Homework - Friday 29th January 2016
This week Year 1 have topic based homework. As you know, our topic this term is 'Carnivals.' We are looking at the carnival in Rio de Janeiro and comparing it with the National Urdd Eisteddfod in Wales. Next week, the children will be writing a persuasive postcard about either Rio or the Eisteddfod.
The homework is to find a minimum of 3 facts about both events. (There is a sheet in the book provided to complete this). Please discuss each carnival with your child and ask them questions about which one they would prefer to attend and why. We have studied them in school, so children do have some knowledge about each carnival, if you are unable to research further.
We have also included a postcard template. Your child is to choose their favourite carnival; Rio de Janeiro or the National Urdd Eisteddfod, and draw a picture on this template to represent their favourite event. Please do not stick these in the homework books as we will be using them to support their writing next week.
If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to come in and see us.
