Arithmetic Book pg 10,11, 12 - times tables and factors and multiples. (There is a reminder about what these are on the homework webpage from 24/11)


English Homework

Punctuation Book - pg 13 - Apostrophes for possession.  An apostrophe can be used to show when something 'belongs' to something else.  Generally the apostrophe goes between the end of the noun and the 's' eg the bike's tyre was flat.  

If the word is plural, it will go after the plural noun eg the horses' oats were munched in seconds.  More than one horse ate the oats!

The children's coats were in the floor.  The noun is children so the apostrophe comes after that noun.

Grammar Book - pg 10 - verbs.  Remember verbs show you that an action is being done.
