Welcome back after the Christmas holidays.
January- Our Wonderful World!
Our first homework of the year is linked to our geography lessons when for the next few weeks we are learning about the seven continents and five oceans. It would be fantastic if you could bring in an object, a photograph or a picture of something from one of the seven continents; Asia, North America, South America, Europe, Antarctica and Australia. For example a shell from a local beach (Europe) or if any of you have travelled further afield a souvenir such as an African fridge magnet! Or draw a picture of a landmark from a different continent. I'll look forward to sharing with the class what we bring in.
Over the last two weeks we have been learning about Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot. As a part of that we have been thinking about what makes an effective protest (rather than trying to blow up the Houses of Parliament!). In our lesson we looked at different ways of protesting peacefully and read the latest Rocket book Speak Up! (our curious character) who saves her local library from closure. For a homework project I would like you to create a protest poster or write a protest letter about something that is important to you and your family. For example this might be to remind people to pick up litter or dog muck or to walk to school instead of driving there.,
If you could bring your work into school by Friday 1 December and I would love to put it up on display.
Our history topic this half term is focusing on how travel and transport has changed from the past to the present and into the future.
For your homework project I would like you to talk to your parents, grandparents and other older relatives about how they used to travel (and where) for holidays and days out when they were your age. I would like you to bring into school or email a piece of work which could be writing or drawings about what you have found out and/or some old photographs. If you could bring your project in by Friday October 14th we will share our findings in class the following week.
Thankyou for all of your fantastic work and old photographs which we have all enjoyed sharing in class and we will put these on display.
