Can I interpret data?
You have been given information that has either been set out in a table, a pictogram or a bar chart. You need to read the data carefully before answering the questions. Please write your answers in your book with a lovely date and title.
Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We do Cracking Times Tables every Monday.
Can I write noun phrases?
You have been given a sheet with either missing words or simple sentences. You must use adjectives to create noun phrases to make the sentences more interesting to read. You need to copy the sentence into your book using your best handwriting. Please include a date and title.
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.

Title: Can I convert between analogue and digital time?
This week we have been practising how to read and write the time on an analogue clock. We have also learnt how to convert between analogue and digital time, both in 12 and 24 hours. Based on how you have got on this week, you have been given a sheet which asks you to write the time shown on the clock in DIGITAL time.
Sheet 1 – Relates to digital time with o’clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to. E.g. If the clock is showing quarter past 9 in the evening, the digital time would be 21:15. If the clock is showing quarter past 9 in the morning, the time would be 09:15.
Sheet 2 – Relates to digital time to the nearest minute. E.g. If the clock is showing 23 minutes past 6 in the evening, the digital time would be 18:23. If the clock is showing 23 minutes past 6 in the morning, the digital time would by 06:23.
It is important you look at whether they are asking you to write it in pm or am as this will alter your numbers!
All of you must make sure you have the short date and title in your homework book, underlined beautifully with a ruler. YOU MAY WORK ON THE SHEET.

This week we have been practising how to read and write the time on an analogue clock. We have also learnt how to convert between analogue and digital time, both in 12 and 24 hours. We discussed and converted units of time in years, months, weeks, minutes and seconds.
We also re-visited the Roman Numerals, as they often can be found on the face of a clock.
We have asked your parents to tell us more about your understanding of time and we’ve been very pleased with their responses.
This week we are sending home Reasoning Test, that will check your understanding of time, after we worked on this unit.
We will then ask your parents to check your answers (using the answer sheet provided), to give them a better idea of your understanding of time. Please bring the marked tests to school.
All of you must make sure you have the short date and title in your homework book, underlined beautifully with a ruler.
Title – Can I use the correct homophone?
Following your writing assessments, we have noticed that there are still lots of you using the incorrect homophones in your writing! For homework, you have been given a list of near homophones. You must put each in a sentence to show that you know how to use them correctly, and then apply this in your English work from now on! You must make your sentences exciting and then underline your homophone in a coloured pencil. If you want a real challenge you could try and use them in the same sentence! This would really show you have an excellent understanding of the homophones!
All of you must make sure you have the short date and title in your homework book, underlined beautifully with a ruler. You must use your BEST handwriting!
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 great weekend!

In 5A we have been comparing the Ancient and Modern Olympics Games. We have looked at the events, ceremonies and sports in the games and how these have changed over time. We have also looked at the sports currently happening in the Pyeong Chang games in South Korea. 5B – you will study the Olympics next week in History lessons.
For homework this week we want you to research an element of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeong Chang. We want you to find out about a particular sport or about a particular athlete or competitor. You could choose to find out about all the snowboarding or skiing events or the different ice skating competitions. Or you could find out more about gold medal winner Lizzy Yarnold and the skeleton event. Or the snowboard champion, Red Gerard. If you like, you could research the traditions of the opening ceremony and the significance of the Olympic rings.
Present your facts on a piece of A4 paper. You can use a computer and include photos and pictures. Make your work colourful and attractive. We want to display this homework in school.
We are going to be trying some Greek foods and design a menu. We will be given the opportunity to try olives, pitta bread, feta cheese, tzatziki, taramasalata, yoghurt, figs, honey, red onion and salad foods. If you are allergic to any of these, please can your parent let us know by Monday 26th February.

We have been adding and subtracting fractions. This is challenging and you have homework to practise the skill of finding a common denominator before you add or subtract the fractions.
Some of you have a code to crack where you are adding proper fractions, mixed number s and whole numbers. You can answer on the sheet and stick it into your book. You will need to do some working out – this can be done in your book.
Some of you have + and – of proper fractions. Please write the sum out, include the stage where you find the common denominator and then write your answer. Remember to simplify the answer if necessary.
You have some practice on adding and subtracting fractions. Remember if the denominators are different you need to find a common denominator before you add or subtract. Some of you have questions where the common denominator is given to you and some of you have to work this out. Write the sum, your working out and the answer neatly in your Maths book.
Grammar – Pages 16, 17, 18, 19 – Mixed Practise
Geometry, Measures and Statistics – Pages 6,7,8,12, 13 – Angles and Coordinates
Arithmetic – pages 12,13,14
Please continue to read as often as you can. Make sure you are also learning your times tables.
Continue to practice and learn your spellings. Ensure the spelling sentences are written in your books ready for Monday.
