Science day fun!

Sackville Taster Day!



Class five have had a busy week and managed to fit in lots. They have learnt about translating shapes and done some brilliant poetry work on the senses. Here is a snippet from Daniel's brilliant poem:


 Such a sight I saw:

An awesome aeroplane disappearing into the clouds,

Making holes in the bright clouds,

It amazes me like a shooting star,

Such a sight I saw.


Happy half-term from Class 5! 


Class Five have finished Shackleton's Journey in English and thoroughly enjoyed re-enacting parts and writing powerful quotes to end the story.

They have learnt about shape in maths and been recounting their time at Goodwood.

Have a restful weekend Class 5!

Goodwood Day 3!

we have had a brilliant time at Dell Quay today. We learnt a lot about tides and sea defences and the wildlife on the coast.

out favourite part was going crabbing- we loved it!! 

Then, when we were fifteen minutes from home, we broke down and Miss Howells had to call the police to escort us off the coach. It was a very exciting end to our trip!

Class 5 have had another great week and completed some brilliant Remembrance work. Please see the poem below which was written by one of the class!

Lest We Forget


Lest we forget the gallant and brave,

Lest we forget the peace that they made.

They will not grow old but stay fresh in our minds,

we hope they are safe beyond the skies.

All the bullets and guns whistle by,

we do not realise until you say goodbye.

So we would like you to wear a poppy today,

and celebrate them,  hip hip hooray.
