Maths

Title: Can I measure length using cm and mm?

Miss Weston’s Group – Your task this week is to measure the lines that have been given to you and write the answer to the nearest mm. Read the instructions on the sheet for more information. You must include a date and title and glue the sheet in neatly.

Mrs Pilgrim/Mrs Jones’ Group – Your task this week is to practise drawing beautifully, straight lines with a ruler using the measurements that we have given you. We expect excellent presentation! Please follow the instructions on your sheet. All work this week is to be completed in your homework books.

 

Times Tables

Make sure you are also learning your times tables. We do Cracking Times Tables every Monday.

 

English

Title: Can I write a paragraph?

This week we have really been focusing on how to put a paragraph together – we have learnt that you need a topic sentence and then 3 facts to support it.

This week for homework we would like you to write paragraphs about yourself which would go in a non-chronological report about you. Cherries and grapes, you are going to write about your diet. Oranges, pears, strawberries and watermelons you are going to write two paragraphs – one about your diet and one about your appearance.

In your paragraph you must extend your sentences to make them more detailed and interesting to read. You can do this by using conjunctions such as so, and, but, because. A short sentence such as ‘I eat fruit’ is not detailed enough. You will need to extend this to make it longer.

 

Please look at our example below to help you:

 

Diet

Sally eats a whole variety of things. Most of all, she likes to eat mango and pineapple because they are sweet. She also enjoys spaghetti bolognese which is her favourite dinner to have during the week. At the weekends, she often has dinner with her mum, dad, sister and brother.

 

Please make sure you write in your best handwriting, put a date and a title and underline both with a ruler. We will be looking for the most interesting and detailed paragraphs, and also for children who can write sentences with full stops and capital letters in the write places.

 

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.’

Miss Bartropp’s Maths Set

Triangles, Squares, Pentagons and DiamondsYou must write the animal which belongs at each set of coordinates, and then write the coordinates of the other animals given. Your final challenge is to draw your own zoo animals at the coordinates given. You may work on the sheet and then glue it beautifully into your book.

Ms Pater’s Maths Set

Title – Can I describe movements as translations?

You have been given a sheet called Traffic Trouble! You must locate the ambulance and write the starting coordinates of it. You must then work out the shortest route through the town to reach the doctor and record your translations (movements). You can draw your route neatly with a ruler – making sure you only travel up, down, left and right. You must then record the coordinates of your finishing position at the doctor. You may work on the sheet, providing that you glue it beautifully into your Maths homework book.

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

 

English

Title – Can I use subordinate clauses?

This week we have learnt about how we can add subordinate clauses to the middle of our sentences to add information. We know that when these subordinate clauses are removed, the sentence still makes sense on its own. Your homework sheet explains this in more detail.

Cherries and Grapes – You must copy out the sentences into your books, choosing the correct subordinate clause to fill in the missing gap. You must underline your subordinate clause in a coloured pencil.

Oranges and Pears – You must copy out the sentences into your books and write your own subordinate clause to fill in the missing gap. There are some examples to help you. You must underline your subordinate clause in a coloured pencil.

Strawberries and Watermelons – You must write your own sentences with subordinate clauses, using the topics given to you on the sheet. There are some examples to help you. You must underline your subordinate clause in a coloured pencil.

You must make sure you have put the long date and title in your book and you must use your best handwriting!

 

Reading

As usual, we expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book over the holiday. We will be collecting Home School Books in on Monday.

 

Have a lovely weekend,

  • Colour your drawing in
