The Year 6 class story will be The Infinite Lives of Maisie Day by Christopher Edge....
It's Maisie's birthday and she can't wait to open her presents. She's hoping for the things she needs to build her own nuclear reactor. But she wakes to an empty house and outside the front door is nothing but a terrifying, all-consuming blackness. Trapped in an ever-shifting reality, Maisie knows that she will have to use the laws of the universe and the love of her family to survive. And even that might not be enough...

WW2 Sensational Starter
7th September 2020
To start off our World War Two History topic we worked with Historic Workshop to share a wealth of knowledge all about WW2. The visitor played the role of the Chief Air Raid Warden of the Nottingham Division, and it was his job to transport the children back to the times of the Second World War! He was able to take the children back to 1933 and immersed them in interactive activities that made them feel as though they were living in war-time Britain (on the home front). The day was full of enriching and highly engaging work and the children learnt a great deal about life in World War Two.
