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.

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.

Homework

***I have given any children experiencing technical issues a chance to complete their ICT task in school today. Numeracy and Literacy tasks can be completed without accessing Teams this week. Until everyone is able to access Teams from home we will post homework here on the blog and items which would be submitted through Teams should be emailed to the class email address Kh6a@kirkhill.e-renfrew.sch.uk***

Numeracy – Create a question to investigate in your home (e.g. How Many Windows Are in Each Room in My Home? How Many Walls Are in Each Room in My Home. Which Colours Decorate the Walls in My Home?). Create a list or table to help you tally your results. You have the choice of using excel or paper to create a graph of your findings. Remember your success criteria (title, axes labelled across the lines and titled, correct information displayed, scale equally spaced etc…). You don’t need to colour in your graph but can if you like. Please bring in your graph, or submit it here. You don’t need to hand in your notes.

Other Area – ICT Spreadsheets. Using the formula we learned last week in ICT complete the answer cells on the spreadsheet attached. (Remember the computer will complete the calculation for you!)

3. Recap Challenge – new

Homework – Due Friday 13th

Homework is now available to view on Microsoft Teams. This week we are investigating our home to create a graph, completing a spreadsheet using formula used in class and using https://www.spellingcity.com/users/MrsKHorne to practise our spelling rule.

Homework is always explained clearly and carefully in class on either Friday or Monday to ensure understanding, but if they forget anything we are happy to discuss this again.

All children have checked again that they are able to access glow. A few passwords have been changed over the last two weeks to two words with no capitals and one space, to aid recall.  Please check your child is able to open their homework at home, and understands their tasks each Monday night. This will allow us time to arrange computer access over the week if neccessary. It can be completed any night Monday – Thursday but we recommend not leaving it to Thursday night as homework can be time consuming. Recommended length, set out in our school Homework Policy, is 20-30 minutes a night for P5 and P6. If you find tasks are taking your child too long please just stop and send in a short note.

Occassionally there may be events happening at home over the week. We both completely understand this. A short note on Friday explaining this is why homework could not be completed on time is perfect. If your child is repeatedly stuggling with homework, please do contact us so that we can help but hopefully this will not be the case.

P6a homework

This week’s homework will be available on Microsoft Teams from Monday. To access this log on to your glow account, click on the red office 365 tile, select teams and then the assignments tab. We all checked we were able to log in to glow, opened assignments and looked at how to ‘hand in’ completed work last Thursday.

If you have any issues accessing your homework at home on Monday please let Mrs Jamieson know on Tuesday, or Mrs Horne on Wednesday. We can check you are able to login or arrange access to the computers in the atrium at lunch time if you don’t have access at home.

We hope you enjoyed your weekend. We are looking forward to seeing you, with your responsible adults, on Thursday night, if you are free and able. You are invited to visit the classroom to see some of the resources we will be using this session, in P6a.
