This week's homework is P.E!
At school, we have been measuring our baseline data for some circuit training exercises. This weekend, we'd like you to do this at home with your family!
For example, measure your Mum's standing jump and record it. How many press-ups can your sister or brother do in 2 minutes? How long can Dad do the wall sit for? Take some measurements...have fun...record the data in your homework books (perhaps, in a table!).
Enjoy! Mrs M & Mrs E

This week's homework, as part of our Discovery Learning, is to research the life of Queen Victoria and create a biography which they can then use/access during school time learning. It would be preferable for the children to have a hard copy of their homework, but we can print this off in school if that is helpful.
10 House Points will be given for this week's homework, assuming it meets our usual, high expectations!!
You may find the weblink below a good place to start
Please bring your homework back into school by Tuesday 16th January.
Next week, we will be starting our DT Project. In preparation for their learning, this week's homework is to research native birds and find out about their feeding habit, as well as where they like to nest. Children could also research which birds they are most likely to see locally.
The information could be presented as a fact file or non-chronological report.
This website is a good starting place
All pupils are to write a letter to either Mrs Merrett (Y6) or Mrs Edwards (Y5) to apply for the role of Junior Road Safety Officer. Even if the children don't really want the role, we would think this is a good, real-life opportunity to write a letter of application!
Letters to be in my Tuesday please
We will ensure that the letters from children who do not wish to be considered for the role are not included in the final selection.
This week's homework is to complete your entry for the Staedtler Sketching Stars competition. Do not glue your entry into your book - it is two-sided! Please complete you artwork, put your name on it and return to school by Tuesday. Good luck!
The winner will receive:
The runners up will get the chance to win:
This week's homework is to sketch or draw a man-made object, using the sketching and shading techniques we looked at in ART this week.
For more hints and tips (and the 'Austin's Butterfly' video!), see the Awesome Art page
We look forward to seeing your artwork!

This week's homework - linking to our learning in English this week - is to find a selection of examples which highlight the features of newspaper articles. Can you find 6 key features and explain them to your family?
Following all our work on area and perimeter this week, measure your bedroom and calculate the perimeter and area. Draw a floorplan of your room, labelling the length and width, together with calculations for the perimeter and area.
12/10/17 Homework Activity - Design a Poster
This is the time of year that there are lots of coughs, cold and other bugs about that can be easy for us to pass between each other. One of the best ways to try to avoid catching or passing on an illness is to make sure that we are regularly washing our hands.
Our Plaza are going to enter a competition to design a poster that encourages children and adults to make sure they are thoroughly washing their hands. The pictures below give you some extra information about the competition, as well as some advice about good hand washing techniques.
Your poster entry must:
- Use a full A4 page in your homework book (portrait or landscape - the choice is yours!) You could create the poster on a separate sheet but this MUST be glued into your homework book.
- Include the words 'Golchwch eich dwylo!' and 'Wash your hands!'
- Be eye-catching and well presented
- Be your own work - so no copying and pasting text and images from the Internet unless you know they are copyright free
- Can be created using coloured pencils, felt pens, paint, a computer or a combination of different materials, as long as it is 2D so that we can photocopy and scan your entries.
We look forward to seeing your entries next Tuesday!
