This week I have set 4 differentiated mathletics tasks for everyone. It would be really great if for our last week of mathletics if we could surprise the rest of the school and win the most points. Let's all pull together on this one Ospreys!
This week I would like you all to write a book review of Coraline by Neil Gaimon. This should include a brief synopsis (what the story was about, with no spoilers), opinions on the book and recommendations to others (including appropriate ages).
(This means knowing the correct verb endings, depending on the pronoun).
Learn the correct endings for the verbs ‘to be’ and ‘to have’ in French.
être – to be:
je suis – I am
il / elle est – he / she is
avoir – to have:
j’ai – I have
il / elle a – he / she has
Now write a sentence using each one correctly. See if you can use a conjunction and some adjectives too!
(You may write any sentence at all, using vocabulary you know. Remember only ever to look up nouns or adjectives in dictionaries, not verbs etc).
For the final week's homework before SATs, please complete the rest of the grammar book (this shouldn't be too much actually, but if you have more than you can manage, do what you can),
Non-fiction pages 22 - 31
Arithmetic pages 30 - 31 and 42 - 44
Geometry pages 40 - 43
10 dojos for anyone managing to complete everything!
No homework the following week - I promise!
Geometry pages 17 - 23 and 12 - 16
Grammar pages 20 - 27
Fiction pages 22 - 31
Fiction pages 32 - 41 are an optional extra
Spelling pages 31 - 35
Grammar pages 42 - 43
56 - 57
Geometry 35 - 39
Plus as much time as you choose to spend on the maths revision papers I have put on the page.
Don't forget to learn the year 6 expected spellings you took home.
Number and Ratio pages 27 - 31
Reading, non-fiction pages 36 - 41
Punctuation pages 28 - 33
I have set new mathletics tasks, based on area, volume and perimeter, which we have been studying in class.
In your revision guides:
Grammar pages 46 - 48
Punctuation: pages 36 - 41
Geometry: pages 29 - 34
All due to be completed and handed in by Wednesday 21st.
I hope you are all enjoying your snow days!
Please use some of this time to catch up on ALL mathletics tasks set. I have assigned new tasks within units of measure, following up on work done in class this week and last week. Those of you who have been unable to complete the tasks previously set will be able to complete these at playtime when we are back in school.
Remember, you must get more than 85 to complete the tasks; ask if you need help.
Homework for this week: spelling book, pp 20 - 21; punctuation book, pp 12 - 15; number and algebra book, pp 22 - 26.
There are also still a lot of outstanding mathletics. The children should get over 85 on each task, which may mean some tasks need more than one attempt. However, to be secure, they will need to get the higher degree of accuracy. Should any of the tasks prove difficult, there is a help button (a ? ) on each page. Failing that, they may of course, ask for help in school. I would really like to set new tasks for our current topics, but the system won't let me until all past tasks are caught up.
Half Term holiday
The children have all brought home their mock SATs papers to correct. They need to look at where they lost marks and see if they can now correct those answers. Any areas that are still proving tricky need to be brought to our attention when we get back next week.
There are a lot of outstanding mathletics tasks on algebra and long division. You should aim to get more than 85% correct on each task. Again, if there is something you don't understand, ask an adult in school.
This week the children have all been given a famous London landmark to research. They need to present their information in an interesting poster that we can put on our London display. Work can be handwritten or presented in a word document, but children must write the information in their own words. We want to see high level English being used to create an interesting text, not just a list of information. Pictures can of course be used too.
Mathletics tasks have been set on algebra to reinforce our learning in school this week.
I see nearly all of you have completed your mathletics already, so well done! Those of you who have been finding one or more of the tasks tricky may want to come and ask one of the adults for support so sort out any confusion you may have. It is worth persevering so you really understand these tasks, which will help in class.
As most of us are going to be away for the weekend, which is when I know lots of you do your homework, I have decided not to set any written work this week. However, I do still expect reading and times tables practise on the days you are home please. Normal homework will resume from next week so watch this space!
As it is the first week of mathletics, I have only set 3 tasks as a follow up to work done in class. All children have been given cards with log in details.
There is French revision for vocabulary learnt last year, plus a choice of 3 levels of English homework, again revising use of direct speech marks. Only choose 1 of the 3 levels, but make sure the challenge is correct for you.
Apologies for the late posting, but there have been problems for me getting on site to edit the page.
