Two Week Homework Project – Due December 13th

Primary 6 have an artistic challenge to round off 2019’s homework. Taking inspiration from the Strathbungo Winter Wanderland we would like you to use one window in your home to create an art installation which should be viewed from outside at night time. Many examples can be found online and I have included a selection below:

This does not need to be a stained glass window. It can be anything at all. You can making use of colour carefully selecting transparent, translucent and opaque materials. You can create a display of something you collect, or your favourite toys, but you must think how to present them with the window framing your work. You could create a sculpture, one year a home had mountains created with sheets, a bike hung above that being ridden by a man created by stuffed clothes and a football. Another window was filled with balloons. You might want to share a message, you might want to create a snow scene for winter, ‘tis the season!

You should produce an annotated sketch of your plan before you begin. This should be brought into school with you on the 13th. We will be sharing our experiences, including any difficulties and how we overcame problems.

Share your work by taking a picture from outside your home, This can be ‘handed in’ on Teams or emailed to the school address. We will add the photos to the class blog for all to see. You could also invite your friends to come and see your work as the nights become dark earlier. It is up to you how long you keep your installation on display.

 

Have fun!

Homework 25th November, Due Friday 29th November

Spelling – Identify and spell words using the spelling rules for Week 8 and 9 words on spellingcity.com. See previous homework for further details.

Reading Passport – Begin your Reading Passport by completing your basic information, writing about the book you are currently reading, setting yourself 3 interesting reading challenges and writing about your den building challenge from last week.

Numeracy – Group measure task sheet. Complete this work in your numeracy homework jotter. If calculations are included please show working as discussed in class.

Science – Be on the look out for chemical reactions you may see everyday. Clues that a chemical reaction may have taken place, rather than just a physical reaction, include colour changes, gas released or texture change. At least one new substance must be formed and usually you can not go back to the original state. We discussed some examples and exceptions this week in class. Can you write four more in your numeracy jotter under your maths work?

Homework 18.11.19, Due 22.11.19

Homework 11th November – Due 15th November

Spelling – Access https://www.spellingcity.com/users/MrsKHorne, select the correct lists (week 7) 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.

Remember to check your dictation for corrections each week!

Numeracy – Sumdog Challenge – This week is the East Renfrewshire Sumdog Challenge. Participants answer as many questions as they can to obtain a score for accurate answers (out of 1000 as this is the maximum).

Accuracy is key! Good Luck!

If you were unable to complete your numeracy graph homework during Halloween Week this should be completed instead of Sumdog. You may chose to then compete in the Sumdog Challenge if you have time.

Other – As discussed in class, research either igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary rock formation. To share this information you can either create a flow chart, cartoon strip or poster with one labelled image. Keep it simple. We will work in groups in Friday’s science lesson to share how each type of rock is formed, and identify their features in rock samples and images.

Homework 4th November – Due Friday 8th November

* Check your homework diary for your mental maths task.

* Choose an activity from the spelling homework grid to help you learn your spelling words.

* Choose one task from the Victorian Homework Grid to complete and share with the class.

Talking and Listening – At some point during the week please sit down with your family to discuss your use of technology. During this time you should share some of the discussions which arose through our Internet Safety questionnaire on Thursday (Which information you should share online, images – trustworthy sources, do they show the whole picture and permission to share others’ images, your ‘online reputation’ – controlling who views your images and comments, who may view them in future, how your posts from behind your screen can affect others and how others’ posts and comments affect you…). This is an opportunity for you to discuss anything which may have affected you, or people you know, with your family and to talk about what you would or could do if you were upset by something online. You could even come up wth a plan where you regularly share with an adult what you have been using your online time to view so that both they, and you know you are safe if you all wish and do not already have this in place.  Having access to the internet requires trust and responsibilty, so try to be open and honest about what you do, and what you should do.

If you come up with any really good ideas that other families could use to help improve their internet safety we will be discussing these on Thursday during ICT.

Homework 23rd September – Due October 4th

Being numerate helps us to function responsibly in everyday life and contribute effectively to society. It increases our opportunities within the world of work and establishes foundations which can be built upon through lifelong learning. Numeracy is not only a subset of mathematics; it is also a life skill which permeates and supports all areas of learning, allowing young people access to the wider curriculum. (Education Scotland)

Monday 23rd September – Family Numeracy and Maths Homework Challenge
Families can choose one activity (or more if you wish) from the grid and work on this together over the next two weeks. How you record and share your homework is up to you! There are some suggestions on the grid but please feel free to be as inventive as you wish. This homework will last two weeks. On Friday 4th October, the eldest child in each family should bring in their family homework and the pupils will get a chance to share their activity with the school community. The homework should be carried out as a family and each activity can be simplified or extended to allow everyone to take part. There are lots of real life challenges to allow our pupils to see the benefit numeracy and maths has on our everyday life. These activities are designed to be fun, active and engaging for all our learners. It will not only promote their numeracy, but it will also develop their problem solving, creativity and collaboration skills.
