Homework for 15.12.17

I would like you to create your own Christmas poem this week. We have looked at different features within a poem, including rhyme, similes and alliteration. Additionally, we have written our own shape and Haiku poems. You can create a poem using structures that we have already looked at or you can make your own structure. Be as imaginative and creative as you like - poems are about expressing ideas in whatever way you choose. I look forward to reading them! :)

Homework for 1.12.17

For the last couple of weeks, we have been learning about recounts and looking at the geography of the world. I would like you to use your knowledge about these things to write a short recount from the perspective of ‘Santa Claus’ and how he has to deliver all the presents around the world in just one night. You can make it as creative as you like. Spend approximately 15 minutes on the task. Feel free to type the homework up or draw a storyboard, similar to what we did for our historical recount. Any problems, come and see me. J

  • How did they trade?
  • What was daily life like?
  • How was it different to Britain at the time?
  • How have archaeologists found this information?

We are also going to have a times table ‘quiz’ on the 24.11.17. We will just be looking at the progress/ gaps with your 2x, 5x, 10x and 4x tables. It is nothing to worry about J. Please keep practising at home. For next week’s homework, I will send home some ‘times tables’ games.

Homework for 3.11.17

 

We are not in school next Friday and then it is half-term, so for this piece of homework you have 3 weeks to complete it. We have been learning about different types and functions of teeth. I would like you to create a game that you could play with your partners in class all about teeth. You could create a game of snap, where you have to match the picture of the teeth with the definition or design a little model of your teeth and ask children to connect the labels. It is completely up to you! Try not to spend longer than 45 minutes on it. Good luck!
