Miss M Ferris
Zoom Information for Falcons:
Every Thursday at 2pm
Meeting invites will be sent to parents each week
Welcome to the class page of Falcon Class 2019-20.
Our teacher is Miss Ferris and our LSA is Miss Reynolds.
Attached at the bottom of this page are the slides from our Parent Meeting on Wednesday 25th September.
We hope you find these useful!
You are now in the final week of a whole term learning from home - YOU'RE AMAZING!
Thank you to those of you who continue to join our class Zooms - they are a great way for us all to keep in touch.
As we know, this week would have been Camp... We have tried to adapt your timetable to make it as fun as possible to keep your spirits high.
I particularly like the suggestion of camping in the garden... if I had a garden I might consider it but I'm not sure camping in the communal grounds would go down too well!!
Anyway... I thought this may make you smile...
Today is the day that SATs would have started,
The classroom set up and the tables parted,
The rules on the board, the display walls all covered,
Your workbooks away, out of sight in the cupboard,
Instead you are home, you’re doing your bit,
Protecting your families from getting sick,
It’s important right now, we’re in lockdown you see,
Being a part of world history,
You’ve all worked so hard, you should be so proud,
You’ve practised your SPAG and times tables out loud,
You’ve learnt algebra to the Nth degree,
And now the tests, they will no longer be,
Some may be sad that they can’t take the tests,
“Hip hip hooray,” I’ve no doubt said the rest,
Whilst the tests are on hold and you stay home this term,
Remember that tests can’t measure everything you learn,
And I don’t need SATs results to tell me,
How hard you have worked, it’s easy to see,
'Lockdown' Year 6, let me shout it out loud,
You’ve made all your teachers so very proud,
So please continue to learn, fill that brain up full,
And remember, we think you’re all wonderful! 💕
We are now in Week 4 of Term 5 - don't these weeks fly?!
Thank you again for sharing insights into your home learning with me - I really enjoy seeing what you are busy doing over the course of the week.
Hopefully see you on Zoom this Thursday at 2pm (invites to follow).
I am in school all of this week so may take a little longer to respond to your emails - I will be responding as best I can between the hours of 10:00 - 11:30 and 1:30 - 3:00
Have a super week and keep smiling!
It was so lovely to see lots of you on Zoom on Thursday - it really brightened my day. Thank you so much to all of your parents for helping to make this happen.
It's more important than ever right now to be kind to yourself and others so I've included a kindness calendar in this week's Home Learning links - how many acts of kindness can you record for the month of May?
It certainly is a strange time at the moment and doesn't always feel easy to adapt to, so I just wanted to take the time to remind you how proud I am of all of you.
Keep working hard and keep smiling!
I hope you have been enjoying the sunshine this week. It has been lovely to hear from so many of you by email - thank you. If you haven't set up your email yet, try and make this your mission for this week! I have sent information about an exciting Zoom meeting to all of your parents. I hope lots of you can make it.
Keep working hard and keep smiling!
Well done to those of you who have managed to set up your email addresses and have made contact with me to say hello! Please make sure you have set these up ready for the new term - they will be used regularly to make contact and to keep you updated with any news. If you are having trouble setting these up, please ask your parents to contact me.
Mr Squiffles (my Mum's house rabbit) and I just wanted to wish you all a very Happy Easter! I hope you have enjoyed lots of chocolate and family time together.
Take care, Miss Ferris
Well done to everyone who has played TT Rock Stars this week!

The winner is ...
Congratulations Falcons! from Miss Dace
On Thursday 27th February, we were lucky enough to take part in a bread workshop run by Chartwells (the company who provide our school dinners). This was our launch for our new project - 'What if changes couldn't be reversed?' - which is Science focused. We are looking forward to lots of practical experiments!
During our trip to Shepton Mallet Prison, the Year 6 crew got an insight into what life would have been like as a Victorian prisoner. Shepton Mallet is Britain's oldest working prison which opened its doors in 1610. We learnt that it is a Category C prison and that it is also famous for the holding of the Kray brothers! We had a wonderful day exploring the site.
Upon arriving at school this morning, the Year 6 Crew discovered an exciting delivery of hoodies on their desks. They were worn with pride all day and I'm sure they will continue to be enjoyed throughout the academic year - a very colourful Friday!
On Tuesday 7th January, the Year 6 Crew embarked on their new project, “When would have been the worst time to be a criminal?” by holding a gripping debate; hearing testimony from varying witnesses hypothesising about the Wolf’s involvement in Grandma’s decease in the fictional tale of Little Red Riding Hood. This was a very engaging way to kick start our chronological journey as historians, looking at similarities and differences between the criminal justice systems of various eras and the British Justice System today. Everybody played a meaningful role and demonstrated excellent acting skills throughout!
