Our Topic this term is...
"Peasants, Princes and Pestilence"

Flee your fields, close your doors and pull up the drawbridge: the dreaded and deathly 'Great Pestilence' is here! Mount your steed and gallop through the dark and deadly world of 14th century Britain, sword and shield at the ready, pledging your allegiance to king and country!

Rouse your troops with promises of bloody battle and violent jousts. Read and write historical accounts, poems and tales and discover the grotesque effects of bugs and bacteria on the human body.

And if you smell a rat, my friend - get out of there!

Internet Safety

Hockney Class had a pleasant visit from PC Greg Steer, who talked to the class about Internet Safety.

PC Steer talked to the class about how to stay safe online and also the age restrictions for different social media sites.

The children really enjoyed it, thank you PC Steer!

Reading Buddies

This year each of the Year 6 children have been given a reading buddy from the Reception class. Over the course of the year, they will read to the younger children weekly and also listen to them read. Well done all!

Getting to Know You

Hockney Class enjoyed a great first day back at school. The children had a game of 'getting to know you bingo' finding out lots of interesting information about their new classmates.

A great start! Well done!
