HOMEWORK TASK  - Due 22nd January

 

For your first homework task of the year I think it would be nice to make use of any colours our paints that Father Christmas might have brought you.

As our new topic is 'Victorian Times' I would like you to draw or paint a picture of a scene from the Victorian times e.g. Queen Victoria on the throne, a matchbox girl out on the street, a poor family eating dinner a Orphan child on the street. Remember this is a two week project so perhaps you could create a couple of draft sketches before creating your final finished piece. 

I hope that your research will help you learn a few facts to kick start our Victorians topic. 

If you have any questions or need any resources please do come and see me.

 

 

 

Other Online Maths Games

 

SumDog - This is a great online maths game that all of the pupils have their own login for. It not only encourages them to become better and mental maths, but also I can track their progress. It will only work on Google Chrome, however there are two apps available on I-Pads and Android. 

 

This is an interactive game we use in class to support the children's learning of times tables, but it also has games centered around doubles, halves and number bonds! It is compatible with the I-pads too! just click the link below...

Hit The Button 

Here is another great website, just click on your year group and the current maths topic of number and place value to see all of your targets and some great interactive games. I've shown the children this so they should know what they are looking for.
