Welcome to Wren Class
Wrens are a class of 29 children taught by Miss Hayes.
We are lucky enough to have both year 5 and year 6 in our class this year. This page will show information for Wren class as a whole, some of the information will be specifically for Y5 but most updates will show the exciting activities we have completed as a whole class. If you require information that is specific to Y6 please visit the Golden Eagles / Y6 page.
Each week we will have two bloggers who will tell you all about the work we have been doing. Look out for your child's name!
30.1.17 - 3.11.17
On Tuesday, we had our hook day. We got tags to put on to be evacuated. There were four places to go: Surrey, Cornwall, Devon and Kent. In Surrey, we went into Mr Price's class and we went under a bunch of tables as if it was an air raid shelter. In Miss Hayes' class, we learnt to wrap cloth properly around our injured patients. When we arrived in Cornwall, Miss Brown taught us about ration books and we had to share a slice of bread between four of us. When we arrived in Kent, we learnt two songs and played an instrument with it.
This day was lots of fun and we enjoyed it. Take a look at the pictures below.

25.09.17 - 29.09.17 S.T.A.R.S week
On the 25th -29th September, we were doing our S.T.A.R.S week. We had five learning stars, one for each day at school. The letters stand for: S = stick at it, T = together we learn, A = asking questions, r = recognising links and patterns and S = stop, don't rush! Everyday two people were selected for each star. I (Ellie) was chosen for 'Stop, don't rush!' because during art I took my time and didn't rush to finish even though people were tidying up.

Y5 and Y6's hook day was a Mexican picnic. Miss Hayes gave us a list of possible foods our table group could make. We displayed it on a sheet. That evening, the Y5 and Y6 teachers bought vegetables, wraps and tortillas. The next day half of our class cut vegetables while the other half decorated sombreros. In the afternoon, we chose our dishes. We each went to get a drink and went outside to join the other classes. Although, we were out first. It was delicious and nutritious. We all ate and after a while teachers came round taking photos of children and their sombreros (take a look below). We had a brilliant time! We were sad it had to end.

Reading at Home
Every child in Wren class should be reading 5 times each week. The reads are collected every morning so make sure you bring in your link book!
Make sure you are working hard to improve your times tables each week by practising at home. You could play hit the button, find a new game or make your own match cards and race against yourself!
On the 3rd Thursday of every month we invite you to come into class and see your child in action!
This term Wrens are doing PE on Thursday
Despite this, please make sure children have a PE kit in school everyday as it may be needed for other lessons, such as hook days and topic.
The Y5s are also going swimming this term! Please make sure they have their swimming kit in school on a Friday.
