Homework will be given out on Friday to be returned by Tuesday please. Each week the children will have homework on MyMaths. 

13.9.18 - Find out as much as you can about the Solar System - you can present this however you want. Remember ... it is in your Science book so needs to be as good as if it were happening in school!

20.9.18 - Can you fill in the learning jigsaw about the Solar System. This will be where you get the information from for your Non-Chronological Reports in Literacy. Therefore, the better your homework, the easier your Literacy. It will be completed in your Literacy book.

28.9.18 - Can you bring your favourite map into class? This can be a map of anywhere. We are going to use them on Wednesday afternoon.

5.10.18 - I would like you to create your own timeline including signficant events - e.g. born, first day at school, loosing first tooth, visiting the library for the first time, riding a bike without stabilisers. You can accompany the statements with photographs. Please present it neatly over a 'double-page' spread of your topic book. We will use it on Tuesday afternoon.

15.10.18 - For the 17.10.19 - Can you bring in some shoe boxes for our Science experiment?

18.10.18 - Over the next 2 weeks (During half term), can you create a British History Timeline so we can compare it to the Islamic Timeline. This needs to be presented in your Topic Book. You can use pictures, drawings, photographs or simply words. It can be as big or as small as you want.

15.11.18 - Please add information to your individual who was 'Called to Speak'. It will really help you to write the Biography next week.
