For all children in Year 1 – Year 6, the homework this week is talk time and is due in on Thursday 19 October. There are two options:

  • I can prepare a speech for the School Council elections.
  • I know the importance of voting.

It’s time for children to consider if they would like to stand for election for our new School Council.  With two representatives from each class, chosen democratically by their peers, all children at St James’ Primary are encouraged to take an active part in pupil voice.

Elections for our new school council will take place on Thursday 19 October with our polling station and ballot boxes at the ready.  Candidates will have the opportunity to give their election speech to their class on Thursday 19 October.

What makes a good school councillor has been considered by our classes:

  • ‘use all the 8 Rs for learning’
  • ‘be respectful’
  • ‘help others’
  • ‘be a good speaker and listener (to members of your class and in the meetings)’
  • ‘tell the truth’
  • ‘be confident with your ideas’
  • ‘accept the views of others even if you don’t agree’
  • ‘be friendly and approachable’
  • ‘make good choices in class and around school’

Hints for your speech include:

  • What skills and abilities would a good school councillor have?
  • What are you particularly good at that would help you to be a great school councillor?
  • What do you think would make the school better?
  • What could you do that people would really like?
  • Think of things that are realistic, maybe that you could do yourself, rather than having to ask other people to do

Any current school councillors are welcome to stand for election again.

Good luck to all children who decide to stand in the elections.

If you choose not to stand in the election then you should consider the importance of voting.

I can show what human and physical features are.

We’ve looked at the human and physical features of Wetherby and Filey. What can your child tell us or show us about what they know?

This can be done in any creative way they wish: making models, drawing, writing or anything you can think of.

I know my address.

Our Explorers topic allows your child to explore their local environment and contrasting environments.

It’s important for your child to know where they live (house name/number and street name as a minimum) in case of an emergency.

Please ensure your child is aware that they should never reveal their address to someone they don’t trust.

Homework this week is all about measures.

Year 3 have some word problems to solve and Year 4 have some converting of measures. The sheets are glued in your child’s book.

If your child comes across a problem, please encourage them to ask for some help during the school day.

Times tables

Please practise the 3x table. All of the class will be learning this table for the next few weeks. So, expect lots of 3x related activities to be coming home. We’ll start by simply filling in the sheet that is glued in your child’s book.
