Term 4

We have so much planned for such a short term. The dates above are a start but I'm sure more will be added. Our topic for this term is "Plots and Protests" and its bound to cause some conflict along the way. 

We will be learning about various plots and protests throughout history and the differences they have made to us today (if any). 

We will continue to keep our methods on the boil in Maths and start our topic on shape, space and measure. 

Literacy is all about "Holes" this term as the theme continues. We will be reading this as our class book and enjoying some deeper critical thinking. 

PE is on a Tuesday afternoon and Archery on a Wednesday afternoon. Children will need full kit.

Welcome back to Term 3! 

Year 5 and 6 will be busy learning about the Greeks this term. This is a new topic for us and we are excited to learn alongside the children for this one. Year 6 will start SATs boosters this term so please look out for a permission letter from your child. SATs boosters will happen before school, during the school day and after school. Your child might be invited to attend 1, 2 or 3 sessions per week. A member of staff is giving up their time to run these sessions so once signed up, your childs attendance will be compulsory.

If you have any questions, please just come and see me. I will continue to add dates as they crop up. If you have not already signed up to Class Dojo, please do so as I update the class blog weekly.

Our topic next term will be "Bah Humbug". We will be reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and trying to get to grips with the Victorian style of writing. It should be fun as we will also be attempting a modern day version of our own! We will be diving deeply into the Victorians and living for a day as a Victorian child (and teacher). If you need more information regarding what to wear and what to pack in your lunch, please see Mrs Brown. We will be cooking a Victorian Christmas dinner and designing our own wrapping paper and cards which will be inspired by the works of William Morris. In Maths next term we will continue to look at our four main methods and begin our unit of fractions. You can help your child at home by continuing to use Time Tables Rockstars daily. We will also be data logging our Daily Mile and attempting to run a marathon by the end of the term. I want the children to cost up their own Christmas so please don't be alarmed if they start asking for your shopping receipts. 

Mr Cordero will continue with our weekly Spanish lessons and hopefully we will have mastered our first Spanish Christmas carol. 

Yeah... we made blood!

Whole class times table competition

Welcome to Raven Class



This year the Ravens will be taught by Mrs Brown and Mr Cordero. We are a Year 6 class and Mrs Brown has an exciting year ahead planned for us. We have an open door policy and if for any reason you need to talk to either myself or Mr Cordero, you will always find one of us outside class at 8.30am. Please come and have a chat and say hello. 



My Maths homework is set every week. If you lose your log in, please come and see me and I will print you out another. The children count daily, and I would really appreciate your help with their times tables. The more they count at home, the easier it becomes in class. Alongside My Maths, there are some excellent resources available on BBC Bitesize. I have attached the link to the bottom of this page. 



PE this term will be on a Tuesday afternoon with Mr Cordero. The children will need to be prepared to be on the field, so I advise you to pack them with indoor and outdoor trainers. In the colder months we will still go outside where possible so please include track suit bottoms and a jumper. 

We will also be swimming this term on a Thursday morning. Please ensure your child comes to school with either a swimming costume for the girls and shorts/trunks for for the boys. They will need a towel and a swimming hat each week. These can be purchased from the school office. 


I do love to take lots of photos, so please pop back to our page and our Class Dojo as often as possible to see what we have been up to.
