Buzzard

Term 6 – 2022

WELCOME BACK to the start of the final term of the year!

We have got a great deal going on this term as we continue our learning theme of ‘Why is Power Important?’ .  The book we are using in Buzzard Class for the next few week is this:

It is a cracking book that clearly explains about politics, from times of the Ancient Greeks, the Monarchy, the UK and US system – right up to the present day.  The children are learning about how our parliament works, the power of people and the media as well as the power we all hold.  It will be an interesting few weeks as the children will be creating their own political parties and manifestos – can’t wait.

This all ties in very well with our school parliament sessions, where the year 5s and 6s lead a group of all ages to talk about issues – school or wider (environment for example).

Next week our class are off to East Quay in Watchet for the day which we can’t wait to do – to actually get out and about is very exciting.  The children will be given a tour of the gallery and have an artists workshop.

If there is ever anything you would like to talk to Mrs Elms or Mrs Barker about, please do not hesitate to drop us a line info@ppsa.theplt.org.uk or contact the school office to make an appointment, tel: 01278 684151

For our Year 6s this week sees the return of SATs.  There are papers every day until Thursday, and they are working EXCEPTIONALLY hard.  We are so proud of them doing their very best and that is all we can ask for. You’ve got this Year 6s!

The rest of Buzzard Class this week have had their heads down learning all about Ancient Greece which is all part of our learning theme for terms 5 and 6 – Who Holds the Power?

Our book, Who Let the God’s Out? by Maz Evans is a big hit with the children and we are using it for both reading and writing and links superbly with our theme.

A reminder to all that it is our Family Picnic and Jubilee Celebrations on Thursday 26th May – if you would like to order a cream tea, let us know by 13th May.

If you ever want to talk to us about anything, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Either via the school office or email info@ppsa.theplt.org.uk
