Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are having a lovely weekend. and have been enjoying the glorious sunshine. This coming week will see us get back to our normal timetable now that our Rookie Rockstars concerts are over.

Here is your homework for this week. As the sun is due to keep shining I have changed our homework format for this week. Please read all areas to ensure you know what has to be completed.

Spelling: Spelling will be completed in class this week therefore there is no written homework.

Personal Reading Challenge: You have 7 weeks to reach the target you set last week. Please remember to bring your book to school as this will allow you to read it during our ERIC sessions.

As there is very little written homework this week (and because hopefully the sun will keep shining) I would like you to increase your personal reading. Please take your book outside (or somewhere different) and read for at least an extra 15 minutes each night. Please ask someone at home to sign your diary to confirm you have done this.

Please remember to record the books in your reading passport as you finish them. The passport is kept in class. Remember this is your record of the number of books you have read so far this term.

H&WB/Writing: As we are having such lovely weather at the moment, your homework is to go outside and play! I would like you to then choose one day from this week and write a short (no more than 50 words) diary extract telling me what you did on that day. Please remember to include the relevant features we have been using in class, eg. time connectives, emotive language. This will make your writing more interesting. You should then post your diary extract on the blog and I will publish them all at the end of the week. Please remember to check you have used your capital letters and punctuation correctly. If you are unable to post on the blog, please complete a paper copy. This task should be completed by Friday.

Maths: There is no written maths homework this week.

# P5H Homework and Reminders – W/B 24.4.17

Spelling: Please complete lists gh, ph  or el, il, ey  in your spelling homework jotter for Thursday. Please write out your spelling words 3 times using SaCaWaC in the same way as we do in class. Remember that part of this process is to check and correct your spelling words, too many of you handed in wrongly spelt words on Thursday. You should then choose 6 spelling words you think you can write the best sentences for, and write an up levelled sentence for each of them. This week we are again focusing on using amazing connectives in each sentence. Here are some examples for you to choose from: so, if, while, even though, because, however and unless . Please include one in each of your sentences. Remember this does not mean you forget about using ambitious vocabulary too. We are trying to use both of these to make your sentences the best they can be.

Reading: As I posted last week you will be issued your new core readers later this week and I will explain your homework once they have been issued.

Personal Reading Challenge: We have now re-started our Personal Reading Challenge. You have 9 weeks left to reach the target you set last week. Please remember to bring your book to school as this will allow you to read it during ERIC time. Keep recording the books you have read in your Reading Passports so you can see how close you are getting to your target.

Maths:  Your homework can be found using the links below. This should be completed in your maths homework jotter and handed in on Thursday.

Good afternoon everyone! I hope you have been having a fabulous Easter break. I am looking forward to hearing all of your stories during check-in tomorrow.

I’m not sure how we got here so quickly but Term 4 is upon us already! We have another very busy term ahead of us and I am sure you will show the same enthusiasm that you have shown so far during Primary 5.

Spelling: Units 3 and 32 should be completed for Friday. As always, each word should be written out three times and an uplevelled sentence should be written for each spelling rule word. Please remember to consider your VCOP in each sentence.

This week I would like you to continue focusing on using  ambitious connectives in each sentence again. Here are some examples: before, as well as, however, also, although and after. Try to include one in each sentence. Some of you are doing very well with this. Remember this does not mean you forget about uplevelling your openers and vocabulary. We are trying to use all of these together to make your sentences the best they can be.

Reading:  A new core reader will be issued on Thursday.  The main focus is to ensure you are reading aloud to someone at home. Please remember to use expression where needed. Once again, there will be no written homework as we will continue to complete our comprehension tasks for the core readers in class. As always, if there is any vocabulary you are unsure of, please take a note of it and we will discuss it in class on Thursday.

Last term I introduced the reading feedback form which should be completed by the person hearing you read aloud. We will be continuing with this during term 4. New forms will be issued this week.

Personal Reading Challenge: We will be continuing with our Personal Reading Challenge this term. This was a great success last term and I was very impressed at the number of books being read. Watch this space for some interesting information regarding term 3’s challenge.

This week you will be setting a new target. The aim is to ensure you are reading regularly (not just during our ERIC sessions) and you will most definitely achieve success by the end of term. Please remember to bring your book to school as this will allow you to read it during our ERIC sessions.

Please remember to record the books in your reading passport as you finish them. The passport is kept in class. Remember this is your record of the number of books you have read so far this term.
