  1. Homework Week 9

    March 25, 2019 by Mr Richo

    1. Writing

    Turn to page 145 in your planner. Read the PUNCTUATION section.

    Your task is to write at least two paragraphs using all of the punctuation mentioned.

    Topic suggestions: A Sports Report, A dinner conversation at school camp or I played a great game that day.

    or….. make up your own topic.


    2. Inquiry

    We want you to practice interpreting geographical information and data in maps.

    You will need to look up a map topic. eg. South Africa resources map, China population map or Canada water distribution map. All three of these searches will provide you with map images. (Choose countries that you are interested in perhaps.)

    Make a copy of the map you want.(draw or download)

    Describe what the map is showing you.

    It’s pretty open ended. You can take this as far as you want. You can do 1 map or more if you like.

    Does your map have a key? Are there different colour shadings – what do they show?

    You are analysing what you are looking at. It is similar to the work we did in class when we studied Literacy, Water quality and Food.

    Our first task is spelling.

    Time to practise the silent final ‘E’ words discussed in class. Use the template to fill in words in each job category. Get new words from a book you are reading or online reading that you are doing.

    The template is below if you want to use it. Put this task into your green even homework book.

    silent final e

    The second task is times tables.

    Choose two tables that you are not confident that you know. Practice (maybe write them twice). Try to get someone at home to test you. (Put your practice tables into your homework book.)

    The third task is multiplication. 

    We want you to set out two problems for practice. eg. Easier level is 23 X 46. Harder is 323 X 625

    (Make up your own even harder challenge if you want.)

    Focus on neat setting out, red lines for answers and lining up your numbers in correct place value order.

    Complete in your homework book.


    Spend a little time completing some Mathletics tasks.
