Title: Can I describe an underwater scene?

We have been learning about a fantasy story about a girl who goes into a washing machine and ends up in a fantasy world underwater, deep in the sea! For homework, we would like you to use the internet to find a picture of an underwater scene, with tropical fish, coral reefs and maybe even an octopus or shark! We would like you to write different 10 sentences to describe what is happening in the picture. Try to use exciting adjectives, and you may even remember to use a simile.

We will be looking for an underlined date and title. We will also be checking that the presentation of your work is beautiful and neat.

 

Both Set – Maths

Title: Can I multiply?

This week’s Maths homework is to practise using the grid method that we have been using this week to multiply. You have been given multiplication questions with the grid method prepared for you. There are some questions where the partitioning of the two or three digit number has been done for you, but there are some that need you to partition the numbers yourself. Take care when multiplying – make sure that you are not forgetting the ‘0’. An example has been done for you on your sheet. Use a pencil to write your date and title and use your best presentation!

 

Times Tables & 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.

Title: Can I round decimals to the nearest whole number?

You have been given a sheet with three different tasks on about rounding decimals. You must choose the one you feel most confident with. You must look at the tenths digit (the number after the decimal point) and decide whether you need to round the number up or down. Remember the rule – 5 to the sky, 4 to the floor! You must copy the decimals into your book. You are not allowed to work on the sheet.

All of you must make sure you have the short date and title in your homework book, underlined beautifully with a ruler.

Title – Can I plan a character description?

This week in English we have been learning about James and the Giant Peach and writing character descriptions about one of the aunties – Aunt Spiker or Aunt Sponge. For homework, we would like you to PLAN a character description for the aunt that you did NOT write about in class. Remember, when you are planning you think of key words and phrases that you can include in your description. We have asked you to think about 3 different elements – similes (e.g. her hair is black as coal), noun phrases (e.g. her long, luscious hair) and adjectives (e.g. petite).

Cherries and Grapes – You have been given a planning sheet with Aunt Sponge on. You must look at the different appearance features of her and write key words underneath each box.

Oranges and Pears – You have been given a planning template with either Aunt Sponge or Spiker, depending on which one you wrote about in class. You must use the prompts to write about the appearance AND personality of the aunt.

Strawberries and Watermelons – You have been given a blank planning template with either Aunt Sponge or Spiker in the middle, depending on which one you wrote about in class. You must use the page to plan your character description – thinking about appearance AND personality.

You must make sure you have put the long date and title in your book and you must use your best handwriting!

 

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.

Year 5

This week we have been reading some classic narrative poetry.  We have read some fun poems by Edward Lear. For homework we want you to find and read some other narrative poems – remember these are poems which tell a story. We want you to read a good example of a narrative poem and see if you can work out what is happening in the story of the poem. Share the poem with someone else in your family too.

You need to write the name of the poem and the poet in your Home School Book and write a short paragraph of what happened in the story of the poem. A parent needs to sign below that you have completed this.

LC Can I convert measurements of weight?

 

We have been working on measures.

Miss Wolfe/Miss Stanbridge set

We have predicted and weighed the weight of different food items. For your homework we want you to convert between kilograms and grams. Remember there are 1000g in a kilogram so to convert between the two you need to x or divide by 1000. Be careful when you need to use decimals. You have been given a set of conversion questions. Answer in your red Maths homework book.

Mrs White’s set

Some of you have a matching sheet to colour. You need to work and colour the matching pair of weights. For example, 1.5kg is the same as 1500g so colour this pair the same colour, Choose different colours for different pairs. Some of you have a sheet where you have to convert the weight into either grams or kilograms.
