Week Commencing: Monday 18th July:

We are in our last week at school and the children still have lots of different activities to look forward to. On Monday we will be at the Village Hall practising for our fantastic play Dr Dolittle. This will be the first time we have tried it on the stage so we will need to work very hard to make sure it is perfect for our first performance on Monday evening. Please remember the children need to be back at the Village Hall on both Monday and Tuesday evening at 5:30pm to get ready for the performance. Also can you give your children a snack and water bottle on Monday and Tuesday as they will not be back for Tuck at morning break but they WILL BE BACK for lunch. 

On Wednesday some children in the class may be involved in the house netball and football matches so it is probably better to keep their PE kits in school, with trainers, until they go home on Thursday afternoon. Thursday is the traditional church service lead by Year 6 and on Friday morning the Leavers Assembly and Awards presentation.

No more reading books will be sent home this week, there will be no spelling test or times tables challenge this week.


We are also encouraging the children to join their local library's "Summer Reading Challenge" - which is also supported by an interesting website where they will get some good ideas about what books to read. Please keep up the reading over the summer!

Things to remember weekly:


On Monday mornings the children will all be asked to hand their reading books and homework diaries in so that we can sign their diaries and change reading books if needed. We will also take this opportunity to stick their spellings in, so if they do not have their books in on Monday they will need to take home a piece of paper with the spellings on or refer to these class pages.


We hope to change reading books on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please sign to say your child has read three times in a week and then we can award them a house point, it is extremely important for the children's progress that they do read at home as much as possible.


Please note that maths homework is being set on the active learn web site weekly, and children need to keep up with this. The children should already know their log in and passwords and be familiar with the site, please let us know if you experience any problems.


Please note that Games lessons will be with Onside Coaching on Monday afternoons and Indoor PE with Mrs Schroeter on a Wednesday.


After School Clubs are all happening this week.


We are looking to replace our art aprons so if you have any old shirts at home that you don't want can you please send them into school with the children. 







Sports Day Fun ! Well done Brazil!

This is the stage the children will perform Midsummer Night's Dream on!

National Story Telling Week: We listened to an audio story and discussed what made a storyteller a success. We then had a go at telling each other stories using lots of expression as well as actions and body language.

As part of our work on Willaim Shakespeare we read the story of King Lear and anotated the story as we went along. We crossed out characters when they died and were amazed how nearly all the actors were dead by the end of this Shakespearean tragedy. We imaged the actors pretending to die on stage and thought it would be very dramatic.

We have been busy creating clay dragons inspired by Chinese dragon designs.

In D.T. we are constructing round houses. We replicated the wattle and daub method by using little sticks and staw as the wattle and a mud heavy with clay to construct the walls. We are adding a straw roof to make them as authentic as possible.

Maths: We are working with fractions. Our task today was to order fractions with different denominators and numerators.

The children wrote their own playscripts about the story of the 'First Thanksgiving', the rehearsed their scenes and performed them to Beech Class.

Meet the Flintstones: Miss Hatton kindly visited us and explained the importance of archaeology. She brought with her some Stoneage aretefacts, we were amazed how the flint and obsidian had been made into what look like modern knife blades and arrow heads, and it was exciting to touch something that was thousands of years old.

We created volcanoes and made them erupt.

On Friday we all enjoyed an afternoon of cave art. We used pastels to draw animals and human figures in the style of cave paintings and used our blending skills to create the cave wall.

This week we brought in our favourite cuddly toys and told each other stories about them. They may form part of the front cover of our magazines.
