Title: Can I divide?

This week we have been learning how to divide. For homework this week, we would like you to continue your practise of division. You have been given a task sheet with the questions for you to answer in your book. Please copy the questions you’re your book and write the answer. Do not write on the sheet. Remember to include an underlined date and title.

Mrs Pilgrim and Mrs Jones’ set may do it on the sheet and stick it in their book.

 

Times Tables

Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We do Cracking Times Tables every Monday. You may also want to play on ‘Hit the Button’ to practise your tables.

 

English

Title: Can I identify common antonyms?

For homework, we would like you to practise finding antonymns for different words. Remember an antonym is a word that is opposite in meaning to another word. For example, the antonym of old is young, the antonym of big is small. For your homework this week, you must use your reading book to find 10 words to write down in your English homework book. You must think of the antonym of each word and write it alongside it.

For example:

  1. Ancient = Modern
  2. Clumsy = Careful

The words that you choose will show us which children are trying to challenge themselves. If you want to practise more, you could write a sentence for each antonym to show that you know what it means and how to use it.

Remember we will be looking for a date and title, which has been underlined. We will also be checking that the presentation of your work is beautiful and neat.

 

Reading

As usual, we 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. Remember you could be reader of the week!

Title – Can I write a diary entry?

This week in English we have been learning about James and the Giant Peach and reading about how the old man gave him the magic beans. For homework, we would like you to imagine that you have been given a bag of magic beans and you plant them in the garden – except this time they do not grow into a giant peach, they grow into something else! You must use your imagination to decide what the magic beans grow into! They could turn into huge spiders, bouncing balls or magical creatures. You must write two mini diary entries (a paragraph each) about your discovery.

Day 1 – You have planted the beans. Who gave you them? What did they say to you? What do you think is going to happen?

Day 2 – You go out into the garden and discover what has happened. What do your family think? What have the beans turned into? How are you feeling? How have you reacted? What do you think you will do next?

Things to think about

  • Writing in first person.
  • Past tense.
  • Chronological (time) order.
  • Writing emotively – thinking about feelings, reactions and thoughts you had.
  • Time conjunctions such as next, before, while, suddenly.
  • Adverbials to start your sentences such as all of a sudden, full of excitement.

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. We will be collecting Home School Books in on Monday.

 

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Bartropp and Ms Pater


 

Year 5

English

This week we have started to read the classic narrative poem The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. We have read through the poem and discussed its tragic story. It is written in older language and we have spent time learning the meaning of many words. For homework we want you to practise your dictionary skills.

Challenge 1 – use a dictionary to find the meaning of these words which are in the poem: galleon, claret, breeches, doe, rapier, casement, cascade and tawny.

Challenge 2 – find the poem online. Choose 8 words form the poem yourself and then find their dictionary definitions.

Write the words together with their meanings neatly in your homework book.
