Welcome back to Term 6
Our last term together - how quickly this year has gone. We have a lot to accomplish in the next 30 days. We will begin auditions for our production of, 'Titanic the Musical' this week as well as continue on with our topic of, 'What Floats Your Boat?'. We will continue with our DT topic to build our boats and hopefully float them down the River Stour in town. Science will be learning about Evolution and the theory of how mankind came to be. During reading, we will be reading the text, 'Here in the Real World'. A lovely story about a young boy called Ware who seems to not fit into the 'real world' but needs to spend the summer in a holiday camp. Will he manage to be in the real world, or learn it is OK to be different?
Forest School will continue to be every other Monday afternoon and PE will be Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. Please check our Class Dojo Page for extra updates on these dates in events of changes.
I will continue to post pictures and work on here (and our Class Dojo Page) so keep checking in for some excellent work and fun things from us over the summer term.
Welcome back to Term 5
We will be learning all about boats this term with our topic, 'What Floats Your Boat?'. We will be recapping our knowledge of forces from term 1 to build a small model boat. Will they float?
We shall continue with PE on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure that the children have a full PE in school on both of these days. We will also be attending the Forest School every other Monday afternoon, I shall post kit reminders on the Class Dojo Page for this.
We have worked really hard on our clay project for The King's School this afternoon. I am really excited to see them on display at The King's School soon.
Welcome back to Term 4
We held an Art Gallery this afternoon in class to showcase our amazing work this term. We are all really proud of the work produced. I hope you like it too.
We had a cricket coach this morning to teach us the basic rules of cricket and how to hit and catch the ball. We had a great session with him and will use our new skills to play cricket next term in PE.
Our Greek clay pots are finished. I am really proud of the hard-work from Dolphin Class. Well done.
I am really impressed with our clay models of Terracotta Warriors today.
We worked hard to model each piece from clay and then mould them together to create a realistic warrior.
Well done, Dolphin Class!
We have been learning about China this week. I am so impressed with these fact files that I had to share them with you!
I hope you had a great week off.
I shall continue to post the weekly home learning on the Class Dojo Story every Monday morning. Our new Topic is 'Around the World in 30 Days', we shall visit a new country each week. We will be learning about the History and the Geography of each place.
Our Class Book is 'Asha and the Spirit Bird'. We follow Asha on a journey to find her father. Will she succeed?
I hope to see you all back in school soon, but until then, message me using Class Dojo if you have any questions at all.
Welcome back to Term 3.
I hope you all had a great break away from school.
This term our Topic will be all about Mountains, starting with Everest. We will also be reading a variety of different texts based on Mountains in Reading sessions.
Our Maths begins with more fraction work. We shall be adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing them.
In Science we will be learning about the Circulatory System.
PE will still be Tuesday and Thursday. Both will be indoors with Gymnastics on Tuesday and Badinton on Thursday. Please remember your PE kit.

Keep checking back to see some of our excellent work over the term.
We have been working really hard in English this week. We have been learning about evacuees during WW2 and wrote diaries describing our journey to our new home in the country.
We have been working hard to write a biography of Malorie Blackman for Black History Month. We also created small book covers too. Our work has been displayed in the corridor so we thought you might like to see it.
We played a Netball match against Polar Bear Class this afternoon to win the year 6 trophy. Both classes played amazing but I was very proud of the teamwork from Dolphin Class. We won the match and have the trophy displayed in our classroom proudly. Well done, Dolphin Class.
We have been working hard and learning about The River Stour that runs through Canterbury. We wrote some amazing factfiles and thought you might like to see some of them.
We finally visited The River Stour and had a lovely morning. We walked through town to see the ducking stool, caught some wildlife from the river by the Westgate Towers and measured it's width and depth. We shall work hard next week to put all our facts and pictures from the trip into our Topic Books.
