English Homework

Spelling Homework

Please practise your spellings on Spelling Shed or any way that you learn them best.

Reading Homework

Your homework this week is on the same two chapters as last week, however the questions this week are harder as they use inference skills.  This is where you need to look at the words in the passage and think what clues they give about characters and situations.  Thinking about if a word has positive or negative intent can be helpful here.

As usual, you can read this on your own, with someone or someone can read it to you.  It would definitely be worth re-reading the pages before you do this homework.


Grammar Homework:

Please use your Grammar Book and do pages 9,10 and 11.

These focus on verbs and the words that go with them in sentences.

Some handy reminders below:

Verb - something you can do eg jump, eat, sleep, do, have, be

Subject - person that DOES the verb

Object - there isn't always an object in each sentence but it is the 'victim of the verb' eg Tom (subject) kicked (verb) the (determiner) ball (object).


Modal verbs - tell you how likely something is to happen - this is sometimes called 'degrees of possibility'. 

Modal verbs include: should, could, would, might, may, must, shall, will, ought, can

and also their antonyms - eg couldn't, wouldn't etc.


Maths Homework:

Number, Ratio and Algebra book pg 14 and 15 please

Factors, Multiples and Primes

This is good revision and there are some handy hints below:

Factors - you x these together to make a number; they can be divided into a number equally - remember when we made factor bugs?  They are always equal to or less than the target number.

eg 10 - factors = 1, 10, 2, 5

Multiples - these are numbers in the target number's times tables - they go on FOREVER and are equal to or greater than the target number

eg 10 - multiples = 10, 100, 1000, 30000 

Primes - are numbers that only have 2 factors - themselves and 1 - they are factor slugs!

eg 17 = factors = 1, 17 so it is prime

2 - only even prime number - factors - 1, 2

1 - NOT a prime number as it only has 1 factor.... which is 1.
