   Easter Holiday Creative Homework    Our theme for next term is Plant Power.

Take a look at the ideas below and choose one or more to complete:

  • Compose words for a song about plants/ flowers / trees. Words can be set to a familiar tune or you could compose a tune of your own. Can you perform your song and record? Produce a song sheet with the words of your song. Bring into school or email to the school office marked ‘homework class 1’. You could add actions/ dance moves to your song too.
  • Create your own box/container garden.

e.g.   

  • Make 3D models of flowers/trees.
  • Create a poster with pictures and descriptions of the different plants that you have found in your garden or local park/wood. (Maybe it could be a lift the flap designed poster where your picture is on the flap and when you open the flap there is the name of the plant and a description of it underneath).
  • Pressed flowers with the name and details of the plant that the flower has come from.
  • Can you invent a board game based around our theme. e.g. playing pieces/ cards could be plant pots/flowers/trees. Maybe you could collect different parts of a flower during the game and the winner is the first person to collect a complete flower or Plant Bingo!

This homework is due back to school on  Tuesday 23rd April.

I hope you have fun with this creative homework and that you have an enjoyable holiday.

    Handwriting Homework    

 

Please could the children write about their favourite animal.

This is a handwriting task so the children will be expected to write using the cursive style. The picture shows  how to form each letter of the alphabet and hold the pencil correctly. The children have some lined paper.

Please help your child to write slowly and carefully to ensure each letter is correctly formed, there are finger spaces between the words and the writing sits on the line.

The children can copy sentences about their favourite animal or make up their own.

They could even carry out some research to find some facts they did not know.
