Our topic: My Way or the Highway - The Tudors!


Stepping back in time, children will find themselves back in the court of some of Britain’s most authoritarian and unforgiving monarchs. Children will learn about how Henry VIII’s break from the Roman Catholic Church changed the face of Britain forever, alongside what impact the dissolution of the monasteries had upon Kirkstall Abbey.

This is our second class text for the autumn term: The Executioner's Daughter by Jane Hardstaff.

Well done to Year 6 who raised money for Children in Need by holding a non-uniform day in school.

Some more of our children have braved the rain today to help out Horsforth in Bloom.

Another group of our Year 6 children have been helping out Horsforth in Bloom this week. It looks like they've done a brilliant job!

This week in Year 6, the children have been working in partnership with Horsforth in Bloom to revive the planters on New Roadside. Watch out for their daffodil bulbs coming up in the spring!

We have now finished our first class novel: Treason by Berlie Doherty. Despite a really sad start to the book, there was a happy ending!

Just finished in time for half term! Tudor portraits of the children as nobility in the style of Hans Holbein.

Using eggs to represent the cells in our body, the children demonstrated the process of osmosis using water and food colouring.

Halloween costumes today - don't Year Six look amazing?

Our trip to Kirkstall Abbey. We learnt all about how the Act of Supremacy led to the dissolution of the monasteries and the effect this had upon Kirkstall Abbey and its local people.

We an amazing afternoon learning about the function of the lungs in our bodies. Have you ever felt a sheep's lungs and trachea before? It's unbelievable how light they feel!

Our first science lesson! Locating and analysing the four chambers of the heart and its main veins and arteries.
