My favourite book is Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. Having been an avid horse rider for most of my life, I was over the moon when I first discovered this book when I was around ten years old. I remember the excitement of turning the first page and feeling like I was being transported back in time to something quite magical. Black Beauty is a touching story told from the view point of a black horse who recounts the tales of his life. From his simple beginnings as a foal in a meadow through the ups and downs and twists and turns, Black Beauty tells his own story which illustrates the importance of kindness towards animals. I have read this book so many times and I can honestly say that the more I read it, the better it gets!

My favourite book is The Nowhere Emporium by Ross McKenzie. When I first got my hands on it, I read the whole book in one day! The story is about a boy called Daniel who stumbles across a shop that contains magic and wonders beyond belief. However, when the shop's existence is threatened, Daniel and his newfound friends are thrown into a world of danger. With its extraordinary characters and exciting plot, this book keeps you on your toes and is impossible to put down!

Hello everybody and welcome to our class page. In Year 5 and 6 for this half term, we will be exploring measurement and statistics for our maths lessons and in addition to this, we will be consolidating our previous learning through daily recap questions as well as weekly arithmetic lessons every Friday.
 
For our English, we will be focusing on the writing purpose ‘to entertain’. We will be exploring the book ‘Malamander’ by Thomas Taylor and children will be working towards the final writing outcome of writing their own invented chapter for the novel. In Reading, we will be exploring different cultures through the book ‘Journey to Jo’burg’ by Beverley Naidoo and the children will be focusing on making inferences. This links in with our history learning where we will be studying The Cornish Rebellion and the journey they made to London.
 
Our focus for science this half term is properties and changes of materials. During this topic, we will be comparing and grouping together everyday materials based on their properties, using our knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated and demonstrate and explain the differences between reversible and irreversible changes.
 
For our RE, we will be exploring the key question ‘What do Christians believe Jesus did to ‘save’ people?’ and children will be exploring the ways in which Jesus’ sacrifice can guide Christian's choices and beliefs today. We cannot wait to share with you all our fantastic learning.
