LC Can I write a diary entry?
This week we have been learning how to use conjunctions, such as ‘but’, ‘because’, ‘so’ to join sentences together. We have also written a diary entry based on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Your homework this week is to apply everything that you have learnt to write a diary entry about something that you have done this week. Choose your favourite day and, in chronological order, write about what you did and how you felt. You must include some of the conjunctions that we have been using this week to extend your sentences and remember your excellent punctuation too. Remember to use a pencil and to include an underlined date and title.
Remember we also expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book. We will collect home school books in every Monday to check this and award house points. You may even become ‘Reader of the Week’.
Please make sure you are also learning your times tables. We do Cracking Times Tables every Monday and so you should be learning your times tables to improve your score and achieve your level. .
If you ever have any trouble completing your homework please come and speak to us.

For the past four weeks in English we have been looking at Myths that include Greek Gods. We have also had a whole History lesson based around the Gods and Goddesses and their roles in Ancient Greek history. Some of the Gods that we have looked at include Zeus, Hades, Apollo, Poseidon, Athene, Hera and Aphrodite.
For homework we would like you to choose a Greek God or Goddess and to create a fact file about them.
You could include:
A picture (draw this yourself and colour it in).
Any facts about appearance and personality.
Which stories the Gods may have appeared in.
Any other interesting facts which you can find.
You all have some words with different “shon” endings to learn ready for a test next week.
At least four lots of reading recorded in your Home School Book please. Everyone should be reading something – fiction, poetry, reference books, magazines! Ask us if you are stuck for something to read – we can give you suggestions. Reading makes you cleverer!
Homework due in: Tuesday 30th October
For the next two weeks you are being set a project. In English we have been using the book Street Child as a stimulus for our English. As part of this topic we would like you to investigate a local workhouse that was functioning during the Victorian period. They were everywhere at this time but these buildings are now being used for different purposes. Find out as much as you can about them. For example: a timetable of what their day was like, what they ate each day, what they wore, were families separated or kept together? Did families ever get to leave or did they spend their whole lives in there? What kind of jobs did they have to do? Etc. You are encouraged to present this in any way you would like… PowerPoint, written on the computer, or using paper and pen. Please include pictures and lots of information, ensuring you present your work beautifully. As you are doing this for two weeks it should be an ‘extra special’ piece of work.
