On Monday, the year five boys and the year six boys went on times table rockstars and the winner had to have the most points. The year six boys won by a little bit but it was very close. It started at nine o’clock and ended at three pm, we did some in the morning and some after lunch.
Today in maths we continued on with simplifying fractions down to their smallest form.
Also today, during computing, we typed up newspaper reports: they were about the Christmas truce. This is our cold task. Here are some pictures.
This week is anti-bullying week ; our theme is We Choose Respect. In our collective worship on Monday we watched a video with children talking about what respect means. In class we got into 2s or 3s and we got given a letter from the word respect and had to write down words that relate to respect and draw pictures to represent this. This is the poster promoting anti-bullying week.
Today we watched the Christmas Truce from World War 1. It was a video in the form of the Sainsbury’s 2014 Christmas advert. In the film, Jim – a soldier from the trenches – takes the brave step over the top where he meets Otto a German soldier. The troops exchange gifts, play football and enjoy Christmas together.
We have started to write letters from Jim to Rose – his wife. We will finish these off tomorrow and add them onto our classroom display.
We have also displayed all of our poppies and creative soldier silhouettes around the school – please do take the time to look and read these.
Yesterday we began preparations for the Remembrance service on Friday. In our class and other classes, and maybe around other towns, there are perspex soldiers which are meant to be there but not there. The soldiers are meant to be remembered in your heart but you can’t see them, that’s why they’re transparent.
Also in the morning, during English, we were given a letter (written by a First World War soldier) between our talking partner. We were also given a question sheet which we had to complete into our books. Here are some of our answers!

Today (in Topic\computing) we were researching about WW1 – The Wiltshire regiment. We found lots of facts. Our best fact was their motto:
Honi soit qui mal y Pense (shame be he who thinks evil of it)
We have also got the start of an amazing display – thanks to Mrs Burley.
