Title – Can I use connective devices extend my sentences?

This week we have been learning about how to use connective devices (such as openers and conjunctions) to extend our ideas for letter writing. You have been given a word mat of connective devices that can be used in letter writing. We would like you to imagine that you are persuading the council to put new play equipment at the local park and use some of the connective devices to write sentences to persuade them. You are NOT writing the whole letter, just detailed sentences. You must choose 6 and write 6 detailed sentences including these conjunctions. You must underline the connective device you have chosen to use.

For example

  1. Many people believe that children benefit from different pieces of equipment at the park because it allows them to use their muscles.
  2. It is important for children to get lots of exercise therefore putting new equipment in will encourage them to do this.
  3. New equipment needs to be put at the park because the current play equipment is rusty and dangerous.

You must spend 20 minutes on this piece of homework – the amount you write will confirm how long you have spent on this because we know what you are capable of achieving in class.

Please use your best handwriting and remember to include the long date and title. Please underline both.  

 

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,

Miss Weston, Mrs Jones and Mrs Pilgrim

Title – Can I infer and use my imagination?

This week, we have been looking at the book ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ and discussing why each crayon has quit and gone on strike! We have done this by using our inference skills. This week we would like you to imagine that your household items in your house are also going on strike because they have had enough!

Cherries and Grapes – You must complete the table, discussing how each household item is feeling and why they are feeling this way. You may work on the sheet and glue it into your book.

Oranges and Pears – You must complete the 3 items given to you, and then think of 3 of your own. You need to decide how these household items are feeling and why they are feeling this way. You may work on the sheet and glue it into your book.

Strawberries and Watermelons – Choose 6 of your own items around the house and decide how they are feeling and why they are quitting! You may work on the sheet and glue it into your book.

For example: You may decide that the hoover is feeling claustrophobic because it has been shoved in the cupboard. They may also feel unwell because the hoover bag is creating lots of dust! The lights may feel hot and bothered because they have been left on for hours, even when you have left the house!

Try and make us laugh by being humorous with your entries!

All of you must make sure you have the long 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!

Year 5 

English

This week we have all started to read a book by the American author, Louis Sachar. For your homework we want you to find out about this author. We want you to find out information such as; his age and date of birth, his career, other books he has written and what inspired him to become a children’s writer. You can decide how you present the information you have found out – you could create a fact file, write Questions and Answers or pretend you have interviewed him. Whichever way you present your findings, your homework should be neat and organised – this is a best piece of work so it should not look like rough notes. You could use a computer to publish your findings. Please do not just copy out information from the internet – what you write should be explained in your own words.

Maths

We have all been working on data handling. You all have homework linked to interpreting graphs.

Miss White  and Miss Wolfe/Mrs Baker sets – some of you have a sheet where you have to complete a table of information and then turn this into a bar graph using the provided grid. Some of you have graphs to interpret about school football teams, attendance at school, favourite sports and exam marks! Remember to read the questions very carefully so you know what you need to find out from the graph. You may answer on the sheet and stick it into your book.

Mrs Prior set

You have a cut and stick activity. You have to look at the table and match it to the correct graph. Then you need to add the right title, labels for the axes and summary of what the graph shows. If you can, try to work out the correlation part too – this means is there a pattern between the two factors on each axis Eg the more rain there is, the more the sunflower will grow would be a positive correlation.

Remember we are looking at pizza toppings next week and eating some. Let us know about any food allergies please.


 

Year 6

English-  Descriptive writing of your favourite meal (on separate A4 paper).  Think carefully about your targets and handwriting.
