    Welcome Back

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Welcome back to school everyone! Hopefully by now you have all had a welcome back letter, which can be accessed on the class page via the school website along with the topic web for Rock Through The Ages! If anyone has any fascinating artifacts that can help the children's learning, please bring them in. We have had a busy return to school and as the kids have been informed, it's a busy year with camp, leavers assembly, end of year shows/assemblies, prefects, house captains, new clubs, sports competitions, SATs and leaving Berkeley! There will be ups and downs for everyone and there will be challenges along the way, but I have every confidence that it will be a year full of positive memories also. I hope everyone is gradually slipping back into school mode as the weather seems to have sped that process up for us!

    Reading Records

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    In less than a week, I have had plenty of children showing me reading records where they have read to siblings or family members. I'm very impressed! It's good to see the children excited about reading and talking about books amongst themselves from time to time. I'm always curious to hear about what books the children are into and where possible, will keep an eye out for books in shops that I think a child will like. Please come and ask me about book suggestions for children and keep up the excellent reading that is happening at home. It is clear that the children are more excited about reading when there is interaction at home about what they are reading.

    We have been learning in Science about how creatures have evolved and adapted to be successful. We have also considered how humans have evolved to ensure our survival on our planet. The pupils have produced some outstanding pieces of learning which will be POBBLED this week.

    Science - Lemon Volcanoes

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    Year 6 made an explosive mess on Friday, as we experimented with lemon juice, baking soda, food colouring and washing up liquid. The results were some impressive mini, colourful volcanoes. We will soon be making much larger volcanoes using different chemical reactions. We might explode the next patch outside!

    Tectonic Plates and Continental Drift

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    In Geography we have been learning about the make up of our planet Earth. Surprisingly, our continents are drifting and in 50 million years time our planet will look very different. Tectonic Plates are moving continuously and occasionally rub against each other. Some natural disasters occur due to the interaction of tectonic plates.

    Summer Time

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    As we enter our final term together, we will be reflecting on our achievements throughout our time at BPS. This term will be jam packed with rehearsals, swimming, celebrating, sports day, investigations and transition activities. We very much look forward to spending quality time with each other, enjoying special moments together and making memories which will last a lifetime.

    Berkeley's Got Talent!

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    So you think you've got what it takes to silence an audience with utter brilliance? Year 6 certainly do; we will be proving it on Thursday 18th July, 2019, when we proudly present Berkeley's Got Talent (for one night only). The night will be full of acting, singing, laughter, and much more, so make sure you have your tickets . It would be a shame to miss out. Tickets available week beginning 1st July. BPS is the place to be!
