Homework due in on Tuesday 24th January
Mathletics – Fractions Practice
For the past two weeks we have been learning about fractions. We have been able to find fractions in shapes, find equivalent fractions and find fractions of amounts. For your homework, we would like you to practise how to find fractions of shapes and amounts using Mathletics! You have been set some fractions quizzes and when you log into your account, the quizzes will appear on the home screen. Remember that your results are sent to us, so we will be able to see how well you have got on! Good luck!
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 ‘Hit the Button’ to practise your tables or Mathletics to try to score the most amounts of points this week to win the certificate.
Title: Can I plot a fantasy story using a story mountain?
For the past two weeks, we have been learning about fantasy story and have even written our own version of the fantasy story ‘Something Fishy’. For your homework, we would like you to create your own fantasy story, by plotting each section onto a story mountain. Remember, a fantasy story may use a portal which could transport you into a mythical or magical world. There may even be magical creatures. Remember…
The opening sets the scene.
The build-up describes how the character goes into the fantasy world.
The problem introduces an issue that the main character faces.
The resolution tells you how the character escapes the problem.
The ending closes the story. There may be a cliff-hanger!
You do not need to write the entire story, just what would happen in each section of your story.
We will be looking for an underlined date and title. We will also be checking that the presentation of your work is beautiful and neat.
As usual, we 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. It is not acceptable for Home School Books to be late into school, or not to have the relevant reading in. You will be made to miss a break time to catch up if this is not done to the expected standard. Remember you could be reader of the week!
Miss Bartropp and Miss Weston

This week we have revisited the use of apostrophes. We have already worked on how apostrophes are used to show possession and we have practised using apostrophes for the contraction of two words into one. You all have an activity to do with apostrophes. It will be one of these:
- Shortening a passage about a pet owner by using apostrophes for possession.
- Correcting a passage that needs apostrophes to show ownership.
- Practising joining two words by contraction.
Some of you will need to write out the passage and some of you have space to answer on the sheet.
Next week we are going to be reading and writing newspaper articles. We are going to look at the features of newspaper articles. Can you bring in an article which interests you from a newspaper – an adult should make sure the article is suitable and appropriate. First News is a newspepr designed for children.
