In our Art Lessons, we made poppies out of clay. After painting them, we placed them in the fields of Great Bentley, to commemorate the fallen in Flanders Fields. 


Lest We Forget...

Conflict... Continued!

This term we have been looking at World War One, and the children have produced some incredible written work, as well as fantastic clay poppies in art. Please see below for pictures. 

For the rest of the term, we will be exploring World War Two. Watch this space for news on our Evacuee Day in December!...



Homework will continue to go out on the Thursday of every week, to be handed back in on Tuesdays. Please could homework be marked with your child at home. Then both Miss White and Mrs Stacey can look over any misconceptions with individual children. If your child is experiencing any difficulties with homework, they are welcome to attend Mrs Stacey's homework club on a Thursday lunch time. 



On the 7th November, the children went to the Imperial War Museum. The behaviour of our pupils was exemplary, and they greatly enjoyed the galleries. In one exhibition they even got to sit in an Anderson Shelter! On the 9th November, the children walked down to the War Memorial to commemorate the centenary of WW1. They planted the crosses of the 31 Great Bentley soldiers with care and respect... Well done Year 6!


 Our Year 6s are really enjoying the comfy reading area... find a comfy place at home to relax with a good book! As Dr Seuss said: "The more read the more you'll know, the more things you'll learn the more places you go!" 

Please click on our link for the Yr 6 Essential Reads List... the challenge is to read as many of these books as possible!








Look at the photos below to explore our testing of "trench food" , and our exploration of historical sources...
