This half term the children have been provided with personal accounts for our new Times Tables scheme. Work will be set by teachers weekly for children to practice at home and in school.


Topic Homework

This half term our project will focus around 'The Rainforest'. Children are required to bring in a piece of homework of their choice, that focuses on our class topic. Homework for this can be brought in any time before the end of term. 

Topic homework can be art based, written pieces, presentations, performances, food etc. Here are a few possible craft ideas to get you started...


  • Gather stones and paint rainforest animal patterns on them.
  • Search for leaves and identify them.
  • Take pictures or draw the life cycle of a plant.
  • Create animal tracks by drawing, printing or making imprints in mud.
  • Whilst outside, close your eyes and imagine that you are standing in the middle of a rainforest. Write or draw to show what you imagine that you would hear, see, smell, taste or feel.
  • Visit a local park and create some bark-rubbing art.
  • Create a rainforest themed top-trumps game or word search.
  • Design or create a new rainforest animal.
  • Gather and paint leaves to create some leaf-printing pictures.
  • Rainforest poster/ information sheet / leaflet
