Welcome to Rinsey Class

 Our teacher is Mrs Ockwell who is supported by Mrs Tullett.

Welcome to our new academic year and we are kicking off with the question:

War, what is it good for? In the course of our studies, we will look at warring societies such as the Aztecs, and wars between countries such as WW2.

We will be reading lots of different texts, stories and non- fiction books, writing many ideas and styles of texts like myths, factual writing and stories, debating many ideas around our central question.

Our classroom will be transformed so we can act out, imagine, explain and explore how war has been part of history across the world.

Every week we enjoy a French language lesson from a specialist teacher who pops across from CSIA. Some of our pupils also go to workshops on maths, in sports and join in with other local opportunities such as ‘lifeskills’, music workshops and dance activities. Everyone is encouraged to make the most of new opportunities.

Mrs Ockwell can drive the minibus, so our outdoor learning happens at least once a month.

Rinsey class is the base for homework club which is free and happens for all year groups every Thursday after school. Mrs Ockwell takes the club and we all have a drink and a biscuit.

This class is the focus for learning before the next big step to senior school. We pride ourselves in being rounded learners, able to try our hardest and improve in our learning every day.

Roald Dahl Day
A poem from our Roald Dahl Day
In Mr Twit's beard I found:
Half a rotten jellied eel
Manky old orange peel
Flakey, skabby, skin and
Somethink lurking in the dirty depths of this mans beard
and mouldy chocolate smeared across his spikey face
food was just all over the place.

During Engineering Week we looked at pendulums and humanitarian aid projects
These photos are about a science investigation.  We looked at the theory of the pendulums and then tested it out for ourselves.  Using a variety of resources, from string and science clamps, to on line pendulums, we found out that increasing or decreasing the mass of the pendulums bob does not increase or decrease the time taken for the pendulum to make one swim.  Amazing Science!

If there were no volcanoes


If there were no volcanoes

The earth’s tears would go cold

There would be no volcanic islands to explore

No extraordinary discoveries

Or deaths of the sorts of ash and lave

And the earth’s core would be hotter than it is

It sure would put my heart out.
