Homework Activities Summer Term 2 2017

Written Home Learning – Every Two Weeks

 

Below is an outline of the fortnightly written activities we would like your child to complete at home over the course of this half term. The idea is that you spend roughly 2.5 hours over a two week period on the activities. The written pieces are intended to be part of a mini-project linked to our topic of Countries of the World. Approximately 1 ½ -2 sides of A4 should be a reasonable amount of work (additional photos and images may be attached to the writing). Please send each project page into school by the appropriate date, stuck into your child’s homework book (where applicable).

 

Date to hand in

Task

Thursday 22nd  June

We focused on The Enormous Crocodile last half term which you all loved but were not happy with the Crocodile! I would like you to write about these animals and see if they were portrayed correctly. This means I need you to research as much as you can about crocodiles! I would like you to create a fact file about them; what they eat, where they live, how long for, do they live alone or in groups? Present your fact file using titles, subheadings and write in the 3rd person as this is an information text.

Thursday 6th July

We are fast approaching the end of Year 3! L What has stood out over your year in Year 3? Reflect on the last year we have had together, what have been your favourite times? What advice could you give to the children in Year 2? Lastly, what are you looking forward to next year? Is there anything you are nervous about? Write your reflection down in your book. It would be great to share our memories and support each other as we look ahead to next year J
