English: BOOK TALK
This week we have been looking at ways to improve our reading comprehension skills. We are encouraging you to look beyond the literal meaning of a text . This means you will be looking at spotting not just the who, what, and where in a text, but also looking to explain how and why?
For homework, we would like you to read the extract from the Iron Man, both to yourself and then to an adult. Just as we do in our guided reading sessions, please discuss and clarify with your parents any unfamiliar vocabulary. You may need to look up the meanings in a dictionary.
You have a sheet to complete in the same way we did in class this week. Please stick the completed sheet into your homework book neatly. .
Challenge: Can you summarise what the text in less than 5 sentences.
Spelling there are no new spellings this week. We will set new spellings next week.
Make sure you are also learning your times tables every day. We will be doing Cracking Times Tables on Monday!
Reading regularly is essential to help improve all aspects of your learning as well as being an excellent way to relax! You are expected to read at least 4 times/week but aim to read everyday if possible! House points are awarded for reading and recording what you have read.
We will be collecting Home School Books in on Monday. Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book.
Have a lovely weekend ☺

This week we have been continuing our work on angles. We have been looking at the rules and patterns of interior angles within shapes. For your homework, you have some work on missing angles. You have to use your knowledge of angles in a straight line, full turn or opposite angles to work out the size of the missing angle. You do NOT need a protractor for this as you are not measuring the angles.
Everyone has a sheet to work on. Please work in pencil only. If you need to do some calculations or sums to help you this is fine – use a space on the sheet (we like to see your working out.) Nealty stick your sheet into your book and hand in by Tuesday 12th November.

Can I find the missing angle on a straight line?
Over the past week we have been looking at angles. For homework, you have been given some straight lines with one or two angles given (not to scale). Your job is to find the value of the missing angles. You will be able to do this without using a protractor. Remember, all of the angles along a straight line must add up to 108°. You may work on the sheet this week, but remember your title and date, and to keep your work as neat as you can.
