Home Learning

Written Homework to be completed by Friday 6th November 2020 (as it is half term you have 2 weeks to do this homework) and will be given out on Thursday  the 22nd of October 2020.

Please learn the following words for a spelling test on 5.11.20.  This week we have started to learn our words from the Year 5/6 spelling list.  These are tricky words so I have only given you 6 words to learn.   I will not only be looking at your ability to spell the words but also whether you understand the meaning.  Copy out these words using the pyramid method that has been stuck into the front of your book.  This sheet is called ‘Monarchy’.  This will help you learn to spell these words. 

accommodate   accompany   according   achieve   aggressive   amateur

Put the word into a sentence to show that you understand the meaning.  If you are unsure, look the word up in a dictionary. Please put a comparative conjunction (e.g. as well as, also, equally, similarly, likewise) or contrasting conjunction (e.g. alternatively, although, whereas, while, in contrast, however, despite) into your sentence.

Can you write a relative clause using who, which, where, when, whose and that?

Can you use sentence openers such as Another thing, Eventually, Sometimes, Afterwards, After a while, Often, Before, At last.

Can you include some speech marks in your sentences?

Can you create an expanded noun phrase?

Remember to use a range of punctuation.  You do not need to do all of these things!  Try using at least one!  Please look carefully at the VCOP sheet that has been stuck into the back of your Homework book. 

Maths Task:  Please complete the worksheet about negative numbers.


Online Tasks: I have set you some online Homework for the week beginning 19.10.20. 

For MyMaths there is a negative numbers activity.

For Purple Mash I have set you two SPAG ‘2Do’.  The first is called ‘Campsite Jim’ and is about using fronted adverbials in a sentence and the second is called ‘Frank’s clever window again’ and is about the use of inverted commas and other punctuation to indicate direct speech.  All your logins are stuck into the front of your Homework book.
