Maths

LC – Do I know my times tables?

This week your homework will be to practise your times tables. You have been given a ‘colouring’ task, where you need to find the correct answer and colour each section in the correct colour according to the key at the bottom of the page. You must colour in carefully and neatly using pencil crayon to reveal a lovely picture! Please glue your sheet into your Maths Homework books using a date and title which is underlined carefully.

 

English

In English this week, your homework is going to be poetry! To celebrate National Poetry Day we would like you to write a poem based on the word Imagine. In class we have been looking at acrostic poems but you can choose to write another style if you wish.

If you are writing the acrostic poem remember to write each letter of the word on a new line. An acrostic poem does not have to rhyme. Think what we looked at in class and write ideas next to each letter. (It was based on the song Imagine by John Lennon- Your parents will probably remember the song!)

Here is a suggestion to start you off.

 

Imagine a world where we all live in peace

M

A

G

I

No more wars or fighting

E

 

As we are going to enter this as a competition, please write your poem on the sheet of paper or you may do it on the computer. You must include your name and age at the end of the poem.

 

You must do any writing in PENCIL. We expect beautiful presentation, just like you have been showing us in class.

 

Remember we also expect you to read at home at least 4 times a week and record this in your Home School Book. 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 trouble completing your homework please come and speak to us.

English – National Poetry Day

Today (Thursday 28th September) is National Poetry Day so we have been doing work on poems and poetry in class. Your homework this week is a competition, inviting you to write a poem inspired by Freedom, the theme of this year’s National Poetry Day. You could be winning a prize once we send your entries off!

What should I be writing about? – How do you imagine freedom? Do you think of love, peace, friendship and understanding? Or flags and banners, a sea-breeze, a bird soaring or a ball flying into the air? Maybe freedom is an absence: freedom from hate, war, hunger or poverty. Or freedom is a positive: freedom to speak, have a home, be equal and to choose.

How should I write it? – You are free to write your poem in any way you want. You may want to make it rhyme, include similes, alliteration and metaphors. Think about different types of poetry such as limericks, rap, haikus or you could try an acrostic poem, in which the first letters in each line spell out the topic FREEDOM. You can visit the National Poetry Day website for more ideas.

What should the title of my poem be? – Freedom

How should I present my work? – Your work needs to be presented on one A4 plain piece of paper, beautifully decorated with a border and illustrations. If you would like to type up your poem, and then decorate it by hand this is also okay.

We are expecting all entries in by Tuesday 3rd October as we will be sending them off to enter the competition. Ensure you are writing with your best, joined handwriting. Presentation is very important. We suggest you bring your homework in a plastic wallet to avoid it getting spoilt on your journey to school.

 

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.


 

Year 5

Englishthis is the whole school poetry writing task based on Freedom. (Please see the description under Year 6 for more information)

Maths – both sets – You have a sheet based on Roman numerals. Some of you have some grids where you have to convert back and forth between our numbers and Roman numerals. Some of you have a sheet where you have to answer questions about dates, ages and lengths of time using Roman numerals. Please answer on the sheet and make sure you write your name on it.

Reading – remember you need to show you are reading a wide range of books and that you have read at least four times in the week. Well done if you have already been Reader of the Week!
