    Y5 English homework due Tuesday 23rd January

    This week, we have been looking at balanced arguents/discussion etxts. These are where the writer shows an understanding of both issues but lets the reader make up their own mind. We have considered graffiti this week and next week will consider the following topic: Technology: help or hindrance.

    Part 1. Read the articles and consider the points the author is making. What counter-arguments can you think of to show both sides of the story? (She is quite anti-technology). Write/type some and bring to the lesson on Tuesday.
    Part 2. Talk to a mixture of people at home this weekend about the issue. What do they think? Do they have anything else to add to the topic? Add their thoughts to your notes.

    This is needed for the lesson on Tuesday so please make sure you bring your work!

    Y5 homework

    Maths due Tuesday 12th December
    Sorting division sheets. You have some calculations on your sheet; some are right and some are wrong. You need to sort them into the correct table and if they're wrong, write what has gone wrong and correct it. I would suggest first of all that you do them all using the short method we've covered in class (see mathsframe if you're unsure) and then you'll be able to look at the ones which are different, test and then sort them. There are two levels to choose from: easy or expert. If you are still finding short division tricky, please spend some time playing the mathsframe game instead from last week's homework or practising the method at home. Please come to hwk club if you're unsure.

    No CLJ/topic this week; spend 45 mins on English please.

    English - needed MONDAY 10TH
    1. Plan your own genre swap story. We have covered Cinderella in space as a sci fi and Jack and the Beanstalk with multiple genre, so please don't do those. You first need to think about what your starting story in (fairy tales work best as everyone knows them!) You could do the Three Little pigs as a sci fi in space or Little Red Riding Hood as a horror. Think about the settings and characters and what sorts of things belong in each type of story.

    We will write it over 3 lessons next week so please think carefully about what will happen in each section so you have enough detail to write with.
    2. Think of one of the characters in your story in particular; we will write a detailed description of them on Monday's lesson so spend some time thinking about them in more detail.
