    Tulips

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    We have been building on the pencil shading and water colour skills previously learnt. Today we used a new technique of fanning our brushes to create a feathering effect with watercolours. Our tulips are beautiful. They are a symbol that Spring has definitely sprung in Year 6.

    Blue Planet Live Lesson

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    Year 5 and 6 were treated today to a BBC Blue Planet Live Lesson streamed nationwide. The lesson looked at ways to improve current global problems from your school or your home. Are we recycling as much as we can in our homes? Are we buying unnecessary plastic packaging? Questions that hopefully the children will be able to investigate. We were also delighted that our class turtles Richard and Judy made it onto the show and were a big hit with the presenters!

    Plastic Pollution

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    On Monday 18th March, we will be launching a new school topic: Wonderful Earth. Year 5 and Year 6 will be focussing on plastic pollution. We will be learning many statistics that we hope to share with our community, about the devastating effect single use plastics are having on our environment. Our launch day will involve Art and DT plus research to generate our enquiry questions, which will inform our learning over the next 6 weeks.

    Parents' Meetings

    Posted by Mrs M Vizard
    Dear Parents, Thank you for meeting with me last week. The consultations were positive and it was great to share your child's progress. I am proud of all of the children's achievements and I was pleased to be able to share this with so many of you. If you require any further meetings with me, then please see Mrs. Goodall in the office. Mrs. Goodall co-ordinates the school diary and it is our policy to make appointments in this way. As you will appreciate, it is imperative for me to meet and greet the children in the morning and settle the class quickly and calmly. Therefore, please avoid coming into the classroom at this time, unless it is an emergency. Thank you for your continued support. Best wishes, Mrs, Vizard.
