Welcome back to a new school year! And what a great start we've had. We hit the ground running and went straight into our learning on Thursday. In English, we've started reading 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret' and written descriptive pieces about the setting of the story. Check out these fantastic passages the children wrote on Friday:

In Science we've learnt about how light travels and took part in a test to find the line of incident and reflection. See us in action below:

On Friday 18th May, a group of children from year 5 & 6 attended the local Rotary's 'Festival of Youth', which consisted of an evening of food, music and presentations. Felix, Charisma, Isaac and Sam attended to celebrate winning the annual year 6 Rotary quiz and Thomas and Lola were invited because their winning 'Royal Wedding' poems. Mrs Lawrence and parents also attended and all had a thoroughly enjoyable evening!

On Tuesday evening, a group of year 5 children represented the school in the regional maths challenge. Aidan, Harry, Thomas and Tayla went to Westfield School to answer some extremely challenging maths questions and compete against other schools from the area. We didn't make it through to the final, however the team did us proud with their impeccable behaviour, enthusiasm and excellent team work. Well done team Earith!

Happy Half Term from everyone in Hedgehog class

We're so incredibly proud of the year sixes for the effort and dedication they put into their SATs last week. All gave their very best! A big thank you to Mrs Austen for getting our brains warmed up with sensory circuits every morning before the tests.

We're also proud of the year 4's and 5's in Hedgehog class, who had to be extremely flexible all week and get on with their work with a high level of independence- what a great bunch of role-models.

Welcome back to the summer term! We launched our topic on World War 2 this week. We've learnt why the war started and who the Allies and Axis powers were. We've also made our own gas masks and written a set of instructions explaining how we did it.

In maths, we've been looking at ratios and have done some practical tasks to compare amounts of different objects and then simplify our answers. Here we are having fun and learning at the same time!

This last two weeks in Hedgehog Class have been just super! Not only have we had Egyptian day- where we learnt about mummification and made Egyptian artefacts.

But we have also enjoyed a week of 'book week', focusing on Anthony Browne books and producing our own versions of 'Voices in the Park'. As well as this, we re-vamped our book corner with inspirational quotes and memes to encourage more children to read. I'm proud to say that our design caught the attention of Book Club and we WON the Book Club competition!

It seems that the class are on a winning streak at the moment, as the year sixes also took park and won the 2018 year 6 Rotary quiz. With only a team of four up against much larger schools, this was a huge achievement! Well done team Earith!

Finally, a huge 'well done' to Hedgehogs for entertaining the crowd on Friday afternoon with their super assembly. They've worked so hard and produced some fabulous work! :)
