Welcome to our class page! My name is Miss Berrington and I  teach Tulip class. My major passions in life are the RAMS as well as teaching. I am a huge lover of music and vinyl, so any opportunity to use this to inspire learning will be used in our classroom. 


If you wish to contact me, please do so via class dojo rather than email, as I check this on a more regular basis. I will sign your children's planners every Friday so feel free to leave a note if you need to. 




We have reached our final half term folks! We are going to be super busy...

We will be continuing with our topic Does everything have the capacity to change? We will be doing lots of creative writing around the topic, including a WAT writing competition, and a delicious piece about chocolate cake! In maths we will be continuing to apply skills through solving problems and consolidating knowledge and skills ready for year 7.

In addition, we will be spending time rehearsing for our end of year production Shakespeare Rocks!









PE this term will be on Wednesday and Friday afternoons.  Don’t forget your kit!

Weekly Update...


It has been our final full week in school, and what a week it has been. The children put on an outstanding show for their year 6 production and we couldn't be prouder. Thank you so much for your support- we really appreciate it. Roll on residential!




Frank who?





Here's a sneaky peek at what we've been up to...
The Snow Queen came to see us on Friday...Oh no she didn't!...Oh yes she did!...

We have been busy bridge building!  Take a look at our amazing constructions...
On Friday 9th November we visited Trent College to meet the author Robin Stevens who writes the 'Murder Most Unladylike' series.  The children were fascinated to hear all about how she became a writer and even got the opportunity to buy some signed copies of her books!  If any parents are looking for some exciting texts for Christmas or birthdays, Tulips highly recommend these books.
