Year 6 currently each have a log on for a website to support with their SPAG revision. While we are using it in class, children are also expected to access it at home. The website is - if you have forgotten your password, come and see miss Egley for a reminder. 

Payments for our residential to Grendon are due in this term, if you have incomplete payments, please visit the school office to organise a pay schedule or discuss your payment options. 




Well done to all Year 6's who took part in today's egg-stravaganza! All of your design were egg-cellent and it was egg-stremely difficult to choose just one winner 👏🏻

Here is the 3D shape nets game we played in maths today:

On Friday we went on a trip to Holdenby House. It was fantastic! A huge thank you to all the parents who organised fancy dress and costume for the children - it really added to the authenticness of the experience.

Please notice that I have added a new page at the top of this page where you will soon be able to find revision documents to print out at use at home.


I have also created a class folder of SPAG activities here:

Today we planned an investigation to see which type of exercise has more impact on our heart rate. In the pictures below, you can compare Matthew's resting heart rate to his heart rate after he ran around the play ground three times.

We've had a busy week in Oak class this week!

We had a fantastic Science lesson this afternoon - dissecting lamb's hearts - with the help of the Biology Department at The Duston School.

On Friday we learnt about the circulatory system. We used red paper to show oxygenated blood and blue to show deoxygenated blood.

Our visiting artist, Carole Miles, was in this morning. We used different materials and techniques to represent the heart, including wax resistance inking and designing felt hearts. We're looking forward to next week when we get to sew them up!
