Homework now set Friday to Friday - due in Thursday 4th April
 
 
Maths: Mathletics is set so please complete the tasks. If all of those are complete, they could look at areas where they have score less than 80% and attempt them again - looking and fractions, decimals and percentages would be especially helpful. Children should be aware of what areas they need to work on in their arithmetic too. Also, the more multiplication table recall they could do, the better - the old chanting it out way is still a pretty good way of doing it or there a a number of free websites or app available. There is also 'Multiverse' which you can access for free through the Mathletics website - but unfortunately not the app.
 
Theme:
 
This week I would like the children too look at answering any of the BIG questions that they may have about space. During our work in school they are forever coming up with questions like: How are stars born? How was the moon created? How far away is...? This week's task is to answer some of these questions and present their findings however they wish.  
 
 Unfortunately many children are not completing either of their homework tasks. There are always opportunities to complete tasks in school (in their own time). If they need resources - such as paper etc. I can provide them.
I have reset all of the Mathletics tasks back to zero. They will now have 5-10 to complete each week. if homework is not completed, they will have to do it in their Golden Time. 
 
Homework now set Friday to Friday - due in Friday 29th March
 
 
Maths: I will set/assign new tasks on Monday when I am back in school. In the mean time the children can complete the remaining sections of area, perimeter and volume. If all of those are complete, they could look at areas where they have score less than 80% and attempt them again - looking and fractions, decimals and percentages would be especially helpful. Children should be aware of what areas they need to work on in their arithmetic too.

Theme:
 
This week we have been looking at the spherical bodies in space - the Earth, Sun, Moon and the 8 planets. This week I would like the children to add to their knowledge in class and create a fact-file on any planet, star or moon in space. Look at the size comparison, position in the galaxy, neighbours, number and name of satellite (moons), when it was discovered and by whom. They could draw a picture or list facts or anything else!

Theme: We are continuing to focus on science for the remainder of the half term and Space in particular. For homework I would like to the children to research VIPs in the space world. This could be a page of facts, a biography, photographs (you can always email the school with any electronic homework), a book with key points picked out. They could be people from the past such as Galileo Galilei or people form the present - like Peake.
 
Also, throughout next week Miss Hambleton will be giving the children a 'pop quiz' on what they have learnt throughout their time with her learning french - greetings, places, days and months and shopping. All children have a french book which they should have brought home - so any bonus practise they can do would be great!

Theme: This week is science week! So children can choose to  either recreate one of the experiments we are going to be doing in school or do their own science experiment at home. They could write up their findings, take pictures or even bring it in on Friday to show people what they have done. Alternatively they could choose a famous scientist and write/create a mini-biography as they did last week; this can be written in note form looking at the main events in their lives.

Also, for World Book Day on Friday 8th March we will be focusing on David Walliams as our author. So if you have any of his books, please could you bring them in for the class to use and read. We will then be dressing up as a character from a David Walliams book on the 8th March! So get your costumes ready!

Theme: Talk about the whole of the 'This is ME' Theme this year as it is coming to an end. What did you enjoy most? What activities did you do? What have you learnt about yourself? What could we do next time? Is there anything else you would like to learn about yourself?  Writer down a few of these ideas onto a piece of paper and bring it in after half term - ready for the new theme: V.I.P! 
 
Also, for World Book Day - which will be held a week after the national one (due to the London trip) - we will be focusing on David Walliams as our author. So if you have any of his books, please could you bring them in for the class to use and read. We will then be dressing up as a character from a David Walliams book on the 8th March!

Theme: Tuesday 5th February is a national Safer Internet Day (SID) so in class on Tuesday the children will be watching a number of videos linked to staying safe online. More information about the day can be found on: https://www.saferinternet.org.uk/safer-internet-day/2019
There are also some great videos and activities to look at on: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/preventing-abuse/keeping-children-safe/share-aware/
 
For their homework I would like them to complete the questionnaire and return it to school and also to complete their 'pledge' about staying safe online at home and at school; it would be great if you could discuss this as a group.
 
 
Week Beginning: 21/01/19
 
Maths: To complete the matheletics tasks set.
 
Theme: To create a Saxon house/small-holding/village
 
It could be created by: drawing their design (either 2D bird's-eye-view or 3D); making a paper/cardboard model; building a model our of modelling clay, wood, mod-roc, papier mache - whatever they can get their hands on. If you are short on resources at home, then please come and ask me to see if I can help.
 
As they are creating it, make sure that they look at the details of what makes them Saxon. What are the differences and similarities of the houses then and now?
 
Good Luck!
 
Week Beginning: 07/01/19
 
Maths: Mathletics will be set once again - there are quite a few children who are not completing these task at home so they will be asked to find time in school to complete them. It is really important that the children dip into this resource little and often so that the new skills that they have learnt in class can be embedded. Also, remember to encourage them to have a piece of paper by their side - Mathletics is not a mental maths application; it involves written methods too. 
 
Topic: New Year resolutions! We will be discussing their resolutions in class and will be thinking about choosing realistic challenges to complete - obviously some with the help of people at home or out of school. Please make sure that you discuss them and look at how they can achieve them. You can then send in evidence whenever they are completing or have achieved it.
