Homework due in on Tuesday 11th October
Miss Weston and Miss Bartropp’s Group
This week your homework will be on Mathletics. You have been set some challenges by your teacher that focuses on everything that we have covered this year so far in Maths: Place Value, Addition and Subtraction and Shape.
When you log onto Mathletics from home the activities that we have set will appear on the main screen. You just need to click onto them to complete them. Each quiz includes 10 questions on the chosen topic.
Remember that we can see how well you have completed the homework by looking onto our systems. We will still be rewarding house points based on what you achieve.
Please make sure you are also learning your times tables. We do Cracking Times Tables every Monday and so you should be learning your times tables to improve your score and achieve your level. There are 20 levels in total. The list of times tables required for each level is listed in your Home School Book
Title – Can I use and identify speech marks?
This week we have been looking at how inverted commas are used and how to use better words than said when writing a dialogue between two characters. Your task this week is to complete the sheet given to you by your teacher. All sheets involve punctuating speech correctly and using alternative words for said. Please read the instructions carefully.
You will be asked to redo your homework if we think you have not tried your best or if your presentation is not of a good standard.
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 to check this and award house points. You may even become ‘Reader of the Week’ and win a prize!
If you ever have any trouble completing your homework please come and speak to us.
Miss Bartropp and Miss Weston
This week we have been looking at multiplying mentally and at finding factors of numbers. Please complete the multiplication and division section set for you. After that if you wish to play Mathletics live, we would love to get onto the leader board.
English: Kalando link
Your homework for this week is to write a letter to a pupil at Kalando School in Kenya. Your letter should be written neatly. (Try to show them your best joined handwriting.) You may add some pictures or photos and use a border. You may write it on the computer if you wish. We will display copies of some of your letters on our new Kalando display in the hall.
This information may help to give you some ideas about what to write.
Kalando is situated in Ouygis, rural Western Kenya. We have had excellent feedback telling us that their pupils really enjoy our letters and love receiving them. A representative on behalf of our school will be taking our letters from each year group to Kenya just before half term.
This time the focus of your letter is: 10 things you never knew about me! You need to tell the recipient of your letter some interesting and unusual things about you and your life. You could write about a birthday party/ celebration/ football match /competition you took part in and include a picture / photo of the event. You could list 10 weird and wonderful things that are special about you.
Also ask the recipient some questions about them and their life. Did you know very few children in Kalando can swim or have even seen the sea? However, they are amazing at climbing trees with no harnesses/ ropes to help them. They make footballs by rolling recycling plastic bags!
Sign your letter with just your first name (eg: with best wishes, Harry)
Please use the school address, not your own.
Manor Farm Community Junior School,
Bucks HP15 7PH
This week we have been focusing on HS2 and how it might impact on the Chilterns. For your homework, please can you design a poster to persuade someone to your point of view in regard to whether HS2 should be built, or how it should be built? Think carefully about the title of your poster. You need a short catchy impacting phrase, question or sentence. You could think of the rule of three and repeat a word three times, you might play on someone’s emotions and begin a question with How would you feel….? Your poster should be A4 and could be portrait or landscape. You can use ICT, collage, watercolours, pencil shading, felt tips if you choose. This should be completed by Tuesday 11th October.
Keep your eye out!
Can you find lots of newspaper? We are going to be using it in art in the next few weeks to create sculptures.
Maths for both Mrs Bailey’s group and Miss Wolfe’s group
Please can you focus on your times tables this weekend, practising the areas that you need to. We would like to hand out a huge number of levels next week and want to give you the opportunity to really practise. Next week we will be looking at measuring angles using a protractor, so if you want to have a practise this weekend fantastic!
You still have a week remaining on your workhouse project! Remember, it is an extra special piece of homework and we want you to present your homework imaginatively!
This week we have been focusing on 2D and 3D shapes, learning about their properties. For your homework this week you have got an investigation to solve! This investigation is different depending on which Maths set you are in. Please put a date and a title, and make sure both are underlined with a ruler before starting your homework.
Make sure you also complete your Mental Maths corrections in your homework book, with a clear date and title.
Spellings – To be tested Monday 10th October
Continue to learn your statutory word list and remember to write your sentences clearly in your book. Ensure that you spell the word correctly in your sentences.
