Theme/English/Science

Next week is Science Week. Your homework will be to work on your science project. You must follow the guidance carefully. 

 

Remember

 

  • Presentation is very important
    • A visitor to your table needs to be able to see, read and understand what your project is about
    • Avoid scraps of paper, multicoloured lettering in felt-tip, silly fonts, scruffy cardboard
    • There is no need to make an American style 3 part 'Science Fair' display board
    • Do write or print clearly, include diagrams, pictures and models
  • The science
    • Make sure that you say what you have found out
    • You must be able to talk about the science behind your project
    • Include some information about the scientists who discovered/worked on this in the past
  • Keep it simple
    • The best projects will be a very simple idea, backed by good research, presented clearly and neatly
  • Don't plagiarise
    • Make sure you write down all the sources of your information, including any books and websites
    • Do not copy and paste information - we will know.

This is a snapshot of the publisher document at the top of this page.

 

Some Key Pointers for your science project

 

Not all science enquiry is an experiment. There are three main ways in which you can carry out some scientific enquiry.

 

  • Research
    • look up what is known about your subject
    • find out information from different sources and put it together in a way that appeals to the reader
  • Observation
    • notice what is happening with events, plants, animals or people at different times and under different circumstances
    • make notes
    • write up what you saw and your hypothesis about what you think is going on
  • Experiment
    • This should relate to something you've done in class.
    • Test something, controlling the variables
    • Present your results and conclusions

 

  • Don't look up 'Science Fair' on the Internet for ideas but do go to the British Science Week page and see what it's all about. 
  • Avoid demonstrations which lack any scientific ideas and knowledge. 
  • Don't bring in things that will be messy - if you have a messy experiment, do it at home and write about it instead. 
  • Don't do any practical science at home without telling an adult exactly what you are doing.
  • Keep it simple. The best science projects will be based on one simple idea, well presented. This should not involve any inconvenience for your parents!
  • Don't forget to use IT.

 

Reading

 

Continue to read your fiction book. Make sure you have this every day in school.

 

Read and respond to at least two texts on ReadTheory

Write down the titles in your homework book.

Many of Beowulf's kinsmen were there to accompany Beowulf on Beowulf's mission but the youngest was one of Beowulf's relatives, Wiglaf. Beowulf had given Beowulf's relative some land.

This is a slightly different homework this week.

Imagine you are in a story where you go into space in a rocket. Write one paragraph (up to 300 words) that describes what you can see out of the porthole (window). You might be near a planet, or a nebula or be looking at the stars or some other cosmic objects. Give detail about shapes and colours and your feelings. No aliens!

Week 7

18-10-18

 

Reading and writing

Your reading this week is a little different. You need to find out all about the famous person you have chosen for our Cool Britannia Day. This needs to be a person from British history. Look up the person and then write a paragraph in your own words describing who they were, when they lived and what they did. Make sure you do not copy exactly from a book or the Internet. This is called plagiarism. Change some of the words, use slightly different sentences, or read it first and then try to write it without saying it in exactly the same way.

 

Read your paragraph out loud at least 3 times. If you wish, you may record your voice and upload it to your google drive (optional).

 

Be prepared to read to us on the theme day.

Reading

Continue to do the reading homework. Don't forget to record a short section in your homework book and make sure you read aloud to an adult.

Do the editing and rewrite of the unpunctuated passage. Be as accurate as you can. It would be worth getting someone to read through your rewrite to see if you have missed out any punctuation.

Week 1

6/9/18

 

The focus this week is on reading. There will be no grammar or 'Mathletics'.

 

Your spelling homework is in the 'spelling' folder.

 

There is a link to a document describing the reading task, at the top of this page. This is the same document that has been stuck into your homework book. 

 

It is important that you do this task properly and take care with it.

 

The activity this week is as follows:

 

Make sure you have read every day of the week for at least 20 minutes.

 

At the back of your homework book, write the date and the title and author of the book you are reading.

 

Write the following in the front of your book

  • the date at the top left of the page
  • the book title (this time)
  • the page number you are on
  • The sentence (or up to 4 sentences) that you last read

 

Check the sentence that you have written. Have you copied the spelling and the punctuation exactly? Is it in your best handwriting?

 

Now read aloud to a parent or responsible adult. This should be 1/2 to 1 page of something you have already read to yourself.

 

Discuss what you have read.

 

Get the adult to sign your homework book. They are welcome to write any comments.
