Autumn Term

Our topic this term has been the Rio Olympics. To start our topic off we visited the English Institute of Sport, Sheffield. We had an amazing time and even got to meet Joe Joyce – 2016 Olympic Silver medallist. Here are some of our pictures to show you what we got up to whilst we were there.

Summer and Spring Term 2016

This term has been a very busy one in Lion Class and we have been working hard both inside and out of school. Our topic this term has been Anglo Saxons and Vikings and we have been examining a range of archaeological finds such as weapons and jewellery. We have also begun to read our class book ‘Stig of the Dump’ and next term we will be writing some fantastic stories based on Barney and Stig’s adventurers.

Many children in Lions have been flexing their muscles and showing off their sporting skills in a number of competitions and have made us very proud! Well done to the amazing Bowling, Handball and Cross country teams.

The Year 6s have also been working incredibly hard in preparation for their end of year assessments including being put through their paces in a Mock SATs week! They coped really well under pressure and as a treat for their hard work and positive attitudes they took part in their very own Lion Class Bake off! Some yummy and interesting Naan breads were created and judged and our winner was Abi and Brandan! We hope they made their way home but a lot of munching and nibbling may have occurred on the way!

Next term is going to be incredibly busy in Lion Class as Year 6 will be preparing for their end of year assessments which will take place the week beginning Monday 9th May.

Our topics for the summer term are ‘Rainforests’ and ‘Water’ and we will be planning lots of fun and exciting activities including building shelters and thinking about how important water is to all life including our own. We will also be going back in time to explore how Lord Armstrong pioneered using water instead of fossil fuels.

The summer term is also that time of year when both year 5 and 6 will be going on their Residential trips to Shropshire and Norfolk. There’s still time for them to earn those last few credits and I will be setting another reading challenge over the holidays worth 10 credits for all those who complete it! Keep checking your Bug Club accounts to see what it will be!
