Autumn 2018

Week beginning 17th December


This week we have had a wonderful build up to Christmas. We loved singing to our parents/carers and other family members at the coffee morning - we are feeling very festive now. We have also enjoyed our Christmas party. Amongst all the celebrations, we have managed to complete our WW2 planes and evaluate these designs.


We are sad to say Goodbye to Miss Thorpe for a few months but we are excited to say that Miss Taylor will be covering PPA in 6CN all day on Mondays and 6SC on Wednesday mornings. Mrs Taylor will be covering 6HC on Monday mornings and 6RN on a Monday afternoons.


We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas break and we can't wait to see you all on 7th January.

This week we have enjoyed exploring more in science about circuits and how they work. We have began to write a biography of a famous person - next week we will be writing about ourselves in an autobiography. We have continued our work in RE on Judaism, in particular Hanukkah which begins this Sunday (2nd December).



Next week:

We are very exited about WW2 Day on Wednesday 5th - don't forget to dress up as someone from the war period e.g. a soldier, a member of the Women's Land Army, an air raid warden or someone from that era. We have lots of fun activities for the children to participate in during the day.We will also be studying more about our rights as part of PSHE and relate this to refugees throughout the world. Our FW book (Boy in the Striped Pyjamas) is approaching the climax which will unfold over the next two weeks!!!!


Reminder: Please bring in something holey to 'make do and mend' with and a shoe box or cereal box to use in Science and DT.

Week beginning 19.11.18


This week we have enjoyed careers week. We experienced a fantastic workshop on Wednesday with lots of adults all talking about their jobs. We hope you are feeling inspired. Most of our literacy work and some other lessons were all based around this theme. Remember, you can be whatever want!

Next week:

In History, we will be studying ‘make do and mend’. We are continuing our work on the ‘The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas’, which is getting very interesting! We are then going to be studying biographies in literacy.



Next week you will need to bring in an item of clothing i.e a sock, with a hole in it. We will be attempting to ‘make do and mend’ as part of our history week.

Also, just a little reminder that World War 2 day is on the 5th December. Start thinking about your costumes. We already have ours.
