Homework 2.3.17

Homework due in on Tuesday 7th March.

 

Year 3

Maths

Miss Bartropp’s Maths Set

Title: Can I add and subtract measurements of length?

This week we have been learning about converting measurements of cm and mm. We have also practised how to add and subtract measurements of length. For homework, you must solve the word problems on your given sheet. You need to pull out the numbers that are needed, and decide whether you need to add or subtract them. You then need to lay these workings out in your book and add or subtract them together accurately. Remember, you must include your units! I will be expecting a clear date and title and one number per square only!

 

Miss Weston’s Maths Set

Title: Can I measure and convert units of length?

This week we have been learning about length and how to convert from cm to mm and m. We have also learnt how to add and subtract measure. For homework, you have had the choice of three tasks, all of them include measuring objects and some involve conversion of measures. You need to work your answers out carefully and then use a place value grid to help you to convert. I will expect a clear date and title.

 

Times Tables

Make sure you are learning your times tables every day. It is disappointing that some children are not learning them as often as they should be. Children in Year 3 should be at least on Level 5 by the end of July so it is important that if you are below this level, you keep trying to improve! It is very evident in class who has been learning them. You could play ‘Hit the Button’ to motivate you to learn them or go on Mathletics.

 

English

Title: Can I use commas in lists?

Cherries and Grapes – You have been given a sheet with a list of shopping items on. You must complete the sentences by listing the items using commas and one ‘and.’ You must write the sentences in your English Homework book. Try and use adjectives to add extra detail. There is an example on your sheet to help you.

Oranges, Pears, Strawberries and Watermelons – You have been given a sheet with a list of shopping items on. You must use the person’s name, and the items to write them in lists. The example shows you how detailed you must be with your sentences.

 

Reading

We are continuing to check Home School Books every Monday. Remember you need at least four readings each week with an adult signature. If you record more than four readings then the amount of house points that you could get increases too! Well done to the children who were awarded blue cards last week for their efforts!

Year 4

Maths

This week you have been assigned Mathletics homework. Please log into the Mathletics website and complete the work. If you have time, compete against other children on the ‘live’ section. If you are unable to get onto the internet at home, please speak to your teacher.

 

English

Thursday was World Book Day and to mark this occasion we would like you to produce a book recommendation for a Year 4 pupil on one of your favourite books. You have received a sheet to do it on. One side is for planning which can be written as notes and the other side is for your recommendation. On the back of your recommendation we would like you to draw an illustration related to your book.

 

Cracking Times Tables

Please keep working on your times tables and try and beat your score from last week! We will be looking for those children who are really trying to improve each week. The Government state that all children should know their tables from 1-10 by the end of Year 4.

 

Reading

Don’t forget your Home School Book on Monday and make sure you have recorded all of your reading properly. We will be looking for a new ‘Reader of the Week’ and expect AT LEAST four reading entries in the Home School Book.

Well done Year 4 for this week, have a great weekend.


 

Year 5

English

This week we have looked at adverbs. We have learnt how they describe the verb. Everyone has some work to do on adverbs – this could be adding adverbs to spoken sentences, identifying adverbs in a passage of writing or using adverbs to add description to sentences. Most of your homework can be completed on the sheet. Once completed, please stick the sheet in neatly. Write a date and title in your book – Can I use adverbs within sentences?

 

Maths

Miss Wolfe/Mrs Baker

We have been revisiting fractions this week. For your homework you have a fraction jigsaw to complete. Some people have multiplying proper fractions and some people have multiplying mixed numbers. You need to match the sum to the answer by placing them side by side. If correct, you should create a 2D shape using all the pieces. Once you have finished you can stick the complete jigsaw into your Maths book (you will need a double page) or take a photo of the completed shapes and stick the photo into your Maths book.

Mrs Bailey

You have work on mixed and improper fractions. Please choose one section to complete – one that challenges you but is manageable. Use the title Can I convert between mixed and improper fractions?

 

Reminder

Year 5 are travelling to the Wycombe Swan theatre on Wednesday 8th March for a rehearsal for our concert at the Albert Hall. Please make sure you are wearing school uniform. You will need to bring a mid-morning snack of a piece of fruit, a packed lunch and a couple of drinks – you will get thirsty after singing a lot! Make sure drinks are in plastic bottles only. We shall be in the theatre all day. There will be many children from other Wycombe schools. We will leave at 9.15 and and return to school at 2.45pm. Please make sure your parental consent form has been returned to the school office – we cannot take you without it.


 

Year 6

English

GRAMMAR BOOK – Pages 2 to 7 on Nouns and Pronouns

 

Maths

GEOMETRY, MEASURES AND STATISTICS BOOK – Pages 35 to 39 on Tables, Charts and Graphs

The minimum expectation is that you spend half an hour on these tasks, however with the SATs tests looming it is a great opportunity to be doing some revision which may take longer.

 

Spelling

Please revision your ‘tious’ and ‘cious’ list ready for your test on 14th March (You have an extra week for spellings as we had assessment week)

 

Reading and Times Tables

As usual, we are expecting to see a minimum of 4 pieces of reading for this week.

You also need to ensure that you are practising your times tables.

Please remember to bring your mental maths on Friday if you haven’t shown it to your teacher already.

    • Mrs Ketley

      I’ve just asked Mrs Atkinson for you Lucy. There was no mental maths on Friday as it was World Book Day so no mental maths homework 🙂
