Title – Can I divide?

Monkeys and Ostriches – You have been given a sheet of dividing 3 digits by 1 digit. You must copy the sum into your book neatly with a ruler to create the bus stop. You must also include an underlined date and title.

Lions and Zebras – You have been given a sheet of dividing 3 digits by 1 digit where there will be remainders. You must copy the sum over into your book neatly with a ruler to create the bus stop. You must also include an underlined date and title.

Giraffes and Elephants – You have been given nine division word problems which each include two steps. You may need to add, subtract or multiply in each, as well as divide to solve the problem! Read the problem carefully using RUCSAC. Write a date and title in your book making sure that it is neatly underlined.

 

Times Tables

Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We will be doing Cracking Times Tables on Monday! It is vital that you keep practising and improving on your scores.

Title – Can I mind map a range of sounds?

Next week we will be looking at poetry. In preparation for this, we would like you to choose one room in your house. It could be the bedroom, the bathroom, the kitchen, the garden or the living room. Using the pre-prepared sheet provided, we would like you to mind map all the different sounds you may be able to hear in this room and what they are like e.g. the tap dripping slowly in the sink, the moaning, noisy lawnmower in the garden or the kettle whistling and boiling in the kitchen. We will be looking for really descriptive vocabulary to describe your sounds. Please glue your mind-map into your English homework book. We will be checking for a date and title and beautiful presentation and handwriting.

 

Reading

As usual, we expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book. We will be collecting Home School Books in on 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!

 

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Bartropp and Miss Weston

LC: Can I write a diary entry?

Following our adventures in Green Park, your task is to write a diary entry for each day. Remember to include time connectives and punctuate your sentences correctly.

 

Spellings

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.

 

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 this week, have a great weekend!

 


Year 5

English

This week we have enjoyed comparing Just William to Horrid Henry. We gathered information about both characters and decided which one we preferred. We have also watched cartoons and dramatisations of both stories.

For homework we would like you to create a short story based on the adventures and exploits of Just William. You need to send him on an adventure with his gang, The Outlaws, and show his mischievous ways. Use all the information you know about William – his family, friends, likes, dislikes, habits and escapades. Try to show his character and personality in your story.

We want you to present your story in a carton strip. This should be set out on a series of boxes for different scenes. It should take up 2 sides of A4.  You need speech bubbles and maybe some narration or captions. Have a clever title for the story and a clever ending.

Your cartoon strip must be neat and carefully presented in colour. You have 2 weeks to complete this task.    It should be handed in by Tuesday 23rd May.

 

Maths

This week, we would like you to complete part of an arithmetic test. The test is like the Year 6 Arithmetic paper which you will take next year. We want to see exactly what you have learnt so far this year and what you can do on your own, so please answer all these questions without any help. Have a try! We are going to go through the answers in class. You need to write on the sheet and show all your workings out.  Please work neatly and in pencil.  Put your answer in the white box at the bottom of each question.  There are several different tests, so do not worry if your test is different from your friend’s.


 

Year 6

Here are two parts that you need to learn and rehearse ready to audition on Monday 22nd May. Please remember to try your hardest, we want everyone to be able to take part in the production and will give parts out according to your auditions. The harder you try the more chance there is of you getting the part you want! We will be looking for confidence, clarity of voice as well as enthusiasm and actions if you can! Good luck J

 

CANDY KING:        Suspect me? I’m the Candy King, they all love me. They think I’m a sweet sugary softie! They don’t know that beneath my candy coated shell I conceal… a dark centre! Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha! (he laughs with evil finger wiggles)

CANDY KING:        (manically) Mad? Me? I just want to enslave mankind, destroy civilisation, conquer the Earth and make every mortal bow before me as emperor of the universe! (sweetly, up close to the scientists) Does that sound mad to you?
