Homework for October 27 – 31

Really, there’s a lot more going on at school than just homework, and we promise to bring it all to you. But in the meantime…here’s the homework.

Year 1

For homework this week I would like the children to complete the following tasks:

  • Numeracy: Subtraction. This week we have been looking at subtraction! The children have been learning how to take away and I would like them to practice this new skill with two simple worksheets.
  • Literacy: The children need to read the words at the top of the page and then look at the pictures and write the words underneath.

Year 2

Literacy: In Literacy we have continued to think about instructions and recipes. We have made some very scary recipes using lots of rather disgusting ingredients.This week the children need to draw a picture of who their recipe is for, so a scary witch or monster. They then need to label the picture clearly using adjectives – describing words.

Numeracy: We have been looking at money.Can the children make a scary money monster to add up to 20c or 50c and then tell me which coins they have used? The children need to draw around the coins or make rubbings of the coins that add up to these amounts, making it into a monster or a witch.

Lastly, if the children can make a Halloween/autumn craft or picture to bring into school for the house competition which is taking place this coming week that would be great.

As usual there are spellings in their books to learn for Thursday, and daily reading.This week’s story time books have been The Large Family – complete collection by Jill Murphy – the children seemed to definitely like them!

Year 3

Literacy: This week the children have to look for signs where they live, draw them and write what the sign is telling us to do. The children also have the usual spellings and reading.

Numeracy: The children have been learning about 2D shapes and their properties. They have a sheet to reinforce what they have learnt in class this week.

Science: I have given the children a simple investigation about friction to do at home.

Year 4

English: Spelling: Learn spelling words on p.16 and do exercises p.17 on the provided paper. Test on Wednesday.
Punctuation: Do the exercises on Capital letters and full stops on p. 12.

Maths: Complete Maths on Money problems p. 28.

Year 5

Literacy: We have been looking at recounts this week in the form of UFO sightings. For homework the children need to complete their final Alien Diary entry. They also need to try to add some time/event adverbials to the list in their UFO booklets.The children also have their spelling list books and school reading books.

Numeracy: This week the focus was on grid multiplication, so there is a sheet of this process to practice at home.

The children also have their assembly scripts of ‘Dr. Who and the Vikings,’ so they need to learn their lines.

Year 6

English: Year 6 need to finish their detective stories. They also need to choose their favourite person to prepare to write a biography of that person.

Geography: They have been given a geography project for the following 3 weeks to find and collate information for a presentation on their given country.

R.E. – complete ‘The Life of Buddha’.

Year 7

Geography: Complete “What is soil erosion?”

History: Research The Domesday Book

English: Find their own scary poem to read in class

R.E Finish the life of Siddhatta Gotama storyboard.

Year 8

Geography: Question 2 of “How does the sea shape the coast?”

History: Complete”Did Elizabeth find a middle way in religion?” work

English: Read paragraphs 1,2 and 3 of chapter 21 and write about setting and mood.

And there it is, folks. The kids have a busy week with homework, coming up with Halloween decorations using natural materials, and putting the finishing touches on their costumes. We can’t wait to see everyone at the Halloween party! Have a great week!

  1. Buenos días, Quería saber si las tareas son para la misma semana en que la enviáis. Ya que en el caso de Y 6 recibimos el mensaje a la noche de martes (28/11) y lo de la biografía había sido esa misma mañana. Lo mismo con lo del detective. Mi pregunta concreta es si este mensaje no debería enviarse el viernes de la semana previa. En este caso debería haberse enviado el viernes 24 ?. Espero que me aclaréis un poco este tema. Muchas gracias Un saludo.

    • Hola,

      The homework is posted as soon as it is all received from the teachers. In most cases, the work is due the Friday of that week. If it is due earlier, that should be noted in the homework diaries.

      Students should have all homework and deadlines directly from their classroom teachers, and the homework posting on the blog is meant to let the parents know what their children are doing, not necessarily as a substitution for what the students are told in class.

      If you do have any questions about the homework, please feel free to write queries in your child’s diary.
