‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn B

Week 7


The Christmas festivities have well and truly begun. We loved our trip to the panto and were so proud of Casey and her amazing performance.  The grotto looks amazing thanks to the hard of the children in our class. We had a fantastic time at our Christmas party.  

Happy Christmas everyone! 

Week 6

This week we have been learning to divide with remainders in maths and using manipulatives to build fractions walls and find equivalent fractions. Year 6 wrote some excellent scripts to act out various scenarios in their ABC workshop. In Science, we have been researching Charles Darwin and continuing our learning about inheritance. 

Week 5

We have spent this week mastering long multiplication and problem-solving in maths. We are now experts! In science, we have been learning about inherited characteristics and thinking about how animals have adapted to survive in different environments. In English, we wrote non-chronological reports about the ‘yellow spotted lizard’ a creature from the story Holes. In Geography, we experimented with paper to investigate how mountains are formed. 

Week 2 & 3

We celebrated Anti-Bullying Week with an assembly, activities and by wearing our odd socks. We  have been continuing to learn about mountains in our geography, creating 3d models and this week we have been finding out about Edmund Hilary and Sherpa Tenzing Norway and their climb to Everest.

In maths we are learning long multiplication and in English we are continuing to study Holes. This week some of us were lucky enough to go to Robinwood Activity Centre in Alston, check out some pictures of the exciting activities we did! 

Week 1

This week we have started a new unit in Geography where we have been using an atlas to locate mountain ranges in Europe and find the highest summits. We learned to recite and perform In Flanders’s Fields by John McRay for our school Remembrance assembly. In Bushcraft we printed leaves and made beautiful clay artwork.
