Can you use a metaphor to describe a character from clockwork? e.g. Dr Kalemius' were caverns of darkness.

 

Can you use a simile to describe a character from clockwork? e.g. Gretl's heart was as pure as gold. 

 

Can you use a relative clause in a sentence about a character? e.g. Karl, who was incredibly lazy, hadn't created a clock piece after all. 

 

Can you use personification to describe the setting? (Remember, this is when you give human characteristics to something that it not human.) e.g. The moon was resting in the midnight sky as it shone down on the town of Glockenheim. 

 

Well done for another amazing week, Cedar Class. 

 

Have a fantastic weekend

Homework 02.10.2020

email to cedar@newmoston.manchester.sch.uk

 

Spellings:

 

Miss Swapp's group: 

 

1. calendar 

2. caught 

3. centre 

4. century 

5. certain 

 

English

 

I would like you to make a list of the key events of Clockwork so far in order! Think carefully about who the characters are and what they have been doing. Don't worry about getting this absolutely correct as this is what our focus is going to be next week. 

 

I have written what I think are the first 3 key events to get you started:

 

1. The characters are waiting for Fritz to come and tell his story. 

2. Karl does not want to join in because he is angry at himself for not making a clock piece. 

3. Fritz begins to tell his story. Everybody is scared. 

 

Continue this list until you reach the point where Gretl says the secret word that makes Sir Ironsoul come to life. It doesn't matter if your classmates have more or less events than you. This is simply to help you with next week's task. 

 

Maths 

 

I have attached 2 documents below, focusing on multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. Complete 1 sheet from each of these, the sheets get gradually harder so select your difficulty level carefully. 

 

Have a fantastic weekend every body! I hope you've had as good a week as I have. 

 

Love, 

Miss Swapp

Homework 18.09.20 

 

English

 

We want to hear your opinion of Phillip Pullman's 'Clockwork: All Wound Up'!  Write a review of the story so far.

 

Consider the following questions: 

 

Are you enjoying the story? Why/why not?

What has been your favourite part?

Were there any parts that shocked/scared you?

Would you recommend it to a friend? Why?

What do you think is about to happen next? (Is Karl going to steal Sir Iron Soul and pass him off as his own work to avoid embarrassment? Is Dr Kalmenius truly evil or is he trying to help Karl? If we think that Gretl is the girl on the front cover, how is she going to become intertwined with the story?)

 

Maths

 

I have attached your Maths homework underneath. We'd like you to focus on multiplication, as this is something you expressed that you struggled with this week!

 

Choose a multiplication sheet that you feel most comfortable with! Don't worry, you don't have to complete both. However, if you choose to challenge yourself by multiplying by 2 digits, there are some really useful Youtube videos out there to help you, including: https://www.google.com/search?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVYwunbpMHA

 

Remember to email your hard work to me at cedar@newmoston.manchester.sch.uk! 

 

Love,

Happy Friday!!

 

This week, your homework is to practise your column (written) addition and subtraction. I have attached two documents below, one for each method. Please make your way through these sheets, you can copy the questions down on some paper so there's no need for you to print :) 

 

Take a picture of your completed homework and send it to me at cedar@newmoston.manchester.sch.uk so I can see all your hard work. If you've tried really hard and you still find the homework too tricky, email me and we'll see what we can do. 

 

Don't forget to practise your spellings, read three times a week and log reading in your diaries!

 

Love, 

 

Miss Swapp x

For English this week I would like you to choose a character from the story "Clockwork".

Fritz- the story teller,

Gretl- the barmaid,

Herr Ringlemann- the clockmaker,

Karl- the apprentice clockmaker

Dr Kalmenius

 

Thinking about what we have learnt about the characters I would like you to write a character description for ONE of the characters, you may also draw a picture to accompany your character description. 

 

 

Hi everyone, 

 

I hope you're not too exhausted after your first week back! 

 

Your homework this week is to practise your timestables. I would like you to focus on: 

 

3 x timestables 

4 x timestables 

5 x timestables 

6 x timestables 

 

I would also like you to write a paragraph all about your first week back at school! You could include how you felt on your first day, what we did together in class and how you feel now that we're back into the swing of things. 

 

This paragraph can be emailed to me at cedar@newmoston.manchester.sch.uk. This is where you will be sending all your homework to for the time being. Remember, homework will be set every Friday. 

 

See you on Monday!
