P5H Homework and Reminders – w/b 12.9.16

Good afternoon everyone. I hope you have been enjoying the better weather. Fingers crossed it stays nice for the rest of this week.  Keep reading for your homework and reminders for the coming week.

Spelling: Please complete either list dge or list ir in your spelling jotter. Each word should be written out 3 times and one creative spelling activity should also be completed for all of the words. If you choose the newspaper activity, you should only do this for 3 or 4 words.  Remember you should choose a different activity each week until you have completed all of the creative activities.

Please remember to include the date and a title (this should be the spelling rule you are learning) and ensure your presentation is completed to a high standard.  Also, please remember to complete any corrections.  This task should be returned to school for Thursday 15th September.


Book Detectives: Read chapters 17-19 (inclusive) of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  Once you have completed your reading you should summarise what you have read.  Next choose your favourite part and draw  a detailed picture.  Be ready to explain your illustration to your group members.  Please remember to choose a short paragraph that you enjoyed to read aloud to your group.

This task should be completed in your Book Detectives jotter for Wednesday 14th September.  Please remember to read your feedback from last week to help you with your next steps.

Maths:  I have set up 3 challenges on Mangahigh for you to complete. Please play each of the games and try to achieve the highest medal you can. I know many of you are enjoying these challenges however there are some of you who are NOT playing the games at all. If this continues you will be issued with worksheets to complete instead which are a lot less fun to do. Please remember anyone who is unable to access Mangahigh at home may use the IT Suite for a short time at the beginning of lunchtime.

This task is due for Friday 16th September.

Please continue to practise your tables as often as you can as we will be continuing our table challenge in class.

Topic:  You have now had your Personal Project task for a week. I will be checking with you this week to see what area of the Scottish Wars of Independence you have decided to research. Please remember to use your time wisely and do not leave everything to the last minute.

Please remember that if I can supply any resources from school you just need to ask.

Here are your reminders for the coming week.

  1. P.E. will be on Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure you have a full kit with you.
  2. Please return your consent form for our trip to Stirling Castle as soon as possible.
  3. If you have not already done so, please return your annual data check form.
  4. All homework jotters (Spelling and Book Detectives) should now be covered. If not, please do so.  If you require paper, please ask as I can supply you with some from class.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

See you on Monday.

Mrs Hughes
