Due in on Tuesday 26th June

 

Year 3

Recently, we worked hard on creating informal and formal letters. Our homework this week will put that into practice!

 

For your homework, we would like to you (as a Year 3 pupil at Manor Farm Junior School) to write a letter to the Year 2 children that will be coming up to our school in September. It would be a letter to tell them about our school and to help to calm any worries or nerves that they may have. It is transition day on 3rd July, so it would be lovely to make the Year 2’s feel welcome and to give them a letter from you to take with them.

 

In the letter you could include information about yourself, the school and anything that you feel may help the Year 2’s feel less nervous about changing schools. You were in the same position last year, so you know how they are feeling!

 

To make it more personalised for the Year 2’s, just write ‘Dear_____________’ and we can add the name of the Year 2 child when we are at school together next week.

 

You have been provided with a letter template, so write straight onto it in your neatest handwriting.

 

 

Times Tables

Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We will be doing Cracking Times Tables on Monday! It is vital that you keep practising and improving on your scores.

 

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. Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book.. Remember you could be reader of the week!

 

Have a lovely weekend J

Year 5

As we have been busy this week with assessments we have not set you any formal homework. If you want to, you could practise reading a timetable – find a bus, train or TV timetable and see if you can work out durations of journeys and programmes using start and end times. Could you use a bus or train timetable to plan a route somewhere?

 

On Monday we have a whole school Maths Day. Year 5 are going to focus on shape and space. We are going to create some geometric patterns – if you have a pack of felt tip pens bring them in. We also need selotape or masking tape if you have any spare. Thank you.


 

Year 6

English-  Can you write a synopsis of our production to encourage people to come and watch it?  Think about vocabulary, sentence openers and punctuation.  Also, don’t forget to mention your favourite character!

 

Maths –  Just a quick challenge as we want you to be looking for things for the production.  Ranger Rolf Maths problem – Can you arrange the animal enclosures? Make sure you listen in class as we show you the colours on the key.

 

Reading/Times Tables

Please continue to read as often as you can. Make sure you are also learning your times tables.  Remember to have a parent signature.
