    Perspective

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Perspective is our word of the week! We have learnt that this means a certain "point of view." In Literacy we have been learning to write from the perspective of a character. Our character in focus now is Tenko from our class book and we are writing diary entries about his adventures.

    Skara Brae and life in the Stone Age

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Today we have been creating tourist brochures on the Stone Age settlement of Skara Brae. This is where our class text is set and the children are developing their understanding of life in the stone age and their day to day lives. The children first had to identify what might be on a brochure and then research these specific features for Skara Brae. Putting all this into a brochure is the tricky bit!

    Please could all children bring a bulb to school on Tuesday 22nd October. The children will all be planting their bulbs in the large planters at the front of the school. We are hoping to create a beautiful Spring surprise with lots of different flowers and colours. Thank you very much.

    Rugby World Cup

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    The Rugby World Cup has got off to a cracking start this weekend and hopefully some of the children have come home showing some interest, if only to find out how their team is doing! Yes, we did have a class 'sweep stake' and the overall winner will win a prize when the competition comes to an end in November. The children are also encouraged to have a guess at the final scores and put them on a post it note each day with the closest score winning a prize. The peculiar shaped rugby ball was introduced into PE this week. Firstly into a benchball lesson as a way of getting used to throwing and catching a different type of ball. We will be building up to some tag rugby (if its dry) over the coming weeks.

    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.

    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.
