Shipgate Homework.

Shipgate Homework: Friday, October 19th

Date Set: Friday 19th October 2018

Date Returned: Thursday 25th October 2018

If your child does not understand anything then we ask that you encourage them to bring their homework to morning challenge where we can help them with the concepts.

This week, the children’s homework is supporting their:

  • Understanding of using speech marks.
  • Reinforcing their problem solving skills.

English: Comprehension: 28 & 29: The Witches Poems

Reading: Please encourage your child to read daily and record this in their reading diary. Once they have finished a book they must complete a book review, where they reflect on their reading. There are spare book review sheets in Shipgate, as there is not enough in the reading diaries.

You should write one comment in your child’s reading diary once a week. We kindly ask you to initial in their planner to confirm your child has either read with you or independently, every night of the week.

Spellings: There are no spellings next week. Please use this time to practise the ones you found tricky this half term. You should design an acroynm for these words to help you remember them.


Mental Arithmetic: Workout book: Pages 28 and 29 - Money Problems

Times Tables/Division Challenge: Complete the ultimate times table and division challenge. The children should set a 10-minute timer for each one, and answer as many of the questions as possible. We have talked to them about answering all the ones they know first, then going back to the trickier ones with their spare time.

Thank you for your continued support,

The Year 5 Team.
