Homework

Thursday 22nd October

 

1) Please read every day, recording in your home-school book.

2) Please practice your spellings using the list below.
3) Please complete the IXL work detailed below.

 

From now on, your homework will be assessed by the amount of time spent. If you find the work more challenging, there are alternative tasks to get you going. If you find the work more straightforward, there are extension activities. Each week you should spend a total of at least one hour, with a balance between English and maths. For example, if you spend more time on English one week, please balance this with more time on maths the next. Alternatively, you could work for about thirty minutes on each subject weekly. You do not have to complete sections to try other ones.

 

House points are awarded for every half hour worked, starting on one hour - this is to reward effort rather than achievement.

 

If you didn't do last week's homework, this will need to be caught up with in your own time. 

 

You should work at your own pace. You are not expected to do all of this work. It is mapped out for future weeks and to provide a pathway for children who want to take their learning further independently. Some of this work, especially maths, is partly designed to cover areas of the subject that might have been affected by lockdown in Year 5. It is OK if you don't understand and can't do the 'Target' questions. If you want assistance, please go to the tasks in that column.

 

  Target Assistance Extension

Maths - Time

 

Please work on time before other sections in maths.

Please do the next task in section W in Year 6 (time) that you haven't yet done.

Support and practice with time can be found here: 

Year 3, Section Q
Year 4, Section T

Year 5, Section P

 

If it helps, find tasks in these sections that you can make steady progress with and work on them. It does not matter that these are listed in other school years.

Year 7, section V has work on time which is relevant to Year 6. Please try this if you need harder work.
Maths - Units of Measurement Please start with X.1, which asks you to choose the most suitable unit of measurement for temperature. There is an element of science in this. Work as far as time allows you to.

Year 3, Section S.7 and on

Year 4, Section V

Year 5, Section O

 

These sections don't cover exactly the same content, but they will be very useful. 

Year 8, Section O

Year 7, Section S (if the above is too tricky)

 

There is good overlap between the above sections and the Year 6 curriculum.

 

Year 9, Section L (Only do this section if you have completed other extension tasks and you are interested in a wider range of units of measurement.

English - Word Relationship and Usage

Year 6, Section M

 

Please work on any section you haven't yet done.

Year 4 – Section N

Year 5 – Section N

Year 8 Section J

Year 7 Section N (if the above is too tricky)

 

Year 9, Section J can be explored if you fancy a challenge. There is nothing in it that is incompatible with Year 6 writing, though it will be very challenging.

 

Group A spellings: Please learn and practise the second group of ten spelling words from List 1 (41-50, February - heart).

Group B spellings: Please learn and practise the second group of twenty spelling words from List 1 (81-100, possible - surprise).

Group C spellings: Please learn and practise the second group of ten spelling words from List 2 (41-50, exaggerate - guarantee).

Group D spellings: Please learn and practise the second group of ten spelling words from List 2 (81-100, recommend - variety).

 

All words will eventually be covered by all groups. The pace and manner in which they are learned and practised varies between groups.

 

You are in Group A if you scored between 0 and 5 on the baseline spelling task we did.

You are in Group B if you scored between 6 and 10 on the baseline spelling task we did.

You are in Group C if you scored between 11 and 15 on the baseline spelling task we did.

You are in Group D if you scored between 16 and 20 on the baseline spelling task we did.

 

If you haven't yet completed the baseline test, please choose the spelling list that you feel will be most suitable for you - words that you feel you are capable of learning but that it will be a challenge to get all correct.

 

We will see how this goes and adjust targets accordingly.

Friday 16th October

 

1) Please read every day, recording in your home-school book.

2) Please practice your spellings using the list below.
3) Please complete the IXL work detailed below. This week you should divide your time between English and Maths. Please aim to spend approximately one hour on your homework, spread over the week (this is equivalent to less than nine minutes a day, in addition to reading and spelling). House points are awarded for every half hour worked, starting on one hour - this is reward effort rather than achievement.

 

If you didn't do last week's homework, this will need to be caught up with in your own time.

Homework and Spellings Autumn 2020

Lime Class Homework

Handed out: Friday 6th March

Due in: -

Spelling test: Friday 13th March

 

Spellings

 

Because I was away for the first seven days of this half-term, this week’s homework will be devoted only to spellings, to allow us to keep to the schedule given out before half term.

 

Therefore next Friday, there will be the test for Friday 13th March (see below) as well as the test that would have taken place today (Friday 6th March). Please be ready for both of these. There will be no other homework in order to give you more time to prepare for these.

 

Spelling Information – as given out before half term

 

Spelling List 1 is the standard list.

Spelling List 2 is the alternative list.

 

We have now almost completed the first run through the standard list of spellings and will start to review these. These spellings represent the expectation for upper key stage two (Year 5 and 6); by the end of Year 6, most children should be able to spell most of the words correctly. After half-term, we will start to test the spellings in a different way.

 

For quite a few of you, there needs to be an improvement in weekly performance. Remember that you have individual targets and these are based on what you yourself achieved in an assessment at the beginning of the year. If you are not reaching these targets, you will be retested using our usual type of testing. You will be set ten words per week and will be expected to score highly on this test. In addition, you will take part in the multiple-choice tests in order get practice in. If you are reaching your targets, you will be given multiple-choice tests based on more than just twenty of the words. Therefore you should revise the words you find harder from a longer list. Please see the attached list to know when you will be tested on each set of spellings. If you are unsure whether you are achieving your targets, please check with me.

 

For children whose targets are based on the alternative list, please continue to practice the next set of words. A list of when each set of words will be tested is given below.

Homework 2019-20

 

Friday 6th September 2019

 

There is no written homework this week. We will have our first spelling test next week but this will be based on words the children will not prepare for me (to allow me to set targets). 

 

Children should be reading daily. When our home-school record books arrive, these will provide a space to record reading.

 

For anyone who wants to go that 'extra mile', our focus this term is on the natural world, especially British plants and animals. Finding out the names of local trees, birds, flowers and other animals and learning to identify them will be a good way to explore this topic away from school
