Creative Homework Tasks for 9–11 Year Olds

The imaginative, open-ended activities in Creative Homework Tasks for 9–11 Year Olds are sure to spark enthusiasm and lead to unprecedented behaviour – your upper Key Stage 2 children asking YOU for homework.

The tasks provide genuine opportunities to use and apply language and numeracy skills so are ideal for setting as English or maths homework. Some have links to other subjects, including science and technology, art and design and PSHE.

Giles Hughes, the author, has spent months of research, trialling the ideas in a number of Year 5 and Year 6 classrooms. All the activities have been specifically designed to stimulate children’s imaginations and bring out the creative element in every child, whilst providing genuine opportunities to practise essential skills.
