Homework

Miss Clare's Maths group- please see your fraction homework in your homework book- if you find it tricky make sure you pop and see me.

Class homework

This week we visited Beth Shalom Holocaust Centre.

It was an eye-opening experience which we can all take a lot from.

As we walked around the different stages and rooms of Leo’s life, we saw how Leo’s life started to change.

Because Leo was Jewish, this is how he was treated during the late 1930’s and the start of the war:

  • Mrs Hindenberg told Fritz not to play with Leo because he was Jewish.

  • Leo was forced to sit at the back of the class on his own and the teacher humiliated him in front of his class.

  • Leo’s family shop was destroyed during the Kristallnacht; they were forced to go into hiding.

  • Leo was sent to England on the Kindertransport where he would be safe. He had to leave his family.

In your own words, we would like you write a reflection about what you have learnt from Leo’s experience. What can we take from Leo’s experience? How should we treat others? What would you do today if somebody was being unkind to you or somebody you know just because of your religion?

Year 6 Homework due in 12.10.18

Team,

Over the term, we have been developing our understanding of the character curriculum and we thought it would be great to tie this in with ‘Black History Month’. Your homework this week is linked to these areas.

We want you to think about the character curriculum traits and how a famous person from black history demonstrated one of them.

Task:

Research and design a very small fact file about a famous person from black history (think about any of the people in the assemblies this week).

Write a small paragraph that shows how they demonstrated one of the character curriculum traits (courage, respect, teamwork, inclusion, resilience, motivation, tolerance, empathy or altruism).

Ensure it is in your homework book.

Your famous person from black history can be from the modern day or in the past, so be as selective as you want. You have 1 week to complete this homework, in your homework book.

Get inspired and we look forward to seeing your completed work.

A reminder about the homework due in next Thursday (4.10.18)

Make sure you have spent at least an hour on it (you have had two weeks)

See details below.

Year 6 Homework due in 04.10.18

Team,

Over the last week, we have been studying narratives (a fancy word for stories) in literacy. Your homework this week is linked to this topic.

It has been decided that for the year group homework, it would be great to get creative and design your very own scene from World War 2. We’ve also seen how great your narratives have been so we want you to write a narrative to go with it.

Task:

Sketch, make or paint a scene from World War 2 (think about all we have studied so far.)

Write a small narrative to go with it including some of the amazing language features we have been working on in school.

Ensure you put your name on it; we may put some on display.

Your scene can be based on anything to do with World War 2, so be as creative as you want. You have 2 weeks to complete this. We suggest you do your scene one week and the writing the next. It doesn’t have to be in your homework booklet, teachers can sign your booklet to say we have seen it.

Get creative and we look forward to seeing your completed work.

Week two class homework - Week beginning 10th September 2018.

 

Team,

 

Over the last two weeks we have been studying poetry in literacy. Your homework for this week is linked to this topic.

 

Youngwriters (an online writing forum) have announced that they are running a poetry competition this year and we would love for lots of you to enter. We’ve seen how talented your poetry skills are so we believe we have a good chance of some of you winning prizes for both yourself and the school!

Take a look at the rules for the competition:

Rules

  • Only one entry per pupil, there is no limit to the number of entries per school
  • Poems can be on the entry form or A4 sheet of paper
  • Poems must be your pupils' own work
  • Ensure that all pupils include their name, school and age on their entries

Closing Date: Friday 19th of October 2018

 

Your poem can be based on any theme of your choice so be creative. Write your poem on an A4 sheet of paper, and remember to include your name, school and age. We will send them off next Friday. Feel free to decorate your poem, although this is not an expectation.

 

Happy writing!!

Team 6 J

 

It is due in next Thursday (20th September).

 

A little bit of advice from team 6: you should spend approximately 30-40 minutes on your weekly homework task, no more. With maths homework, spellings and daily reading, you need to ensure you manage your time efficiently and continue to enjoy all the other wonderful things you do at home with your family and friends – it’s all about balance.

Please shout up if you ever need any clarity regarding homework set.

Happy decorating!

Team 6 J
