Years 1 & 2 Termly Homework Tasks/Knowledge Organiser

Dear Parents

 

This term children have a selection of homework tasks to choose from.

 

Please help your child to do 6 tasks, at least 1 from each section, (about 1 every 2 weeks) in their homework book.

 

 

If the task is a practical one then please stick photos of their work in the book as well as bringing in the completed task.

 

 

Try to pick a variety of subject areas but tasks your child will be interested in and enjoy! If you are not sure how to get started please talk to your class teacher who will be able to give you some guidance.

 

The homework tasks are to be completed in your child’s own time and can be handed in throughout the term rather than on a specific day each week. This is a way of allowing you some flexibility during your weekends as we appreciate that some weekends are busier than others. Thank you and happy homework!
