History project

We are asking you to complete a special history homework for our 1960s exhibition!

Our exhibition will take place on Wednesday 17th July between 9 and 9:30am. All parents and carers are welcome to attend.

At home, please make a poster, picture or model to show an important aspect of the 1960s.

It could be...

Neil Armstrong walking on the moon

A piece of art in the style of a 1960s artist eg Andy Warhol

Posters of children’s TV characters from the 60s

A poster showing the pop groups from the 60s

1960s clothes

1960s toys


Have fun creating something amazing at home.  We look forward to seeing it later in the term!


Week 1 & 2


Pick your favourite traditional tale (e.g. The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears) 

Can you think of actions to help you while you tell the story? Can you draw a story map to order the events? Ask a friend or an adult to look at your story map and see if they can tell the story using it to help them too.


Maths - Adding and subtracting

How quickly can you add and subtract numbers to 10? 4 + 5, 3 + 6, 2 + 8. Practise lots of combinations so you can improve your speed.



Design a series of butterflies and moths wings to allow them to use their camouflage in nature. Think about how their camouflage could work if they were hiding in trees, against bark, in flowers or somewhere else. Could you then design a brightly coloured butterfly to warn off predators? 



We will be sending home some sheets with real and alien words to practise at home

Alternative spellings

Week 1 - r (wr) - e.g. red, roar, wrap, wriggle.      oo (u) - e.g. look, shook, pull, full 

Week 2 - Phonics screening week. Please focus on alien words.


Week 3 & 4


See if you can think of a set of questions for the characters in your chosen traditional tale. Write the question down and check you have used your question mark correctly. See if you can write answers to each of your questions. Do these answers deserve a full stop or an exclamation mark?


Maths week 3 - Money focus

Give your child a handful of coins to count up. Can they recognise them? Can they count them in 2s 5s and 10s? Can they find amounts to 50p (e.g. 32p)? or £1 (e.g. 76p)?



Find a series of plants and vegetables (these can be pictures or words rather than real plants and vegetables!).

Can you sort them into groups that you can eat and groups that you can't? Are there some plants other animals eat that humans don't?



Week 3 - z (s, se) - e.g. zoo, pies, cheese.     or (al, our, augh) - e.g. for, four, caught, chalk

Week 4 - ee (y, ie, ea) - e.g see, daddy, eat, chief.     s (st, se) - e.g sun, listen, house



Weeks 5, 6 and 7 


Make a booklet or a poster about an animal. Write sentences and draw pictures to make it as interesting and look as exciting as possible. See if you can use 'and' in one of your sentences to join two similar ideas.

E.g. An giraffe has a long neck and they use it to reach the top of trees.


Maths weeks 5, 6 and 7 - Number bonds

Practice adding and subtracting numbers to 20. Now you know the number bonds to 10, the numbers to 20 should be easier!


Think about the different seasons. Make a leaflet or booklet describing the differences we have found this year. This could include differences in weather, times of sunsets and sunrises and the months of the year for each season.



Week 5 - ar (a, al) e.g - car, rather, half.     ear (eer, ier) - e.g hear, deer, pier.

Week 6 - air (ere, ear, are) e.g. hair, where, care, bear.     ur (or, ear) - e.g. fur, word, learn.

Week 7 - u (o) e.g. much, other.     u/(y)oo (ue, ew, u-e) - e.g. euse, few, value
