Lions Class

Welcome to Lions' Class page.

I would like to wish you all a warm welcome to the start of the academic year. The children have settled in quickly and are excited for the year ahead.

This week, the children will be introduced to their new school planners where they can list their homework, reading record nd notes. We are hoping the planners will encourage the children to be more responsible in preparation for secondary school. All planners need to be signed by a parent/carer and in school every day, especially Mondays for a teacher’s signature. This also gives parents the opportunity to communicate, where appropriate.  
Please remember to send a named water bottle in with your child so the children can access these when necessary.

Topic

Our topic this term is ‘Raiders and Traders’. Lion class will go on a fascinating journey of discovery as we find out about the Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the kingdom of England and how England became a unified country. The children will get to explore where the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings came from, how they fought for territory and power, and how their fighting ultimately led to the kingdom of England we know today. As well as looking at the historical context of the topic, Lion class will also learn about the six main styles of Viking art and how these developed throughout the Viking period. Children have been working hard in groups, designing and planning their own version of a Viking longboat. After half term, we will be exploring the location, features and culture of Norway, Sweden and Denmark. They will find out about how climates differ in various areas of Scandinavia compared to the UK.

Congratulations to the Y5/6 Girls Netball team who have progressed each week. Here they are, looking very happy after scoring their first 2 goals as a team! Well done to all of the girls.

Some of the Year 6s had the opportunity to compete at a cyclo-cross event at Biddenham. They course was very challenging but they perservered as a team and showed great stamina. They came third place - two points from qualifying for county finals! Very proud!
