In Class 5/6, homework is given out on a Thursday and is due back on a Wednesday.
This gives you just under a week (and a weekend) to complete it.
Homework is always based-on what we've been learning about in class and will have either a maths or English focus on alternate weeks.
Sometimes, we complete topic-based homework assignments too.
Homework is especially important in Class 5/6 as it prepares you for the responsibility, time management and balancing of your workload at secondary school.
If you're ever struggling with your homework, please speak to Mrs. Daniels or Mrs. Shorthose; we will always be happy to look at homework with you before it’s due in!
Homework handed-out: Friday 13th March
Homework due-in: Wednesday 18th March

Miss. Twells has set your homework for you this week, based-on the work she's been doing with you in our maths lessons on Area and Perimeter.
This week's homework is all about approximating (or estimating) the area of irregular shapes.
Remember that an irregular shape is a shape whose sides and angles are not all the same (or regular). Also remember that 'estimating' means you need to make a sensible, educated guess. Use the information in front of you to think carefully about your answer.
As always, if you need any help with your homework, please ask any of the adults who work with you in class, who will be happy to help you (before the hand-in date next Wednesday).

This week, we've given you some maths homework based-on decimal numbers.
Year 5 - you are comparing and ordering numbers with up to 3 decimal places.
Year 6 - you are rounding decimals.
Remember the rhyme:
0-4 = slide down to the floor
5-9 = climb up the vine
Year 6 - I would like you to only complete page 51. You do not have to complete page 52 (but are welcome to have a go at some of the questions if you want to do extra for revision)!
Please complete columns A and B (C is an extension if you want to have a challenge).
We have done lots of work in class on decimals this past week so hopefully you feel confident to give it a good go.
If you need any help with your homework, please ask Mrs. Shorthose or I and we will go through it with you!

Thank you for all of your hard work over this term
(and thank you to your parents/carers for all of their support too).
We don't want you to complete any formal maths or English homework over the Christmas break - it's a time to chill-out and spend time with friends and family!
We've added a little calendar below with some festive activities to complete. You don't have to complete them in order or do them all, but it would be brilliant if you could try and do a bit of reading and practise your times tables.
Above all, have lots of fun, be helpful (Christmas can be stressful for grown-ups) and rest!
We'll be hitting the ground running in January.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy start to 2020.
With love from,
Mrs. Daniels and Mrs. Shorthose.

This week's homework is an ENGLISH piece, based-on clauses.
We've been looking at using a variety of clauses in our writing to make it more interesting and varied.
As always, if you need any help with your homework, please ask Mrs. Daniels or Mrs. Shorthose.
