This week's homework...

As the children are performing in our summer production, Pirates of the Curry bean, we have asked the children to learn their lines so they can perform without the scripts as soon as possible. Please use what would have been conventional homework time to go through lines and learn them off by heart as we only have a few weeks until we take to the stage for our performances.

 

Tickets ordered so far will be allocated next week. Also due to technical issues Standon Bowers residential photos will now be uploaded next week , sorry for the delay and I appreciate your patience.

 

Thanks

It is Grammar and Maths questions for this week. Please return for next Wednesday.

 

Thank you.

 

Mr. Schofield

This week the English based homework is linked to S.P.A.G and working on our SATS style questions. 

The Maths homework is a selection of arithmetic questions written in the SATS style.

 

 

Good Luck.

 

Mr. S

 

This Easter the children are expected to complete the SATS Easter Revision workbooks. This only requires 10 minutes a day. I will then look at them completed in full when we return from a well earned break. 

 

Please enjoy your break, rest, relax and come back ready for the challenges that lie ahead. 

 

Mr. Schofield

This week Year 6 have a Reading Comprehension task based around Peter Pan. They must answer the VIPER style questions based on the text.

 

The Maths is still the Arithmetic paper but a new selection of questions has been chosen for this week. If your child has already completed the full paper on their own please message me for more Maths tasks.

 

Good Luck!

This week the children will have a printed Grammar  homework to bring home based on the theme of Myth and Legends. This will involve the children answering SATS style questions on Grammatical terms and revising their knowledge.

 

The Maths will be based on a selection of SATS style questions taken from Arithmetic papers. 

 

They have worked exceptionally hard and done themselves proud during mock SATS week.

Well done one and all. 

 

Good Luck!

Mr. Schofield

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week the children have been using the summarising skill of our VIPERS. They have answered questions, given alternative titles and been asked to sequence events from a text. This homework will hopefully give pupils the chance to demonstrate these acquired skills.

 

In Maths, we have studied Area and Perimeter this week and we will continue this next week and so the Maths homework links with this area of study.

 

Good Luck 

 

Mr. Schofield

Last weeks Maths homework was a selection of questions based on Measurement and units of measurement, this was what we had studied that week. I still feel we need to revise this further. These are Year 6 questions and if you are having trouble please seek me out before its due in so I can help or explain any you are having trouble with.

 

The Reading homework was a text themed around a text called 'the Cave' This week the children have been exploring a writer's word choices and the impact they have on a reader. The children will have to answer questions on word choices and word classes. 

 

Good Luck

Maths homework: This week you have 16 mini maths questions based on multiplying. Easy?

They should be.

But remember, we've been working in class on using the most efficient mental methods (using jottings), so we can get to the answer much quicker than writing out a formal method. When you complete your homework, think carefully about what you are going to do to calculate the answer and why. 

The questions should then take you under 15 minutes to complete as you'll have less than a minute per question on the Y6 arithmetic paper. 

 

Reading homework: You have an extract to read and some 'inference questions to answer. Be careful! - they are Y6 level so you will need to read and concentrate carefully on the text. Make sure you find the relevant information to answer the questions.

Maths homework: My Maths - Y5 recap of long multiplication. You'll need to do your working out on paper first

English homework has been stuck into your homework books. It is a skimming and scanning activity. Try to complete it in under 15 minutes!

This week's homework should not take you long - just a quick activity to get you into the routine of completing it.

 

Please also remember to learn your spellings and read at home.

 

Your task:

We've learned lots of new skills in maths this week: square numbers, cube numbers, prime numbers, factors, multiples and scaling multiplication facts (e.g. if 3 x 4 = 12 the 0.3 x 4 = 1.2)

I'd like you to EITHER

1) create a colourful poster about 1 of the facts. Do this nice and big so the best ones can go onto our working wall.

2) create a colourful maths dictionary page to show what each of these concepts mean - wit examples. 

 

Have a wonderful weekend, 

Miss Wood
