Title: Can I measure the perimeter of 2D shapes?

This week we have learnt how to measure the perimeter of 2D shapes. To do this, we measured the lengths of each of the shape and added them together to find the total length around the outside of the shape. This is known as the perimeter.

For homework please complete the sheet given to you . The instructions for this are on there. Please make sure you have got the correct sheet. Remember to put the short date and title in pencil and underline both with a title.

 

Times Tables

Make sure you are also learning your times tables regularly. A short practise every day is better than once on Sunday!. We do Cracking Times Tables every Monday. You may also want to play on Mathletics Live.

 

English

For the next few weeks we will be looking at instruction writing. So that we can compare some instructions, and look at some in class together, we would like you to find ONE example of instruction writing at home to bring in so you can share it with your table. This could be instructions from a cookery book, instructions from a game or instructions for furniture. Please make sure that whichever instruction writing you bring in, you can read and understand it.

 

Christmas

If you have been given a speaking part in the Christmas production, you should be learning your lines at home ready for rehearsals in school.

Please try to bring your costume in as soon as possible. We would like them in by Monday 4th December at the latest.

 

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. Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book. It would be great to see some different children achieving ‘Reader of the Week.’

 

If you ever have any trouble completing your homework please come and speak to us. We keep a log of children who are handing in their homework and Home School Books in late so you must make an effort to hand it in on time.

Year 5

English Homework

We have been working on the correct use of commas. We have been looking at how commas help us punctuate long lists. We have also learnt how a colon can introduce a list and how a semi-colon separates longer extended items in a list.

Examples:

All the children needed to remember their coat, hat, gloves and scarf.

The Christmas Production will include: a short scene from each class in the school; a school choir singing Christmas songs; jokes and laughter and colourful costumes.

For your homework we want you to write five interesting lists. You can make these up yourself or use the ideas below BUT they must be neat, well spelt and with perfect punctuation. If you want a challenge write lists of longer items using the semi-colon to separate each item and create lists using your own ideas.

Suggested ideas:

You Christmas wish list

The contents of your bedroom

Hobbies and activities you enjoy

Favourite foods

The best things about school!

Things you like to do at Christmas

Hopes for the future

LC Can I match equivalent fractions?

We have worked really well on fractions this week. For your homework you have a task to complete using equivalent fractions. Some of you have dominoes – cut out all the domino pieces and then you match the equivalent fractions side by side. They should form a loop. Stick the matched dominoes into your Maths homework book. Other people have a fractions puzzle. Cut all the pieces out and match the sides which are equivalent fractions side by side. If you do all these correctly the jigsaw pieces will make a 2D shape. Stick this completed jigsaw into your Maths homework book – it will cover a double page.

 

Mrs White

LC Can I match equivalent fractions?

You have a sheet of equivalent fractions. You need to colour each pair of equivalent fractions so they are the same shape and size.  Underneath you then need to write each fraction using the correct digits. Stick the sheet neatly into your Maths homework book.

 

REMEMBER: On Monday 4th December you need to bring in your costume for the Christmas production. We will be looking at them and checking everyone is ready with what they need.
