Maths

Title: Can I convert units of measure

 

Miss Weston’s Maths Set

This week your challenge is to measure different objects around the house and to convert them into either cm and mm (Task One) or cm, mm and m (Task Two). Remember to convert cm to mm you multiply cm by 10, to convert mm to cm you divide by 10. To convert from m to cm,, you multiply by 100 and to convert from cm to m you need to divide by 100.

 

Times Tables

Make sure you are learning your times tables every day. It is very evident in class who has been learning them. You could play ‘Hit the Button’ to motivate you to learn them in a fun and interactive way!

 

English

Title: Can I use commas in lists?

You have been given a sheet with some sentences on them that require commas. Read the sentence carefully; copy the sentence neatly into your book putting the commas in the correct place. Please use a pencil and don’t forget an underlined date and title.

 

 

Reading

We are continuing to check Home School Books every Monday. Remember you need at least four readings each week with an adult signature. If you record more than four readings then the amount of house points that you could get increases too!

Title – Can I think of reasons for and against an argument?

This week, we have begun to debate whether zoos should exist or not. Using what you have learnt this week, we would like you to think of reasons for and against dolphins being kept in captivity.

Cherries and Grapes – We would like you to think of 4 reasons for, and 4 reasons against keeping dolphins in captivity. Complete the table with these reasons and glue it into your book.

Oranges, Pears, Strawberries and Watermelons – We would like you to think of 5 reasons for, and 5 reasons against keeping dolphins in captivity. Complete the table with these reasons. Then your additional challenge is to think about the problems which may occur if all dolphins in captivity were to be released into the wild at the same time. Record your ideas in the box and then glue the whole sheet into your homework book.

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!

Year 5 

English

This week we have looked at glossaries. We have seen how they are organised and how they help us understand the meaning of words. For homework we want you to create your own glossary based on a theme or subject you are interested in. You could create a glossary about Space, Football, Fashion, Food – anything in which you are an expert! Your glossary needs to have between 6 to 10 words, the words need to be in alphabetical order and each word needs a clear and precise definition which is written by you in your own words. (You could use a dictionary to help you check the definition of the words you choose.)

 

Maths

Miss Wolfe’s Maths set

We have been working with Roman Numerals. For your homework there are three challenges. You need to do one of the challenges.

Challenge 1 – You have a sheet with dates and years of events in History, amounts of measures and distances. You have to find out these years or amounts and then convert them to Roman numerals.

Challenge 2 – You need to research your family tree. We would like you to set out your family tree showing at least three generations. Then for everyone who is shown on the family tree you need to write the year of their birth in Roman numerals.

Challenge 3 – Can you create a family tree of the English Royal Family and show the years of births and deaths in Roman numerals for each person on the tree? Include at least three generations.

 

Miss White’s Maths set

You all have work to complete on negative numbers. There are three different sheets – you have been given one to do. You have to read scales with negative numbers and find differences between numbers. You may need to find the amount of increase and decrease between numbers.

 

Spellings

You all have spellings of words with prefixes. The test will be on Wednesday 25th April.

 

Reading

The expectation is that you have at least 4 sessions of reading recorded each week in your Home School Book. This is checked every Tuesday. We want you to be attempting some classic fiction if possible. Well done to those of you who did this over Easter – it really helped your work this week.

 

Reminder – the school is now running lunchtime sessions for those who do not hand in homework, read or learn spellings on time! Be organised with all your homework and your lunchtime is yours!
