Homework Summer Term 2024

Homework for week beginning 10.6.24 handed out 14.6.24 to be returned by 19.6.24
This is a problem published by our friends at NRICH, the Cambridge University department that supports maths problem solving education. We aim to focus on problem solving skills in maths sessions every week and here is a homework to make you think!
You need to know the words: symmetry ( if you are not sure click here); rotational symmetry (this means a shape rotates around a point and the shape matches its original position at different points as it turns. Here is an example click here)  and consecutive ( means they follow on, one after the other).
The problem can be found here

In spelling this week we have been looking at synonyms and antonyms for happy/sad e.g. ecstatic/desolate  thrilled/woeful
See if you can think of pairs of synonyms and antonyms for big and small. e.g. tiny/enormous
Homework Week commencing 3.6.24

Spellings This week we collected different past tense verbs to show that someone is speaking or shouting or making vocal sounds. e.g bellowed, squealed, squawked, sighed murmered...etc.
Collect 10 past tense verbs that suggest someone is moving along e.g. walked, ran, dashed, stepped....

Homework for Wednesday the 8th May
Worksheets will be sent home for the practice of Roman Numerals and Relative Clauses
The answer sheet for the Roman Numerals is on a PDF.
Homework for Wednesday 1st May
Please continue the spelling activity from last week.
If you can spell all the words, here are a couple of further challenges:
Can you sort the list of words into their word types: noun, verb, adverb, adjective
Can you create word families with the words? E.G. develop - developed, develops, developing, development, developmental, developmentally. Are all the words in the word family the same word type? 
You will have two sheets for homework (Properties of Shape Knowledge Organiser and a Properties of Shapes worksheet). 
The challenge:
For each shape on the worksheet, write down one property. Use the knowledge organiser to help you. Once you have completed the sheet, see how much of the key vocabulary you have used from the knowledge organiser. (Tick or highlight the words you have used). The idea is to use a wide variety of vocabulary. Some of the words on the list won't be able to be used.
This shape is made up of perpendicular lines.
This shape has a pair of acute angels and a pair of obtuse angles. 
This shape has seven vertices.
Can you find the names of these shapes too? 
Welcome back to the  summer term! In Year 6, we have a busy summer ahead with lots of events but homework carries on!
If you have a maths book, please choose a calculation/arithmetic topic that you know you need to practise and get busy! If you are stuck, please ask an adult to help at home or bring it in to school so we can help you.
Revise your understanding of circles: radius, diameter and circumference. Questions 3 onwards are copied on your sheet.
Spelling: have a look at the hundred words for KS2.(Hard copy given or pdf below) How do you think you would do if you had to do a test on these?
Parliament? Environment?  Government?
Pick the ones you are finding hard and practise these. Just do 5 at a time and be sure you can spell those before trying others.
Look at the word, say it, cover it, write it and then check it. is there something that helps you remember? E.g. government has govern in it; say parliament in a silly way to help you remember the vowels in the middle - parl-i-a-ment. 
Maths. Revise your understanding of circles: radius, diameter and circumference. Questions 3 onwards are copied on your sheet.
