LC Can I write a diary entry?

This week we have been learning how to use conjunctions, such as ‘but’, ‘because’, ‘so’ to join sentences together. We have also written a diary entry based on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Your homework this week is to apply everything that you have learnt to write a diary entry about something that you have done this week. Choose your favourite day and, in chronological order, write about what you did and how you felt. You must include some of the conjunctions that we have been using this week to extend your sentences and remember your excellent punctuation too. Remember to use a pencil and to include an underlined date and title.

 

Reading

Remember we also expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book. We will collect home school books in every Monday to check this and award house points. You may even become ‘Reader of the Week’ and win a prize!

 

If you ever have any trouble completing your homework please come and speak to us.

Miss Bartropp’s Maths Set

Title – Can I add and subtract up to 4 digits?

You have been given a sheet which has three different challenges – bronze, silver and gold. You must choose the challenge by thinking about how confident you have been with adding and subtracting this week in class. You must work through the challenge you choose by writing out your written addition and subtraction using the column method. Remember that you may have to carry when adding or borrow or exchange when subtracting. Please state at the top of your work which challenge you have chosen and ensure you use a ruler to draw any lines needed in your calculation.

All of you must make sure you have the short date and title in your homework book, underlined beautifully with a ruler.

Year 5

English We would like you to design a poster to support HS2 or protest against HS2. This is a great opportunity to use you ICT skills to design a great poster but you are also able to draw and design the poster yourself using great artistic skills. Either way, you need to make the poster bold, bright, colourful and eye catching. You might want to look online at some examples to give you some ideas. Remember to use some persuasive techniques of AFOREST – alliteration, facts, rhetorical questions, repetition, and statistics. We expect a high level of presentation as these posters are going to be displayed.

 

Maths Miss Wolfe’s set – We have been working with 3D shapes. For homework you need to construct your own 3D shape. You need to draw the correct net yourself and then fold and glue it into the 3D shape. You will need to draw the net with precision – using straight, neat edges and the correct angles. Remember to add tabs to secure the edges together. You can keep it simple by constructing a cuboid or challenge yourself with multi-faced shapes like a pentagonal pyramid of a hexagonal prism! (Please do not print a net off the internet and then just fold it together – you must draw your own net.)

You have also been assigned some Mathletics to complete. You have been allocated units on adding and subtracting whole numbers and decimals, converting between numbers and Roman numerals and identifying the nets of 3D shapes. These are all areas of Maths we have covered in the past weeks so you will be revising objectives which you have learnt in class. You can complete these units over the next two weeks.

Mrs White’s set – you have some homework on identifying and naming 2D and 3D shapes. You have been given a sheet. Please answer in your Maths homework book.

 

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!

 

Christmas card designs Next week we are going to design a picture which your family can choose to have turned into a Christmas card. We are looking for the following materials: wrapping paper with patterns on (this can be Christmas wrapping paper or graphic patterned paper) newspaper (smallish print is best) paint colour charts and any silver or gold pens. If you have any of these materials please bring them in ready for Thursday. Thank you!
