Welcome to Classes 13 and 14
Year 6 made Modroc birds with the help of Mr Coombs and Mrs Taylor. The class were inspired by the birds in "The Lost Words": goldfinches, kingfishers, starlings, ravens and larks.
Visit from Author Fleur Hitchcock
Year 6 felt very lucky to receive a visit from children’s author Fleur Hitchcock. Some Year 6 children have been a part of a book club and got to read Fleur’s new book, The Boy Who Flew, before her visit (and the release date). Fleur met with the group to discuss their thoughts and responses to her new book. Fleur then shared her story and journey as a writer with Year 6. It was really interesting to hear about how Fleur’s life experiences have inspired her writing.
‘I enjoyed it (The Boy Who Flew) because it was exciting to read a book that is not even out yet. We got to read a book before anyone else!’
‘The book is a real page-turner and you get put into a whole different world.’
‘I was quite stunned finding out that The Boy Who Flew was rejected 16 times before being published!’

Clifton High School Masterclass - Brilliant Bubbles
The children really enjoyed the opportunity to use specialist science equipment and to work with secondary school chemistry teachers. Year 6 learnt a lot about chemical reactions and the importance of working with precision when carrying out scientific experiments. They thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
Who is responsible for Climate Change?
We thought about our contribution to Climate Change by listing everything we do in a typical day and deciding whether or not it uses fossil fuels. We also learnt about the journey that a loaf of bread goes on – how did a loaf of bread end up in Class 14? Lastly, we learnt about carbon footprints and ranked countries in order from the largest carbon footprint to the smallest – we were all very surprised that United Arab Emirates has the largest!
