Year 5

English Homework: due on Tuesday 24th September

Can I create a new Greek God?

This week’s homework is a chance for you to use your imagination.  We have thoroughly enjoyed the start of our work on Ancient Greeks and their Gods. So…..

Zeus has decided that Olympus feels a little empty, so he’s recruited some new gods. However, due to an error, you have been chosen as a new member of Mount Olympus. What are you the god of, and what are your first three godly acts?  Why have you chosen to do these three things?

You might choose something like…

God of getting that extra sleep you need. Your first act might be to create a time-freezing machine for those who didn’t sleep enough in the morning so they can get all they need to.  You might become the God of Silence. Imagine shutting the noise out in your life: babies crying, siblings fighting, creaking floorboards. Just pure silence. Or you might become God of Lemon Scented Cleaning Supplies and start a war with the God of Pine Scented Cleaning Supplies.

Please write your reply to these questions in your English homework book.  Please make sure you work neatly, using pen and write a date and title in your books.  We can’t wait to read them!


Year 6

Homework due in Tuesday 26th September

Maths

This week you need to complete the maths sheet that was given to you. PLEASE  do not do it on the sheet, but answer in your maths homework books.

Your title is …

Can I divide and multiply by 10, 100 and 1000?

Do not forget that your Cracking Times Tables are tested every Wednesday and you are expected to improve each week. Make sure you practise!

English

After assessment week we are going to be writing character descriptions in class. We would like you to think of a favourite book character and create a bank of words to describe them. Please make sure you spend at least 30 minutes on this, use a thesaurus if you need to so you get some great adjectives. Remember how we are trying to develop your language and vocabulary! Think about their personality, appearance, what they wear and how they are with other characters in the story. If a great sentence comes to mind then write it down too!

Your title is …

Can I write an accurate character description?

Keep practising your spellings ready for Monday’s test and make sure you have done all of your sentences

Reading

Remember to read each night and make sure you record your reading at least 4 times each week. An adult MUST sign your Home School Book for you. Home School Books are checked every Monday morning.
