Welcome to Stonehenge Class!
Hello everyone and welcome to our class page. This is the place to come to access all the home learning activities during this period of school closure. Please use this page to get information about the home learning the children will be asked to do each week.
I want to say a massive thank you to all of you for being so positive about our current situation and for the huge effort you have already put into keeping the learning going. We want you to keep busy and stay happy until we are all back together again.
I will keep looking at Class Dojo to see your lovely messages and photos. Keep sending them to me, they really make me smile!

Welcome to Stonehenge Class
Year 5 and Year 6
Welcome to our class called Stonehenge, we are the eldest of the school and the tallest! As we are the oldest, we have lots of responsibilities, you will find us around school always helping out. Our class teacher is Mrs Orr and our wonderful TA is Miss Coakley. Scroll down to see some pictures of our time this year, we are having so much fun. We hope you enjoy looking at them.
Welcome back to term 4
Our topic for the next two terms is the Vikings. We will be focusing on learning who the Vikings were, where they came from, when they came to Britain and why they came to Britain. We will also be investigating the legacy left by the Vikings. I would love the children to investigate Vikings at home, researching areas that they are interested in. In Science this term, we will be learning about Light. We will be learning about the anatomy of the eye, how we see and how shadows are formed.
World Book Day
We will be celebrating World Book Day in style this week by making our own wooden spoons and cakes inspired by our favourite books. In addition, we are also trying out a "book tasting" event during the day, where the children will visit our book cafe and explore a variety of book genres, thinking about the types of books that they might enjoy reading. Here are some ideas from last year.
Knowledge Organisers 2019/2020
The Year 6 children are focusing on their SAT tests that will take place in May 2020. We are working hard at school to provide them with opportunities to experience the types of questions that they may be asked. At home, it would be very helpful to begin to spend time practicing some of the questions using some of the revision guides that parents can either buy themselves or order from us. An order form has recently been sent home. If you have any questions about the SAT tests, don't hesitate to speak to me.
Lavington Cross Country Sport
Stonehenge were invited to Lavington School for cross country tournament. They all participated with a great attitude, and showed what it truly means to be supportive. A big well done to all.
We were thrilled to end term 3 by participating in the Around the World Dance Show at Dauntsey's. The children had an amazing time rehearsing and performing our Diwali dance in front of pupils and parents from other local schools. They did really well and made the staff feel so proud. Can't wait till next year!
