This week’s homework is Creative.

To research a naturalist (e.g. David Attenborough).

​A naturalist is an expert in natural history. In preparation for our big topic Life Forces, we would like you to research a naturalist of your choice. From this research, create a summary of your chosen person. You can present your summary in any way you choose. For example, you might create a leaflet, an encyclopaedia entry or an article for a magazine about this person’s work. We will share these presentations in our homework session.

Our times tables focus will be the 9 times table (up to 12 x) and including division facts.

Practise counting forwards, backwards, starting from zero and then starting from a multiple, and don’t forget the traditional way to support your child: a couple of mock tests to see how well your child knows their tables! Make the link between other facts that belong to this family. For example, 3 x 9 = 27 and so 3 x 90 will be 270.
