Dojo Dip

In line with the school behaviour system, all of the children in year one are rewarded using green dojos and sanctioned using red dojos. At the end of each week, the child who has been awarded the most green dojos is the 'Dojo Dip winner' and can choose a book from our selection to take home. 

The children who have won the dojo dip each week will be put on the class Twitter page on a Friday.



Homework will be given out on a Wednesday, related to our English, maths or topic learning for the week.

Children can also complete a piece from our Pick and Mix Homework if they wish.

Reading Books - Please write a comment/sign in your child’s reading diary each night and note pages read. E.g. Page 1-end.

Pick and Mix Homework

 Visit it:

  • Go to the library and choose a book recommended by your grown up.
  • Go on a woodland walk and see how many different animals you can see, can you work out which animal classification they fall into?

Research it:

  • Research the continent where penguins live, how many facts can you find?

Compute it:

  • Use a search engine to help you to find facts about Antarctica and decide if you could survive there.

Make it:

  • Can you make an igloo using items from around your house?

Hunt it:

  • As you are walking around the local environment, discuss with your child any seasonal changes you can observe. Collect interesting signs of winter turning into spring.

Experiment with it:

  • Which materials would keep you warm in Antarctica? Can you design and carry out an experiment to test which material would be the best one to keep something warm?
