18 March 2011

Posted on Friday 18 March 2011 by Mr Wilks

The homework this week is creative and is due in on Wednesday 23 March.

I can subtract.

I would like you to show me what you have learnt about subtraction. Be as creative as you like, but ensure that you show off your subtraction skills.

We thought of a few ideas as a class:

  • Design a subtraction board game.
  • Make a poster explaining how to solve subtraction problems.
  • Show off your skills by solving some challenging subtraction problems.
  • Make a video explaining how to do a subtraction calculation using a strategy.

Have fun. I will look forward to a subtraction bonanza on Wednesday!

The homework this week is a talk time homework and is due in on Wednesday 9 March.

I think spending billions of pounds on space exploration is a waste of money. Do you agree?

Children can choose to agree or disagree with the statement – as long as they have reasons to back up their opinion.

Try to encourage the children to use words like:

  • However…
  • Although…
  • On the other hand…
  • I understand your point, but I think that…
  • Conversely…
  • Another reason is…

I’ll look forward to hearing your views on this next week!

It’s half term…

It’s half-term holidays next week, so there are no homework tasks or spellings next week.

Of course, regular practice and learning can still happen: reading each day, swimming, tables practice, trips to the library, walks around Roundhay Park… All will help your child have a happy and healthy holiday!

I can find fractions.

Each child will be given a worksheet that they must complete. The problems on the worksheet will be similar to ones that we have done in class. Children must read the questions carefully so that they know what to do.

This week’s homework is creative and links to the literacy learning that we have been doing in class. It is due in on Wednesday 12 January 2011.

I can write a kenning poem.

A kenning poem describes something without giving its name away. It uses verbs ending in ‘er’.

Here is an example similar to the ones we looked at in class:

A loud-barker

A swift-sprinter

A mud-roller

A cat-chaser

A tail-wagger

Think of your own animal. Now write a kenning poem about your animal. Remember to think of all the verbs (doing words) that your animal does and then add ‘er’ to the end of them.

Adjectives/ Adverbs group: Try to use your ambitious vocabulary. Can you think of even better words eg eater could also be scoffer or gobbler.  (Remember your hyphens too!)
