Maths Homework

Today, your child will have received their arithmetic marks from last year’s paper and looked in detail at what they got right and wrong.  We have given them a new maths homework book with targets that need to be worked on.  The children can work on mathletics using their maths book to record working out, or any other resource that is suitable.  If your child is not sure what to do, please ask them to speak to a teacher on Monday.

Thank you

Homework for this week

Just to make it clear, we are not expecting children to hand in maths homework or writing homework this week.  We had the rare issue of a technical fault with our photocopier meaning that we could not print homework as we normally do.

We are expecting to see:

  • Reading x5 with signatures
  • Spellings

The menu homework went on the blog on Saturday so your child may have done some writing.  They can still hand this in and get credits, but we recognise that not everyone has access to the internet at home so we do not expect writing this week.

Homework still goes out on a Friday and is expected in on a Thursday.  Children who do not complete homework at home must complete it during golden time on Fridays.  This is in line with Wroughton Junior Academy homework policy.

Falcons were treated to a piece of  Lucie’s homework this afternoon after our Christmas party. It was scrumptious.  Thanks, Lucie.

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year

We realise that children in year 6 have worked really hard over the last term and want pupils to have a relaxing holiday.

 

We have given the children some optional homework to keep things fresh in their minds.  This is not intended to take over the children’s holiday, but purely give those pupils who would like to do more the opportunity.  We will post the answers to the optional homework on the blog in January.  Should pupils give in completed tasks, they will be rewarded with house points and reward tokens.

 

Have a super break!

Visiting Lynn Grove Academy for Arts and Textiles activities.

On 7th December all our year 6 children spent the afternoon at Lynn Grove Academy to experience their Art Department. 

They really enjoyed their sessions, and were made to feel really welcome by the staff and the year 7 children who were supporting them. 

A P.E. report by Morgan E and Ellie R

Today for P.E. Eagles class were given the opportunity to work with Coach Harry.

The class were beginning to learn how to play tag rugby.

During the first activity, the class were split into defenders and attackers. The defenders could only stand on a cone and reach to tag the attackers, who were trying to pass them without being tagged. The attackers became a defender if they were tagged. The first defenders were Kyle, Ebony, Harvey, Siobhan and Eleanor. Callum was first caught and Kiera managed to survive to the end on her own making it all the way across the defended area untagged.

The second round saw Lily, Kiera, Owen, Tyler and Jake take the defender roles. This time Kenzie was first caught and Callum made up for his first round by now being the last person tagged.

Cat & Mouse, this activity had 2 people being the cats and the rest of the group using bibs to represent tails. Once their tail was taken off them that person then also became a cat. In the first round Jake was last to be caught. In the second round it was Ebony and in the last round it was Kyle (With some excellent dodging skills).

The final activity known as ‘The Flinch’ Meant that the class had to stand in a circle with their arms folded. Coach Harry was standing in the middle of the circle with a rugby ball. As he began to throw the ball to people in circle they would have to catch the ball. However if he faked a throw and you flinched, then that person would have to put one arm behind their back. If they flinched again then they would have to stand on one leg.

The aim of this lesson was to show and practise some of the skills you may need to play a game of tag rugby.
