As we approach half term Crocodile class would love to share with you all the fantastic learning that has been taking place in year 6.

We have been extremely busy and thoroughly enjoyed our new topic, ‘Danger’. We have been lucky enough to receive visits from the RNLI, Air Ambulance, Police Force and Fire Service. We have learnt all about the important jobs the emergency services do to help and protect us. As a class we have learnt different first aid techniques and how to call the emergency services should we ever need them!

Our English lessons have been based around The Great Fire of London. We have acted out the story, learnt all about Samuel Pepys and even made our own class bakery coal oven. We have also made a fantastic class display with flashing lights to represent the flames as houses and buildings burnt on Pudding Lane in 1666

                                                                                                                                 Coralie says we are all impressing her in maths. We are learning to use money in real-life situations, tell the time, subtract 2 and 3 digit numbers and we are also learning about capacity in litres and millilitres.

Finally, we must not forget to mention how hard we have been working in JRock rehearsals. We are so looking forward to performing at the Guildhall next month. We hope to see you all there!

Hello, as we approach the end of our first term, we would like to share with you all the exciting learning that has been taking place in Crocodile class.

Our term has been extremely busy but exciting too! We have been learning how to sequence and order numbers in maths and also learning to tell the time. In English our lessons have been based around lots of different books, some of which include: Giraffes Can’t Dance, The Scarecrow’s Wedding, I Must Bring a Hat and Bedtime for Monsters. We have been learning how to write interesting sentences and write alternative versions of stories, we have used drama and role play to help us do this.

We have had lots of fun during our Topic lesson; ‘Family, Food and Fun’. We have learnt about different celebrations and festivals around the world, produced some healthy food ideas to eat and planned a birthday party menu to share with other children in the school.

We must not forget to mention our wonderful Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) day which focussed on France. We had our very own Cliffdale Tour de France, flew from Heathrow to Paris (first class of course!) and had a French themed celebration party with the rest of upper school.

We have also been lucky enough to go to Forest school, swimming and kayaking this term! Coralie is extremely proud of us too as we have all gained a bronze award certificate and we are now working towards our silver award! We are very much looking forward to our next term in Crocodile class.

Welcome to Crocodile Class

We have 12 pupils in our class, there are 6 girls and 6 boys and we are all in Year 6.

Coralie is our teacher and we also have 3 teaching assistants too. These are Sam, Cheryl and Hannah.

We have already had a busy start to the Autumn term; we have been kayaking, taken part in Forest School with Fran, had a fun team day together and had a fantastic upper school topic launch day. Our topic this term is called ‘Family, Fun and Food’.

We are also proud to have two school councillors elected from Crocodile Class, Elle and Caitlin. They will both do a terrific job!

We are all looking forward to learning lots this term and filling up our Bronze Award Cards with positive comments and seeing who will be the first to get their certificate!

The rest of the school year is going to be just as busy with lots of activities lined up. We have the chance to go on a residential trip to Fairthorne Manor, take part in our school JRock dance performance at the Guildhall in Portsmouth and we will also be going swimming this year too.
