Today, in Challenger, we continued to learn about the Blitz and analysed Hitler’s Blitzkrieg tactic. Could you write a non-chronological report about the Blitz? Could you practise writing a newspaper report in advance of us writing one in class?

Tomorrow, in maths, we will continue to learn about negative numbers and then we will move on to column addition and subtraction. Please do use the websites/other resources that you have at home to get a head start with these areas before we learn them further in class.

Dear Challenger,

It was great to see so many of you at Parents’ Meetings this week, and it’s great to hear that all of you are keen to do extra learning at home to help improve your progress. Please see some great websites below that will provide you with materials across the key subjects: English Grammar, Spelling, Maths and Reading.

  1. Oak Academy This website is great for all subjects. Be sure to click on the necessary subject links to access the materials.
  2. BBC Bitesize : BBC is another great resource to learn in all of the key subjects.
  3. Khan Academy on YouTube: Khan Academy is a great YouTube channel to help teach you the different concepts that we learn in maths. You will just need to type the area of maths into YouTube alongside Khan Academy, and find the video e.g. rounding Khan Academy.

Lastly, I am pleased to share that Invicta Academy are offering FREE online classes over the October Half Term. Please click on the link below to book your place if you wish to attend (remember, we are Upper Key Stage 2).

Happy holidays,

Miss Maitland

What a day we have had! Full of loads of different activities like raft building, zipwire, passport to the world, abseiling,fencing and a lovely disco to end a great day full of different adventures! Not to mention a GREAT breakfast, lunch and dinner 🤤

Now, time for bed so we are fully rested for our last adventures of PGL tomorrow!  G 


Year 6 have had an amazing first day at PGL, enjoying the Zipwire, Giant Swing & Survivor activities. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner 😋, and ended the day with a competitive game of Capture the Flag. Time for bed now as we have a very early start tomorrow!

Hi Year 6,

Here are the songs that you will sing in your play. There is a copy with vocals (people singing) and without vocals. Listen and sing along to the version with vocals first. Once you are confident, practise using the version without vocals.

Have a lovely weekend!
