Holiday Homework

Please continue reading and practising your times tables.

As part of our work on Remembrance, we would like the children to think about who and what we remember.  Why are these things remembered?  How are they remembered?

For example:

we remember people who fought in World War I on 11th November at 11 o’clock and by wearing poppies;

I remember my holiday when I look through my photos.

The children could ask older members of the family about what they like to remember.

Note down ideas in your homework book to jog your memory when we work on this in class.


Miss McCann has also set a poppy challenge.  We hope that as many children as possible will make a fabric poppy that the Year Sixes will be making into a banner for the special anniversary the November 11th.






Reading raffle winners revealed!

Hello, hello!

We have been investigating sound and made telephones from cups and string.

For the cup telephone, you need two people. One person puts the cup up to their ear and the second person says something through the other cup.  The string needs to be taut(pulled tight).  Repeat the conversation without the phone.  You will notice the conversation on the phone is louder but also blurry.


Talking around the corner is more difficult because the string might go floppy. This stops the vibrations travelling so well.  Always keep the string taut so the sound can vibrate.

Sharks & Dolphins


Over the next few weeks you will notice a ‘buzz’ around the school, as we introduce

‘Bee a learning hero.’

During their learning the children will be encouraged to:

* work in different ways

* be responsible

* never give up.

Over the school day children and staff will be on the look out for our school’s learning behaviours and celebrate how they apply them into their everyday work.

As a school, we believe that these core skills will help the children to become independent, confident and focused learners: skills that will prepare and support them beyond the classroom.

Liquid or solid?

The sharks have been finding out if it’s a liquid or solid.

If you can pour sand does that mean it’s a liquid?

We looked at other items, for example, oil, sugar, hand gel, soap and jelly.

Some can be liquid and also solid, honey and even jelly can be too.
