September 2020 - English

As part of our History topic this term are thoroughly enjoying the novel Secrets of a Sun King  by Emma Carroll.  Here in one of our first lessons where we were investigating the front cover and the blurb, learning how an author engages us from the beginning and entices us to read their book.  We have begun to learn about Lilian's life in the book and can't wait to read more.

September 2020 - Maths

In Norwich we have started our Mathematics with great focus and determination to achieve the best we can and learn new skills and knoweldge.  Part of our aims in Maths is to be able to teach others how we can solve problems; making the links across all areas of maths.  A real mathematician can not only solve the problem themselves, but has the ability to teach someone else.  Here is an example of this in our class.


September 2020 - Whole School Assembly

Today was our very first assembly together as a whole school in quite a while.  It was so lovely for our school family to see each other again and enjoy all the amazing learning we have completed this week.  We stayed in our 'Bubbles' but enjoyed our special get together via TEAMS, lead by Mr. Hodgson.  Y5 shared our amazing sketching.

September 2020 - History

We started our topic by thinking about history and timelines.  The children were given several historical events / time periods and they had to sequence them in chronological order.  There was a lot of debate in class!
