Maths

Miss Weston’s Group

LC: Can I create a 3D shape?

This week we have learnt about 3D shapes, including different types of prisms and pyramids. We have even created some! Your task is to create a one or two of the shapes that we have learnt about. You could use the methods that we have in school, e.g. using plasticine and straws, you could use nets made from paper/card, or even create your shapes using your own creative and interesting method! If you really wanted to challenge yourself you could combine your shapes to make a bigger object, e.g. a house made out of a cuboid and a triangular prism. Please bring he shape(s) that you have made into school on 21st November to share with the rest of our group. It would also be fantastic for you to take a photograph of your shape for your Maths Homework book, along with a date and title.

This week your homework is to colour in the picture using the key to show the different types of words.

Cherries and Grapes – You must find and colour verbs, adjectives and nouns.

Oranges and Pears – You must find and colour verbs, adjectives, nouns and adverbs.

Strawberries and Watermelons – You must find and colour verbs, adjectives, nouns, adverbs, prepositions for place (we learnt about these before half term) and conjunctions.

Year 5

English This week we have been reading legends. For your homework we want you to find out about a famous legend  – King Arthur And The Knights Of The Round Table. We want to see what you can find out about this legend. You can read a short version of the story or try to find some facts about the characters (King Arthur, Lancelot, Guinevere). If you use the internet please do not just copy out the text – read the information and write it in your own words. Parts of the story are on the storynory website under the Educational section. You need to write a short summary of the legend or a list of about 6 to 8 facts which you find out.

Miss Wolfe/ Ms Stanbridge

You have been allocated Mathletics units. You have section on multiples, factors, long multiplication, short division and multiplying/dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 to complete. All these are areas we have recently worked on in class. You need to spend 30 to 40 minutes working on Mathletics.

Mrs White

Some of you have got some homework solving word problems using multiplication. You need to read the questions carefully and work out what you have to do. Show your working out neatly in your homework book and carefully check each calculation.

Some of you have got some multiplication calculations where the digits are missing. You have to work through the stages of the sum to work out what the missing digit should be. Write the answers on the sheet and stick the sheet into your book.

 

Reading

Year 6

English

This week in English we have been looking at writing complaint letters, and the formal language used within them. For homework, we would like you to choose one of the following situations and write a short complaint letter to describe your experience. You can choose either:

  1. A terrible stay at a hotel abroad
  2. Awful service at a restaurant
  3. Bad experience on an aeroplane journey

Remember that complaint letters include: rhetorical questions, exaggeration, formal openers (E.g. firstly, to add insult to injury, to make matters worse), detail and thoughts and feelings. The structure of your letter will include: why you are writing, two paragraphs explaining your reasons for complaining and a final paragraph detailing what you would like as a result of your experience e.g. compensation, a refund. As we would like to display these letters, we would like you to write your letter on best paper. It can be handwritten or typed as long as your presentation is beautiful. Don’t forget to spend 30-40 minutes on this homework.
