Homework for Friday 26th May

We are starting to prepare for our End of Year Performance next term. For this week’s homework we would like you to choose a famous person from any time in history. I want you to create a biographical speech about that person to read to the rest of the class. [You will be able to read from the paper your speech is on].  We want to know who it is, why they are famous and most of all why you chose to speak about that person. Make the speech interesting and full of facts.

The challenge is that we will be timing the speeches to see whose lasts for closest to one minute. So get the stop watches on and start timing.

This will be the first part of our auditions to see who might be interested in a main part in the production.  However, all children are expected to complete this homework and read out their speech to the class.

Topic Homework to be handed in by Friday 9th June 2017

Half term’s fun topic based homework is to work on the geographical area of weakness we have noticed within the whole class.  We wish you to try and record as many European countries as you can along with their capital cities (researching on computer and in books is perfectly acceptable).  As a bonus for display it would be even better if you can find out other information for each country such as major rivers, mountains, language, currency and flag.  This can be presented in list form or even as a table.  It does not need to be complete sentences of facts about the countries.

Please also continue to learn your times tables as we are having a final push on these before the end of the year when we will be giving out certificates for the challenge level you have achieved.

Spellings

We will be continuing to look at the Year 6 spellings in class and tested on Friday:
