Current Homework

Each week the children are set three pieces of homework on a Friday which are due the following Thursday:


  • Children need to read three times a week and record this in their reading diary.
  • Weekly maths activities are set on Mathletics (log-ins are glued into your child's homework book). 
  • Spellings should be written out once and then practised in preparation for a test on Thursday. 


In addition to this, children have one piece of project homework linked to our topic which is due the second to last week of term. Please see below for suggested ideas!

Peasants, Princes & Pestilence - 1st half Autumn Term


The new projects run for the first half of the Autumn term, Monday 10th September to Friday 12th October. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home.


Below are a list of ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related.


  • Search your local library to find out if the plague of the 14th century affected a village or town near you.
  • What information can you find out?
  • Write a letter to a child of the 21st century imagining you are a peasant child of the 14th century. What could you tell them about your life?
  • Design a coat or arms for your family. What symbols would you use and what would they represent? What would be your family motto?
  • Find out what happens when something decomposes. Place an apple core, orange or grape in a transparent container and watch as it decomposes. Document what happens but don’t open the container! When you have finished your investigation throw away the sealed container.
  • Use a map of the UK to identify castles of the Middle Ages. Make a scrap book or journal to research facts about one of them. Be prepared to present your scrap book to others.
