Homework due in on Tuesday 25th April


Year 3


Miss Bartropp’s Maths Set

Title: Can I calculate the perimeter of a shape?

This week we have been working on finding the perimeter of shapes. Please see the sheet you have been given, and follow the instructions given. The only group that is allowed to write on their sheet are STARS AND HEXAGONS. The rest of you must glue the sheet into your book and then write out your workings beautifully. Please ensure you have included a short date and title that has been underlined.


Miss Weston’s Maths Set

Title: Can I calculate the perimeter of a shape?

Your homework is to calculate the perimeter of the shapes on your sheet. You must show your workings out in your book and make sure that you line your numbers, including decimals up correctly. For the Giraffes and Elephants group, you must make sure that you convert your measurements into cm first, then find the perimeter by adding all of the sides together. For Q7, you need to make sure you find the missing sides first! Make sure you include a neat date and title which is underlined in pencil. You must work out in your book.


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 ‘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 use ‘a’ or ‘an’ correctly?

This week we complete a lesson on how to use ‘a’ or ‘an’ accurately. We learnt that you use ‘an’ when the next word begins with a vowel (a,e,i,o,u), and ‘a’ when the next word begins with a consonant. We also learnt about a few exceptions to this rule.

Cherries and Grapes – You have been given worksheet 1. Copy and complete the sentences into your homework book, ensuring you use ‘an’ or ‘a’ correctly.

Oranges and Pears – You have been given worksheet 3. Copy and complete the sentences into your homework book, ensuring you use ‘an’ or ‘a’ correctly.

Strawberries and Watermelons – Look at the sheet. You must look at the items given and put them into either a story, or sentences, ensuring that you use ‘an’ or ‘a’ correctly.


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!


Well done for making a positive start to your last term in Year 3!

Miss Bartropp and Miss Weston


Year 4


This week, in Miss Hawes’ Maths set, you have been set word division and multiplications problems.  If you have any difficulties, please see Miss Hawes before Tuesday. If you are in Ms Pater’s group you have been set word division and multiplications problems too. Please show your working out in the space provided and remember to answer each question in a full sentence.



We have been looking at the features of non-fiction texts and have been gathering information for writing our information leaflets on volcanos. We discussed the importance of consistently using present tense in this type of text, ( where possible).

Your task this week is to re-write the sentences on your worksheets in present tense. Pay particular attention to keeping the meaning of the sentence unchanged when altering the verb!



You have been given a new spelling list by your teacher and are expected to write at least FIVE spelling sentences to show that you understand what the words mean. Do not pick the five easiest spellings – challenge yourself and use a dictionary to help you. These will be checked next Friday during the next spelling lesson – let’s see who can get 3 house points!


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.



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 this week, have a great weekend!


Year 5


In Literacy we have started reading and discussing classic literature. We have looked at the book covers of stories such as:

Alice In Wonderland, The Secret Garden, The Hobbit, The Jungle Book and The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

For homework we would like you to interview and ask a parent or grandparent about what they liked to read when they were your age. We want you to find out about their reading habits when they were your age. Ask them the following questions (plus any other questions you can think of yourself) and write a report of their reading habits in your English homework book. Make sure you add a heading saying who you interviewed.

Which authors did you like to read?

What type of stories did you like to read?

What was your favourite book?

Was there a book which really inspired you?

Where and how often did you read?

What did you read at school?

Was there anything which you disliked reading?

Where did you get your books from?


You could also ask your parents or grandparents what sort of books they like to read now.



Miss Wolfe/Mrs Baker

You have some homework to complete on prime numbers. Some people have an investigation to find the hidden number written on the backs of 3 children and some people have a short set of questions to answer about prime and composite numbers. Answer in your homework book and please write the date and a title.

Mrs Bailey

You either have some homework to complete on either prime numbers or square numbers. Please complete either sections A or B for Prime Numbers or Bronze or Silver for Square numbers. Answer in your homework book and please write the date and a title.

This week you have been given contractions to learn – please make sure you learn them. You do not need to do any sentences for these are we are sure you know what their meanings are.

Reading and Times Tables

Please ensure you read 4 times and record this in your Home School Book for Monday. If you haven’t been ‘Reader of the Week’ this year, then push yourself this week to see if you can read more or write better comments! Being ‘Reader of the Week’ would be a great goal to aim for! Make sure you are also practising your times tables, so that you are ready to improve your score or even reach your next level next week!
