Term 4 Homework 6L

You have completed your work on writing a movie review. Now you are going to write a movie review using the different headings and ideas discussed in class and on the review sheet you worked on.

Make sure you use capital letters and inverted commas for the name of the movie. ie ‘Indiana And The Temple Of Doom.

Find out the director and the names of the main actors. You must explain the plot of the movie and the reason why you think the producer wanted to make the movie (the message). Remember not to look at just the surface meaning of the film. Think of the other messages the author may be trying to convey.

What did you rate the movie? Include this as well.

(Upload your results onto Google Classrooms.) Check with your teacher.


Over the holidays you may read a newspaper or magazine article that might be of interest to your peers and that you’d like to share with them.

Take a good quality photo of the article, bring a hard copy of it, or perhaps locate a digital copy of the article and then bring them to school to share.

The teachers can find articles for you to read, but we’d prefer you to find references that ‘you’ are interested in.

Have a great holiday everyone.

Inquiry-Tuning in

2. Which item would you be least likely cope without in your house? Give your reasons.


3. In your own words tell us what you already know about electricity. You are not required to do any research. This is simply what you think you already know.
Here are some clues………..How does it travel, what are the dangers associated with using it, who invented it, does it run out, how is it made, can you store it?

Remember to:

  •  Rule your lines in red pen. Use the full width of the page!
  • Make sure that the spelling of each item is correct.
  • That your work is NEATLY presented.

Week 2 Homework


Find a piece of writing or an experience that appeals to you. It could be a chapter of a book (or a whole book) that you have read, an article from a newspaper, a sporting fixture/report, a story that you have heard, an enjoyable trip you went on in the holidays, etc.

Your task is to summarise this:

  • it should only have key points of interest
  • there should be minimal but clear detail
  • it should be written in the order it happened
  • names/key information should be included
  • opinions and reflections are not included
  • it should be brief (concise)
  • no major information should be excluded
  • Remember
    1. Read and understand the text carefully.
    2. Think about the purpose of the text.
    3. Select the relevant information.
    4. Find the main ideas – what is important.
    5. Change the structure of the text. You do notcopy parts of the text.
    6. Rewrite the main ideas in complete sentences.
    7. Check your work. Reread your ideas to check you have covered it all.



You will have identified a times table that you need to work on. 6s, 7s, 8s, or 9s are the most likely ones that you are needing to practise.

Write out the times table in your book. (eg is below)

0 x 6 = 0

1 x 6 = 6

2 x 6 = 12     etc

Identify the ones that give you the most trouble.

Highlight them with a marker.

Practise these difficult ones during with week with a friend/family member. See if you can learn them so that you can answer them automatically.

Good luck.

    I did my homework…

    ⭐My conference went really well because I had a clear voice and got through the work in my folder that I needed to show my parents. It also went well because I had fun doing it and got to show my parents the slide show and talk about what I need to improve on and what I’m good at.

    ⭐In the first semester I did really well on useing my iPad as a learning tool and spelling because I am a confident writer. Because I read a lot I am good at spelling but I could improve

  3. June 24th, 2013 at 7:02 am      Reply Teegan Says:

    Oops I didn’t finish it! Here’s the rest.

    Spelling and using harder words.

    Wish= I found some of the maths we did challenging and my goals for next semester are to Learn my times tables, practise maths at home and to keep my reading diary app up to date. I would also like to improve my mathletics because I haven’t been on mathletics much.

    My conference went well and my mum enjoyed seeing all the work I had done.
    In the 1st semester I did well with my speech and my spelling improved.
    Identifying the main idea is something I find challenging and I need to practice more of these in the 2nd semester.
    My goals for the 2nd semester is to improve my joining writing, keep practising my timestables especially the 7, 8 and 9’s, keep my reading app up to date and doing more mathletics.

    I hadn’t had any practise so I think I did quite well with my conference. I wish I had some practise so I could of tried to improve it a little. I wanted to get a bit more done during my conference. Sadly Ms Lovelace was running a little late!

    I don’t like West Coast supporters. They are booing Jobe Watson. It just shows how immature they are.

    Star: The work that I’m good at is my times tables. I’ve been getting them all correct this year except for one! I enjoy the long multiplication sums and the multiplication strips. This is the best thing I’ve been doing.

    Star: My next thing I am good at is my handwriting skills. I can do cursive writing and I can form my letters correctly. I can also do small handwriting! My parents are proud of my improvement and so am I.
    Wish: My goal in the classroom is to learn my fractions and decimals by the end if this year. My Netball goal is to pass the ball quicker and to zig zag to get the ball. My Bat tennis goal is to pass the ball strongly and to focus on the ball.

    Dear Miss L
    Some examples of how people can make smart choices online are:
    – don’t give out any personal information,
    – don’t talk to strangers
    – always know what you are agreeing to online.

    I was just on the blog and I was looking at one of the homework sheets. For Term 3 Week 1 you have the wrong homework sheet. 🙂 🙂

      Dear Matthew
      I want you to look at the book report you did. Are there any problems with it? Have you punctuated it well and checked the spelling. Have a look at the other ones on our grade blog. Are you happy with the amount that you have written?
      I have read your response but have not changed the errors. That is your responsibility. Please try to improve the amount you write and check it before you send it to me next time.
      from Miss L
