History

We have spent the last few weeks launching our new WW2 history topic. The children are really engaged and enthusiastic about this period in History and are contributing well to all lessons. So far we have covered:

The cause of WW2

Neville Chamberlain’s declaration of war speech (where children wrote and recorded their own version).

The rise of Winston Churchill and the impact he had on WW2!

We look forward to continuing this topic for the remainder of the Spring term.

Choir Christmas Performances

 

 

We had the pleasure of being invited to the Old Vicarage Care Home last Friday to perform a few of our Choir Christmas favourites. The children were amazing and as usual they sang beautifully.

Feel free to catch us at St Chad’s Church in Shrewsbury on Thursday between 2-2.30pm. No tickets needed just drop in to see us perform a few Christmas songs.

Thanks for all your support since September. The children are doing a great job and it’s so nice to see children from Y1 – Y6 coming and committing to choir and our performances!

Have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year! 🎄🎅🏼

Roman Feast

A Slightly delayed update: Last week we had a small Roman feast.
This term the children have been learning about how the Romans changed Britain and we finished off the topic by sampling some Roman foods baked by the children.

Pen licence

 

 

 

 

 

A few more children have gained their Pen licence this week! They are all trying super hard and I’ve encouraged them to keep going with their handwriting as we have many more that are very close!

Christmas spellings and Homework.

Hi Everyone,

I have decided not to set any ‘main’ homework task today as I am aware it is a very busy time of the Year, however, all children were given new spellings.

There will be no Times Tables or Spelling Test next week so this is their Christmas homework as well.

Times Tables, Reading and Spellings should all be practiced over the Christmas Holidays if possible.
Many Thanks,
Miss Clough.

Year 5 – Dewa Trip

We’ve had a fabulous time in Chester today. Children got the chance to go on a march with a Roman solider this morning and then spent the afternoon in the museum looking at old ancient ruins/artefacts. Their Roman numeral knowledge and Latin was put to the test and our recent history work in school meant the children were engaged and knowledgeable about the Roman period!
