The children have been issued with some half term homework. This comprises of a reading comprehension activity and a separate maths task for Year 5 and 6.
I would like to improve the children's ability to answer 3-mark questions in reading comprehension papers. So, I have sent home two mini texts for the children to read and they each have a three mark question attached which the children must answer in full sentences and in detail.
Year 5 have been provided with 12 x 12 multiplication grid booklet to complete. There are sixteen 12 x 12 multiplication grids and I would like all of them to be completed by Thursday 27th February 2020. I have advised the children that they complete one grid per day, allowing themselves 15 minutes to complete it. I would like the children to time themselves and then mark and score their grids using the answer sheet at the back of the booklet.
Year 6 children have been provided with a SATs style booklet which focuses on fractions; arithmetic and reasoning. I have asked the children to show all of their working out on every single question.
Spellings have also been issued in home school records. These will be tested on Friday 28th February 2020.
All homework is due in on Thursday 27th February 2020.
