Homework 31st January

Hi all, another very busy week!!!  I would like to say a big well done and thank you for the way you have behaved this week.  You all coped with the change of classroom really well.  I have loved reading your stories this week and hope many of you will enter them into the short story competition being run by The Radio 2, Chris Evans Breakfast Show.

Homework Friday 31st January 2014, due back on Wednesday 5th February 2014.

Your homework this week is to design a School Games Mascot.  You can let your imagination run wild and create your mascot using pens, colouring pencils or collage, it is up to you.  Remember what the spirit of school sports is and try to incorporate this in your mascot.

Maths – We are preparing for an inter-house hit the button tournament that will be held after half term.  Please practice your Xtables.  I have given you a couple of empty multiplication grids to complete, you can either try to improve your personal best time OR try to beat a parent/big sibling. I have also set you an activity on Mathletics.

Spellings – I was really pleased to see that many of you had been learning your spellings this week.  Don’t forget to practice them daily.

Homework 24-01-14

English.

I’ve really enjoyed our English this week.  You all shared interesting, mature and thought provoking opinions during our class debate: Should Xenotransplantation be encouraged?

After listening carefully to everybody’s ideas you must now make up your mind whether you are for or against the treatment. Write an argument using the writing frame to help you.  Remember to extend your argument by using connectives and if possible add some facts and figures to support your opinion.

Maths

It was great to see so many of you using mathletics last week. Remember if you have difficulty accessing a computer you can complete the challenges on a Monday lunch time in the IT Room with me. There is a new challenge this week and you also have 2 problems to solve.  Think about what you already know and what you need to find out before you start.

We will continue with our new spelling lists, I will provide you with 6 spellings which will be taken from a spelling pattern.  The other 4 spellings will be high frequency words that you spell incorrectly in your work. This week’s spellings all have a y with a ‘i’ sound.

Spellings

myth

gym

Egypt

pyramid

mystery

cygnet

 

 

 

 Have a great weekend.
