Miss Wolfe/Mrs Baker You have been set some Mathletics units to do. Some are based on place value – partitioning of numbers, reading and writing numbers and rounding. Some are based on decimals – comparing, ordering and rounding decimals. There are quite a few units to complete so we want you to do 30 -40 minutes this week as your homework this week. Any other units we have allocated can be done when you have spare moments in the next few weeks or sooner if you think you need further practice. Let us know if you have trouble accessing Mathletics and we can arrange for you to do it at school.
Mrs White We have been working on decimals this week. For homework you have a sheet on ordering and sequencing decimals. Please answer on the sheet and stick it carefully into your red Maths homework book.
English 5A and 5B
This week we read an article called “Are today’s kids turning into couch potatoes?” We discussed what a “couch potato” is and carried out surveys to see if we might be couch potatoes. We investigated how many TVs we own, other screens we have at home, how much exercise and sport we do and if we have other hobbies rather than watching TV.
For your homework we want you to work with your family to create “A TV and Screen Contract.” We want you to come up with some acceptable rules for your household which will monitor the use of TVs and other screens to ensure you (and your family) do not become couch potatoes!
Present your rules on a page in your English homework book. Write the title for your contract. You could present the rules in a list or use bullet points. Maybe get your family members to sign it at the bottom. Remember to explain your rules clearly.
Extra info! We are going to be doing some printing in Art over the next few weeks. Bring in a painting shirt or apron if you have one.
This week you need to complete the maths sheet that was given to you. PLEASE do not do it on the sheet, but answer in your maths homework books.
Your title is …
Can I divide and multiply by 10, 100 and 1000?
Do not forget that your Cracking Times Tables are tested every Wednesday and you are expected to improve each week. Make sure you practise!
After assessment week we are going to be writing character descriptions in class. We would like you to think of a favourite book character and create a bank of words to describe them. Please make sure you spend at least 30 minutes on this, use a thesaurus if you need to so you get some great adjectives. Remember how we are trying to develop your language and vocabulary! Think about their personality, appearance, what they wear and how they are with other characters in the story. If a great sentence comes to mind then write it down too!
Your title is …
Can I write an accurate character description?
Keep practising your spellings ready for Monday’s test and make sure you have done all of your sentences.
Remember to read each night and make sure you record your reading at least 4 times each week. An adult MUST sign your Home School Book for you. Home School Books are checked every Monday morning.
