    Remembrance

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    Every child in school made a poppy to make a memorial on the school gates. Year 6 followed a tutorial on the internet, enabling the children to sketch some amazing poppies. To continue with the theme of Remembrance Year 6 will be welcoming Mrs. Knott from the Jenner Museum on Monday. She will be sharing with us some war stories from Berkeley and the children in return will share their family stories. Lest we forget.

    Parent Consultations

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    Thank you for making my first Parent Consultation session so positive. It was lovely meeting you all; the time really did fly! I am convinced that your children will have a memory filled year and together we can ensure that they all reach their academic potential. I am proud of all of the successes your children have achieved so far. Their resilience is developing and they are really showing me that they are ready for a challenge. A great first term Year 6!

    Homework

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    I have been amazed by the standard of homework which the children have done this term. Their research projects, presentations, reports etc. have been outstanding. I am creating a 'Wall of Pride' in our classroom, so that we can read and learn about our families' heroes. I must say, that I found it very emotional learning your war stories. We have so much to be thankful for. This term homework will still be set on Mondays. All children will have My Maths, weekly spellings and a writing/SPAG activity. Homework will commence next week. Many thanks for your continued support.

    Mark Lemon - Thea Lemon and her Super Sweet Fairy Godmother

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    The bus opening was a huge success on Tuesday. It has a wide range of books ready for us to read. We spent time during the day, writing our own version of Mark Lemon's story: Thea Lemon and her Super Sweet Fairy Godmother. We wrote from the viewpoint of other characters. We also used the writing technique of creating a time lapse. This writing gave us the opportunity of practising our skills at creating characters. Aunt Fullella is a very complicated character (we think she has had a tragic life).

    Evacuee Dress Up Day

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    Year 6 made outstanding WW2 evacuees and entered into the spirit of the day with real enthusiasm. It was great to see so many of the children dressed up, with their suitcases and gas masks. We boarded the train at 10:00 am and arrived safely at the small sea-side village of Branscombe. Here unfortunately, we experienced a couple of air raids. We didn't allow these to dampen our spirits and we played battleships and hangman to keep ourselves entertained. We finished the day with dancing and learned how to do the Lambeth Walk.

    Our fish represent us an individual. As we think about differences and inclusion our fish will remind us to celebrate our diversity and uniqueness.

    Our finished narratives based on Only One You look amazing. Some are displayed in the front reception area and the rest are going to be displayed in our class. The wax resist backgrounds really are stunning and all of our stories are edited to a high standard. Super effort Year 6, I am very proud!

    Awesome Archers

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    Mr. Panting has been teaching Year 6 on Friday afternoons about healthy life choices, team work and leadership skills. They have also been active in developing their archery skills. It has been great for the children to learn a different discipline and I am looking forward to seeing what they learn next term.
