I will not be setting homework this week as it is half-term next week and I think the children need a break! However, if they could continue practising their times tables this week ready for a times table focus on Friday, that would be very useful!
Homework: Week beginning 12th October:
Monday: reading at home; short book review once a book has been finished
Tuesday: spelling - please use the login to Sir Linkalot to continue to work on the words we are currently learning from Patient Potter.
Wednesday: I will send home some writing work.
Thursday: please can the children practise their timetables this week as I will test them next week
Friday: science (continued) - we have been learning about the planets in our solar system in class. If the children have time (and the inclination!) they could make their own representation of the planets at home. For example, by making a mobile, or using fruit and then taking a photograph, or using modelling clay etc. They need to concentrate on the different sizes of the planets and their order from the sun. This homework will last for the next three weeks.
This week, Year 5 have been doing a scientific investigation to try and show one of the ways in which we know that the Earth is spherical. Hopefully they can tell you what they did and why! There are some photographs below.
