Homework 7th October – Complete by 11th October

Spelling – Access https://www.spellingcity.com/users/MrsKHorne, select the correct lists use spellingcity’s games to help you learn your words. Each week you are also to learn five words that you have selected yourself with the spelling rule taught on Mondays. These will not be on spelling city. Instead practise the rule making your words using active strategies (writing words on a partners back to guess, make with pasta or play doh, rainbow writing, cheerleading the words etc…). You do not hand evidence of this in to school. It should be short, fun and engaging. You will complete a short dictation which uses words of a similar difficulty, though not the 5 specific words, which follow the spelling rule on Fridays.

Literacy Additional Task – Access https://www.readtheory.org – Using your personal login and password please spend time this week reading and answering questions fo at least one passage.

Numeracy/Science – If possible this week (weather allowing) create a sundial outside your house. This is best completed on a sunny day. As modelled in school on Wednesday, you could return to the same spot throughout the day and mark your shadow line each hour, or you could push a stick onto soil and mark the shadow over the passing hours in a more inventive way .

CHALLENGE EXTENSION QUESTION – Does your shadow move around by the same angle each hour? If it did what angle should be there be between each hour line marked on the ground? Can you explain this?

If you are able to complete this task you can ‘hand in’ a photo on teams or just tell us what you did on Friday.
