Beams, Banquets Battles 

This week, the children were introduced their new topic which is all about The Tudors. Already, the children have loved finding out about The Battle of Bosworth, The Tudor Rose and Henry VII. They have lots of excellent questions to ask to deepen their own knowledge. In the photos, the children can be seen creating their own Tudor Rose using salt dough.

Merry Christmas

Today marks the end of our first term. What a busy and fantastic one it’s been! We had our Christmas party today where we had lots of dancing and games including ‘pass the parcel’. Have a lovely Christmas everybody, see you in the new year.

Children in Need

Class 6 have been busy baking to raise money for Children in Need. The children followed a recipe taking note of the bossy verbs. Everyone in school also brought a donation to come dressed in spotty clothes. We can’t wait to find out how much we have raised for such a fantastic charity!

Alphabet Quest 

Well done to all the children who took part in the Alphabet Quest set by the PTA. Some children even raised enough to get a set of books to take home! Thank you families for raising funds towards our new library!

Spooky Story 

imageThis week in Literacy, we had a Halloween theme for our story writing. First the children found lots of items that they decided belonged to Gretel the evil witch. They decided that she concocts potions to make people do whatever she wants. The children came up with lots of adjectives to describe the ingredients in her potion including a black bloodsucking bat and poisonous spiders!

What a Week! 

This week has been a fantastic one for Class 6. We won the attendance trophy, everyone had their PE kit and everyone had their books and homework today! Wow! Keep it up, I am extremely proud.

How to Catch a Dragon 

On Monday, we went to the woodlands to find all of the items needed to catch a dragon. These items were: a magical spade, a brown sheet, tasty meat, sticks and leaves. Once we found these items, we created the trap and waited! The children then wrote instructions so somebody else could make a dragon trap too.

Making Monsters! 

This week, we have moved onto the text type ‘Instructions’ in Literacy. As an introduction to this the children built a monster using junk modelling resources (kindly donated by the parents). The children have then written instructions using bossy verbs so that someone else could make their monster.
