Welcome to Bannister Class. Mrs Waterman is our class teacher and Mrs Greaves and Mr Harris teach us Science and Computing.
In Bannister Class we work very hard and have a great attitude to our learning. We always aim to 'Be the best we can be' by challenging ourselves and supporting one another.
Our class is named after Roger Bannister: Sir Roger Gilbert Bannister, (born March 23 1929 and died March 3,2018). He was and English neurologist who was the first athlete to run a mile in less than four minutes. Up until he did it in 1954, most people thought the four-minute mark was impossible to break. They thought the human body couldn't physically go that fast.
Bannister's determination and resilience inspire us to always believe that there are no limits to what we can achieve!
We are continuing our wonderful topic of the Mayans during the Autumn Two term.
Please find our Geography Knowledge organiser for Autumn term two.
Welcome back to September 2020!
Please find the curriculum planner and knowledge organiser for Autumn 2020.
Tuesday 17th March:
Please note that all Y6 children will be sent home today with three SAT revision books. The books will consist of a Maths revision book, a reading comprehension book and a 10 minute SPAG book.
The books will act as daily work activities if school has to close or if school doesn't close they will be used as revision books. Children will be informed which pages to do on which days/ weeks. This will ensure that children can still access revision type materials in the event of a school closure ( hopefully this will not happen)
Until we have definite conformation could the revision materials be put in a safe place.

Twinkle, Classroom secrets and by doing a search for past Y6 papers.
