together we can...


Religious Education

Our class value is Compassion.  In our R.E lessons, we have been looking at and learning about The Bible, the Qur'an  and The Torah. We enjoyed a visit from Imran Kotwal from Muslim Learner Services, who taught us a lot about Islam.


Our first topic was, 'Were the Anglo Saxons Really Smashing?' We discussed why invaders and settlers might want to come to a new land and whether we would let them in to our area. We decided we would fight them off!

We created some fabulous projects about the Anglo Saxons at home.
Our second topic was. 'Why Was Islamic Civilisation around 900 AD known as 'The Golden Age'?'. We learnt how advanced the Islamic scholars were in mathematics, astronomy and medicine - they invented anaesthetics and stitches!

Design and Technology

We designed, made and decorated a cake that didn't look like a cake for the Mad Hatter's Tea Party. Crumbled cake and frosting were mixed together and encased in fondant icing. It was delicious!


We have studied 'Materials and their Properties' and 'Earth and Space'. We enjoyed making Space-related Home-school projects!.


Would you like to be 'Born in the USA'? We celebrated Thanksgiving, spoke to visitors and did a range of activities to help us decide!


Years 5 and 6 are now studying Latin, as over 50% of English words are derived from Latin, so this will help us with our English as well! We started by saying 'Salve' to our Roman characters, who actually lived in Vindolanda, near Hadrian's Wall, in the first century AD.
