Our pupils will receive a parliamentary guide this week. This booklet answers questions such as ‘What is the UK parliament?’, ‘What happens at an election?’ and ‘Why do we need laws?’, as well as providing a wealth of information about the democratic process.
One homework this week will centre around the information and activities within the booklet. We also have a special parliamentary visitor leading assembly next Tuesday on the subject of government.
We are constantly amazed at the standard of homework that comes into school and were again wowed at the incredible models that are now on display having been created over the Christmas holidays. Year 4 have produced mountains, Year 5 wardrobes inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia and Year 6 Anderson shelters.
Year 5’s homework related to their ‘Stargazers’ topic is fantastic! The level of detail within their rocket models is superb and there are some extremely creative examples on show, using a variety of different materials.
This week’s reading totals were incredible across the school! Congratulations to 5AP who won the reading trophy this week and to Year 6 who averaged over 110 reads per class.
‘If you read, you succeed!’
Congratulations to 4D who have set a new record for the number of weeks that they have won the reading trophy. This week they clocked up 140 reads in their class – excellent news for their fluency rates!
We had more amazing homework from Year 5 this week, creating masks of Tutankhamun. Terrific creativity!
Year Five created some superb homework in response to the challenge of creating a 3-D model related to ‘The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe’. A huge range is on show, demonstrating a high level of creativity and ingenuity.
We are so impressed with the quality of the homework that children produce. Here is an example of a piece where a child has shown creativity when completing a research activity. Well done. Your homework wowed us all.
