Homework Summer 1


February ’22

As part of our India topic, we have been thinking about how where you are born affects your life chances.

We looked at this world map of light, which generated a range of questions. We chose “Should rich countries have to share their wealth?”

November ’21

For Remembrance Day, we discussed conscription and conscientious objectors. We chose this question to discuss: Is it your responsibility to protect your family with your life?


In honour of fireworks night, we talked about Guy Fawkes and whether it is ever right to kill someone who has committed a crime.

This the P4C question we developed…


We are currently enjoying reading James and the Giant Peach!


Useful Information & Links

There are two things we ask the children to do at home each day. Children benefit hugely from practising their times tables and reading with an adult for at least fifteen minutes. Each Friday, we do a ‘rocket’ test, on the times table you child have been practising that week. Also on Fridays, I check the children’s yellow reading records. If they have read 4 times or more that week, and bring in their reading record, they get a raffle ticket for a weekly prize draw!

P.E day is Wednesday. Please send your child into school wearing their P.E kit.

Homework is set over Google Classroom. Please contact Miss Dunkley if you cannot find your child’s Google Classroom login or have any questions. There is a grid of homework challenges for your child to choose from. It is due on Wednesday of each week through Google Classroom.
