Hello Ocean Class and welcome to back to our new Autumn Term. We have so much to look forward to this term starting with our Tudor Banquet at The Pig! 


We also have our fabulous Mill on the Brue trip organised and I know everyone is very excited about all the fun that we will have there!


PE will be on a Wednesday this year and children can continue to arrive wearing their PE kits. 

As you can see on the topic web we have lots of exciting lines of enquiry to cover this term and will be particularly developing our skills as historians by looking at the Tudor period. 

Don't forget to check Class Dojo for all of the latest news and updates! 

As well as the work outlined in the topic web above, we have many additional experiences planned such as planning and running a fundraising event for a conservation charity, in order to continue our learning from the Spring term, and of course the leavers play in term 6.


Here are some photographs from Spring Term 2023

The Fiver Challenge

Year 5/6 participated in the Fiver Challenge during the month of June.  Amazingly, out of our nine teams, three won prizes at a national level.  Read and Bead won the Best Logo competition and Just a Note were the runners up for the category of Best Overall Business and were praised for their product and the research which took place.  Finally, Bugingham Palace won in the category for Most Sustainable Business and the judges were impressed with how professional their product was.  Well done teams!
