Morrells Wood farm

What a great day at the farm working out the perimeter, collecting data using data loggers and working toward farming and agriculture award and making boats and paper. We enjoyed working on our resilience pillars.




This afternoon, we have been learning about the battle between Guthrum and Alfred the Great, where Alfred ended up fleeing to Somerset. This resulted in a peace treaty between the two. As part of this, we recreated a “shield wall” which Alfred used in the battle.

Did you manage to stop the opposition getting through?


Today we have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons. We created a comic strip all about King Alfred the Great and about his time as King.

What do you think it was like to be a king in Anglo-Saxon times?

Stone Age


In class 6, we went up to the woods to take pictures of things for our keynotes, we took pictures things that the people in the stone age would of used.

Do you know what things were used in the stone age?



Homework projects

What super projects we have had. Everyone has done so much research over the holidays about our new topic- the Stone Age.  What new facts did you learn?


Writing our poppies and researching our heroes!


This afternoon we cut out our poppies and wrote a message to the soldiers that fought for us in the war.


After that, we researched some facts about the heroes that are shown on the website. We found out some interesting facts. For example, did  you know that Winston Churchill was the British prime minister? Or that William John Streets was a soldier and a famous poet?

What facts have you found out?

El Dorado

We have painted what we think El Dorado (the Lost City of Gold) would like. How do think it might look?


Sir Walter Raleigh

Today we have been researching the life and times of Sir Walter Raleigh. We have created a timeline of his life as well as keynotes about him. Did you know he went to the Amazon Rainforest to search for El Dorado (the Lost City of Gold). Do you think he found it?

Amazon Rainforest

Welcome back for the summer term. This term class 6 will be learning about Rainforests. We will be focussing on the Amazon Rainforest. We have already learnt that it can be found in South America and is home to many animals and tribes.

Animating myths

We have been learning about Viking myths. Today we had to animate the myth ‘Odin’s thirst for knowledge’.
