Remembrance day

11th November 2020

This week, we have been finding out a little more about Remembrance Day.  We looked at the poem 'Flander's fields' and wrote our own versions. 

We created art work showing the battlefields with Mrs Romanska and thought about how children, who were evacuated, felt.



4th November 2020

We are finding out a little more about P.T. Barnum this week. He was an American show man. The film the Greatest Showman was based on his life.  We will be writing his biography next week. 


7th September 2020

This week, we discussed what made a good learner. We created 'Learning bags'.  These show the skills and attributes we need to be an effective earner. We will use them as a reminder all year.

It has been wonderful to welcome the year sixes back into school. They have made an excellent start. Their behaviour has been exemplary and they are all eager to learn.


July 2020

Hi new year sixes,

I know it must seem a long time since you have been in school.  You have been missed a lot.  I am so pleased that you have been completing lots of home learning for Mrs Barnes.  I can not wait to welcome you back into school in September. 

I have met with Mrs Barnes and she has told me lots about how you like to learn and the topics that interest you.  

In school, we will be learning about the Islamic civilisation, rivers and classifying animals.  We will also be talking  a lot about how we have felt about missing school and our friends over the last few weeks.  Please don't worry - we will also practise the year five skills that you may have forgotten. 

If you have any questions or anything you want to tell me, please E-mail me. My address is:
