Homework Thursday 7th February
(Main homework due Tuesday 26th February, Mathletics due Tuesday 12th February, as normal).
Over the next 2 weeks, including the half term holiday, I would like you to research sun dials. Create an information document, telling me all you can discover, including who first invented them, how they work, how to make one etc. Make sure you include a technical drawing of what a sun dial looks like. You may present this information in any way you wish, as long as it is to a high standard.
I would then like you to make me your own sun dial. This can be made from any material you wish, including paper, card, wood, or anything else you choose or have available. Tell me how you made it and include any difficulties you found, or changes you had to make to your original design. Remember to test it to check it works?
Have your presentation and sun dial completed by the first Tuesday after half term.
Mathletics tasks have been assigned and are due to be completed by Tuesday, as normal. Remember to ask for help on Monday, if you need it, rather than Tuesday when it is due!

Homework Friday 4.1.19. (due by Wednesday 9th)
This week, I would like to research the Silk Route. We will be writing a text about this in class, so you need to know as many interesting facts about it as you can. Think about what countries it passed through, who travelled along it, what goods were traded, how it affected Baghdad and any other important places you discover. Look for fun facts, surprising facts, gory facts - anything you think will make your writing interesting.
You do not need to write this up - it is in note form, for your use only and will not be marked. Just remember - spell tricky / foreign / new words carefully and have enough information to write a good text in class.
Mathletics tasks have also been set and are due to be completed by Wednesday (as I was a day late setting it this week).
Homework Thursday 13th December (Due Tuesday 18th)
