Take Care Homework
Each term our children are provided with a 'palette of choice' for their homework. This consists of a series of tasks, closely matched to their engaging topics that involve a broad range of skills and link to their learning for the term.
Children are then able to choose any number of the tasks to complete throughout the term as homework. This is then brought into school to share with their class in the last week. The children showcase their learning so that others can celebrate their hard work and teachers can provide children with meaningful feedback.
Samantha's class topic this term has been 'Holding out for a Hero' where the children have been learning about inspirational figures in past and present times that have had an impact on our current lives.
As part of her 'Take Care' homework Samantha created a Sustainable Energy Environment that included: wind turbines, a river, solar panels and abandoned coal and nuclear power plants.
We're sure you can see from the photograph of Samantha with her homework and her blurb that she certainly has the Colsterworth 'WOW' Factor!
The most important benefit of helping your child is that it shows how much you value education. Parents and carers are often keen to support sporting activities and hobbies, but less confident to support academic progress. At Colsterworth we aim to break down any barriers to supporting your child.
