Derwent And Foss Homework

Date set: 12th February

Due in: 19th February

Literacy – The teachers have decided to get rid of golden time!! Your task is to write a letter to your teacher discussing the benefits of golden time. Should it stay or should it go?

CHALLENGE– For 2 team points try to use 4 different sentence types in your writing.


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

Owls  car, dark, park, star, start, hard, farm, part, mark, are

Bats –   cloud, house, mouse, loud, count, sound, about,  proud, shout, found

Badgers  – bored, boring, died, dying, dried, drying, lied, lying, climbed, climbing

Foxes  –  believe, receive, receipt, ceiling, perceive, brief, achieve, deceived, retrieve, relief


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.
