Derwent And Foss Homework
Week Commencing 20th October 2014
Literacy – We have been focusing on using a range of connectives to extend our writing.
Examples of connectives– whilst, so, as, because, meanwhile, however, therefore
Imagine you are the one of the last people left on earth. What would you do? How would you survive? Write a short diary of your day using a range of connectives. The diary must be at least five sentences long and no more than ten sentences so make them amazing!
CHALLENGE: Earn 2 extra team points if you can use a subordinate clause as a sentence opener to really up level your sentence! Then an extra 3 team points if you can add an embedded clause.
This week we are learning key words:
Owls – feast, least, beast, treat, heat, meat, seat, cheat, beat, season
Bats – tease, increase, disease, peace, cheese, geese, squeeze, freeze, breeze, sneeze
Badgers and Foxes – dangerous, hazardous, prosperous, poisonous, joyous, mountainous, scandalous,
marvellous, various, ridiculous
Number gym—work through the MUST, SHOULD and COULD challenges! Don’t move on until you are lightening fast! But, keep challenging yourself. Year 3 children should be pleased if they have completed the MUST and some may well have tried the COULD. Year 4 should work through MUST and SHOULD and some may have tried COULD. Year 5 children should be working well though the MUST and SHOULD and be working to achieve the COULD.
Year 3 —have a go at completing the x3 and x4 times table in order in under 1min 30secs then move on to the 3 and 4 X tables in random/mixed order.
Year 4—be successful at the 2 , 3 and 4X tables in order and then have a go at them in random order.
Year 5—be successful at the 2,3,4,5,6X tables in order and then have a go at them in random order.
Remember – even if you know your number facts keep refreshing your brain so you don’t get rusty.
