6X The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of thirteen dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an unexpected journey `there and back again'. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon...
6Y The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q Rauf
A child's perspective on the refugee crisis, highlighting the importance of friendship and kindness in a world that doesn't always make sense. There used to be an empty chair at the back of my class, but now a new boy called Ahmet is sitting in it. He's nine years old (just like me), but he's very strange. He never talks and never smiles and doesn't like sweets - not even lemon sherbets, which are my favourite! But then I learned the truth: Ahmet really isn't very strange at all. He's a refugee who's run away from a War. A real one. With bombs and fires and bullies that hurt people. And the more I find out about him, the more I want to help. That's where my best friends Josie, Michael and Tom come in. Because you see, together we've come up with a plan. . .
6Z Can You See Me? by Libby Scott and Rebecca Westcott

Tally is ten years old and she's just like her friends. Well, sometimes she is. If she tries really hard to be. Because there's something that makes Tally not the same as her friends. Something she can't cover up, no matter how hard she tries: Tally is autistic.

Tally's autism means there are things that bother her even though she wishes they didn't. It means that some people misunderstand, her and feel frustrated by her.

People think that because Tally's autistic, she doesn't realise what they're thinking, but Tally sees and hears - and notices - all of it. And, honestly? That's not the easiest thing to live with.

My Mother Saw a Dancing Bear

by Charles Causley

I am Daniel

I am sam 

Sam I am 

That Sam-I-am 

That Sam-I-am!

I do not like that Sam-I-am


Do you like green eggs and ham? 


I do not like them Sam-I-am. 

I do not like Green eggs and ham. 


Would you like them here or there? 


I would not like them here or there, 

I would not like them anywhere. 

I do not like green eggs and ham. I do not like them Sam-I-am


Would you like them in a house? 

Would you like them with a mouse? 


I do not like them in a house, 

i do not like them with a mouse, 

I do not like them here or there, 

I do not like them anywhere. 

I do not like Green eggs and ham. 

I do not like them, Sam-I-am. 


(Extract from the book)

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves

   Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
   And the mome raths outgrabe.


"Beware the Jabberwock, my son
   The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
   The frumious Bandersnatch!"


He took his vorpal sword in hand;
   Long time the manxome foe he sought
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
   And stood awhile in thought.


And, as in uffish thought he stood,
   The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
   And burbled as it came!


One, two! One, two!

And through and through
   The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
   He went galumphing back.


"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
   Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
   He chortled in his joy.


'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
   Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
   And the mome raths outgrabe.

My mother saw a dancing bear
By the schoolyard, a day in June.
The keeper stood with chain and bar
And whistle-pipe, and played a tune.


And bruin lifted up its head
And lifted up its dusty feet,
And all the children laughed to see
It caper in the summer heat.


They watched as for the Queen it died.
They watched it march. They watched it halt.
They heard the keeper as he cried,
‘Now, roly-poly﹗’ ‘Somersault﹗’


And then, my mother said, there came
The keeper with a begging-cup,
The bear with burning coat of fur,
Shaming the laughter to a stop.


They paid a penny for the dance,
But what they saw was not the show;
Only, in bruin’s aching eyes,
Far-distant forests, and the snow


Rainforest Week 02 - 06/03/2020

The Year 6's that stayed at school this week, have been doing a project on rainforests.


They have carried out research on the chrome books, watched David Attenborough, visited the school library and then used all of the information gathered to make a flip book. This included information about the structure of rainforests, the animals and foods you may find in them and the effects of deforestation.


Everyone enjoyed having the opportunity to look at, describe and taste different fruits from the rainforest. This included papaya, passion fruit, figs and sharon fruit. Many of the children were pleasantly surprised with how tasty some were.


Throughout the week, Year 6 were also given the opportunity to act as young leaders for our lower school children. They helped during Year 3's outdoor games afternoon, read with Year 3 and 4 and led games with small groups at playtime.


For our last lesson of the week, we decorated fairy cakes with green icing and snakes to stay on topic! They were enjoyed by all, washed down with a tropical fruit juice.
