Autumn 1

Welcome back to our school! Take a look at our classroom.

Welcome back to Year 5/6. I'm very excited to get back into school, and in a place of learning. 


Mondays is PE day, but bring your kit Monday and leave it for the week. We will be doing daily mile, or outdoor learning sessions that require outdoor kit/footwear. 


Swimming will be Wednesdays, but does not start until the end of October - stay tuned for further updates. 


We have water bottles in school, so there is no requirement to bring one. 




Week 1 


We have been looking at the Boy in the Striped Pajamas. Take a look at Niamh's letter to Bruno's friends (in character). 



Week one stars of the week - Jack for outstanding behaviour, and coming back to school like he means business! Darcie for an excellent start to the week - you have so much potential!


Homework - Place value. Bring these in on Monday 14th September please. 

Week 2 

This week, we have been looking at the Blitz. Check out Tyler's Blitz painting! 

Week 2 Stars of the week. Tyler for a wonderful piece of Blitz artwork. David for an amazing piece of writing. 

Week 3 
First of all, congratulations to Charlie  and Charlee-Maddison for winning the position of head boy/ head girl. 
I'm sure they will make everyone proud. Jack and Gracey are deputy head boy and girl, and will have another important role. 
This week has been a great week for Year 5/6. We looked at WW2 evacuation, and how it affected children and adults alike. We have been watching 'Goodnight Mr Tom' to support this. 
In maths, we've looked at multiples and factors, and even played the classis game of 'Battleship' with a Mr Finch-inspired factors and multiples twist. 
Check out Olly's tank sketch below!
Keep it up.
