22/03/2021 This week you have art homework and maths on MyMaths.

Instructions for the art homework are below...


Police in Newcastle put art on the timetable for online competition

Youngsters across Newcastle are being invited to showcase their creative talents and come up with some police-theme pieces of art – and win a visit from one of the force’s dogs. 

Neighbourhood officer PC Natasha Egar said: “Children are now back in school after what has been a tough few months for them. Due to the lockdown we haven’t been able to go out to our schools as much as we have done previously and by doing a contest like this it’s a nice chance for us to continue engaging."

PC Egar wants children from Newcastle’s primary schools to come up with some police-theme artwork with participants able to do a drawing or use some materials to build something. 

The neighbourhood team has linked up with the force’s dog handlers where one of the dogs will make a special visit to the winning child’s school. PC Egar has also won the support of one of Newcastle's branches of Morrisons, who have kindly donated the other prizes – including a £15 voucher. 

In addition to a visit from one of the dogs, the winning youngster will receive a £15 Kids’ Choice voucher and an activity book. Second prize is a paint book, play dough, and confectionery while the youngster in third will receive some art materials including crayons, paints, glitter and paint brushes. 

A photograph of the piece of art should be e-mailed to no later than April 3. Those taking part should include the full name of the child and their school.

Extra maths challenge

It's Christmas!!!!!


We are all so proud of you this term. You've done so well, learned so much and made some amazing memories. Your homework for the Christmas holidays is to have an amazing break. In this year of change, where Christmas will be different, you're homework is to 

1) be adaptable and embrace the change

2) look after the wellbeing of yourself and others

3) make fantastic memories.


There are no spellings to learn for the 1st Friday back, you can continue to record your reading though. Be creative - if you read a recipe... it's reading. If you read Lego instructions.... it's reading. 


I've attached a challenge sheet below with a list of 'Things to do' if you're stuck for ideas one day. I'd love to see the photos of your Christmas celebrations and activities and we can share these on the first day back (Tuesday 5th January) if your parents email them. 

I know, I know ...



Yes! is my reply.


For homework this week I'd like you to practise singing the following songs. We are going to have an outdoor carol concert with our buddies next week. 

Hopefully you will already know the words.

The choice is yours - as long as you have the lyrics mostly learned by next week. 



Class 6, can I say thank you to those who emailed fabulous homework this week. 

I am also very proud of how you conducted yourselves at the cenotaph today. 

This week... 

Remember to continue practising your spellings ready for Friday. Silent letter 'b'.

English: Your activity is photographed below. Have fun!


This week's homework has a firework theme. Please do remember to stay safe if you will be watching fireworks and using sparklers at home.


Maths homework: This is not on MyMaths. Instead, you have a Fiery Figures challenge to choose - number 2 is more tricky than number 1.

English homework: Write and decorate your own firework poem - use this as an opportunity to practise your handwriting skills.
