Homework

Homework: 07. 12 .2018

Next week, the children will be assessed on the year 5/6 words from the national curriculum, therefore I will not be setting any spellings to learn this week. If you would like to practise spellings at home, use the national curriculum spelling lists in the reading records to identify any words your child struggles with, and practise these as normal.

 

This week, the homework is cross-curricular, including both English and PSHE. Please complete the worksheet after watching the video below. Encourage your child to write in full sentences explaining how the hedgehog feels at different parts of the story. Then reflect on a time when someone has shown kindness to you.

This week, I would like your child to play Times Tables Rockstars at least 5 times on the ‘Garage’ or ‘Arena’ mode. I have enabled a mode on every child’s account called ‘Automatic Training Mode’. This means that after an initial assessment, the programme will provide your child with times tables to practise meeting their individual weaknesses. Once they are secure on a set of tables, the programme will gradually introduce a new set, whilst still revisiting the previous ones. All very clever!

 

I have set this homework as many children have been hindered this week during our maths lessons, because they do not have a quick and accurate recall of their tables. This has slowed them down considerably when using short division to find all the factors of two-digit numbers. Using this programme little and often will give your child the best chance of succeeded throughout year 5 and year 6.

Finally, they then include similes and personification to create a phrase for the 'gold' column.
