SPAG Practice

This week we have been practising how to use conjunctions, inverted commas and contractions. We would like you to practise using these techniques with your homework this week. You may write on the sheet, but please neatly stick it in your book with a date and title. Please write in pencil.

 

Reading

It is important that you are reading regularly at home to help you to become more confident, both in reading aloud and in your understanding of the story that you are reading. Well done to all of you that are doing this and are recording them regularly in your books. Remember we expect at least 4 readings per week. So after half term we will be looking at 2 weeks-worth of reading, so try to read up to 8 times at least. You could earn 3 house points per week and possibly be the reader of the week if you read each day and record it in your Home School Book.

 

Have a lovely half term break.

Miss Weston, Mrs Pilgrim and Mrs Jones

Title – Can I practice reciprocal reading skills?

Over the last few weeks, we have been taking part in a new reading initiative called reciprocal reading which covers the four steps of predict, clarify, question and summarise which will improve our comprehension. Over half term, we would like you to put this into practice yourself! We would like you to choose a new FICTION book you have never read before and complete the reciprocal reading sheet given to you. It is important you choose a more challenging book so that you are exposed to new vocabulary. Read the prompts carefully to complete each section accurately. You may work on the sheet and glue it beautifully into your English homework book. You have seen the sheet before as we had a go at filling one in during a Guided Reading session last week J.

 

We are expecting a long date and titled to be underlined beautifully with a ruler. You must also 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 half term! Be happy, have fun and stay safe!

 

Miss Bartropp and Ms Pater


 

Year 5

We are setting a couple of tasks for you to do – number 1 must be done and numbers 2 and 3 are optional.

 

1. Science research

To tie in with our work on Materials And Their Properties, we would like you to research the life and work of a scientist or inventor. We want you to choose either a well-known or lesser known scientist or inventor and find out about their life and work. Two examples specified in our Science curriculum are Spencer Silva – who invented glue for sticky notes –  and Ruth Benerito – who invented wrinkle free cotton. But you could choose a famous scientist or inventor such as:

Alexander Fleming

Tim Berners-Lee

James Watt

Thomas Edison

The Wright brothers

Alexander Graham Bell

Albert Einstein

Michael Faraday

Galileo.

Isaac Newton

Louis Pasteur

Leonardo Da Vinci

 

You need to present an interesting and informative piece of work which is well organised and carefully presented. You can use the internet for research but you must write in your own words – please do not just copy from the internet – we can tell this is not your own work. You may use headings and include photos or pictures.

Suggested facts to find out: date and place of birth, family background, schooling and education, what he/she discovered or created and an explanation of why their work was important and changed the way we live today.

 

2. Story Competition

You might like to enter the annual BBC2 competition for children to write a 500 word story. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00rfvk1 – lots of information and details on how to submit your story on this website.

The closing date is very shortly after half term so you would need to submit your story from home.

 

Got a spare moment? Then spend some time revising how to measure angles with a protractor. We have worked on this but many of you fell into the trap of reading the wrong scale in the Maths test! Remember to identify the angle as acute, obtuse or reflex and estimate the size before you measure.
