Once you have received this pen license, you will be given a special handwriting pen to complete your homework with. Please put the date and title in your books and underline with a ruler and pencil. We expect beautiful presentation, just like you have been showing us in class. You will be asked to redo your homework if we think you have not tried your best or if your presentation is scruffy.
Remember we also expect you to read at home at least 4 times a week and record this in your Home School Book. We will collect home school books in every Monday to look at your reading record for the previous week and will be awarding house points for the amount of reading you have completed.
If you ever have any trouble completing your homework please come and speak to us.

This week we have been looking at rounding and adding and subtracting mentally. Complete the homework set on Mathletics this week. If your child does not have access to the internet please let us know.
To celebrate Roald Dahl`s 100th birthday we have given out an entry form for a competition to invent a new chocolate bar. Please bring the competition form back to school and we will send them off as a year group.
We have been working hard on our persuasive writing this week. For homework we want you to practise the persuasive writing techniques which you have learnt.
We want you to think about the Manor Farm School uniform and how you would like to change it. You need to write a piece of writing describing what you think of the current uniform and how it could be improved. What do you like about it now? What could be made better? Is our uniform suitable for life in school? You can think about the colour and design of the uniform, the materials the clothes are made from and the items allowed for boys and girls. You could use ideas from other uniforms you have seen in other schools.
Remember you are writing a persuasive piece. Imagine you are trying to persuade Mr Sierant or the Governors to change the uniform. Be polite but give your opinions and reasons. Present your writing neatly in your homework book. Please write the date and LC: Can I write a persuasive piece? Hand in by Tuesday.

LC- Can I round numbers accurately?
This week we would like you to speak to an adult at home to get some details about yourself. Next week you are going to be writing an autobiography so will need to know loads of things! You might like to ask where and when you were born (as in the EXACT time), which hospital you were born in (if you were even born in a hospital?) how much you weighed, where your first house was (if it is different to now), and any other specific details you know so that you can come prepared next week for your lesson. You should remember to present your work beautifully and ensure you do a date and title.
