Mrs Furniss

Homework week ending 15.2.19



In science this half term, your child has been learning about different food groups. Please help them to complete a food diary for each day of the holiday. We have looked at food diaries for different adults in lessons to identify the number of fruits and vegetable portions eaten each day, and to calculate how much sugar they eat each day. Please help your child to identify the foods they eat that contain sugars. The NHS recommendation for children is no more than 6 teaspoons of sugar per day. The aim of this homework task isn’t to judge the diet of the children, but to make the children more informed about what they are eating. Hopefully, it will encourage them to make more healthy choices, and also help them to understand why adults limit their consumption of certain foods.


Please help your child to spell the words for week 6 from the spelling list. After the holiday, there will be a test of all the words from Spring 1.


Your child has been given a piece of paper of their choice with an illustration on. Using the information text from the reading comprehension, please encourage your child to write an information text about LS Lowry. Your child can also find information from other sources including the internet. Please discourage your child from copying whole chunks of text though. This text could include:

  • Headings
  • Questions and answers
  • Did you know…   fact boxes
  • Writing organised into paragraphs

Some of this work will be displayed at our Lowry gallery next half term.

Have a good holiday!
