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.
