The final term! I wonder what term 6 is going to offer us, after such a crazy year!!!

It is our final term for our year 6 leavers and we are going to miss them very much once they have gone.

We are also going to be preparing for our RSC filming and our End of Year Production, 'Wow, What a Year!'

Look out for those catchy tunes and choregraphed moves!!

Blood Heart!


Crimson, scarlet, burgundy, cherry. Blood flows through our bodies in all its vibrant shades of red. Let’s explore our circulation system. Now, surgeons, don’t be squeamish as we dissect an animal heart and examine the veins, arteries and chambers up close. They all work hard to move blood around our bodies. William Harvey was fascinated with anatomy, and made ground breaking discoveries about valves. I wonder what we might uncover? Why do people give blood? Find out how to keep your heart happy with cardiovascular exercise and healthy food. Kickstart a campaign to spread the word about the damage caused to the lungs and heart by smoking. Hearts pound, flutter and maybe skip a beat. What makes your heart race? Is it a secret? Cross my heart, I won’t tell.

Our Class Book is:

We have been Scientists dissecting hearts!

We have made humans hearts out of clay!

Here we are!

During the first full two weeks we have been studying a book called Here we are by Oliver Jeffers. The children have had the opportunity to explore what has happened during our lock down time, how they felt and what were the highs and lows for them. We have taken our time in Earth class to think about how with need to learn to socialise with each other and made our class promises. The children have also thought about what they would like our world to be like in the future and how they can personally make a difference. The children have thought deeply about their own personal emotions upon returning to school. Even though we have not been able to sing we have enjoyed joining in with many actions of our favourite school songs. We have been very impressed with how all the children have returned back to school life and see each of their individual spirits sparkle!

Here we are!
