We believe in ourselves and go for it!

We have has a wonderful first week back getting to know each other. We have taken on Year 6 responsibilities and are Year 6 buddies to help out the Year 3 children. We are looking forward to our trip to East Barnby this half term too.
We are reading 'Letters from the Lighthouse' by Emma Carroll as our first class story to share together. The book is about WW2 which is our theme for the term, we have already learned so much about what it was like to live during WW2 and can't wait to find out more!
As at the start of every year, children have been voted by their peers to represent Cheetahs at our school's pupil Voice Groups. We are lucky to have such a variety of groups for children to join and that we can all work together to make our school an even better place.
Well done and thank you to all the children in Cheetahs Class who put themselves forward for a pupil voice group. The results are as followed...
Our first English topic is the picture book 'Rose Blanche', written by Ian McEwan and illustrated by Roberto Innocenti. The book follows the story of a girl, Rose, during WW2 in Germany. So far, we have analysed the first two pages, looked at what we know, what we think we know and what we want to find out. We have also role-played the scene on the first page to help us empathise with the characters (Rose and her Mum). Here are freeze frames from the activity:
