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 will put a reading task, a Talk for Writing task, your weekly spellings, topic tasks and lots of Maths work on this page each week. You'll have plenty to keep you busy and remember to just try your best and do what you can.
I want to say a huge thank you to all of you for being so positive about our current situation and for the huge effort you have put into keeping the learning going. I have really enjoyed seeing all your amazing learning. Remember to look at our class learning tab to see your learning and that of your friends.
I will keep looking at Class Dojo to see your lovely messages and photos. Keep sending them to me, they really make me smile! It has been so lovely spending time with the pupils who are now at school and we have been developing our writing, Maths and art and DT skills. We also love a game of rounders!
Stay safe everyone.
Message for Year 6
Hope you are all well. I have a little task for you to do at home. I would like you to think about your time at St Barnabas and jot down some of your memories. Think about some of the things you have experienced, the friends you have made and the knowledge you have developed. Put your ideas/memories together in a poem that you are happy to share with your friends.
Hope you enjoy creating your poems.
Summer Reading Fun Challenge
Over the summer holidays, the library always run the reading challenge which many of our children enjoy participating in. Even though the library isn't running the challenge this year, it would still be wonderful if your child could continue their reading for fun over the summer break. Aim to read some different types of books over the next few weeks and I would love to hear about them when we return in September. I would love your child to write a book review of one of the books they have read and we can share their thoughts in September. Feel free to use the book review format below or create one of your own.

99 Club Challenge
This week I would like you all to challenge yourself to completing one of the sheets from 99 club. Stonehenge children, you know which club you are on so just start where you left off. You need to time yourselves and remember that you only have 5 minutes to complete each club challenge! Grown ups, why don't you have a go too! It's brilliant and a great way for the children to learn and remember their times tables. You'll find all the 99 club information in the parent information section of our school website. Good luck everyone and let me know how you get on by emailing me or sending me a message on dojo.
Online PE Tasks - See how many of these tasks you can get through!
Message for Year 6
Hi all, as well as focusing on the home learning that I have set you this week, why don't you start to have a look at some of the BBC Bitesize learning for KS3. It just gives you some great ideas of some of the learning that you might do when you start at your secondary schools.
Also, Stonehenge keep remembering to have a go at 99 Club, TT Rockstars and Sumdog. Can you beat your last result?

Previous Learning Tasks
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!
