Title: Can I describe a scene from a fantasy story?
We have been learning about a fantasy story in which a girl goes into a washing machine and ends up in a fantasy world underwater, deep in the sea! For homework, we would like you to have a go at writing some descriptive sentences about the picture you have been given. We would like you to write at least 6 sentences. Try to use exciting adjectives, and even challenge yourself to use a simile or some alliteration.
We will be looking for an underlined date and title, and that the presentation of your work is beautiful and neat.
Times Tables and Reading
Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We do Cracking Times Tables every Monday.
Remember 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. Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book.
Mrs Jones and Ms Roome
This week there is a worksheet of division word problems, following on from the work we have done this week in class.
Spellings will be issued next week.
Make sure you have the short date and title in your homework book, underlined with a ruler.
We have three tasks for you to complete. Two need to be done by next week and one will take a whole month!
- LC: Can I find collective nouns?
We have been working on nouns. We have looked at different types of nouns like proper nouns and abstract nouns. We want you to focus on collective nouns – these are a noun which refers to a collection or group of things. Examples are a herd of cows, a flock of sheep or a swarm of bees.
If you have a sheet you need to write the missing words in the gaps – you might need to do some research first. Stick the sheet in your English homework book.
If you do not have a sheet, you need to write 10 or more of your own choice of collective nouns in your English homework book.
- We have started to read some poetry. We have read two poems by Edward Lear – The Owl And The Pussy Cat and The Jumblies. We would like you to find another poem by Edward Lear and read it. Can you write down the name of the poem and your opinion of it in your Home School Book please?
- We have given you a Moon Diary sheet. As part of our work on Space we would like you to record the shape of the moon for the next month. You have a sheet to record this on. You should hopefully see the moon pass through all of its different phases. Please use pencil to draw in the shape of the moon each night.
Complete the phrases and clauses work. Stick the sheets into your English homework book.
Please continue to read as often as you can. Make sure you are also learning your times tables.
Continue to practice and learn your spellings.
