Term 2 Week 5 Homework


WALT: Learn words from essential words list and extension word list.

Learn the 10 spelling words for the week. Practice learning them everyday. Copy and complete the grid below for each word.
WALT: To find compatible numbers for 100.

Compatible numbers are two numbers that add together to make a tidy number. E.g 45 + 55 = 100.
Use the grid below to find 10 pairs of compatible numbers that equal 100.Challenge! Make your own grid of numbers for another tidy number like 500 or 1000. Get someone at home to find 10 pairs from your grid.


You must read for at least 15 minutes each night. Record your reading in the table below. What was the complication or problem the characters had to solve in your book?
This is an important week for the preparation of your speech. Your task this week is to start compiling all your ideas into the structure of a speech. You need to:
  • Write all your ideas into paragraphs (Remember to think of the big idea of every paragraph so your ideas have a logical sequence)
  • Write an introduction to grab the attention of your audience,
  • Write a conclusion to finish your speech. (Refer back to your speech hamburger sheet)
  • Once it is written out in sequence, try reading it aloud to someone at home and have them time you. Is it between 3 and 5 minutes? If it is too short you will need to add more content. If it is too long you might need to take some content out. Remember, as you practice more your speech will get faster to deliver so its better to have more than less.
You will have time in class this week to discuss ideas with your teacher and class mates so check with your teacher to see when is a good day to bring your speech in to share.

Check the timetable in the post below to see the plan for the rest of this term. This will give you an idea of when you will be presenting your speech to your class.

Good luck!
