Today, we learned about people who died in the wars. We found out that brothers from the same family were stopped from serving together. Why poppies? They were the first flower to grow in the fields after WWI ended so this is the flower to represent all those who died. Lest we forget. Each one of us designed a medal to show bravery.

Dylan M, Ashelee D and Lilly S daily, and very enthusiastically, are sweeping and collecting leaves from the back yard in order for year 6 to have a clear play area. They show fabulous teamwork and resilience and are taking so much pride in what they are achieving. Well done!
This week the children enjoyed watching a short clip from a book by Ruth Brown called The Dark, Dark Tale and then answered questions linked to the book.
This week, one of our handwriting sessions was focused on joining to and from ‘re’ and ‘pre’ We discussed prefixes and what they mean before using one of the words “preorder” in a sentence. We worked together as a class take the original idea and improve the sentence adding extra detail, changing the start and thinking about what a simple sentence needs.
Year 3 are settling back into their Ukelele lessons. They were practising the “a” and “e” notes to the tune of Old McDonald.
Over the last few weeks, Y6 has focussed We Believe time on the importance of positive mental health and well-being. Using World Mental Health Day as our starting point, we looked at ways we can help ourselves to relax and discussed resilience powers focusing on determination. Over the last two weeks, we have worked to fill in a well-being bingo board and have aimed to colour as many activities as possible to show what we have completed. We also designed resilience shields to present ways we can help ourselves. We have shown excellent maturity and discussion throughout.
During English this week, we have been looking at a non-fiction text. This has been based around the King Cobra. The children have really enjoyed learning new facts about this interesting animal as well as answering different inference questions.
In Year 3, this week we have been looking at landmarks in Geography. We explored some different landmarks in the UK and then used the maps to find their location and record their grid references.
