Derwent And Foss Homework
Date set: 5th February
Due in: 12th February
Literacy – Write about your favourite animal using different sentence types such as a compound sentence, a group of 3 for description and an adverb starter.
CHALLENGE– For 2 team points try to use a group of 3 for action sentence.
This week we are learning to spell interesting adjectives to add to our writing:
Owls – night, fright, tight, flight, might, bright, sigh, slight, knight, fight
Bats – through, people, another, mother, friend, every, again, different, surprise, always
Badgers – handcuff, handcuffs, arrive, arrives, satisfy, satisfies, mix, mixes, echo, echoes
Foxes – divide, division, accelerate, acceleration, permit, permission, object, objection, intend, intension
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, x4 and x6 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 3 , 4,6 and 9X tables in order and then have a go at them in random order.
Year 5—be successful at the All times tables in order and then have a go at them in random order. It would be great if your child knows all times tables by the time they reach Year 6.
Remember – even if you know your number facts keep refreshing your brain so you don’t get rusty.
