    Plastic Pollution

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    On Monday 18th March, we will be launching a new school topic: Wonderful Earth. Year 5 and Year 6 will be focussing on plastic pollution. We will be learning many statistics that we hope to share with our community, about the devastating effect single use plastics are having on our environment. Our launch day will involve Art and DT plus research to generate our enquiry questions, which will inform our learning over the next 6 weeks.

    Parents' Meetings

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    Dear Parents, Thank you for meeting with me last week. The consultations were positive and it was great to share your child's progress. I am proud of all of the children's achievements and I was pleased to be able to share this with so many of you. If you require any further meetings with me, then please see Mrs. Goodall in the office. Mrs. Goodall co-ordinates the school diary and it is our policy to make appointments in this way. As you will appreciate, it is imperative for me to meet and greet the children in the morning and settle the class quickly and calmly. Therefore, please avoid coming into the classroom at this time, unless it is an emergency. Thank you for your continued support. Best wishes, Mrs, Vizard.

    Ozymandias

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    In our Guided Reading Session this week, year 6 will be studying the sonnet, Ozymandias by Shelley. It has many messages to the reader of power, irony and everlasting life. Later on in the year, Year 6 pupils, will write their own sonnets, following the strict patterns needed to write them successfully.

    Holes by Louis Sachar

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    Year 6 enjoyed reading an extract from this young adult novel last week, in our Guided Reading sessions. Stanley Yelnats is an unfortunate character and you can't help but feel sorry for him. The following is a short synopsis on the book: "Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment—and redemption. Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten- pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather and has since followed generations of Yelnats. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys' detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the warden makes the boys "build character" by spending all day, every day, digging holes: five feet wide and five feet deep. It doesn't take long for Stanley to realize there's more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake. The boys are digging holes because the warden is looking for something. Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment—and redemption. " This would be a fantastic read and I look forward to the children's views on this text.
