Advice on doing homework

Damian, 13

I don't mind doing homework, especially when I play some jazz (and not pop) on my phone. When I do, I'm able to think more carefully about what I'm doing. Sometimes I really enjoy doing my homework, especially when it's maths and I understand it well. Or when one of my classmates comes to my place and we study together. I find it's best if I let my parents and sister know I'm busy so they don't come into my room and spend all evening talking to me!

Louis, 11

When I started doing my homework in my room every morning, it wasn't a great success. I always found something more interesting to do! But these days, I don't have the same problem. I just go to my room in the evening, switch on the light, sit down at my desk and do it. I do love music, but if l put my MP3 player on, I start to think about the song and not the homework! So I don't listen while I work. It’s the same problem if my mum or dad put music on in the next room. I turn my mobile off or put it away before I start. That helps too.

Jackson, 14

I usually do most of my homework before I go to bed. And then I do a bit more as soon as I wake up. I've always found it easy to do that. I'II maybe look at my German vocabulary for five minutes before breakfast. I tell my friends at school: “If you want to do your homework well, make sure your room is nice and bright. Otherwise, you’ll fall asleep!”

Starting photography

by Mrs. Howells, Class 3D teacher

Have you ever wanted to take better pictures of your family, of your dinner or of your cat? Well, I can help you. In fact, that's what makes photography such a fantastic hobby. lt doesn’t matter if you have a nice new camera or just use your phone. We photographers are always trying to improve. We want today's photos to be more interesting than yesterday's. In my photography classes, I'll show you how to find your own style, not just take the same photos as all your friends. But you'll need to be out of bed early and take pictures in the best light before it gets too bright. We'll talk more about light in Week 1.

Actually, I’ve never read a book about photography and I get bored watching videos on the net. l started to understand more about photography by looking at my own photos. I thought about what was wrong with them and decided how to do better next time. And in Week 2, I'll ask you to do the same with the photos you have taken.

Do you want to know what I think? I don't think there's anyone who can't take amazing photos. Not everyone wants to, and that's cool.

But if you do, come along to Room 4D on Wednesdays after lunch from 1:30 to 2:00.

Ferry to School

Most pupils go to school each day on foot or by car, but Jordan Basford is different. He lives on the Scottish island of Egilsay. There, the school had to because there weren't any other pupils. The nearest school is in Rousay, across the sea. His family has a boat, but it is small, and they can use it in good weather. A much larger boat is in bad weather. So every day, Jordan has to the ferry across the sea to go to school. He usually comes back home afterward, but sometimes he phones home to say that he's the night at a friend's house instead. “I know l have to travel a long to school each day,” he says. “But I don't mind.”

A school trip to the theatre

Last week, everyone in my class went on a trip to the theatre. We travelled there coach. The theatre is about 10 kilometers away from school, so it was much far to walk. The play was Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. In fact, it's probably the famous of all the plays that Shakespeare wrote. We've studied it at school, so I knew is about. It's a love story, but it's also the saddest play I ever seen. In the end, several   the people in my class were crying. But I loved it!
