Our topic this half term is Beside The Seaside. We will be basing our learning around the titanic and finding out all about this infamous ship.

Homework in Year 6 is not given on a particular day. Instead the children are given a homework diary and should record their homework in this when it is given. This is in preparation for high school.
Each week Year 6 children will be given spellings, reading comprehension, maths and a writing or topic based homework.
Please ensure your child is bringing their homework diary and reading books into school every day. Please check their homework diary regularly and sign this every week.
Coppull Parish is 200!
We have been celebrating 200 years of Coppull Parish this week and what a busy week it has been.
We started off the week with a local history expert Geoff Bellis. He told us all about Coppull, going back to before William the Conquerer! Did you know, the school car park was once a pond? He brought with him an impressive collection of photographs of Coppull some of them from the early 1900s. We were able to identify some of our ancestors in the photos!
On Wednesday, we celebrated with the whole school by dressing up in outfits throughout the ages and enjoying our party day. We ate lunch on the playground with balloons. In the afternoon, we completed lots of fun activities on the playground with our reception buddies. We also met past teachers, headteachers and members of the parish as they were invited too!
We have explored the past 200 years and events which have occured in this time and how long 200 years really is. Did you know, 200 years is 2400 months, 10 400 weeks and 73,000 days!
The Bulb Project
The bulb project began again with planting day 20th October '16.
See the slide show below.
This year Y5 and Y6 are carrying out the project in their dinner times.
The bulb project involves the children being real scientists, measuring and recording the weather on a daily basis at school, and measuring and recording flowering dates and heights later in the year.
Records are sent to The National Museum Wales from all around the country-Scotland and Wales included. Some of the organisations involved are The Edina Trust, SCAN and The Welsh Government. The results are used for studying climate change.
