Class 4 had a very creative and productive time today on the first day of our SMSC-focused week. For our ‘Multi-Faith’ day, we made our own Peace Malas (which represent different religions, cultures and lifestyles) and considered the importance of respect and acceptance towards others. We explored different faiths and the differences and similarities between these – we had a particular focus on their key messages, or ‘Golden Rules’, and how these affect how we live our lives alongside others.
A great day, Class 4!
We have had a lovely time in Art. As part of our Viking topic, we have been designing our own necklace made from clay.
We have had a lovely day at the safety carousel. As well as learning about fire, road and water safety, we have also been learning about the dangers of electricity, keeping safe around the house and e-safety.
We have been very lucky to have a visit from the Fire Service to learn about having fun but keeping safe in the run up to Bonfire Night.
Year 5 visited Parkside today and had a brilliant time experiencing life as a secondary school pupil. We had English, Business Studies and PE lessons (the climbing wall was a big hit!) and were able to show off some of our skills. We saw a few familiar faces and a great day was had by all!
Working hard during an English lesson at Parkside, today!
We have had another interesting afternoon with our visitors from the Jorvik Centre in York. Today we discussed work, home and family life of a Viking and handled some common, everyday items. The comb made out of bone and the very thin, handmade coins were especially interesting!
We then added role-play to a Viking story where some characters definitely got more than they bargained for!!!
We’ve had a busy week in Class 4 this week. On Wednesday we had a Judo taster session and our Harvest celebration. The children enjoyed both of these events.
What a fabulous afternoon in Class 4 – the children were completing explanation tasks on the structure of the Earth, using prior learning and independent research to demonstrate their understanding. Some fantastic work was produced – well done Class 4!
We have had a brilliant afternoon with our Viking visitors from York. Today we focused on learning about weapons used and why they invaded England.
We are so excited as The Vikings are visiting us tomorrow in class for the day! The Jorvik Viking Centre from York are going to be delivering workshops with children in class 4. We can’t wait to update you on all of the fun things we will be doing.
Today, during our science lesson, the children in Class 4 really enjoyed dissecting a Lily and carefully studying the different parts with magnifying glasses. They were then able to separate the male and the female pieces of the flower and identify and name each part.
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. Have an early night tonight Year 6 so you are rested to do your best tomorrow. You have worked very hard so this week is to show how great you all are!
As part of our work in DT, we have been designing and making our own lighthouses. Using our knowledge of electricity from our science lessons, we managed to light up our lighthouses as well.
We had a fantastic day last week with Professor Tagtiv8. We enjoyed deepening our understanding of challenging maths problems in an active and energetic way. After the day, Mr Professor commented on the excellent attitudes of our pupils. Well done Class 4!

All Year 5 children had a fantastic day at Parkside. We wrote our own fairy stories with a twist, investigated the size of a gnome’s house and explored our bodies in Science. All children showed fantastic attitudes and were excelent role models for our school. Well done!

This afternoon Class 4 were doing some work for the ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ initiative. We talked about what we understood by the term racism. We then completed a task where we had to organise the pictures of different people into categories and decide whether we trusted them or not based on our first impressions. We talked about how everyone had the right to be treated the same regardless of someone’s skin colour or religion. We finished off the lesson by designing our own ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ posters.

We have had a lovely trip to the Baltic; all of the class set a good example for our school. We visited the Millennium Bridge and took part in an artist workshop where we drew and made bridges, then we made our own boats out of clay.
02 March 2017. We have had a brilliant time at Willington Library. We really enjoyed exploring the books on offer and having a story read to us by the librarian.
