Fairlawne Recent Learning

January 2024


In English this term, we are reading The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan.  The children are really enjoying this story so far and have completed lots of exciting tasks including drama to help inform a play script and writing emails to persuade Shaun’s friend for help.




In Maths, we continue to practice our arithmetic skills every day in Maths Gym and the Year 6’s are helping each other understand the method for Long Division when they need it.

We are continuing to use Showbie (our online platform) to help us complete our work every day with our activities shown on there as well as other resources that might help us with our understanding.

We have begun our new theme for Terms 3 and 4: Sow, Grow and Farm.  We have discussed the strands of Geography that can be studied and understand that this theme is more of a Science based Geography (physical) rather than an Arts based Geography (human).  We have looked at food chains, life cycles and how they relate to out rural environments as well as how pollination works.  We particularly enjoyed dissecting roses to identify the different parts.


November 23

On Tuesday 7th November, Fairlawne visited the Tower of London to further their learning on The Tudors and Crime and Punishment at this time.

The children had a brilliant time and gained so much knowledge and context for what they had already studied including armories, Heny VIII and his wives, as well as seeing the Crown Jewels.

We were also incredibly lucky to be present for a 41 gun salute on Tower Embankment outside where the cannons were fired to mark the opening of Parliament by King Charles III.


Well done to Year 6 on their Sponsored Silence!
