Year 3 


Well done Year 3! You have worked very hard during your first half term at the Junior School and we are proud of you!

We have not set any formal homework for you to complete this week, but would like you to work on the following tasks:


Remembrance Week

As part of our whole school display, we would really like you to have a go at creating a short verse or poem entitled ‘Remembrance. Your writing might be about poppies or those that fought in WW1 or WW2. This is optional, but it would be lovely to have as many examples as possible to display from Year 3. There will be blue cards awarded to anyone who has a go!



Everyone should have a set of spellings to learn which will be tested on Thursday 7th November. 


Times Tables

Please make sure you are also learning and practising your times tables. Challenge yourself to achieve the level you are working towards when we return after half term.



Remember we also expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book. We will collect the home school books in on Tuesday 5th November to check this and award house points. You may even become ‘Reader of the Week’!


If you ever have any trouble completing your homework please come and speak to us. 

Mrs Jones and Ms Roome



Year 4


As we go into our half term holiday we are not setting a specific homework. 

However, we would like children to look over this half-term’s spellings ready for a test on the first Wednesday back. This will give us an idea as to how well they are retaining the rules.

Times Tables

Don’t forget to keep practising your times tables.

We will be doing Cracking Times Tables on Tuesday 5th November! 


Here are some fun online games that might help:













Reading regularly is essential to help improve all aspects of your learning as well as being an excellent way to relax! You are expected to read at least 4 times/week but aim to read everyday if possible! House points are awarded for reading and recording what you have read. 

We will be collecting Home School Books in on Tuesday 5th November. Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book.


Have a lovely break. We hope you have some fabulous autumn weather so that you can get outside in the fresh air.

Year 5


This homework is optional. You can complete it if you want to. 

The school is going to mark Remembrance Day on Monday 11th November. We are going to create a display of poppies in the Entrance Hall. We would also like to include some poetry in the display. This follows on nicely from the visit of James Carter to the school.

So for homework we would like you  to write your own poem based on the theme of Remembrance. This could be about poppies, your knowledge of WW1 or WW2, peace or memories. You can write any style of poetry of your choice and publish it using neat writing and illustration and colour. You could write a shape poem, an acrostic, a riddle or a rhyme. 

Bring your poems into school after the half term holiday.
