Year 3


Title: Can I solve word problems?

For your maths homework this week, we would like you to attempt all the word problems on the sheet that has been given to you.


You should remember to write a beautifully neat date and title in your maths homework book, and underline them with a ruler.


Please complete your homework in your book, and please use a pencil.


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.

Year 4


Title – Can I write a Kenning?


A Kenning is a form of descriptive poem.

Write a Kenning about school/ things you would find in school e.g a pencil, computer, exercise book, playground, reading book, a dictionary… It must be a minimum of 6 lines long.


  • Body – bone-house
  • Sword – battle-light
  • Ship – wave-floater
  • Sea – whale-road

Things to think about

  • Start every line with A
  • Each phrase is a description- without saying what it is.


You must make sure you have put the long date and title in your book and 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 lovely weekend,

Mrs Wendes, Mrs Pilgrim and Mrs Pater


Year 5

Science Homework – Thursday 17th January due Thursday 24th January


We have spent time looking at planning, creating the box for your Space Diorama.  For homework this week we would like you to be creative and create the Space objects that you want in your diorama.  Please don’t go and buy things – recycled objects can be perfect. Planets can be made from baubles, foil or plasticine.  Moons could be made from polystyrene, golf balls or table tennis balls. If you wanted to create rockets or satellites, could these be made from lego, a small bottle or kitchen roll tube?  


You need to make sure that your items are small enough to fit inside your box and you need to think about how you will attach them to your box.  Will they be hung from string, held up by straws, stuck using sellotape or glue to the back of your box?


Please bring your objects to school on Thursday 24th January, where we will put your objects inside your box.


Year 6


This week we have been finding the area and perimeter of compound shapes. Please do the sheet given to you in your maths homework book.  


Your test in on the next statutory list. Please ensure you know them for your test on Friday.


Please remember to record your reading at least four times this week.

Cracking Times Tables

We are really pleased by your scores lately as they are all going up! Please keep working hard on them and try to get your next level.
