Written Homework to be completed by Friday 27th November


Please learn the following words for a spelling test on 26.11.20.  This week we are again learning tricky words from the Year 5/6 Spelling List:

bruise   category   cemetery   committee   communicate   community  

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 a fronted adverbial at the beginning of your sentence?

Can you include some speech marks in your sentences?

Can you create an expanded noun phrase or use a modal verb in your sentence?

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. 


Writing Task: For your research this week, find out as much as you can about sundials.  How do they work?  Where can they be found?  Who were the first people to use them?  Find out a little bit of history about the sundial.  Please draw a picture of a sundial.


Online Tasks: I have set you some online Homework for the week beginning 16.11.20. 

For MyMaths there are 3 activities that involve practising your 3, 4 and 8 X tables.  For Purple Mash I have set you a ‘2Do’ about using commas entitled ‘Zoo Tiger’.  I would also like you to log into your Times Tables Rockstars Account practise all of your tables.  All your logins are stuck into the front of your Homework book.
