5B homework (2/12/2020)

Another homework to help you with MyOn and our Science topic on forces. Please find a book on MyOn called ‘Scoop, Seesaw and Raise’ about levers.


Can you define the words below using YOUR OWN WORDS. You can use the book and dictionary to help, but you won’t be learning if you copy and paste! Tip – be careful with the word ‘effort’ – make sure your definition is about forces. Don’t forget to do the quiz!

Listening lesson

Year 1 have been enjoying listerning to some music this week.

When we listen to music, we often see pictures in our imaginations – the music might make us think of a place, or a character or maybe each sound has its own shape.

Year 1 and 2 have been listening to a piece of music by Vivaldi which is all about Winter. They listened to the music and created their own art work.


  • What can you see?
  • What colours are you going to use?
  • What does the music make you think of?

Keep on listening to the clips while you create your masterpiece.

The children in Year 1 said the music made them feel cold, like they were outside playing in a snow storm!

Year 4 homework

This week is assessment week, so the children are working hard doing English, Maths and SPAG tests. We know it may be hard to complete art activities at home. However, we thought it might be nice to give the children the chance to create some autumn inspired art. You can use materials from around the house like cotton buds, or leaves from your garden. Decorate them with paint or felt tips. Here are some examples:
