Happy New Year and welcome back to Falcons! Please find information about our new topic, “Crime and Punishment” as well as our homework for the first half of this term in the class letters.



This week has been very busy in Falcons!

Among other things, Year 5 have been learning about Chalk Streams both in class and at the river itself.

Meanwhile, Year 6 bravely took on Yoga Dance: they created and performed a class dance, which we filmed and played back to everyone.

It was also lovely to welcome Mrs De Zoysa back as a supply teacher.  She helped us to continue developing our Turner inspired pictures.  They are already looking impressive and will be finished next week.




Thank you to all our lovely children (and their supportive families) for keeping up with their Topic homework.  We are all enjoying the delicious treats made to avoid food waste, and are impressed with the quality of the work so far.  Only a couple of weeks to go until our homework review lesson – it’s going to be such fun!




This week we have been having great fun in English. We have been creating our own version of a report about the life cycle of a plastic bag (check out “The Magnificent Plastic Bag” on You Tube).
We discussed Tiptop (Time, Place, Topic, Person/Speaker) which we used as a guide for our paragraphs. We watched a video of David Attenborough and practised our ‘writer’s voice’.


Finally a huge Thank you for our cake which was made as part of a Homework choice!



Welcome to the new school year.  We’ve been having lots of fun getting to know each other and learning about plastics.

Last week we made our own natural plastic:



We also looked at the work of some of the ‘romantic’ poets, with a focus on the awe and wonder of nature and our natural environment. This week we wrote our own powerful poems about stormy seas – these are currently on display outside the classroom, and you are very welcome to pop in and have a look at them.
