Our Topic this term is
'Frozen Kingdom'

Welcome to the planet's coldest lands... vast wild's, hostile territories, incredibly beautiful yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or pulled by a team of might sled dogs.

Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an arctic fox; hunting rodents and sift as the wind!

Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and eco-systems and compose evocative poems about the Northern Lights.

Become part of an Antarctic rescue team, braving the elements to rescue terrified passengers from a ship struck by a deadly berg that hides deep beneath the Antarctic Ocean.

So wrap up well everyone and settle by the fire. I'm just going outside and may be some time... "

Class Assembly

On Wednesday 15th January, Hockney class took part in their class assembly on the 'Frozen Kingdom'.

The children performed a play and sang a song to the rest of the school.

The children were perfectly behaved and a credit to the school. Well done everyone!


Staying Safe Online

The children had an important visit on Friday from PC Steer, who talked to the children about online relationships and staying safe online.

It was a great session and the children made lots of good points and asked lots of sensible questions. Brilliant work everyone!



Reading Project

Several of the children in year 6 are taking part in a 'reading project' over the next few months.

The children are reading the story Street Child by Berlie Doherty on the Kindles.

Reading Buddies

The Year 6 children have been given a reading buddy in Reception to read with.

It's proved a huge success so far, helping to build good bonds between the children. Well done all involved!
