We hope you enjoy looking at our class page.


Reading books should be brought to school daily  and we would be grateful if you could read with your child each evening.

Reading records should be signed each time your child reads at home; once a reading record is complete, your child can come to school the following day in non-uniform smiley
Spellings will be sent out on a Friday and must be returned the following Friday ready for a spelling test.
P. E. is on a Thursday and children should come to school dressed in their (weather appropriate) P.E. kit.


Academic Year 2020/21

Christmas Party 
We carried out an experiment to see how light travels. 

Who was truly responsible for the death of King Duncan? 
After working with our team to compose our argument, we presented to the opposing team. 
We used the poem 'In Flanders Field' as inspiration for a watercolour picture. We used layering techniques to intensify the colour. Next week, we will use the painting as a background for our own Flanders Field poem. Watch this space!  
We used an atlas to locate rainforests. In the next lesson, we carried out research on the four layers of a rainforest. 

This term, we have been basing our English work on our class novel, Wild Boy.


Wild Boy, was abandoned as a baby and left in the workhouse. After reading about the workhouse in the story, we wanted to find out more. Independently, we carried out research and wrote an information text.


In Wild Boy, Doctor Charles Griffin was brutally murdered. We wrote newspaper reports detailing the murder and the events leading up to it.


During our French lessons, we have been learning about our school. We are now able to listen, pronounce and write new vocabulary.

During PE this afternoon, the Year 6 bubbles have been competing in relay races with a twist. The children ran 60 metres and had 1 minute to collect grass in their bucket. They did this six times. When the time was up, an adult measured each pile of grass. The children then converted the measurements from cm to mm and then m to find out the overall winner. 
Bubble 1 have made dream catchers this afternoon. They are amazing. Well done, girls! 
Year 6 have been completing transition activities set by their secondary school.
