16.11.18- Firefighter visit


This afternoon we had a visit from 4 firefighters. They came to talk to both classes about cycling safety and why it is important to wear helmets whenever you are on your bike. We were also lucky enough to have a 'tour' around the fire engine and learn about what equipment is carried on the vehicle. 


During the week we also designed cycle safety posters and the firefighters decided on two winners who were then lucky enough to win a helmet each!



Balanced arguments- 23.10.18

During our English work we wrote balanced arguments based upon the evacuation process during WW2. We researched how effective evacuation was and structured our arguments to discuss whether evacuation was a worthy process. Please read and enjoy our work!


WW2 book list- 02.10.18


Searching for books on amazon can be a dangerous (and expensive) activity. We have had a look at some of the recommended WW2 books that we think the children might like to read to supplement their learning and explore further what life was like during the war. 


Underneath are a few books we would recommend if you are struggling to find a good book.


  • Goodnight Mr Tom
  • The boy in the striped PJs
  • Anne Frank’s diary
  • When Hitler stole pink rabbit
  • Friend or Foe
  • Waiting for Anya
  • The war that saved my life
  • War Horse


Let us know any other books suggestions you would like to see on the list!


Visit from Mr Clarke and Shavington pupils- 20th September 2018


This morning we had a visit from Mr Clarke and some ex-Berkeley pupils who came to discuss with our current year 6 children about life at Shavington Academy. Children had the chance to ask a range of questions about the school and the curriculum, but most importantly what the food is like in the canteen! 


We would like to remind you to make sure that submission of choices for secondary is done on time to avoid disappointment. Many of the schools will offer the chance to look around and we encourage you to take the opportunity to do so to ensure you choose the best school for your child.
