Home Learning


Term 6

This term our topic question is, ‘Paris Olympics’.

 We will be thinking about the similarities and differences between the ancient and modern Olympics and then making a timeline of the mascots from over the years. After that, we will be using maps and atlases to identify France and Paris and then we will be looking at physical and human geographical features of France.

Here is a menu of homework ideas for this term. Please can your child complete a minimum of 5 tasks over the course of the term. Homework should be returned on a Wednesday. Please encourage your child to write in pencil and complete their work neatly.

We look forward to seeing what you choose!


Thank you for all your support in your child’s home learning. Please come and ask if you have any questions.

Mrs Beard & Mrs Abobakir

Key Instant Recall Facts

To help develop children’s fluency in mathematics, we ask them to learn Key Instant Recall Facts each half term (for Year 1 this starts in Term 2).

Children should aim to practise their KIRFs at least 3 times a week.

 Please see attached this term’s list of KIRFs which are aligned to the new maths curriculum. They are intended to be challenging and where possible the children will be taught the necessary maths in lessons beforehand.

If you have any questions about how to help your child with these at home please speak to your child’s class teacher.
