In science , we are learning about the Circulatory system. After researching about the main parts of this system and how they function, the children wrote explanations for a classroom display. Currently, they are in the process of making a board game to consolidate and share their understanding. We are all looking forward to playing each other’s games!

Enthusiasm for books was evident in the array of costumes on show in Trent Class on World Book Day. Their curiosity and thirst for reading a range of genres and author styles indicates a lifelong love of reading, which will not only widen their vocabulary and knowledge but also helped them to introduce younger children to new characters and authors. 

They thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of Mrs Burton’s quiz: solving each clue as it arrived then untangling the letters to form the key word. Well done to Eleanor and Zach who provided us with the locations to search for, and gain, the treasure!

This week Trent Class were learning how to control the ball with a hockey stick as well as learning to dribble with the ball. This activity was about control: control when passing the ball and control when dribbling the ball. After working on these skills with Mr Green, they put them into practise by playing two games of hockey which they thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you for the words and photographs by our correspondent: Hannah.

In keeping with the school’s community ethos, Trent Class took part in a community event this week to support local senior citizens. Reverend Albright invited the children to participate in a function to support Dementia Awareness and to celebrate our older residents, including those who might have dementia. Our Year Sixes sang their own composition:  Jesse Window Shining Bright to the audience and did so as brilliant as the window itself! They did themselves, their parents and their school proud—well done everyone! It was a heart-warming experience, in which many of our children mingled with those who live with dementia and those who care for them.

In order to write a persuasive letter in English, Trent Class have been researching the topic of plastic pollution of the Earth’s oceans, as it is our intention to lobby our local MP about this important issue. The children have been finding information from leaflets, the internet and through images, which they questioned  in great depth. Their emotion and drive for the subject has been impressive to say the least, along with their concern for the living organisms that are being threatened by the irresponsible actions of humans. Mr Adams should brace himself for what promises to be a barrage of solidly supported reasons why this global concern should be placed high on the government’s agenda!

Art skills have been on the agenda for Trent Class this half term. The children have been considering which famous landmark from their chosen continent they would like to portray using the line skills they have been practising. Once they have completed their sketch, they will be applying further skills, using a different medium, to transfer it into a picture worthy of an art gallery! We aim to display a visual global delight for all to enjoy and wonder at!

As part of our geography topic, we have been researching continents and oceans, paying particular attention to the physical and human features of the seven continents.  In order to achieve a broader knowledge of our wonderful world, the children sorted and researched features covering: images of each continent from space; the countries which make up each continent (except one—ask your child which one it is!); mountains, major rivers and cities; flags and currencies; tourist sites and buildings; as well as indigenous peoples and animals. It was a very busy and informative afternoon which we finished with a  delicious taste of Africa, courtesy of 4 super Year 6s and Mrs Smethurst.

For our DT (Ingredients) learning this half term, we are travelling around the continents in Trent Class. Our first trip has been to Asia, where a group of children cooked a vegetarian stir fry, learning and developing their cutting skills, hygiene in the kitchen knowledge as well as safety around the use of kettles and cookers. To the delight of their peers, once finished, the meal was brought into the classroom for everyone to taste and enjoy. Well done Zach, Neve, Eleanor and Cameron for producing such a tasty dish, and many thank s to Mrs Smethurst for helping me take the children on their ‘journey’.

For our ReflectEd sessions, Trent Class have been learning how to use a compass. In order to do this, we have identified the various parts of the instrument and investigated what each one does. Interestingly, the analogy of having a dog and putting him in the shed has been most useful—I’m sure the children can explain that to you! As we have made good progress, we can now take bearings to plan a route to reach a specific destination; next our routes will be tested by our peers and we are hoping no-one will get lost in the school grounds whilst doing this so a search party is not needed!

In order to enhance the children’s understanding of having a disability, specifically being visually impaired, Mr Silver visited Trent Class to share his experiences. Through demonstrations and explanations, he described  his daily challenges and shared what small actions can be taken by the fully sighted to help him, and others in a similar situation. The children listened intently and asked pertinent questions, which both delighted and impressed Mr Silver, whose answers provided the children with the skills to further improve their abilities as good citizens to help others. Thank you Mr Silver and Eve for giving us this superb opportunity for enlightenment.
