In our English lessons, we have begun to look at what makes a great narrative. We focused on description and adverbials to interest and entertain our reader. We thought carefully about the purpose and ensured that our writing had the desired impact on the reader. Our stories focused on a new and foreign land for the characters – we took inspiration from this term’s book, ‘The Journey’.
On Tuesday, Lincolnshire visited LifeSpace. Our session focused on decisions, particularly around life, exercise and friendships. By watching a series of videos, we were able to explore how to stand up for ourselves against others that may try to influence us. We then discussed the importance of not being a 'bystander' and ensuring that we also stand up for our friends. There were chances for lots of group work and discussion which helped us to build our knowledge and empower us for future decision making.
In Lincolnshire, we received our new red panda toy which is to celebrate those who look after our classroom environment. Our class council conducted a vote and have decided to name it 'Bambi' for this term. Everyone was very excited to see the toy and have kept the classroom in immaculate condition in the hopes of being able to keep it on their desk for the day!
Have a great weekend,
Miss Aldis and Miss Gow
Please click the link below to apply to become a STEM Ambassador. You will need to think about why STEM is important in school, what you could do to improve it and what skills you think you would bring to the role. These are the types of questions you might expect to see in job interviews and they require you to be critically reflective about the subject and yourself. Good luck!
Home learning will be set each week on a Thursday and will be due in the following Tuesday.

In Year 6, we are rehearsing our multiplication tables to ensure that we can recall all the number facts quickly. The children have identified the multiplication tables that they would like to practise and should focus on these. Below is a link to a website that they can use to help them practise:
