Welcome to Y5's homework page where we will share your tasks with you.
Please check your child's pink homework book where you'll find homework instructions on a yellow sticker.
On some occasions, they may have a worksheet stuck in to complete.
Homework will also be shared on this webpage in case they forget their book or they are off on Monday and need to catch up.
I will also share video links, tips, or information to help support learning.
Starbooks reading challenge:
I have challenged the children to do their reading homework every week to receive a star stamp in their homework books.
If they achieve enough loyalty stamps over each half term, they can use these for a Starbooks treat.
This is like the loyalty card scheme to get a free drink of a well-known coffee franchise - of a similar sounding name.
If your child struggles with reading, then they are allowed to read the class book with an adult or older sibling.
So let's get reading!
Monday 14th September
Spelling: Mrs Woodburn's spelling group - look in your homework book for your words.
- Look over your test on Friday and practice the ones you got wrong. Perhaps think about how you can improve your learning by perhaps writing them out more times than you did or by trying a different method.
- Learn this week's words below for a test on Friday, get someone to test you often during the week. I used to test my boys whilst walking to and home from school or in the car driving to football.
- You can practice all of your spellings on https://spellingframe.co.uk/
Maths: Mrs Woodburn's maths group - look in your homework book for your times table practice sheet instead.
This week we have been recapping rounding a number to the nearest 10, 100 and 1,000.
If you are stuck, then read the information below to help.
1. Round these numbers to the nearest 10
a) 383 b) 2,649
a) 739 b) 4,489
a) 5,689 b) 8,357
We have used this rounding rhyme below to help instruct us on how to do this. Below is an example of how we use this in class.
63 rounded to the nearest 10 =
Find the number in the Tens which is 6 (I ask the children to circle it), look next door in the Ones and it's a 3 (I ask them to underline it). 5 or higher add 1 more doesn't apply as 3 is less than 5, 4 or less let it rest applies because 3 is less than 4 so I let the 6 (that you circled) rest. Numbers in front - there aren't any in this example, numbers behind zero's your name so we change the 3 to a 0. The answer is 60.
68 rounded to the nearest 10 =
Find the number in the Tens which is 6 (I ask the children to circle it), look next door in the Ones and it's an 8 (I ask them to underline it). 5 or higher add 1 more applies as 8 is higher than 5, so I add 1 more to the 6 (that you circled) which is 7. Numbers in front - there aren't any in this example, numbers behind zero's your name so we change the 8 to a 0. The answer is 70.
If rounding to the nearest 100, do the same but you find the number in the hundreds column and circle it, look next door into the Tens and underline it. You either add 1 more to the hundreds or let it rest. Tens and Ones change to 00's.
Rounding to the nearest 1000 would be the same method, you find the number in the Thousands and circle it, look next door at the Hundreds and underline it. Depending on this number you either add 1 more to the Thousands or let it rest. Change the Hundreds, Tens and Ones to 000s.
Always check answers by asking yourself where the number would be on a number line and which 10's, 100's or 1,000s is it closer to.
Mrs Woodburn's spelling group - read for at least 20 minutes (ask an adult to help you) and write a sentence about what you've read.
Rest of the class - read Chapter 3 of You Are Awesome and write in your homework book an explanation of why Taxi drivers are better than bus drivers at the test.
