Homework challenges

 

Literacy

Write a story about an Anglo Saxon king. 

Think about what the problem is within the story and how the problem is solved. Think carefully about the vocabulary that you choice and make sure that you use lots of different sentence openers. Your story can be handwritten or typed. It can be created on one piece of paper, a storyboard or a booklet.   

 

Numeracy

Create your own analogue clock. 

It does not have to be made from paper and pencils. Be creative! You can use any materials that you like!

 

 

Science

Create a leaflet or poster to explain how we can help look after the environment. 

Make sure your work is presented neatly and clearly for others to read and understand. 

 

RE

The Christmas Story. How can you share the Christmas Story in a creative way? Can you make something, can you create a poem or a song, can you bake something, can you use the computer to complete this work? Be as creative as you can and have fun!

 

Passport to the World

What facts can you find out about 'Ireland'? Think bout how to present your work in a creative and exciting way. Miss Burrows is looking for some 3D work this half term!

 

 RE 

'The Bible'

 

                            

We have shared what we know about the Bible and lots of children already know many Bible stories and could explain some of their meanings. 

We learnt about Abraham and Sarah and how they showed faith in God. We know that God kept his promise to Abraham. We have learnt that Joseph was also chosen by God. We thought about the good and bad things that happened in Joseph's life. 

Last week, we discovered the story of Moses and how he saved the Israelites.
