We had a hands-on Science lesson on Tuesday where we drew diagrams to classifty dolly mixture sweets. The children worked in groups and thought of some very interesting questions.

We've had a busy first week back after half term!

WC Mon 5.11.18:

This Thursday morning Years 5 and 6 held a Collective Worship in the hall. Parents and carers were invited to come in and join. We commemorated all those who have given their lives in war, with an emphasis on WWI as it is coming up to 100 years since the end of WWI. It was a thought provoking Collective Worship and we all paid our respects during a 2 minute silence. Children read passages from the Bible, verses from poems, prayers that they had written themselves and a couple of children performed a poem. Well done to all involved and thank you to those parents and carers who took part. 

In our English lessons we have been writing newspaper reports about the end of World War One in 1918. The children have been using lots of interesting facts from 1918 to inform the reader and have been using punctuation such as brackets for extra information and inverted commas for quotes.
