# That’s Entertainment !!

## Pupils reflections and peer assessment comments:

• I liked that we had to learn a new skill and you got to choose what you wanted to do.
• It was really funny when Mr McP was on the Segway.
• Feedback from my friends was quite good because I got to know how I could improve.
• I enjoyed people liking my stand up but I was disappointed that I lost 1 mark because I didn’t bring in my planning sheet.
• It’s not easy to learn new stuff all the time but it doesn’t mean it’s impossible.
• The stuff that people were doing was really fun because it was different stuff than people normally do.
• You would think learning a new skill is quite hard but choosing which one to do was also quite hard.
• It was a really good afternoon because everyone was performing their new skills and it was entertaining.
• It makes you nervous but once you start you get more confident and it gets better.
• I enjoyed watching the skills because they were entertaining.
• I was very impressed by the range of skills P67 developed.

# Festivals Personal Projects

P567 blew me away again with the effort they put into their personal projects. The presentations were full of interesting facts and the models were outstanding! Such a range of different materials …..clay, wood, junk modelling and food! Well done everyone .

# Maths Rotations – What’s going on this week??

We enjoy rotational maths activities as this allows us to explore maths concepts in several different ways.  This week we are delving in to the world of fractions.  Some of us are looking at equivalence while others’ are converting fractions to percentages and decimals.  We play games with concrete materials and by following PowerPoint’s that Mrs H prepares for us.  We take on challenges and apply our knowledge using Maths Workout and TJ Maths textbooks.  Everyone gets a turn to try all the different activities.

# Homework Resources

I hope this section will help the pupils with homework activities.  I will add things as they become relevant.  If there is anything you would like to see in the homework section let me know.

Here are some examples of what pupils produce for their homework tasks.  The homework issued aims to encourage pupils to take ownership of their learning and value the opportunities they are given to do so.  Spelling, reading and maths tasks are given and suggested by the teacher.  It is up to the pupils engage with the tasks and produce work that reflects elements of personalisation and choice.

Here is an example of how one pupil uses their homework diary to note important information and be organised for school.

Here are some homework resources that will help support learning and complete tasks.
