I have decided to set our children in Year 1-6 an optional piece of holiday homework.
The task, if they wish to take it on, is to write a book review of ‘Danny the Champion of the World’ – the book I have been reading to Year 1-6 this half term. To help with the homework I have included a ‘Book Review Toolkit’ (full of key words, phrases and names of key characters that will help children form the review) and a simple book review writing frame. I have sent both of these documents (below) to all children in Yr 1-6 through their @tabecat.com email addresses.
When we return in January (08.01.13) children can hand their finished work into me. I will then showcase some of the work through the school website! I am happy to receive work that has been completed on a computer (if they’re really brave they can attach it in an email to me: firstname.lastname@example.org) or using pen/pencil and paper.
I hope that children enjoy the task and please remember, it is entirely optional!
