Meet Our Mighty Falcons...

Hello and welcome to the Y5/6 Falcons family! We are very proud of the warm atmosphere we have in class and our new recruits fit right in - we are very pleased to be in the company of such a positive, friendly, upbeat group of children and predict a wonderful year ahead!

All the adults in Falcons work very hard to enable the children to be the very best they can possibly be - both academically and in terms of their wellbeing.  Mrs Bostock's expertise and knowledge is indispensable to us all, and we are joined by Mrs Edmunds this year - a welcome addition with her wealth of skills! We also have Mrs Fairhurst, Mrs Rae, Mrs Hunter and Ms Paradiso contributing to give the children a rounded and interesting curriculum each week.

Good communication and mutual support between home and school is at the heart of our practice in Falcons and valued highly. Parents, your children come first, so please get in touch if you have any questions or concerns, no matter how trivial these may seem - we are here to help and keep everyone as happy as we can!

With warmest wishes,

Miss Kerr

Cycling success

Congratulations to everyone who took the Cycling Proficiency Test on Friday 29th September. They all passed not only Level 1 but Level 2, which is very unusual. Thank you to the staff and volunteers who made it happen. 

Show and Tell

On Wednesday, we experienced some extreme scootering in the school playground! We were so impressed that Curie class had to get involved and watch too - there's nothing like jumping over your brother on a scooter to create a bit of excitement!

Crime and Punishment

We have now begun our topic of crime and punishment, which we are all very excited about! We've started by looking at the middle ages and the punishments and crimes that were common during the Anglo-Saxon period. The children learned all about the stocks, gibbet and the ordeals of fire, water and combat. They also did some beautiful sketches of these last week too!

KS2 trip to Chedworth Roman Villa

On Monday 10th July the whole of Key Stage 2 visited Chedworth Roman Villa to help bring our Romans topic to life. It was a really magical day.

We all experienced being archaeologists by working out what the Romans would have eaten and drunk by studying real artefacts, such as bones, rocks, metalware and earthenware.

We also had an amazing tour of the excavated site and could imagine what it would have been like to take a bath (a lot of oil and scraping), dine, make offerings to the gods, walk along the beautiful and intricate mosaics and use the 'lavatorium'!

In one workshop we dressed up as Roman slaves and were allocated jobs. We had to wear tags around our necks and sacks as tunics. We also ground up herbs and spices that the Romans would have used to cure illnesses or help people sleep.

A lot of fun was had and a lot of learning was done by all!

Year 5/6 Sharing Assembly

Well done to all of the Year 5 and 6 children who took part in our sharing assembly and thank you to all parents who were able to come and see it. Great enthusiasm during the team building afterwards too!
