Homework due in on Tuesday 29th November


Year 3

Miss Weston’s Set – Maths

Title: Can I record time and time duration?

This week we have continued with learning how to tell the time, we have looked at time duration and compared units of time. For your homework this week, I would like you to record five activities that you do this week. You must know the time that you start, the time that you finish and the time taken to do the task. For example, I might start cleaning my teeth at 8:15. I finish at 8:18, so it has taken me 3 minutes. You could look at longer activities, such as playing football or a dance lesson. You must record your work neatly, in pencil, on the sheet provided. You must also neatly write your date and title. Instructions for how to complete the sheet are written in more detail at the bottom of the sheet.

Miss Bartropp’s Set – Maths

Title: Can I solve problems about time?

You have been given a sheet about solving problems or telling the time. Please make sure you read the sheet carefully. You may work on the sheet and then stick it into your Maths Homework book neatly. Remember to put the short date and title, and underline them both with a ruler.


Times Tables

Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We do Cracking Times Tables every Monday. You may also want to play on Mathletics over the half term.



Title: Can I write a set of Instructions?

We have introduced you to instruction writing this week, so your homework is going to be to write some instructions in your book using the information provided.

Cherries and Grapes – You have been given a set of muddled up instructions for How to Get Ready in the Morning. You need to read them carefully and put them in order using numbers to help you to order them, e.g. 1) 2) 3). You must make sure you copy each spelling neatly and correctly into your homework book. CHALLENGE – Underline the bossy verb (imperative verb) in a coloured pencil with a ruler.

Oranges and Pears – You have been given a format in which to write in to write the instructions for How to Make a Sandwich. You must use imperative verbs (bossy verbs) at the start of each sentence, e.g. Put, Spread, Add. You could add adverbs, e.g. slowly, carefully, gradually. You must also make sure you add every step that is needed so that if someone were to use your instructions they could make a sandwich correctly. Write in pencil in your neatest writing with a date and a title at the top.

Strawberries and Watermelons – You must write a set of instructions in your homework book using adverbs, imperative verbs, detailed sentences and a clear structure. You must also have a section for ‘What you need’. Your instructions are going to be to explain ‘How to Run a Bath’. Make the bath really interesting, you could have bubbles, candles, music, rubber ducks! Up to you! But it must include lots of detail! Put your date and title neatly and clearly before starting.



If you have been given a speaking part in the Christmas production, you should continue to practise learning how to say your lines with expression and volume at home, ready for our performance, which is less than 3 weeks away!



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. Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book. Whilst most of you are fantastic at doing this every week, there are some children who must make sure their Home School Books are in on time with these readings recorded! Remember you could be reader of the week!

Year 4

Maths: LC: Can I use equivalent fractions and find fractions of amounts.

This week we have been looking at fractions. We have learnt how to find equivalent fractions by multiplying or dividing the numerator and denominator eg: 2/3rds =6/9ths,  25/30 = 5/6.

We have also learnt how to find fractions of amounts eg ¼ of 24 =6, ¾ of 24 = 18.

Mrs Pilgrims group – log onto your mathletics and try out the fractions activities set for you.

Mrs Brays group – complete the fractions worksheet on the sheet – and then you may have a go at mathletics – equivalent fractions (but this will not be recorded against your name)

Please also keep practising your times tables as this will help you !!


English: LC: Can I use homophones?

Choose the correct homophone to complete each sentence – answer on the sheet.



We have been looking at how to create plurals by adding s and es. Please write at least 2 sentences from your spelling list to show you understand their meaning.

Eg: The bunches of juicy black grapes hung from the twisting vines.

Challenge:  link all your sentences into a story. Please remember to bring your spelling book back into school for your test on Thursdays.

Please also learn your lines and songs for the Christmas production.


Year 5


This week we have looked at fractions. We have done really well with this. You have been allocated some units on Mathletics to complete.

Sorcerers – you have work on improper and mixed fractions, ordering fractions and placing fractions on a number line

Wizards and Elves – you have work on equivalent fractions and mixed and improper fractions.

Please spend 30 to 40 minutes on your Mathletics homework.



Who is the better hero, Theseus or Hercules?  You decide!  Write us a paragraph with your view on which is the better hero, and give reasons for your opinion.  You may need to compare their faults as well as their positive qualities.  This should be presented neatly in your homework book, being careful of your punctuation and presentation.
