The homework for half term will support the children's learning in class. Prior to half term and SRE week the children were given a project to complete based on creating their own Summer Camp. This included writing a business plan which would include, what they were going to create, where, when and how. They were also asked to create a map of the site which included measurements of facilities. We will be looking at budgeting and setting up an open day for the launch of their Summer Camp.
As homework I'd like the children to create their own 3D model of their summer camp so that they can present it within class when they present the other areas of their project. The 3D model can be created using recycled materials or other materials that you may have laying around. The model should demonstrate some of the facilities that they are including in the Summer Camp. If you are in contact with your partner for the project you may create one model together.

This weeks homework is all about discussion and calculating the amount of water you use at home. I'd like you to calculate your water usage on the BBC website, click here. You may want to ask your parents for a little support and discuss the usage as you go through the calculations. Think about some questions:
Do we use this device/amount all year round?
Could we save the amount of water we use?
Could we recycle some of the water used?
Where does all the water come from?
Are we using more or less than other families I wonder?
This last question will lead us on to next weeks work. Please bring the figure with you to school on Monday.
