October is the month of the rosary
In class, the children have been leading us in saying the rosary. It is a beautiful way to start the day. Why not try saying the rosary at home by following this guide.

War and Peace
This term, we will be learning about war, focusing predominantly on World War Two. We will be asking ourselves BIG QUESTIONS such as 'Is it right to fight?', 'What is a refugee?' and 'Is it possible to achieve world peace?'. To support us in our learning, we will be reading some fantastic books starting with 'Letters from the lighthouse' by Emma Carroll.

As part of Black History Month and our topic 'War and Peace', we have been learning about Walter Tull. Walter was one of the first black football players in the league AND became the first black man to become an Officer in the British army. He is reported to have been incredibly brave. Sadly, he died in battle in 1918. If you want to learn more about Walter, please click on his picture.
'Letters from the Lighthouse' by Emma Carroll
Year 6 have began reading this wonderful book in class. Each morning group is at a different point in the novel, so we have recorded from Chapter 1 - Chapter 6. We would like all children to have listened to all of these chapters before our return to school.
Mrs Tompkins's group - start at Chapter 1
Miss Thompson's group - start at Chapter 3
Mrs Twycross's group - start at Chapter 5
Alternatively, you are very welcome to listen to all of the chapters again!
We will also be reading 'The boy at the back of the class' by Onjali Q Raúf, 'Rose Blanche' by Roberto Inncenti and Ian Mcwan, and the beautiful picture book 'The Arrival' by Shaun Tan which each prompt discussions about the effects of war and choices that we make.
