Homework 10.10.19

Year 3 

Due in on Tuesday 15th October

English

Title: Can I write a diary entry?

This week we have been learning how to use conjunctions, such as ‘but’, ‘because’, ‘so’ to join sentences together. We have also written a diary entry based on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Your homework this week is to apply everything that you have learnt to write a diary entry about something that you have done this week. Choose your favourite day and, in chronological order, write about what you did and how you felt. Please focus on including some of the conjunctions that we have been using this week to extend your sentences.

Remember to begin your homework with an underlined date and title.

 

Reading

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 to check this and award house points. You may even become ‘Reader of the Week’.

 

Times Tables

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

 

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

Year 4

Maths

In maths this week we have been working on factors and common multiples. We have given the children sheets to stick in their books to consolidate the what we have been covering. One thing to note is the question on Prime Numbers. Whilst we have mentioned them they are less familiar with these. A Prime Number is a number whose factors are 1 and itself e.g 13 is a prime number and has only 1 and 13 as it’s factors. 

This homework is due in on Tuesday 15th October.

Year 5

This week we have been working with shape. We have sorted 2D shapes and looked at the properties of 3D shape. We have counted faces, edges and vertices. For your homework we want you to construct two 3D shapes.

 

  1. The first shape you have to put together is one we have given you – it will fold together to make either an animal or an everyday object like a can of food, a cereal box, a packing box or a tent!
  2. The second shape we want you to make yourself. You will need to use the yellow card provided to draw a net and then fold and glue it together. We want you to make the shape of an everyday object of your choice. Look around your house – which objects would be easy to draw the net and construct – the TV, the microwave, a tube of sweets, a soup can? Carefully draw the net with a ruler. Remember to add tabs for sticking faces together. Colour and draw to make the object look realistic. Glue together!

 

 

Please put your initials or name on both of your shapes.

 

Remember we have a spelling test on suffixes on Wednesday 16th October.

 


Year 6

Homework due in: Thursday 24th October

English

For the next two weeks you are being set a project. In English we have been using the book Street Child as a stimulus for our English. As part of this topic we would like you to investigate a local workhouse that was functioning during the Victorian period. They were everywhere at this time but these buildings are now being used for different purposes. Find out as much as you can about them. For example: a timetable of what their day was like, what they ate each day, what they wore, were families separated or kept together? Did families ever get to leave or did they spend their whole lives in there? What kind of jobs did they have to do? Etc. You are encouraged to present this in any way you would like… PowerPoint, written on the computer, or using paper and pen. Please include pictures and lots of information, ensuring you present your work beautifully. As you are doing this for two weeks it should be an ‘extra special’ piece of work.

Times Tables

Continue to practise your times tables ready for Cracking Times Tables on Wednesdays

Reading

Remember to read at least 4 times a week and make a comment on your books.

Spelling

On Thursday, we will be testing you on the 9 words from the Year 5 / 6 spelling list. Please practice the spellings that have been stuck into your Home School Book.
