Homework due in on Tuesday 10th January


Year 3

We’ve had a great first day back in Year 3 after the Christmas Holidays!



Title: Can I draw a pictogram?

Today we have learnt how to collect information and present them in a pictogram so this is what your homework is based on.

Miss Weston’s Set – Maths

You must think of a question you would like the answers to. For example: What is your favourite pet? What is your favourite meal? You must display this as a tally chart, with multiple choice options for people to choose from. Once you have completed your survey, you must put this information into a pictogram like you did today in class.

Miss Bartropp’s Set

You have been given a tally chart which shows some information. You must use this information to draw a pictogram. Please see your sheet for more information.


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 identify common antonyms?

Today we introduced you to antonyms which are words that are the opposite of each other. For example, the antonym of old is young, the antonym of big is small. For your homework this week, you must use your reading book to find 10 words to write down in your English homework book. You must think of the antonym of each word and write it alongside it.

For example:

  1. Ancient = Modern
  2. Clumsy = Careful

The words that you choose will show us which children are trying to challenge themselves. If you want to practise more, you could write a sentence for each antonym to show that you know what it means and how to use it.


Remember we will be looking for a date and title, which has been underlined. 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


Year 4

Welcome back. We hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas break.

As it has been a short week, homework will be based on spellings and times tables. We have discussed the importance of knowing times tables facts randomly and rapidly.  We expect to see improvements in Cracking Times Tables scores each week. As an incentive we will be offering housepoints for improved scores each week. A blue card will be given if you have 3 consecutive improved scores.

English  We  would like you to write sentences to show you can use the spelling words correctly to show their meaning. You may need to look up the meanings of any unknown words in a dictionary. Eg: Unfortunately, Mr Cook walked with a slight limp after he hurt his ankle playing football last Saturday. Remember to underline the spelling in each sentence.

PE:We will still be having our PE sessions on Thursdays and Fridays.  As the weather is getting colder, please make sure you have kit with you that will keep you warm.


Year 5

Welcome back to an exciting term for Year 5!

We shall be swimming on a Tuesday afternoon which will start next week on Tuesday 10th January.  You will need your swim kit (tight fitting shorts, not board shorts for boys, and a swimming costume, not a bikini, for girls).   If you have long hair please have a swimming hat.  We will still be having our PE sessions with Mr Green on Thursdays.  As the weather is getting colder, please make sure you have kit with you that will keep you warm.


Science Homework

This week we have begun our topic on Earth and Space and we have been thinking about the things that we might find within our Solar System.  We would like you to create a fact file on your chosen area.  I have chosen……………………………………………….  If you have chosen a planet you might think about: how many moons it has; who discovered it or what its temperature is.  If you have chosen the Moon you might think about: what it is made of; or perhaps including a map of all its craters.  If you are looking at meteors or comets: are there any famous ones; how often do we see them in our night skies?  If you are researching the Sun perhaps think: how big it is; and if there are any stars like it in our galaxy.

Our homework shall be for display so you need to think carefully about your presentation, making sure it is colourful, neat and can be read from a distance.  We would like to feature them all on our displays so please don’t make them larger than A4.  Your work can be landscape or portrait, and if you would like to use ICT you may.   When researching your chosen topic please read the information and put it in your own words.  The internet is very useful but you may find information in atlases, information books and newspapers too.  We feel this will take you time to complete so for this week we would like you to use the time you would spend on your English and Maths homework to complete your factfiles.


Year 6

Please remember that your project homework is due in next Tuesday.
