Other useful links to websites to use at home:
(Nrich Level 2 problems are Year 5/6 problems. Level 3 problems move into year 7 and will be suitable for children who excel in Maths).
Please read the following before completing the CGP homework books:
With the Grammar and Maths CGP books, the children will be set pages to complete. After completing the pages, the children are to mark their answers using the answer sheets provided at the back of the books. It is up to you, as a parent, whether you would like to mark their work as I know that evenings are often packed full of clubs etc, leaving little time for marking homework. The onus is really on the children to independently mark their own work and complete any errors they have made, clearly indicating that it has been corrected. The answer sheets can also be removed so that the children don't have access to them whilst working out questions; again, this is something to be discussed/decided at home.
Finally, please could you ensure that you sign the page (parent signature) to make it clear that the work has been completed as set out above before it is handed back in at school.
Please practise errors from the 100 word spelling list and, if you haven't managed to complete your pages from the CGP books, please ensure these are completed this evening.
Tuesday and Wednesday 20 and 21/02/18
Further to our discussion in class about a recent product I bought, I would like you to have a go at writing a short review for a product in your home that you use a lot. It could be an Xbox, a Microwave, an electric toothbrush or anything else you use daily. In your review, you must try to include the following:
- Points for and against,
- Grammar Targets: Semi-colon (Y6), Fronted Adverbial Phrases, Relative Clauses as just some examples,
- Formal and Informal (Formal could be specifications and informal could be quotes about the product).
Ensure your reviews are complete. You may type and print your review if you like and then bring them in tomorrow so we can listen to them as a class and see if we are persuaded to buy your product!
If you have already completed your review, please ensure you spend time on your spellings (Errors from the 100 word list).
