Year 6 want to say a big thank you to everyone who supported their cake sale last week. Through the sale of cakes and donations they have raised £200 for the charity ‘Network for a Better World.’ Mrs Corben, who came into school to speak to Year 5 and 6 and who is heading out to Malawi this week, sent this message:

What a surprise I had this week when Mrs Sealey told me how much you had raised at the cake sale for the children in Malawi! I am so proud of you all. I am so pleased that my talk gave you so much to think about. Let that always remain in your minds and hearts. We can do so much to help others who have little, by doing things like fund raising with a cake stall. I am only sorry I wasn’t there to taste the yummy cakes! I will be using the money to speak to the head teachers about which children they think will best benefit if we pay for their education, so that they can go on to secondary school. They will be in year 6 like many of you, but you know you can go on to secondary school , whereas they have no chance without this money.

In Rowan Class our topic this term is Natural Disasters and we are reading ‘Running Wild’ by Michael Morpurgo.  We have been learning to read and plot coordinates in maths and doing gymnastics and football in PE.  This week Mrs Corben came into our class to talk about her charity work in a community in Malawi – we are going to be writing letters to the children in a school in a village there called Sitima.

Rowan Class Visit  the Army Flying Museum

Rowan Class visited the Army Flying Museum on Tuesday to complement their learning about World War II, D-Day and their class text of Goodnight Mister Tom.  We were able to handle and try on items from the 1940s, walk through a 1940s house, learn about the history of flight and flight during World War II.  We had a fantastic day!
