Dragons’ Den

War Poetry

This half-term, we have been working hard learning about World War I. We have made our own recruitment videos; discussed the role women played in the War Effort and even made a trench in our class room where we recorded a ‘mannequin challenge’ to a popular World War I song!

In Literacy, we have been reading and studying some World War I poetry. We are currently writing our own poems and letters as soldiers from the trenches. We have discussed the importance of remembering the War dead and will be uploading our poems to  http://www.everymanremembered.org/ in order to commemorate some of the soldiers’ lives. If you have any concerns about your child’s poetry being on the internet please talk to me asap.

Love Miss Clifford 🙂

Counter Balances

We have been working in Gymnastic lessons to create interesting counterbalances with a partner. Here are a few pictures of some of the balances that we have come up with so far!

Everyman Remembered

As part of our topic, Britain at War, pupils have been studying and looking at war poetry. We have started writing our own war poems.

As part of the centenary of WW1 The Royal British Legion are trying to make sure everyone is remembered. The children will be publishing their poems on the website www.everymanremembered.org. Please speak to your child’s class teacher if you have any concerns and please read your child’s poem online.

The Dragons will see you now.

Some of Year 6, visited the Community Voluntary Services of Broxbourne to give a boardroom presentation to ‘The Dragons’ for our Dragons’ den project. They spoke with such confidence and eloquence. We are very proud of all the children and the hard work they put into the project. They raised £355.08 for the Ethnic Minority Association of Broxbourne and we are so excited to see that money go to a good cause. 


Look at us go !

We have been working very hard in year 6 over the last term. We really enjoyed reading our class book ,Eren, and are really looking forward to the author coming to visit us. In maths, we have been focusing on our number skills and have been working hard on some practise tests.

Our new topic is Britain at War and we already have some great art work.

Please be reminded about the importance of reading at home and ensure the reading record is signed.

Here are some photos of what we have been up to.

Crucial Crew

After a busy testing week, in which the class have worked extremely hard, we had the chance to get out of school and visit Hertford Regional  College for Crucial Crew. This saw children undertaking a variety of different activities encouraging children to:

  • become more aware of personal safety;
  • learn how to react correctly to dangerous and threatening situations;
  • understand the role the emergency support services play and how and when to contact them and
  • be aware of their own actions and the safety of others.

During the visit, we also took part in the College’s Remembrance Day Parade and I would like to give a big thank you to the class for upholding the minutes silence so impeccably.

All the best,

Miss Clifford 🙂

What a busy half- term!

This half-term has flown by and it has been fantastic! The children have been exploring our new topic-based curriculum and have been looking at ‘The Terrible Tudors.’ To start the topic off, we visited Hampton Court Palace. We then, learnt about Tudor medicine, dancing, sport and art. The pupils particularly enjoyed creating their own Tudor rose using cross stitch and creating their own frame out of wood.

The class have also been taking part in life-saving skills in their swimming lessons. These lessons will continue on Fridays after half- term so please continue to bring your kit. Homework will continue to be due in on a Wednesday and spelling and times table tests are on a Friday. Have a great half- term holiday!
