Welcome back to school! We hope you had a wonderful summer holiday are ready for the final year of Primary School.
We started back with a bang, getting stuck into our writing using this term's class novel, 'Journey to the River Sea' by Eva Ibbotson. We will be studying 'The Americas' in our topic this term with a particular focus on The Amazon Rainforest and Brazil.
We are excited about our Maths Mastery learning in year 6, exploring numbers and explaining our thinking.
And of course, we cannot wait to take the class to Chichester harbour for our CYE residential trip aboard the TS Resolute.
REMEMBER that swimming begins this week: Every TUESDAY for all groups. Make sure you have your swimming kit at school on these days: suitable trunks or swimsuit (no bikinis), hat, goggles and towel all in a drawstring bag.(Swimming will replace the children's indoor PE session.)
WORK OF THE WEEK
Well done to ALL OF YEAR 6 ! Your Amazon Rainforest homework was truly inspired. We had posters, leaflets, powerpoint presentations, reports and Top Trumps! Well done everyone, what a great start to the year!
Well done to the following pupils for being elected House Captains for the Summer term:
In Year 6, 4 students are chosen to be on the school council and they have much more responsibility than in previous years. Very well done to Sophie, Dylan, Isabel and Elishka who are going to be doing the job for us this year.
Drama based on our class novel 'Journey to the River Sea'. We had to act out 4 of the main roles, empathising with the characters and the way they behaved. We then used our ideas to write our own story continuations.
This year we will be studying the following curriculum:
Autumn: we start our adventure with our topic ‘The Americas' where we will be exploring the wonders of South America with a particular focus on the Amazon Rainforest. Our class novel will be 'Journey to the River Sea'. We will then read the fantastic fantasy novel, Skellig, by David Almond. Skellig is an award winning novel which has won both the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year and the Carnegie Medal from the Library Association. Later on, we will look at healthy living and the heart using our book Pig Heart Boy. We will consider the debate around organ donation and learn how this vital organ works and is structured.
Spring: our topic is World War 2 and the Battle of Britain. We will look at the impact this event had on Britain during the war and how it impacted on Chobham too. We will read the novel 'Once' by Morris Gleitzman to bring other aspects of WW2 alive to the children.
In addition, It will be very exciting taking on the additional responsibilities that Year 6 pupils are given: House Captains, assembly set-up and being responsible for the audio equipment and PowerPoint in assemblies. We will be very proud of being given such responsibilities and will endeavour to be the best of role models.

We Loved World Book Day this year. Dressing up as our favourite J.K. Rowling characters was brilliant and we really enjoyed moving around the school, visiting the themed classrooms. Our favourite was definitely the Year 4 'Space' theme.
