Welcome to Amethyst Class which is home to Year 5/6.

Miss Davis is the class teacher and Amethyst is also supported by our Teaching Assistant Miss Pluck.

Autumn Term 1

This half-term our topic is called "Scramble!" 

We are learning all about the Battle of Britain and its significance in British history. 


The children have quickly settled back into life at school and have already done lots of learning!  Can you explain why Blitzkrieg was such an effective strategy during the Second World War?  If not, ask a pupil in Amethyst Class and they will be able to tell you why!

Trip to Imperial War Museum: Duxford

Amethyst Class had a brilliant trip to the air museum at Duxford in September.  Two volunteers from The Duxford Radio Trust volunteered to meet our party and taught the children how to write their name in Morse Code!

Wonderful writing!

We have produced some super non-fiction writing related to our topic so far.  This week we have been thinking about the reasons why Britain ultimately won the Battle of Britain and writing our own explanation texts to share this with yet-to-be-informed readers.
