One Childhood, One Chance

Weekly News 8th March 2024


This week the children have been learning how to write logbook entries for a ship’s log. They have used emotive language, a range of tenses and explored informal tone. Next week, we will be creating our final Ship’s Log, adding artwork and maps. We will also begin to look at characterisation. We also thoroughly enjoyed our Book Day activities.



The children have this week been using the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, to solve problems. Next week we will be learning how to use algebra and the order of operations in a calculation using BIDMAS: brackets, indices, division, multiplication, addition and subtraction.


This week the children have studied a range of sources to learn about rationing, evacuation and the impact of the atomic bomb on World War Two. Next week we will be learning about the role of women in the war and the impact of war on society. We will also be visiting the Ramsgate Tunnels. See below for further information. We will also be celebrating British Science Week on Monday.

Home Learning:

Task: To research the role of women during WWII. This should be presented in any way you wish.

Please note this is for a lesson on Tuesday 12th March.

Important information and dates:

Ramsgate Tunnels School Trip  – Wednesday 13th March

The children will visit the Ramsgate Tunnels. The cost for this trip is £3. A permission form has been sent to all Year 6 families.  Payment is available online on MCAS. The children should wear shoes that are comfortable to walk in (trainers are allowed) and will need to wear a coat.

Science Day Poster Competition 

On Monday 11th March, we will be taking part in British Science Week here at Chilton. For British Science week, the theme this year is‘Time’. You are invited to enter a competition to create a poster maybe showing how a certain type of technology has changed over time, or even the advancement of time-telling technology itself. Budding poster makers could also go futuristic, showing us how they think the world might look in years to come. You could perhaps look at nature – lifecycles, lifespans, evolution and hibernation – nature is full of timely topics. Your poster must only be A4 or A3 size. It will be scanned so it must be flat. There will be prizes in school and also our 5 best entries from across the school will be entered to a national competition. Here is what the judges will be looking for: 

Creativity in approach dont be afraid to think outside the box and present your entry in a slightly different way. 

Content– Clear, accurate and informative about a Science topic. 

Effective communication presented and communicated in an engaging way.
