Homework due in on Tuesday 4th July

 

Year 3

Maths

Miss Bartropp’s Maths Set

Title – Can I identify number patterns?

In one lesson this week we looked at number patterns. We had to work out the pattern, and then write the next few numbers. You must work out the pattern on your sheet – remember sometimes the pattern might work with alternate numbers (every other number) and therefore you might have a two-step rule such as +2, -4, +2, -4. Some of you will have a repeated pattern like this; others will have a different pattern such as +2, +3, +4, +5. When you have discovered the pattern, you must work out the next few numbers in the sequence. You may work on the sheet to do this.

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

 

Miss Weston’s Maths Set

Title – Can I identify patterns in number sequences?

On Monday, we looked at number patterns within sequences. You must work out the rule and the pattern for each sequence and then write the next three numbers. You must copy each sequence into your book and write the next three neatly, writing the rule of each pattern next to your sequence, e.g. adding 3 and subtracting 1.

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.

 

English

This week your homework is based around a competition that has been sent to our school by young writers. It is a creative writing challenge where you need to write a story in just 100 words! You have been given a form which allows you to plan your mini saga by drawing your creature, writing about their name, tricks, skills and enemies and planning the main plot of your story. On the back page, you write your story by writing one word in each box. You may want to write your story in rough first, before writing it up onto your form. At the bottom, you must fill in the details so we can send them off to be judged! You must complete your homework ON the form provided and hand this into us next Tuesday. You must check your handwriting is neat and your spelling is as accurate as possible as they need to be able to read it clearly! If one of you is chosen as the winner, you will win £1000 for our school and the best 10 writers in the country will get a Crazy Creatures goody bag! Every single one of you will receive a bookmark and sticker for entering! We can’t wait to read your stories! Good luck!

 

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!

Year 4

Maths

Miss Hawes’ Maths Group

We have had so much fun revising our year 4 learning tracks with Miss Hawes’ quizzes this week so I have decided to make test 3 your homework! Write your working out in your homework book and let’s see if you can beat your PB!

 

Ms Pater’s Maths Group

LC: Can I choose and complete fractions investigation?

I was very impressed with your commitment and enthusiasm for our number system investigation last week.

I hope you will equally enjoy fractions of amount and/or fraction of families investigations I have prepared for you this week.

Choose one or try both, the choice is yours!

 

English

LC: Can I make a persuasive poster to a theme park?

We have been learning all about persuasive techniques this week. Your task is to create your OWN theme park! You need to persuade me to visit using ALL the persuasive techniques we have discussed in class. Make it FANTASTIC!

 

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

This is your last homework for the year so make sure you do a good job. Thank you to all of you who have handed in your homework promptly and made sure it is of a good standard.

 

English

We have been working on complex sentences. We have looked at adding a subordinate to a sentence.

For homework most of you have a sheet with eight simple sentences. You need to use the words at the top of the sheet to add a clause of extra information into the original sentence. Write your new sentences neatly in your homework book and make sure it is punctuated correctly.

If you have not been given a sheet then we want you to create and write your own complex sentences – showing that you can use one or two subordinate clauses within a single sentence and placed in different positions. Write 6 complex sentences about a common theme – for example, animals, nature, sport, your family or something you are interested in.

 

Miss Wolfe Mrs Baker Maths Homework

You will need a protractor.

You need to draw 2 different triangles and 2 different quadrilaterals in your homework book. Make them quite large as you need to measure and label the each angle inside the shape. Next to the shape do an addition sum to check the angles total 180 degrees for triangles and360 degrees for quadrilaterals.

Work neatly and use a sharp pencil and ruler for drawing.

 

Challenge: Can you construct a regular heptagon or regular octagon using a ruler and protractor?

 

Mrs Bailey’s Maths Homework

We have been working with decimals this week.  Your task is to round decimals. Use the number line on the sheet to help you.  Please read the sheet carefully and complete all sections.  You may choose whether you would like to complete Bronze, Silver or Gold.  Please make a sensible choice depending on how confident you are feeling – remember you can always change which section you are doing if you are finding it too easy or too challenging.


 

Year 6

Homework – Due Thursday 6th July

TITANIC PROJECT

We would like you to create a project, containing as much research and facts as you can about the Titanic.

You could think about the following areas: the construction of the ship, different classes and passengers on the ship, entertainment and facilities on board the Titanic, what happened when the Titanic sank, how people reacted to the sinking, how many people died, why so many lives were lost, what lessons have been learnt.

Project tips and expectations

  • A good project consists of pictures, subtitles and detailed information and a contents page. You might also want to include a glossary of words to help the reader.
  • Think about where you can find your information. You could get some books from the library or check the internet.
  • You are free to present your project as you wish; you can type it, handwrite it or have a mixture of both. When we last set you a project, some of you made some 3D models and put your information around that!
  • We want to see that you have made an effort to research different things and have taken care and thought carefully about presenting it beautifully. Think about how you could make your project interesting to read… You might want to have an outline of the ship and write your information inside, or have flaps which reveal facts!
  • Anything you write must be in your own words and you should make sure that you understand what you are writing about. We will be checking this.

As we are setting this as your Maths AND English homework for the next couple of weeks, you are expected to spend a minimum of 2 hours on this project.

Have a fantastic weekend.
