Northgate Homework: Friday, March 2nd

Any misconceptions will be addressed after the children complete their homework tasks. These may be done through whole class, small group or individual sessions.

KS2 Grammar Punctuation and Spelling – Pages 34 & 35 Staying in the same tense.

This page will help to prepare the children to maintain the correct tense within their Literacy writing next week.

KS2 Problem Solving 1

Pages 12 Capacity: This requires to apply their knowledge of measurement, which they were developing within Maths last week. Hints: 1. The children need to use their multiplication knowledge and halving the 2 litres. 2. Again, the children will need to use their multiplication knowledge and recognise it is for 2 children. 3. The children may need to be reminded they could solve 3 x 9 and then add the zero (applying their grid method skills). 4. The use of multiplication skills are again needed. Encourage the children to use the space for working out and checking their answers.

Page 13 Balloons: This also requires to apply their knowledge of money, which will be taught over the coming weeks. It may be useful to use coins or printed coins for the children to visually see the money. Alternatively, they could use column addition and subraction to solve the problems.


KS2 Problem Solving 2 –

Worksheet – Area and Perimeter. Again, I have printed a worksheet for the children to complete to ensure the homework links directly to their work within school. The children have been developing and applying these skills within the classroom and should be confident to calculate perimeter using grid multiplication. They need to count the squares to find the area of the shapes, making sure they recognise each diagonal line through a square counts as half!

Sumdog - Please encourage your child to use Sumdog this week.

Spelling - Spellings were added to your child’s spelling book on Monday. These will be tested next Monday. After the half term, this will return to being on a Thursday. Thank you for understanding.

Write 2 or 3 sentences that include as many of your spelling words as possible.

Thank you for your continued support.
