Welcome to the start of our new school year!  The holidays have flown by and I hope you all had an enjoyable and fun-filled time.   laugh


On our class page I have placed some photos of the fun and games we had on our transition days in July. It was amazing how little water was spilled when we worked together as a team!  no


The novel we will be reading during the Autumn term is Carrie's War by Nina Bowden. This works well with our topic which will be World War Two.  We have a very exciting launch activity planned, a trip to Perlthorp where we can experience a little of life as evacuees during the war.  As part of our topic we will be cooking using WW11 recipes, studying the work of the artist Henry Moore during the war and writing scripts to perform using model theatres we will all create.  In English we will be writing narrative using flashbacks as found in Carrie's War.  We will start maths in the Autumn term looking at number and place value - these are a springboard to learning so much more in maths.  In French we shall look at shop names and directions and will create a poem en Francais.  P.E. will be on Tuesday and Thursday.. Please ensure P.E. kit is in school all week as we often have other opportunities.  We hope swimming lessons should run from February until July at Rossington pool - further details will be sent home when confirmed.


Homework will be given on Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday.


I am looking forward to the start of our new year together.  Do say hello if you see me on the playground.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me after 3.20 pm at the close of the school day.

As you may be aware, last year we had some chickens hatch in our classroom as part of our life-cycle topic.  Our cockerel had to go to a new home as he became rather noisy!  Year 5 currently look after our remaining three chickens: Popcorn, Peppercorn and Piri.  Please do visit them in their coop - they enjoy being given fresh grass.  I will be sending consent forms home for any children who would like to participate in helping to clean and feed the chickens.
