Homework due in on Tuesday 6th June.


Year 3


Miss Bartropp’s Maths Set

Title – Can I read information in tables, charts and graphs?

This week your homework is set on Mathletics! You have been set some activities based on reading and answering questions about bar charts, tables and pictograms. You must log in and complete the activities assigned to you. Remember I can see how long you have spent on them and how well you have scored.


Miss Weston’s Maths Set

Title – Can I collect information and create a bar chart?

Monkeys, Ostriches, Lions and Zebras – This week we have collected information from our classmates and created a bar chart to represent the information. Your homework for this week is to choose a question to explore, for example, ‘What is the most popular colour?’ Or ‘What is your favourite crisp flavour?’ etc. You must collected information in your tally chart by asking lots of people for their answer, then transfer the information into a bar chart. It will work better if you collect information from lots of people to make your bar chart more interesting! You must label the axes, gave your bar chart a title and created the ‘bars’ to show what you have collected using information from a tally chart.

Giraffes and Elephants – Your homework this week is to create a comparative bar chart – the ones we practised creating in Thursday’s lesson! Your instructions are on the sheet provided.


Remember to write a date and title neatly and underline it, sticking the sheet neatly in your book.


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 use adverbs?

You have been given a list of adverbs which you must put into a sentence. Remember, you can vary the position of the adverb to make your sentence more interesting. See the examples below:

At the beginning – Furiously, the teacher slammed the book down on the table.

In the middle – The teacher furiously slammed the book down on the table.

At the end – The teacher slammed the book down on the table furiously.

Please underline your adverb in a coloured pencil and remember to write a date and title beautifully into your book.



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 the first Tuesday back after half term. 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 half term! 

Miss Bartropp and Miss Weston


Year 4


Ms Hawes’ Maths Group

LC: Can I match equivalent fractions and decimals?

In Miss Hawes’ class this week, we have been looking at equivalent fractions and decimals, e.g. 3/10 is three tenths therefore it is 0.3. Your homework is matching the equivalent fractions and decimals and then writing the missing number. Please write it in your book, not the sheet.


Ms Pater’s Maths Group

LC: Can I create a bar graph?

You are going to collect data from books you have at home, to use  for some graph work.

You will need to design a data collection sheet or tally sheet to record your data.

Decide which categories you are going to use to collect your data, and then do your own book count. You might decide to use type of books e.g. Poetry-Nature-Atlases, or authors e.g. Roald Dahl, Jaqueline Wilson

You will then use the tally to create a bar graph, clearly labelling your chart.



LC: Can I add apostrophes for single and plural forms and create my own sentences using them?

This week you are going to help the residents of Springfield find the missing apostrophes.

Use the rules we covered in SPAG lesson this week to choose:

Apostrophe for possession e.g. The cat belongs to Lauren, it’s Lauren’s cat. (singular)

There are two Laurens and they both have cats, these are Laurens’ cats (plural)



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

You have the last set of the statutory words to learn. You will be tested on these on Wednesday 7th June when we return to school after the half term holiday.














In Science we are going to start to look at life cycles and in Art we are going to work on close observational drawing. We would like you to make a collection of artwork showing flowers – can you find pictures of flowers and bring them in? These could be from magazines, catalogues, wrapping papers, birthday cards. The flower pictures can be drawings or photographs.


We also want you to carry on with your reading. The holiday is a great chance to have a good read. We will want to see that you have read a whole book – try a new author or a new story genre. Well done to everyone who has tried some classic fiction – it has been good to see you have a read of something different.

Year 6

Half Term Homework

This half term is a celebration of the end of a lot of hard work and we want you to enjoy it! However, there are some things we need you to do…



Parts for the production have now been allocated. Some pupils are still awaiting their lines due to productions never having enough lines written for 60 children. However, whether you are waiting or not you are expected to read through the entire script to understand what the play is about and if you have lines then you need to learn them! After half term we will be rehearsing so are relying on you to be ready and enthusiastic for our stage directions.


Times Tables

Please keep doing some tables over half term so you don’t forget everything!



As always, you are expected to read at least 4 times a week – please ensure you have recorded this week’s reading as well as half term so your teacher can mark 2 weeks worth upon your return.



Spellings will resume as normal after half term – enjoy the week off!

Have a lovely break, be safe and see you when we are back ready for your final stint in Year 6.
