Spelling list for Term 6

Term 6 week 1 learning update:


A brilliant first week back after half term. We enjoyed sports day on Thursday afternoon taking part in different events that we had been practising during PE lessons. Today we had our first swimming lesson with coaches Sasha and Nick. They got everyone swimming on our backs with pool noodle floats under our arms. It was wonderful to watch Lion Class in the water. They enjoyed it immensely. 

In English we read a new book called Meet the Ocean by Caryl Hart ( It describes the wonders of the ocean's creatures and landscapes deep under the water. We're using it to write descriptions of the ocean ourselves. 


In Maths we studied measure in length, capacity and mass/weight. We reminded ourselves how many grams in a kilogram, how many centimetres in a metre etc. Then used this information to compare different measures and to read scales. 


On Friday afternoon we finally completed the first step of making our cardboard castles. Some lions said it looked similar to Chepstow Castle that we visited! Next week we will paint them then we will send them home. 


Next week on Thursday 13th June we will be walking to the MAD Olympiad sports morning of activities at Pomphrey Hill. 


Lion Class need to be at school for 8.15 so we can walk there ready for the parade at 9am. Thank you for your support with this. It is a fantastic event to be a part of with other local schools taking part. Children will need a water bottle and ideally a packed lunch in case we are late back to school.
