Homework – September

Please click on the link below which will take you to the notes. We will have gone over these together in class. Your activities are due in on Friday. Do let us know if you are having any problems, so that we can do our best to help you.


From Mrs Keith : 

This week, your first task for me is to double-check your bridges sheet from last week, if it is still in your folder. The ‘Punctuation Police’ (i.e. Mrs Keith!) were kept busy last week spotting that many P5/6s had committed crimes – finding where boys or girls had forgotten that two part names need capital letters on both parts e.g. Tyne Bridge.

Please also check that you have done the following, which was part of your instructions on last week’s set…

  • Have you drawn a line, using a ruler or straight edge of some sort, from the pictures of the bridges to their dotted locations?
  • Have you written the names of the bridges below the pictures – remembering where capital letters are needed?

Your second task is the German vocabulary sheet on numbers. This shouldn’t take you long at all. We have heard the numbers and you are all doing really well, even managing the numbers from 1 – 100 on Friday. Now let’s look at how they are written. I think this would take you five minutes.

Your third task is to watch this short video clip of another bridge. This one is very different to the Queensferry Crossing! It is in Northern Ireland and is called the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge. I wonder if Miss McAvoy has crossed it because Muckle Moo and I crossed it in August, with Muckle Moo being in my bag as no way was I crossing without holding on with both hands! Our certificate is on the Muckle Moo wall display.

Please answer these questions in your jotter, in sentences, after watching the clip.

  1. How high above the water is this bridge?
  2. Who built the bridge?
  3. Would YOU cross the bridge? Tell me why or why not.

You might also like to google ‘Carrick-a-Rede Old Photograph’ and see why there is no way I would have crossed it if it had still been like that! That’s just a wee extension task, though.
