Due in on Tuesday 20th November


Year 3


As part of our work on non-chronological reports, we would like you to research an animal from the Stone Age. Please choose from either a Woolly Mammoth, Sabre-Tooth Tiger, Woolly Rhinoceros or Giant Beaver. Collect as many notes as you can for our lessons. Remember not to copy information straight from the Internet; make notes on what you find out. You will need to know about:

  • the animals habitat (where it likes to live)
  • diet (what it eats)
  • its appearance (what it looks like).

If you want to find out any extra information, for example its life span or behaviour, then you are welcome to bring in this information too. Record your notes on paper and bring it to school. We expect you present your research neatly and use rulers for underlining your main heading, sub-headings or for any labelling.



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.


Times Tables

Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We do Cracking Times Tables every Monday.


If you ever have any trouble completing your homework please come and speak to us.


Mrs Jones and Ms Roome


Year 4


Mrs Wendes’ Maths Set

Can I find lines of symmetry?

You must complete the symmetrical patterns, and then find and draw objects from home, that have symmetry.

Please have a go at the challenge.

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


Mrs Pilgrim and Ms Pater’s Maths Set

Please add symmetry to the shapes on your sheet using a ruler and identify the angles.

Some of you have a shape word crossword to complete instead.

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


No Spellings this week.



As usual, we expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your Home School Book over the holiday. We will be collecting Home School Books in on Monday.



Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Wendes, Mrs Pilgrim and Ms Pater


Year 5

Next week we are going to start work in English on persuasive writing. The first issue we are going to look at is homework! We are going to sort the advantages and disadvantages of having homework and look at different people’s opinions about homework.

So this week you are going to ask your family members what they think of homework – ask your parents and your siblings. You need to write down in your blue English homework book who you have asked, the questions you asked them and what their replies and opinions were. You will need to have this homework ready for Tuesday’s English lesson because we will use it as part of our work.

Reading – at least four reading entries a week please in your Home School Book and a variety of books should have been read this term

Auditions – you have an extract form the Christmas play. Practice delivering some lines ready for auditions next week.

Xmas Fayre Programme Cover Competition (optional)

The local Co-op are judging the school’s competition to design a cover for the Christmas Fayre. Prizes will be awarded for the best in each year group and the overall winner.

You have two choices which you can collect from the Cop-op:

Colour a Xmas template

Or draw an A4 picture on the theme of “What Christmas Means To Me”

Your entries should be handed in to the Co-op.


Year 6 


Please complete the sheet you have been given on interpreting line graphs.


Times Tables

Keep practising ready for cracking times tables.



Please ensure you are reading as often as possible (and something that challenges you) and recording it in your Home School Book.
