Homework Grids Autumn Term 2018

FSU Autumn Term 

Homework grid T2 2018

This term our topic is Celebrations

With Fireworks, Diwali and Christmas all happening, Celebrations seemed like an obvious topic for this term!

Please support your child in choosing and completing an average of one activity a week in their homework books.

Mrs Wells will take in and look through homework books on a Thursday.

 


  1. Play a board game with your family that includes a dice.

 Parents- if you don’t have a suitable board game, please ask a member of staff- we have plenty you can borrow!

4. Write a list of words to describe fireworks.
7. Choose your favourite book from home to bring in to school so we can discuss your favourite character and read it to your friends.

 

Parents- if you are able to leave the book in school, this would be great! We will read it as soon as we get a moment.


2. Make your own fireworks picture.

Parents- Children are welcome to choose what they use for their picture- chalks, colouring pens, stickers or any other crafty bits. We look forward to seeing their ideas!



5. Practise counting backwards from 10-0.

Extension- count backwards from 20-0.

Parents- check your child can do this with a number line, pointing to the correct number as they count backwards.

8. Make some biscuits.

We love seeing the photo evidence of the children’s cooking and would love to try any that are made too.

 

Parents- talk to your child about how the mixture changes once the ingredients are cooked.

3. Get dressed for school all by yourself (including turning clothes the right way round!)


6. Go on a shape hunt around the house. Can you find a triangle, circle, square and rectangle shape anywhere?

Extension- find a pentagon, hexagon or octagon.

9. Tell someone something that you are really good at (at school or at home).

 

 Please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of staff if you would like clarification of any of the tasks. Enjoy!
