Literacy Homework – write a script for a television (or radio) news report. Think about how it would be different from a newspaper report – it might help to watch / listen to one first. Pick whatever you want to report – it could be a real news story, a made up story, or you could even use a familiar story (e.g. The Three Little Pigs) and decide how this would be reported on the TV / radio. Have fun with it.


Maths Homework – Square and Prime Numbers 

Square Numbers are the product of a number multiplied by itself. i.e 49 = 7 x 7
Prime Numbers = numbers that only have itself and one as factors. i.e 13 only has 13 and 1 as factors. 


Try with the squares of the numbers between 4 and 20.

Did you find any square numbers which cannot be made by adding two prime numbers together?
