Can I fill the gaps?

For your English homework this week, we would like you to fill the gaps in our model text because some of the words have been deleted. You should try your very best to spell them correctly too. HINT: think about the actions we use to jog your memories!

Please stick your sheets in this week, and remember to write a beautifully neat date and title (which should be underlined).

 

Times Tables and Reading

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

Remember we expect you to record at least 4 pieces of reading in your home school book. We will collect home school books in every Monday. Please make sure you get an adult to sign your book.

Making a Roman Shield

As you know we are holding a Roman Day on Tuesday 25th February. One activity in the day will involve learning how to drill as Roman soldiers. To add to the atmosphere we would like the children to make their own shields. 

Here is a link to a video suggestion for how you could make one or there are many other ideas on Pinterest or the internet generally.

We hope this will be a fun activity to share with your child over the holiday period.

It would be lovely for you to put your own spin on the design.

Enjoy!

 

This week’s homework is to make a Tourist Leaflet about a Roman Bath. The leaflet needs to explain the benefits of Roman Baths, what different rooms there are and what other activities are available, when visiting. Use positive persuasive language to make it sound like a good place to go, as if you were still in Roman times. 

Enjoy the warm feel of the healing water followed by a refreshing dip in the Frigidarium. An excellent place to meet up with friends and discuss current topics, whilst enjoying a variety of entertainment.

 

Describe the different rooms you can visit, as well as the entertainment you can enjoy whilst there.

Please use the notes from your history lesson and also any information from your own research. Here are a couple of links that might be helpful:

This homework is to run over the following TWO weeks. To be handed in on the 11th of February. We will then share it in class and stick it in your History books. Please ensure your work is neat and to a high standard.

Phases of the Moon

As part of our Science work on Space we would like you to keep a diary of the moon for the month of February. We have given you a diary sheet to record this. You need to look for the moon each night and note the shape of the illuminated part which you can see. Record this by shading the circle on you diary yellow for the illuminated part and black for the dark part. You should see all the phases of the moon in this month (weather and cloud permitting!) return this to school at the end of the month.

 

We have also given you a sheet to make a flip book of the moon phases – cut out the sixteen rectangles and attach them together on the light grey side ONLY (NOT both sides).Make sure they are all up the same way! You should be able to then flip through the little pages and see the moon change.

 

5A – remember you have spelling test on Wednesday on cial/tial words

 Energize Pupils

Remember you are going to a day rehearsal on Monday 3rd February. Remember words, packed lunch and water. Wear uniform – if girls can wear trousers on this day it will be helpful as you may have to perform the dance in bare feet and trousers will be easier to manage than tights.

 

 Non-Energize Pupils

If you have any egg boxes or newspapers at home please bring them in on Monday.
