It has been super to see how many of you are reading and are thoroughly enjoying the books you are currently reading, keep up the great work! Reading is a part of your weekly homework. Ideally you should be spending around ten to fifteen minutes each day reading your book. Even though you are now becoming more independent readers, you may still want to discuss your reading with an adult at home, or perhaps even try and persuade them to read to you sometimes!
We should see evidence of what you have been reading, along with a brief comment, in your reading journal, which should be in school every day. If you are struggling to find something to read then talk to us and we will do our best to help. If we can see you are struggling to make time to read at home, we will take some time to discuss this with you during a break or lunchtime so we can help you to overcome this issue.
Times tables are a fundamental part of maths and if you have rapid recall of these, you will find many elements of maths much easier. To help with this we expect you to practise your times tables every week. For maths homework this week, we have set up a soundcheck and battle on Timestable Rockstars. Get rockin'!
This week we have been exploring the world of classifying animals and the work of Carl Linnaeus. This has helped us to begin developing our own hybrid animals in the style of the 'Arctic Antonemy.' For homework this week we would like you to do task 1. If you have already finished this in school, then do task 2. You do not have to both.
Finish researching your hybrid animal using the planning sheet you started in school.
Draw and label your own hybrid animal in the style of Charles Darwin. Ensure your labelling explains how and why your animal has adapted.
If you have not been in school this week, we have attached the hybrid animal planning sheet and useful links which the children have started/completed in school.
