With Mr Comber, Mrs Feuillatre and Mrs Jeavons


Welcome to Bath Class. We are looking forward to sharing our progress, and the learning taking place in our class, with you this year.


We have P.E. and Games on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday each week. and it is really important that your child is properly equipped for these lessons with T-shirt, shorts, trainers and as the weather gets colder, track suit bottoms.


Reading record books are sent home daily. It is important that every child reads on a daily basis and has their book signed. This book should be brought to school every day please

John Williams brings stories to life through music

This term the children have been exploring how the great composer John Williams brings stories to life through his incredible music. We have studied Harry Potter music as well as Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park.


Next week we will be exploring his life further in preperation for writing a biography about this talented musician. 

Wonderful Writing


The children have been extending their use of language devices to describe the action taking place in a story this week. We based our writing on an image of death eaters escaping Azkaban prison. 


Silent Soul Suckers Surround Us!

This week the children have used their exploration of our modeled text to write a news paper report of their own based on the demonic dementors that appear for the first time in this book as Harry is travelling to Hagwarts!


Pop back at the end of the week to see our wonderful results!

Knight Bus Nonsense!

This week the children have re-imagined the Knight bus chapter of The Prisoner of Azkaban as a newspaper report.  We have used a model text to identify tools that we can use to write an effective newspaper report and used the images and music of the scene from the film to add compelling detail. 
Can you guess the author we are looking at this term?

Term1's Focus

Week 7


In science this week we have been debating the issue of smoking in the UK.  We discussed the changes in law and advertising and why these changes came about.  We also discussed the impact smoking has on our overall health. We used this timeline to inform our discussion and pose questions such as 'Why does the government still allow people to smoke?'


Week 6


Bath class have been working hard to innovate a set of instructions based on How to catch a Dragon. We are so proud to their results!



Wonderful Writing!

We have been enjoying learning more about our topic thought paired reading sessions.

We have been using drama to learn the structure of a set of instructions based on our key text.

Week 4


This week in ICT we created a stop motion animation linked to our literacy.

Week 3

We have been investigating squared numbers in maths this week

Why do we call them squared numbers?

Can you find the first palindromic number that is also a squared number?

Our visit to Clayspace creating clay dragons

Literacy-Week 2


We have spent time analysing a description of the Isle of Berk.  We identified effective language and discussed why the author had chosen certain punctuation. We then applied this to our own writing. 



Science Week 2


We have been learning about the circulatory system.  We set out our classroom to represent the human body and explained the journey red blood cells take as the 'use and refuel' oxygen. 



Roald Dahl Day

A brief history of plural word...s - John McWhorter

View full lesson here: All it takes is a simple S to make most English words plural. But it hasn't always worked that way (and there are, of course, exceptions). John McWhorter looks back to the good old days when English was newly split from German -- and books, names and eggs were beek, namen and eggru!
