Comment: Off

Homework is due in on Tuesday 19th September.

 

Year 3

 

This week we have been focusing on settling in and learning how things are done in Junior school. Every week you will be given Maths and English homework. We expect you to spend at least 20 minutes completing each piece of homework. You will be given it on a Thursday each week and we expect it to be handed in by the following Tuesday.

 

On top of Maths and English homework, we also expect you to read at home at least 4 times a week and record this in your Home School Book. We have been very impressed with how many of you have done this already. We will collect home school books in every Monday to look at your reading record for the previous week and will be awarding house points for the amount of reading you have completed. If you ever have any problems completing your homework, please let us know.  Remember, we expect all of you to put as much effort into your homework as you do in your school work and we look forward to seeing what you’ve done.

 

This week your homework is …

Maths

You have been given your username and password for Mathletics which we will be using in school and for occasional homework this year. It is important that you learn how to access and how to use this system, so for your first Maths homework of this year, we would like to you to spend 20 minutes using different parts of Mathletics. There are quizzes that you could try and a live Mathletics section, where you can compete against other users.

 

English

We would like you to create a book cover and a review of your favourite book using the template provided. On one side you need to design your own front cover for the book you choose to review, making sure that you include the book title and author name. On the other side you need to write a short review about what happens in the book and what makes it your favourite. These will be going on display in your classrooms, so try your best with your handwriting, drawings and colouring in.

 

The Year 3 Team


 

Year 4

Maths

Miss Bartropp’s Maths Set

Title – Can I order numbers beyond 1000?

Stars and Hexagons – You must order the five 4-digit numbers from smallest to largest in your Maths homework book. Most of them have different thousands to help you order them, however you may find that two numbers begin with the same number so you need to look at the next number to help you order them correctly.

Triangles and Squares – You must order the five 4-digit numbers from smallest to largest in your Maths homework book. All of the numbers have got similar digits so you must make sure you order the accurately.

Pentagons and Diamonds – You must order the seven 4-digit numbers from smallest to largest in your Maths homework book. All of the numbers have got similar digits so you must make sure you order the accurately.

All of you must make sure you have the short date and title in your homework book. Remember one number belongs in one square but you may use normal handwriting when writing the date.

 

Ms Pater’s Maths Set

Title – Can I order numbers beyond 1000?

Ostriches, Monkeys, Zebras and Lions – You must order the 4-digit numbers from smallest to largest in your Maths homework book. Use your understanding of the place value to work quickly and efficiently.

Giraffes and Elephants – You must order the 5-digit numbers from smallest to largest in your Maths homework book. Use your understanding of the place value to estimate and to work quickly and efficiently.

All of you must make sure you have the short date and title in your homework book. Remember one number belongs in one square but you may use normal handwriting when writing the date.

 

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

Title – Can I write the opening to a story?

This week we have been using similes, alliteration, adjectives and personification to describe the atmosphere at the beginning of a story. We have been using this alongside short sentences and ellipsis to show a change in atmosphere when something sudden happens. For homework we would like you to use the photo as a stimulus to write an opening to a story. Please see the instruction sheet for more details. Please remember to write the long date and title in your English homework book and use your best handwriting.

 

Spelling

This week we have begun our spelling lessons. You have been given a list of spellings to learn from your teacher. You must learn these thoroughly and write AT LEAST 5 spelling sentences. Remember your spelling books are now pink! You will be tested on Wednesday 20th September.

 

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 Ms Pater

 


 

Year 5

English

Next week in English we are going to look at the screen habits of children today and debate whether they are the “screen generation.” You have a questionnaire about your screen habits to complete. Please answer the questions honestly. You might want to do this with a parent to see what they think about your habits. We will use this information to create some class statistics about ourselves. Please answer neatly as we will stick the questionnaire into your English book.

Maths You must use a good quality HB pencil for Maths homework; no pen please.

Miss Wolfe/Mrs Baker’s set – you have some ordering of numbers work to complete. Please write the answers in your red homework book. Write the date and title, question number and write a single digit in a box. When ordering a list of numbers, leave an empty box between each one (so it does not look like a long list of digits in a secret code!) We want to see neat, careful organisation and presentation of your Maths work.

Title: Ordering Numbers

Mrs White’s set

You have a sheet about place value – some of you are ordering numbers, some are partitioning numbers and some are rounding numbers. Answer neatly on the sheet and then stick the sheet into your red Maths homework book.

Reading

Your Home School Book will be checked for reading every Tuesday. We expect to see at least four entries each week to show you have been reading. We need to see you have read a wide variety of book through the year – no Beast Quest or Wimpy Kid for weeks and weeks. We have talked about this in class. You can read a mixture of fiction and non-fiction. If you are stuck for reading suggestion, come and see us – we have some good reading lists.

Spellings

Everyone has some ough words to learn. The test will be on Wednesday 20th September. You will receive a set of spellings to learn roughly every two weeks.


 

Year 6

Maths

This week we have looked at rounding a variety of numbers. You need to complete the sheet given in your lesson, make sure you complete your work neatly in your maths book. Don’t forget to date and title your work.

LC- Can I round numbers accurately?

 

English

This week we would like you to speak to an adult at home to get some details about yourself. Next week you are going to be writing an autobiography so will need to know loads of things! You might like to ask where and when you were born (as in the EXACT time), which hospital you were born in (if you were even born in a hospital?) how much you weighed, where your first house was (if it is different to now), and any other specific details you know so that you can come prepared next week for your lesson. You should remember to present your work beautifully and ensure you do a date and title.

LC; Can I record information in detail about myself?

 

Reading

Remember you must be reading AT LEAST 4 times a week, and recording this in your Home School Book. You must also be writing comments and getting an adult to sign your book to show they have seen what you have entered for your reading.

 

Spellings

Continue with your statutory spelling list that Year 6 children must learn. We are expecting a sentence for EACH spelling to prove you know how to use the word.
