Write a home fire escape plan.
Try and remember to include the key features: exit route from each room; keep stairways clear; accessible door keys; meeting point and place to phone 999 from.
During this term,each individual has chosen a topic that interests them. They will benefit from this opportunity as it will teach them to be more independent. It will be enthralling to see everybody's different passions and ideas to learn about for the next eight weeks.
The learning is growing as SAT'S is approaching. Last term the teachers formed SAT's club for the year sixes to attend to improve their maths skills. Since the club was organised the
year sixes feel that they have progressed in their learning and they have a lot more confidence,knowledge and belief in themselves.
In English this this term our focus point is using registers and tenses correctly. Every week we will be writing a double page spread about their chosen topic. Also we will be writing our own ghost story based on our class text. In our maths we will be examining different ways to analyse and record data on a graph. We will be having times tables practice every day and a test every week.
In conclusion, this term will not only be important but also very exciting and interesting.

STAND AND DELIVER
This term our topic is ‘Stand and Deliver. We are looking forward to learning about the poem ‘The Highwayman’ and setting up a courtroom in the classroom (where we will all be the lawyers) to decide whether the Highwayman is innocent or guilty! Also during we are investigating electricity in science and design and technology. Willow are elated because we are of composing our own jazz piece in music using all kinds of instruments.
In P.E everyone is delighted to be choreographing our own skeleton dances and playing tag rugby.
In ICT we will be gathering, analysing and interpreting our own data and information to present to the class in maths. On the 17th of January we will be going to the science centre at Queen Mary’s College to develop our understanding of electricity and how components work.
Willow class will really enjoy this term as there are many more exciting activities in store.

Willow class were so excited to find out that there topic was Titanic. So, far we have done RIC, which means retrieve, interpret and choose in reading. In topic work we have also begun to use role play to identify with the excitement and incredulous feelings of the passengers preparing to board Titanic - "The Ship of Dreams".

Our Sea City trip to Southampton was a wonderful day. Activities such as, man the lifeboats, role-play, Morse coding and scientific study of the reasons behind the sinking, provided us with a greater insight into our topic.
Primary evidence, a set of keys, was fascinating to see, as well as discovering the story behind them. Our expert tour guide told us many amazing facts. (Including one woman who wanted to go back for her toothbrush!)
We discovered that one of our classmates is a distant cousin of the youngest Titanic survivor, Millvina Dean. Our guide's wife is also a relative of Millvina so new family links were made.
The Mystery about the Bizarre Parachute.
Rucstall Primary School have discovered a mysterious parachute in the middle of the school field. Amongst the equipment we found a blue parachute with orange rope, a expensive Go-Pro, a helmet with a DSLR camera mounted on it and a small blue jumpsuit. But it has been laid out perfectly neatly. We are investigating how it got there, when it got there and why it has been laid out so particularly. Was it a crash landing? Was it an escaped prisoner? Was it James Bond? Can you help?
Willow class have been basing their narrative writing on the peculiar parachute with their wild imaginations. They have been given help by their wonderful teachers, Miss Roberts and Mrs Valles. Willow class have been working extremely well this week on their stories about the spontaneously appearing parachute.
We will update you soon when we find out more!
