‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn B

Week 4

We enjoyed a very crisp morning in the bushcraft area this week, using bow-saws to cut wood in preparation for our Christmas crafts. We have been continuing with fractions in maths and our class reading book “Holes” in English.

Week 3


This week some of us were away on residential but those that were here had a DT week where we made toys using CAMS. The children had to design a toy themselves and, working in groups, they then implemented their design. We were really impressed with what the children made. We were having too much fun to take any photos but hopefully your child has brought home their creation for you to see.

Week 2


This week we have continued looking at mountains in geography, identify features and different types of mountains. In maths, we have been converting fractions to compare and order from smallest to biggest. In English, we have started our new class book called Holes by Louis Sacher where the children have tried to predict what they think will happen in the book based on the front cover, and also identified the characters we’ve been introduced to so far.


We’ve also celebrated Children in Need today and one of our classmates made a wonderful cake for the class to share. Thank you Phoebe.

Week 1


Welcome back Year 6. We’ve done Bushcraft this week where we made leaf imprints into clay. We’ve been looking at the poem In Flanders’s Fields ready for Remembrance Day. We’ve also been learning about spreadsheets in Computing and mountains in Geography.
