Homework - 09.10.2020
Good afternoon Year Six,
Here is this week's homework. As it is Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah this weekend, I have provided a lighter load than normal to allow you time to enjoy this special time of year.
I have attached the handwriting sheet we complete in the classroom. For each word, you need to copy the word in your neatest cursive handwriting, find the definition and write it in a sentence. You do not need to print this sheet as you can write the words, definitions and sentences in your homework book. Make sure your sentences are of a Year Six standard, with more adventurous vocabulary and structures, and they are correctly punctuated.
I have included two sheets: the first with hyphens joining a prefix ending in a vowel with a root word beginning with a vowel should be completed by all but two children in the class and the second sheet with homophones and near homophones by those who usually have alternative spellings provided.
I'm glad you enjoyed reading the E-book last week. I was impressed by the depth of your answers in our reading session yesterday. I have chosen a different book for you this week - a non-fiction text this time. Don't forget to think about and answer the questions for you to think about while you read, after you have read and complete the quick quiz.
The 'My Class Login' details are:
MrsSmyth (make sure you use capital letters and no space)
Use the link below to access the book 'Maggie Aderin-Pocok: Space Scientist'.
When you have read the book, answer the questions in your homework book. Think about the level of detail required from you as a Year Six reader. Include evidence from the text to back up your answer. Make sure you read some of the book to an adult or older sibling as it is important to practise your fluency skills too.
We will explore your responses to the text next Thursday.

I am really pleased to see so many more of you logging into Times Table Rock Stars. Remember, even 15 minutes a week will help you to improve your speed and fluency, which in turn, will help you to achieve more in so many areas of maths.
This week, I would like you to write a paragraph or two summarising Titanic's voyage. You must include both passive and active sentences. Think about all we learnt in class and my expectations for you as a Year Six writer. Punctuation, spelling and grammar must be accurate. I have included a poster reminding you of the key features of active and passive form.
If you usually complete alternative tasks in the classroom, then please write a paragraph or two summarising Titanic's voyage using past tense verbs accurately. You must use the correct sentence punctuation.
Ivrit and RE
Don't forget to keep an eye out for homework from Mrs Halter, Mrs Cohen and Mrs Hensman. Their work can be completed in the back of your homework book.
Remember: an adult should make a coment in your planner in the subjects box as to how you got on with your homework when you have completed it. Spellings and reading in the English box, TTRS and maths in the Maths box and RE or IVRIT in the others box. General and pastoral comments can be written in the parent comment box on the opposite page.
Have a great weekend. I will see you Monday for another busy and fun week in Year Six. Don't forget your swimming kits.
Take care and be safe.
