Welcome to the Spring Term!
Our topic this term is 'Treasures of Ancient Egypt' where the children will focus on the life and death of the Pharaohs. We will be aiming to bring this into as many subjects as possible, for example printing onto sheets of papyrus in art and learning Egyptian Dances.
We are lucky enough to have an Egyptologist visiting us on February 5th. We will be sending out a letter shortly for 'dressing up' ideas and further information.
Our studies will culminate in an online digital gallery of our Egyptian findings which you will be able to view in April.
In the meantime please keep up to date with us via Twitter - @Class11DJS
Can I write an autobiography of my life?
Over the next 3 weeks, your homework is to write an autobiography of your life.
To be handed in by Friday 6th July
You (yes, you!) are going to write the story of your life so far. You are going to think about all the things that have happened to you in your life, people you have met, people you have loved, people who have made your life exciting…all sorts of things. You will be able to include pictures, photographs, mementoes (ticket stubs for example) and anything that means something to you (even a poem written when you were in infant school perhaps!)
I suggest that you divide your autobiography up into 4 sections – chapters if you like!
Your early life:
where/when you were born
early memories (1st broken bone, 1st best friend etc)
funny stories about being young
sad stories (…best friend moving to London…)
Coming to Dinglewell Junior School:
thoughts and feelings about coming here
things connected with school (clubs, school trips…)
Ambitions and Hopes for the Future
Where you’re going to Secondary School
What you hope to be when you’re older
People who have influenced your life
Year 6 enjoying their Christmas party!
Fo those parents who missed our presentation for this Year's Y6 Residential visit, I have tried to upload the presentation but am unable to do so.
Please fill free to come in or request a copy if you have any queries.
It has been lovely to see some of our Year 6s join us for our production rehearsals on a Tuesday after school in the hall.
However it would be lovely to see even more of you as this will be the last chance you can perform in a whole school production at Dinglewell.
Please come along and join us. All you need is a signature in your homework diary to say that you can come along.
On Friday, in Class 10, we became scientists and did an investigation to find out if light travels in a straight line. Take a look at what we did. What do you think the results showed?
In Year 6, Michael Morpurgo is our chosen author this term. If you'd like to share a favourite passage, or anything about the author and his books, bring them in for class assembly which we have each Wednesday.
During our first Computing lesson this term, Year 6 have been learning about Internet safety. Here's a little something to remind you of the rules to follow when online- stay safe!
Our topic during the autumn term is 'Blitz and Blighty'. We will be learning about what part Britain, and other countries', played in World War 2. We will focus on the impact the war had on men, women and children's lives in Britain and what life was like for people during the 1940's and 50's. Mrs. Powis, Mrs. Deichen, Mr. Jones and Mrs. Scott look forward to exploring this topic with the Year 6 children.
Just to let you know, we are having trouble uploading photos due to a very slow wifi connection. We will keep trying but if we're unsuccessful they will all be added for you to see when we arrive back. Even without the pictures to show you, rest assured the children are all having a fantastic time!

End of SATs - Doughnut Time!
As a thank you for all their hard work this week, the Year 6s enjoyed eating very jammy doughnuts (and biscuits) in the sunshine on Friday afternoon. They have all been amazing this week. Well done all of you - we are very proud of you all!
Your teacher will very soon be filling this page with exciting class news, pictures of things we’ve done and more.
