We’re the Falcons!
Welcome to our class
We’re fearless high-flyers, full of life.
We take pride in our work and reach for the stars!

Happy New Year! The Falcons have returned in fine form and we are excited about the term ahead!
We are continuing to read 'Lionboy' by Zizou Corder. Will Charlie find his parents before Rafi Sadler finds him?
We will visit the library on alternate Friday afternoons.
We will be visiting Harrogate Racquets on Mondays for the next six weeks. PE lessons will be on Thursdays, or every third Tuesday.
This morning, following a careful design and planning stage in DT, the Falcons made their felt Christmas decorations. I'm sure you'll agree that they look fantastic; well done to everyone for your hard work and super ideas! Thank you also to Mrs McCombe and Mrs Southworth for coming in to help too.
This week we watched the show, 'The Power of One', which dealt with the theme of anti-bullying. It was very informative and taught us that if we should ever see bullying happen, we should be an 'upstander' rather than a 'bystander' - someone who questions bullying behaviour and makes the victim feel better. James and Joseph were chosen to help out with one of the sketches.
Ruby and Henry were the deserving recipients of this half term's Special Mentions certificates, for their hardworking, positive attitudes, kindness and enthusiasm for learning! Well done to them both - they are inspirations to all!
On Tuesday, we were visited by Brian, who taught us lots of interesting things about Ancient Egypt & the Egyptians.
We learned about the River Nile, the pyramids of Giza, the pharaohs and the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun by the archaeologist, Howard Carter. We reenacted some of the scenes we had talked about, having much fun as we did so!
