Welcome to Cedar Class

 

Class Teachers - Mr. Mark Bradley

Mrs. Daphne Gray

Here we are at the last term of the year/ last term at Roundhill Primary School for the Year 6 children.

 

We have some fun things planned for the term including the trip to Cadbury's World as part of our Mayans enquiry - please keep the payments coming, as it would be a shame to have to cancel due to lack of funds

PE days remain the same (Tuesday and Thursday). It is expected every child will bring a PE kit to  change into. Anyone without kit will be required to borrow a school one. Long hair should be  tied back and all jewellery should be removed.

As we are still adhering to the government advice on keeping classrooms ventilated, please  make sure your child has a jumper to wear in class (it can get chilly!).

Children will continue to wash/ sanitise their hands regularly throughout the day.

We advise each child brings a water bottle as the fountains are still turned off.

TERM 5 WEEK 3 SPELLINGS

The Promise

We have been reading the book 'The Promise' which is about changing, growing and seeing the beauty in nature.

The children started by creating a dull, drab and desolate cityscape in line with the beginning of the book, then they gradually added the beauty of flowers and colour.

The Promise by Nicola Davies

Parts of a flowering plant

The children dissected a daffodil and found out what each part's purpose was in the reproduction of flowering plants.
