Growing Towards Tomorrow


Spring Term English

This term we will explore the fantastic animation ‘The Piano’ by Aidan Gibbons.  Here we see a lone man playing an enchanting melody on the piano and reminiscing about his life - the highs and the lows.  Pupils will create their own narratives retelling the events highlighted in the piece.

We are also looking forward to building on our connections with the residents of Chowdene Bank Care Home.  Each child has received a wonderful postcard from an elderly resident at the care home.  We will be writing letters to them over the next few weeks to brighten their day as part of our Penpal project.

Autumn Term English

Children have been immersed in the world of The Hobbit by J RR Tolkien this half term.  They have thoroughly enjoyed a series of role play and creative writing activities inspired by the text.

Talk 4 Writing


During the autumn term we have studied the work of JRR Tolkien. His hobbit fantasy land has been a wonderful subject to describe, full of magic and enchantment. 

Text mapping, reading as a reader, boxing up of ideas and innovating our own opening chapter has been a lot of fun.  We have thoroughly enjoyed magpieing ideas and entertaining the reader.



Did you know, year 6 have became Volcano Experts?  As part of our English and Geography topic work we have set out to learn as much as we can about this dangerous land form.   Pupil have immersed themselves an a range of research materials to develop a secure understanding of how volcanoes erupt and how they form.


Using publishing skills they have created their own Volcano fact pages, full of exciting and interesting nuggets of information to engage the reader.
