Ho Ho Ho – Super Stockings

As part of our DT lesson, the children started their Christmas stockings. They were surprisingly good at many of the skills required to complete these stockings – threading the needles proved quite challenging. However, we (including the adult helpers) persevered regardless. 😁

WW1 Homework

We have had some excellent homework so far this half term. One of the children made and presented a fabulous PowerPoint in connection with Remembrance Day. It was extremely informative and delivered with a great deal of knowledge. Well done 😊

We Will Remember

Today, Year 6 added a small wooden cross to our 100 bulb remembrance.

All the children in our class are thoroughly enjoying reading our class novel ‘War Horse’. This week they looked at the structure and features of an informal letter before writing their own from the trenches of WW1 to a family member home. Some of the letters were very emotive and depicted life in the trenches extremely well. 😊

We will Remember

On Friday, the children planted a crocus bulb to remember all the people who lost their lives in WW1. They all reasearched a local serviceman from the Great War and paid their respects whilst planting their bulbs.

I was so very proud of how respectful all the children were. We hope to see all the beautiful bulbs flourish in the shape of a cross by springtime 😊


Lest We Forget

Today, Archie Class started to sew our own poppies to remember the soldiers who died in the First World War. The children who have already made them, wore them with pride ❀️

Music 🎡 Maestro!

Today, Year 6 had their first flute lesson. Mrs Sulley, their music teacher, was very impressed. It seems we have a few budding musicians within our class 😊
