We will be using our knowledge to enhance our English writing lessons and our topic lessons.

Monday 14th January

We've started our topic and located the key countries involved in World War 2 on a map. We listened to Neville Chamberlain's radio speech about preparing for war. The children used this information to help them imagine that they were there at the time and then write a diary entry from a child's point of view. In Maths we have been learning about Ratio and Proportion. In English we have started our narrative flashback writing skills.

Thursday 10th January 

 

On Thursday 10th, Class 11 were visited by a PCSO to talk about the work they do on the estate and in the surrounding areas. The children were interested to learn about the uniform and the equipment they carry with them. They also learnt what the lights and different sirens on the police cars mean. 

Monday 7th January

This term's topic is 'A Child's War'. This will be a history based project and we will explore what life was like for children during the second World War (1939-1945).

Here are some photographs of our exciting exhibition.

Monday 3rd December

This term Year 6 have been learning all about the Frozen Kingdom.  On Wednesday 5th December we would like to invite you to join us for our exhibition.  The children would really like the opportunity to showcase all of their hard work this term.

 

They have created a newspaper report on the Titanic disaster, an information leaflet about Polar plants and animals and worked really hard to sketch a polar animal of their choice.

 

We will also be painting the final version of these sketches on Wednesday, with a little help from you.

 

We will be opening the doors to the hall at 9am -10:30am.  Hot chocolate and marshmallows will also be available in the community room.

 

Many thanks for your continuing support.

 

We look forward to seeing you there.

Lab Rascals Science Workshop

Last week we took part in a very exciting Science Workshop to launch our topic 'Frozen Kingdom'. We learnt about States of Matter and discussed what we know about solids, liquids and gases. The experiments that we carried out certainly captured our imaginations. We all had to wear safety goggles throughout the session to protect our eyes. Take a look at the photos to see what we got up to. It was a great morning.

What a fantastic end to our Hola Mexico! project. Our 'Day of the Dead' celebration on Friday 2nd November was a huge success. We had a large turnout of parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles and friends. The children thoroughly enjoyed sharing their amazing Dia de los Muertos stories and felt very proud. It was great to see adults taking part in craft activities with the children and the tasting of the Mexican dips was very popular. Thank you for your support.

In order to achieve our reading challenge for the Autumn term, everyone should aim to read at least 50 times. Come on Class 11, read as often as you can so that we can all make it!

Welcome to Class 11!

 

Class 11 took part in a Mexican Day to launch our project 'Hola Mexico!' We made Mariachi musicians, sombreros, bunting and tasted delicious Mexican food. The tortillas and dips were very popular!

We have found out where Mexico is on a map of the world and have started to find out about their culture. In small groups, we researched life in Mexico and learned some very interesting facts about their celebrations, music, landmarks and traditions. 

We look forward to finding out more over the next few weeks.
