This term our topic is 'Staying Alive'.
Please have a look at our topic sheet:
On Tuesday 20th December 2016 KS2 participated in a History Exhibition. Class 3 children had produced a variety of work on their topic the Anglo Saxons and Class 4 for the Victorians. It was lovely to see so many parent/carers supporting their children.
This is class 4's reading area. We have organised our books by genre.
We use our reading area for reading with friends, working in groups and for Guided Reading with an adult.
Every month we are introduced to six new titles. We can choose to read any of these books independently, in pairs or in groups. Alongside these books we have a Reading Gladiator journal that we complete after reading.
"Reading Gladiators has encouraged me to choose to read different and more challenging books" William, year 6.
"The Reading Gladiator books are good because there are lots of different styles so if you don't enjoy one, you can choose something different next time" Evie, year 5.
Woodham Walter History Class
On Tuesday 19th July 2016 we were fortunate enough to find out about the history of Woodham Walter. Sue Neale kindly organised for John Durham, Eileen Bullen - Bell, Pat Warner and Jean Wallis to talk through their fondest memories of their childhood. The children were absolutely fascinated to hear their stories and thoroughly enjoyed looking at the photos they brought in.
