This week, Hope class voted on who they wanted to represent our class for school parliament. We were so impressed with how many of the children wanted to become an MP and were blown away by the amazing manifestos they had written. Congratulations to Peter and Talon for being voted as our MPs for 2020/21!
In English this week, we linked in our topic of WW2 and explored the lives of evacuees. We looked at old documents from that era, found out what process evacuees had to go through and some children even interviewed their grandparents to get a better insight! After, the children wrote letters as if they were evacuees - they were all so fantastic and really captured what it must have been like!
We are unable to sing at the moment, but in music we found a way around this - using sign language! Children listened to the beat of the song, and learnt how people who are hard of hearing feel the music. Then, we learnt sign language to Livin On a Prayer by Bon Jovi and it looked INCREDIBLE! Thank you for another awesome week.

We have had another super week in Hope class! This week, in English, we worked on creating a narration in the style of David Attenborough. The children researched their sea creature and then used the facts they had found to write some amazing narrations. See videos of their performances below!
In PSHE, the children created pieces of art surrounding rights they think everyone should have to achieve equality. Many focused on 'No matter who you are or what you look like, you have the right to be treated equally'. The posters that they made were superb and very touching - Hope class is full of the most kind and caring children!

Welcome back Year 6s! After a long 5 months off, the children have come back with amazing attitudes and are definitely ready to learn. We have been so impressed by how hard they have worked this week and are sure they will keep amazing us. Thank you for being such an awesome class!
This week we started our new topic, WW2. The children worked hard to produce beautiful timelines of the events that lead up to the announcement of the war.
We also started our class book 'The Emergency Zoo' which is linked to our topic. In Guided Reading, we used our prediction skills to predict the plot of the book just from the front cover - some children were incredibly close!
