Year 5 Individual Homework
Due in Thursday 21st September
This week in project we have been connecting our knowledge of the Titanic to our writing in literacy. We are practising our writing skills and applying these to an information text about the Titanic (thank you for working so hard on finding facts for last week’s homework – they have been really useful!). Please can you practise these speed words for your homework this week.
- Use your different methods to practise the spellings
- Remember which words are proper nouns and need capital letters
We have been looking at expression in reading over the past two weeks and how we can make our reading sound more exciting. Please watch the clip of Michael Rosen reading his famous ‘chocolate cake’ poem with expression. Your task is to use his technique to practise reading a part of the same poem out loud to someone else using your expression skills you have been working on.
- Facial expression
- Small actions
Chocolate Cake – Poem by Michael Rosen
I love chocolate cake.
And when I was a boy
I loved it even more.
Sometimes we used to have it for tea
and Mum used to say,
‘If there’s any left over
you can have it to take to school
tomorrow to have at playtime.’
And the next day I would take it to school
wrapped up in tin foil
open it up at playtime
and sit in the corner of the playground
you know how the icing on top
is all shiny and it cracks as you
bite into it,
and there’s that other kind of icing in
and it sticks to your hands and you
can lick your fingers
and lick your lips
oh it’s lovely.
