Derwent And Foss Homework

Date set: 15th January

Due in: 22nd January

Literacy – This week, we have been building longboats and finding out more information about Viking life. Your task is to turn into a Viking and explain what it would a day on the longboat would be like. How would you feel? Would the weather worry you? Could you manage with the food, the hard work (rowing the boat) and the wavy sea?

CHALLENGE– For 2 team points try to use a different high level connective in every sentence and 5 WOW words in your writing.


This week we are learning to spell interesting adjectives to add to our writing:

Owls –  their, these, our, are, you, your, about, would, could, were

Bats –   swiftly, quickly,  magically,  their, stopped, about, coming,  because,  noise, couldn’t

Badgers- amazingly, carefully,  bravely, excitedly, hurriedly,  mightily, patiently, stealthily, steadily,  wickedly

Foxes  – discretely,  courageously,  dramatically, mightily,  vigilantly, menacingly,  immediately, luxuriously ,

humorously, extraordinarily

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 4, 6, 7 and 9X 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.
