English

Can I recite text using actions and picture clues?

For your English homework this week, we would like you to practise reciting our model text using the actions and picture clues shown to you in class.

We have provided you with the text map and model text to help you practise. 

Why not try performing it to your family? This will help to build confidence and fluency.

Year 5

 

This week Year 5 have been busy with our new Talk For Writing unit on Discussion Texts. We have talked about all different topics which would make a good theme for a discussion text and explored the language and structure of writing a successful one. 

 We are now going to write several of our own discussion texts. One of these will be based on “Does the Loch Ness monster exist?” 

For homework we want you to explore and research the topic of the Loch Ness Monster! Can you find out what is is, where it is and what it may look like? Can you find out what are the arguments which prove it exists and what are the arguments which prove it does not exist? Can you find out when it was seen and who has seen it?

We want you to write your findings in neat and clear sentences in you homework books. You should aim for around 8 pieces of information. You will need this to help you in your work in lessons. Hand in by Tuesday 3rd December.

 


Year 6

 

For homework this week, we would like you to practice how to apostrophes for contractions and possession. Please complete these in your books with a date and title.

Continue to practise your times tables and remember to complete your Home School Book with an appropriate amount of reading. 

Finally, remember to practice your part for the Christmas play and continue to practise the songs in preparation for the play.
