning, middle, and end.

Numeracy: This week the children have been reviewing subtraction and addition with the aim of progressing to multiplication. Please complete the worksheets provided.

Year 3

Literacy: In literacy this week we have looked at shape poetry. The children have also been looking at different vocabulary to help them express their ideas and feelings. Homework this week is to create their own shape poem. I have given them an example but the children can choose any topic they like.

Numeracy: This week in numeracy we have been looking at subtraction and money. The children have been investigating different techniques and methods. The homework is to complete the subtraction worksheet they have been given.

Geography: The children have been attempting to create their own maps this week. We have looked at their immediate environment, which is school. For homework I would like the children to create maps of their homes using a key.

As usual there will be spellings in their spelling books to learn for next Friday. Also daily reading.

Year 5

Literacy: This week in Literacy we have continued our unit of work on Poetry. We looked in detail at the very descriptive poem ‘The Walrus and the Carpenter’ from the book ‘Alice through the Looking Glass’. With this in mind the children need to create their own descriptive poems based on a human emotion. Using the guide given they can write as many poems as they want.

The children also have their spelling lists and reading books.

Numeracy: As the temperature drops over this long week-end we see a real life example of where negative numbers might be used. This is also the theme of the homework this week. The children need to firstly sort out their finances with the bank and then find temperatures from around the world by solving some worded problems.

Year 6 

Year 6 have been given vocabulary books. When they have no other homework, they should be recording their own definitions of new words they encounter through their reading. They should then use the word in a sentence to show they understand it. The vocabulary books will be checked every Friday, with each student expected to learn a minimum of 10 new words a week.

Year 7
