Good afternoon everyone! I hope you are having a great weekend so far. Homework is now well under way and the standard is certainly improving from week to week. Keep it up!  Here is your homework for the coming week. As always, our reminders are at at the bottom of the post (we have quite a few this week).

Please remember, if you are unsure of any aspect of your homework, to ask in class as soon as possible. You may also leave a comment on the blog for me. Please DO NOT leave any questions until the day your homework is due as this will be too late.

Spelling:  You should complete either list 21 or list 32 in your jotter. Please remember each word (12 in total) should be written out twice in your jotter. A further two words with the same spelling rule should be found and recorded in your jotter. Choose 5 of your spelling words and write an uplevelled sentence for each of them.

Please ensure you are including a date and title at the beginning of your work. Your title should be your list number. This task should be completed and returned to school by Friday.

Reading:  Book Detectives homework was issued on Thursday and should be completed for this Thursday (7th). Please click here for details of the task.

Personal Reading Challenge: You now have 6 weeks left of our Personal Reading Challenge. You are aiming to read the number of books you decided on at the beginning of term. Please remember you should be reading your personal reader at home, not just during ERIC time. Once you complete a book, please remember to record it in our class reading record.

Please bring your book to school as this will allow you to read it during our ERIC sessions.

Maths:  I was very impressed at how well the maths homework was completed this week. Keep an eye on our blog for some examples of very good work.

Please remember ALL workings should be shown (this will allow me to see any mistakes you may have made in your calculations) and a sentence answer should be given, eg. There are 258 boys in Bishopton Primary School. Please date your work and give it a title.

Please click the relevant group below to access your homework. This task should be completed in your maths homework jotter for Friday.

See you on Monday.
