SPAG homework due Friday 6th March
Page 15 (coordinating conjunctions). Success criteria at the top of the page. We have done lots of work on conjunctions and are now beginning to look at classifying these as either coordinating or subordinating conjunctions. We would like children to watch the following Youtube video before completing these tasks:

It is aimed at Y6 children but does an excellent job at explaining this concept! Children are also welcome to use the internet to research, if they feel this will help them.

Maths homework due Friday 6th March

Page 20 (prime numbers and prime factors). We encourage children to think of our number fun song for primes (attached below) to help them. For the prime factors questions, children simply split the numbers further down into factors to help them more! For example, 27 = 9 x 3. The 9 itself can also be split into 3 x 3. Therefore, we could say that 27 = 3 x 3 x 3. We could also say that 80 = 20 x 4, which could be split into the primes of 5 x 2 x 2 (20) and 2 x 2 (4).

Comprehension task – 2 minute reads! We hope everyone is continuing to enjoy their work on fluency. We have once again sent a sheet home with children and explained the task. It is not a very time consuming task but we hope this new approach could make all the difference! The sheet itself has all the relevant information on it! We have now added a few quick comprehension questions to this task.

Plus weekly reading of home reading book (4 x per week minimum).

Children also have logins for Conquer Maths, Read Theory and ‘Times Table Rockstars’, which they are more than welcome to explore at home! We will continue to give out our weekly certificates for using Read Theory, Conquer Maths and Times Table Rockstars!

Many thanks for your continued support,

Y5 team
