Current homework - Astronaut Presentation - due in Monday 27th March

This week the details of your homework are in Google Classroom. The task is to carry out research on an astronaut of your choice, excluding Neil Armstrong as we have already learnt about him, and create a presentation using Google Slides. The focus this time is on images and note making: your presentation will have very little writing and you will use your notes to help you talk to the audience. 


I'm looking forward to hearing your wonderful presentations. Good luck!

Previous Homework - Presentations on Endangered Animals - due in Wednesday 7th December


This week's homework involves preparing a presentation using Google Slides in Google Classroom. The letter is a step-by-step guide of how to access Google Classroom. I have been through this with the children. Below are several websites you may find helpful; the links are also in Google Classroom. (There may be some teething issues so please bear with me!) The last PDF shows you what you need on each slide.

Previous Homework - Arithmetic Practice - due in Wednesday 23rd November


This week, you have been given an arithmetic booklet in which to practise working at speed using mental methods, jottings or written methods. I have annotated the booklets to give you some help and remind you which methods you could use. There may be some questions you are unsure of; this is fine as we haven't covered the whole curriculum yet. Do what you can in 30 minutes. (Year 5, you have 1a and 1b in one booklet. If you whizz 1a, have a go at 1b.)

Here are some videos to help you with some of the arithmetic questions.
