Homework - 17. 05. 2019

This week, the homework task is slightly different. As you are aware, we are taking part in the 'Spotlight' project with St. Joseph's. Next week we will be attending a dance, drama and performing arts workshop at St. Joseph's. Following on from this, we will create our own original dance and musical piece linked to the musical 'Hairspray' during school hours over the next few weeks. Together with other primary schools, we will be performing these at the Avenue Theatre on Wednesday 26th June. There will be more details about this event on a letter on due course. 

 

As a class, we will be creating a dance for 'The Nicest Kids in Town' and we will be signing 'You Can't Stop the Beat'. It will be unlikely that all children will need to learn all the lyrics. However, I would like them all to practise with the words (a printed copy has been sent home) so they are used to the melody. 

 

Nothing has to be handed into the homework tray. It will be apparent who has listened to the song/had a look at the lyrics when we begin practising next week.

Homework - 26. 04. 2019

This week, we have begun a new unit of learning in English based around the book 'Journey to the River Sea' by Eva Ibbotson. I would like your child to research the differences and similarities between the Amazon Rainforest and a forest in the U.K (this could be Thetford, or another local forest/woodland your child is familiar with). 

 

You can display your research in any way you wish. Please put your completed homework in the red tray in the classroom by next Friday.

Homework - 21. 03. 2019

This week, the homework is English based. Please download and print the spelling, punctuation and grammar assessment below. For your child to get the most from it, I would suggest letting them complete it independently first, then go back together and support them on any questions they are unsure on (please talk them through the answers and explain, rather than copying from the answer sheet). 

 

This is a gentle way of getting them used to questions phrased in this way and revisiting the grammar terms we have learnt so far this year.

Homework - 08. 02. 2019

This week, the homework is English based. In class, the children have been writing a non-chronological report about the fictional planet Pandora (see link below with a video describing this planet). Each child has designed their own alien insect, and has included a paragraph describing this in their writing. 

 

As they have enjoyed this unit so much in class, their homework is linked to this current topic. Your child can choose one of the below activities for their homework this week. 

 

  • Write a diary entry for an astronaut landing on the planet, describing the journey, landing, meeting the inhabitants etc. 
  • Design a space vehicle for landing on the planet, what special tools would it need?
  • Write an explanation or set of instructions 'How to Care For...'   the insect you have designed in class.

Homework - 01. 02. 2019

This week, the homework is maths based. Please click the link below to open up an interactive game titled 'Multiplication Station'. The aim of the game is to keep multiplying two numbers together to make the total displayed at the bottom of the screen. However, you can only use numbers in the grid. The 'total' number keeps changing, and you have to clear as many numbers from the grid as possible. I have played this game as a starter in the classroom, so they should know how to play it (it's much easier to just give it a go and play around with it). 

 

Please play this game on five different occasions throughout the week (playing as many games as you wish each time).

Homework - 25. 01. 2019

This week, the homework is English based. Please download the worksheets below and complete all three. They require the children to identify whether each word on the balloons is being used as a verb or a noun. This sounds simple, but in class I have noticed that many have forgotten the difference between verbs and nouns! So this extra practise at home will really help to jog their memories. I have paper copies in class if needed.

Homework: 18. 01. 2019

This week, the homework is maths-based. We have spent all week learning how to use long multiplication, which can be tricky. The children who have a solid recall of their tables have had an advantage to mastering this method in class. 

 

Please ask your child to select the most appropriate challenge and complete the calculations in their homework books.

Homework: 11. 01. 2019

This week, the homework is both English and Topic based. Our new topic this half term is ‘Countries of the World’. I would like your child to pick a country that interests them and research it. Their research could include:

 

- The national flag.

- Any food or drink linked to their country.

- Physical geography, such as coastlines, rivers, mountain ranges etc.

- The continent the country it is in.

- Size of population.

- Human geography such as famous landmarks.

 

Alongside this, I would like your child to record and define the meaning of three unfamiliar words they come across during their research.

Below are the spelling lists to learn for a test next Friday (18. 01. 2019). Your child has been informed which list they are learning.

Homework: 04. 01. 2019

Welcome back! I hope the Christmas holidays were kind to you. This week, the homework is maths based. I would like each child to draw the following in their homework books:

  • Four 2D shapes that have a perimeter of 32cm.
  • Four 2D shapes that have an area of 24cm squared.

To make this task easier, draw rectangles and squares.

For an extra challenge, draw composite shapes and record the area and perimeter for all shapes.

Most of the children’s homework books already have cm squared paper in them, which simplifies the task. I have more of this same paper in the classroom for anyone who needs it.

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.

This week, I would like your child to complete the worksheet below. We have completed a similar activity in class, where the children think of an adjective to describe the pictures to write in the 'bronze' column. Children then try to improve this adjective by using a thesaurus, and put their new word in the 'silver' column. Finally, they then include similes and personification to create a phrase for the 'gold' column. 

Homework: 07. 09. 2018

Each week, your child will be given a spelling list to learn, along with an English or Maths task. It is the expectation that children continue to use Times Table Rockstars three times a week, as all children will be assessed on their recall of their tables every fortnight.

 

Below are the spelling lists to learn for a test next Friday (14. 09. 2018). Your child has been informed which list they are learning. 

 

List A:                                                      List B:

This week's homework is maths based. I would like your child to learn the value of each letter when using roman numerals to record numbers (see table below). This will give your child a head-start when we start to cover roman numerals in class at the end of next week. Nothing needs to be handed into the homework tray this week.
