This week we have been identifying right angles, and learning about how turning is associated with right angles. We have also touched on different types of angles such as acute (smaller than a right angle and obtuse (bigger than a right angle).

Miss Weston’s Group

Monkeys and Ostriches – Your challenge is to sort the quadrilaterals by the number of right angles that they have. Take care with identifying right angles by using the corner of a piece of paper to help you.

Rest of Miss Weston’s Set –Your challenge I to identify the angles (acute, obtuse, right angle) and then look at the angles in the shapes to decide how many right angles, acute angles and obtuse angles there are in each.

Miss Bartropp’s Group

Stars and Hexagons – Complete the sheet on the man moving around the different shapes! Follow the instructions to see what shape he ends up at – see sheet for more information.

Rest of Miss Bartropp’s Set – Complete the turning maze sheet! Can you direct the alien or robot out of the maze using the words quarter turn, right angle, anticlockwise and clockwise? See sheet for more information.

 

Times Tables

Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We do Cracking Times Tables every Monday.

 

English

Title – Can I use a dictionary?

This week we have become ‘Dictionary Detectives’ and have been practising how to find words and definitions, as well as putting words in alphabetical order. This week your homework will require a dictionary. Please see the sheet tucked inside your English homework book for more information. Please make sure that you write the long date and title in your English homework book, and underline both with a ruler. Please also read the instructions carefully.

 

Reading

Remember we also expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book. We will collect home school books in every Monday.

 

Spelling

You have been given a new spelling list which has been stuck in the front of your blue spelling book. Your spelling words depend on which teacher teaches you for spelling. Remember, you must learn these spellings thoroughly and choose 2 to put into sentences underneath your list in the front of your book. If you score 7 or below in your test, you will sit a re-test the following day. If you do not complete the spelling sentences you will be asked to complete them that night, to show your teacher the following morning.

 

If you ever have any trouble completing your homework please come and speak to us.

Maths

Miss Wolfe/Mrs Baker

For the last two weeks we have been focusing on Shape. One of our challenges is to visualise, identify and construct a 3D shape. We know you can name and describe 3D shapes – now we want you to build one. For homework you need to draw the net of a 3D shape and then fold it together. We have given you a piece of card for the final shape and a piece of paper to have a try-out first. You will need a ruler, a sharp pencil and maybe a protractor. Be precise with measurements of sides and angles of corners. Your finished shape should join together perfectly!

If you want to keep it simple, construct a cube or cuboid.

If you want a challenge, construct a prism or pyramid.

Reminder – you must draw the net yourself (no printing off form the internet!)
