06 Curriculum evening Sept 2020 Rowan Class

Rowan Class have had a fantastic start to the year and I have been so grateful for their enthusiasm and willingness to embrace a new school year.  We have recapped calculation methods, started reading Goodnight Mister Tom, learnt about the events leading up to World War 2, played very competitive hockey in PE and built bridges to show how we can work as a team.  I am really excited to continue a journey through Year 6 with them.  You should be very proud of how hard they have worked.

This term we will be learning about the Ancient Greeks. A whole class text is ‘Who Let the Gods Out!’ by Maz Evans. We have really enjoyed the first two chapters and can’t wait to find out what has happened to Elliot’s mum. We have started the year learning about negative numbers and Roman Numerals.  While we have found this challenging we are working hard  to learn more. In P.E we are learning about rugby and all the rules we will need to follow.

Beech Class Visit the Winchester Planetarium

Year 5 had a brilliant, engaging day out at the Winchester Planetarium to consolidate their learning of Earth and space. They took part in a robot workshop, where they programmed robots to move in certain directions. Beech class then experienced the fantastic planetarium show taking us on a journey through space.
