In English this week, I noticed that there was a little bit of confusion with direct speech and indirect speech.
Have a look at the homework on this topic and see if you can really understand it fully. You can complete the 1 star work, 2 star work or 3 star work - It's up to you! I have also included the answers so mark your own homework and see how you get on.
Please complete the sheet on volume. Remember 1 star is less complicated and 3 star the most complicated.
Don't forget the formula - length x width x height.
Remember that multiplication is commutative so it doesn't matter which order you put your numbers!

In maths this week we have begun our unit of work on fractions. To continue through the unit we need to make sure that you are confident with equivalent fractions.

Thursday 17th October
No specific spellings this week but we will be testing all of the Year 5/ 6 words which you will find in your reading record and there's a copy below as well. Choose the ones you need to work on and learn those.
If you haven't completed the reading comprehension from last week, make sure that it is completed and handed in by Friday 1st November.
You have a problem solving task this week.
We have been working on square numbers.
Can you put the numbers 1-17 in a line so that the numbers that are next to each other add up to a square number?
How many can you get in a line together?
Can you put all of them in the line?
It may be easier to make cards for the numbers 1 - 17 and line them up and rearrange.
For example; I can put 17 and 8 next to each other in my line because they total 25. I would then need to put 1 next to the 8 to make 9.
The explanation below may help you.
Friday 11th October
These will be tested on Thursday
Your English homework this week is to complete the Reading Comprehension Assessment. If you can't access the homework online, speak to Mr Jackson on Monday 14th October and ask for a paper copy.

Try to answer the 2 mark and 3 mark questions in as much detail as you can.
This week I would like you to continue work on your long division. Then complete the questions underneath each model. You can choose which method works best for you.
Please below for how we solve them
