Welcome to Class 6!
As part of our Community Link, we are going to raise money for a charity that rescues abandoned dogs and re homes them or re trains them as therapy dogs. Each child in the class has been given a booklet with activities in and we are asking those, who would like to, to make a bag of dog biscuits that we will sell on the school yard before the summer holidays.
If you would like to help, please bag the biscuits in 12 (large) or 24 (small) and let us know the ingredients. Myself and Mrs Ward will then place a sticker on each bag clearly labelling the ingredients.
There are plenty of dog biscuit recipes online, but here are a few links to get you started!

We are learning about Islam and have had our virtual mosque visit. We are now having a question and answer session with Fatima! Some great questions being asked. Charlie has just asked about the call to prayer.

We have had such fun learning about South America and comparing it to the U.K. The children have produced some amazing work and we really enjoyed our parade yesterday!
Please please please ensure your child reads regularly during the week. They should be aiming to read every day at home and (usually) twice a week there will be set reading homework linked to the class novel - if they don't keep up with this then they will find the lessons in school difficult. Please support your child at home to help them catch up - especially following such a long time out of school. Thank you.
