Mrs Pilgrim and Mrs Jones’ Set

Title: Can I calculate the perimeter of a shape?

This week we have been working on finding the perimeter of shapes. Please see the sheet you have been given, and follow the instructions carefully. Please ensure you have included a short date and title that has been underlined.

 

Miss Weston’s Maths Set

Title: Can I calculate the perimeter of a shape?

Your homework is to calculate the perimeter of the shapes on your sheet. You must show your workings out in your book and make sure that you line your numbers, including decimals up correctly. For the Giraffes and Elephants group, you must make sure that you convert your measurements into cm first, then find the perimeter by adding all of the sides together. For Q7, you need to make sure you find the missing sides first! Make sure you include a neat date and title which is underlined in pencil. You must work out in your 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.

Title – Can I mind map a range of sounds?

Next week we will be looking at poetry. In preparation for this, we would like you to choose one room in your house. It could be the bedroom, the bathroom, the kitchen, the garden or the living room. Using the pre-prepared sheet provided, we would like you to mind map all the different sounds you may be able to hear in this room and what they are like e.g. the tap dripping slowly in the sink, the moaning, noisy lawnmower in the garden or the kettle whistling and boiling in the kitchen. We will be looking for really descriptive vocabulary to describe your sounds. Please glue your mind-map into your English homework book. We will be checking for a date and title and beautiful presentation and handwriting.

 

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. Remember you could be reader of the week!

Year 4

Maths

Miss Bartropp’s Maths Set

Title: Can I multiply using the formal written method?

This week you are going to be the teacher! You must look at the calculations that Molly has completed. You must complete your own calculation next to it so you can work out whether Molly’s answers are correct or incorrect – you are not allowed to use a calculator! You must mark her work by giving it a tick or cross and give her a mark out of 10 for her calculations. The first one has been done as an example. You may all work on the sheet and glue it into your book.

Stars, Hexagons, Triangles and Squares – You have to mark Molly’s work out of 10. It focuses on a range of times tables from 2-7. You must also write a comment for Molly.

Pentagons and Diamonds – You have to mark Molly’s work out of 10. It focuses on a range of times tables from 2-8. You must also write a comment for Molly.

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 distinguish between homophones?

In your writing, we have noticed a common theme with homophones – many of you are unsure of how to use their, there and they’re so this is what your homework is going to be about this week!

Cherries, Grapes, Oranges and Pears – You must complete the sentences with the correct their, there or they’re. Make sure you understand why each one is used first! You may work on the sheet and glue it beautifully into your book.

Strawberries and Watermelons – You must write 3 sentences to show the correct use of their, 3 sentences to show the correct use of there and 3 more sentences to show the correct use of they’re. Please make sure your sentences are detailed and complex. You must underline the homophones in a coloured pencil.

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!

Year 5

English

You have a sheet to complete on idioms. We have read many different idioms in class and worked out what they mean. On the sheet you need to draw the literal meaning of the idiom – what the words actually say. In the next box you need to draw or write the real meaning of the word. For example, “pull your socks up” actually means to work harder.

 

Maths

Both Maths sets have started work on scaling. We have adjusted the amounts of ingredients needed in recipes by scaling up and down. This is an example we did in class:

This makes about 10 scones:

220g self-raising flour                        

25g caster sugar

50g cheese

60g butter

120ml milk

We scaled the recipe up or down to find the amounts needed for 5, 2, 8 and 15 people.

 

For homework we want you to find a recipe you like and adjust the original amounts to be enough for more or less people. You recipe should have at least six ingredients and you need to scale the recipe up or down in at least 4 different ways so you have adjusted it for 4 different amounts/people. You should show your scaling in a neat and organised chart, like the example below.

 

Ingredients Two

scones

Thirty Fifteen Twelve Eight
Flour          
Sugar          
Cheese          
Butter          
Milk          

 

Spellings

You have a set of word which all have suffixes to learn. Test is on Wednesday 16th May.


 

Year 6

Dear Year 6,

We are really pleased with how much effort you have put into your learning, especially the extra hard work you have been doing with the revision for your SATs next week.

For homework this week, we would like you to try and do as many of the things on the list as possible to prepare yourself for next week:

  • Smile
  • Make someone else laugh so hard that they cry
  • Laugh yourself until you have to scream to stop
  • Go for a walk
  • Have a cuddle with a family member
  • Eat your favourite food
  • Have an early night Sunday
  • Ride your bike/go on your scooter/or your skates
  • Paint/draw a picture
  • Bake/make something yummy in the kitchen
  • Read a book that you enjoy
  • Help someone with a job that they normally do on their own eg. Gardening, cleaning, washing up, cooking
  • Watch your favourite film and sing along to the soundtrack (if it has a good one)
  • Talk about random topics with friends eg. If you were tree which type would you be?
  • Relax and don’t think about school

If you feel like you want to look over some of your revision notes, make sure you don’t spend longer than an hour.  If you don’t know it by now you may just confuse yourself trying to cram it all in.

Tests and exams happen every year in schools and universities.  They don’t test everything about you, it is only a small part of you that is made up of Maths and English.  We already know how great you are, but the Government likes to know how good you are at these few things.  Try as hard as you can and that is all we ask from you.

Enjoy your weekend homework,

The Year 6 Team
