In English, children have been unpicking the structure of suspenseful short film, Alma, so that they can map out their own tales of suspense. The video is available here, and our next step is to replace the key events in Alma with our own ideas. What might your main character spot in the window?

We held a quick information meeting for our Year 6 parents this week to introduce important milestones for our children who are in their final year at Primary School.

If you were unable to make it to the meeting, don't worry! Clicking on the 'Year 6 Briefing' title will download the slides from the meeting, which include dates for the SATs and for High School application deadlines.

Homework: Children are expected to complete one task per week from the homework grid. Click the link above to see our current one. 

Reading: All children should bring their reading book every day and read at least 3 times per week. These are checked on Mondays.

Spellings: These are set on Spelling Shed on Tuesdays and will be tested on the following Tuesday.

TTRS: Children should access their Times Tables practice frequently using TTRockstars.

Toast is 15p per day - please try to send the correct money.

In History, we have been learning about the Viking invasions of England. We have learned the Vikings conquered the majority of Northumbria, Mercia and East Anglia, until King Alfred and his son, King Edward of Wessex, managed to resist. Can you remember which countries the Vikings invaded from?

Years 5 and 6 have started learning through Maths No Problem!

These are pictures of the children investigating Chinese abacuses. The counters at the top represent five and the counters at the bottom each represent zero. The children had fun persevering with a difficult problem and using physical resources to create models.

Mrs Dumbleton held a Parent Meeting about Maths No Problem! on Wednesday 25th September to introduce how the scheme works. Click the title above for information from the meeting.

Day of Languages

As part of our school-wide European Day of Languages celebrations, children were invited to bring in items which reflected their cultural heritage. It was wonderful and fascinating to hear children discuss the different aspects that they feel define their cultural heritage. 

After our discussions, we wrote poems, which beautifully illustrated the food, music, jokes and songs that make up our cultures.

Thank you to all the children who brought and shared items from home. 



Flower Sculptures

Our Art topic this half term is Sculpture. We have been looking at flowers and their petal shapes carefully. We experimented making different petal shapes using pipe cleaners.

Now we have started creating our sculptures using wire, tissue paper, water and glue.
