Year 1 Homework - Paws, Claws & Whiskers


The new projects run for the first half of the summer term,  16th April to 18th May. 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.


  • Make a scrapbook all about your pet, or a pet belonging to someone you know. What is the pet’s name? What type and breed of animal is it? Add photographs and information about interesting things they do or things they need to stay healthy.
  • Find out about unusual pets using non-fiction books and the web.     Download a photograph of the most interesting pet and write their name. What does it eat? How should it be cared for?
  • Choose an endangered animal to draw or paint. Find out where it lives and why it is endangered. Bring your painting to school and tell your friends about your animal.
  • Write out your favourite animal nursery rhyme or poem in your best  handwriting. Illustrate it, then practise reading it aloud with lots of     expression. Perform it for your family and friends at home before your big performance at school!
  • Explain to your family what it means if an animal is carnivore, herbivore or omnivore. Find pictures of animals that belong in each group. 
  • Draw or paint the camouflage markings of a range of animals such as leopards, giraffes or tigers. Why does each animal have those particular markings?
  • Make a mini book, showing the animals and their names in your chosen language. Can you pronounce their names correctly
