Home Learning this week
Written Homework to be completed by Thursday 22rd October 2020 (as half term starts on the 23rd) and will be given out on Friday the 16th of October 2020.
Please learn the following words for a spelling test on 22.10.20. This week we have been learning about words that end with ible and able. 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.
terrible incredible edible reversible invincible adorable forgivable
disposable valuable respectable
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.
Written Task: This week I would like you to find out as much as you can about the City of Chichen Itza in Mexico. Why is it considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the New World? Can you organise your research into sections using subheadings? Can you present your information using bullet points?
Online Tasks: I have set you some online Homework for the week beginning 12.10.20. For MyMaths there are two x tables activities – one is a mixture of 7,8 and 9 x tables and the other is to practise your 12x tables. For Purple Mash I have set you one SPAG ‘2Do’. It is called ‘Anna and the Trampoline’ and it is about using modal verbs. All your logins are stuck into the front of your Homework book.
