6th November


Busy first week back after half term! We're doing our last of the written methods of calculation (division) and then will be moving onto measurement next. They are finishing off a non-fiction book that we have put together for our space experience day, are planning the different experiences we will be offering and will be writing some science fiction stories next.


We are working on music composition and effect so we can create some music for the experience day and will soon be learning about evolution and adaptation so as to create aliens that might live on the planets in our solar system.


We will also be working on modelling with play dough and other resources so that the children can bring to life the Mayan masks they have designed!


Busy Busy :)

We had a visit from the Newbury Astronomers who were kind enough to share their expertise with us after being contacted by a member of the class, the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and learnt a huge amount.

16th October


We've been busy over the past few weeks, the class have settled in well and are working hard on our project. We have had lots of e-mails back from members of industry including the UK Space Agency, Newbury Astronomical Society, Reading and Southampton Universities and others, with some promises of coming in to help us. Phone calls to come!


The children are all making great progress in their maths and working hard.

Amazing day out at the Winchester Science Museum - lots of fun had by all :)

Welcome back to all Year 6 parents and to year 5 parents - Welcome to Hornbeam.


We are having a lovely first day back, creating class values, artwork and growth mindsets to help us become ready for the year ahead.


Please find below the Meet the Teacher presentation that I delivered to a few parents at the end of last term, if you missed it - please look through it and if you have any questions don't hesitate to find me at the door in the mornings and afternoons.


I hope you all had lovely summer breaks :)
