Anne Frank

Today we started our new English topic: Anne Frank and her diary.


The children showed a real intrigue in the topic, especially when we looked on a website to learn more about the Annex which the Frank family hid in.


Here is a link to the website, in case the children would like to look into this any more:

Day 1

We arrived safely this afternoon and enjoyed finding our rooms and unpacking. Our first activities were Climbing Wall for one group and Archery for the other. The children were excellent and listened beautifully to the instructors. We then had some free time to play and explore before a delicious evening meal of Chicken Korma or Meat balls. We finished the day with a walk to a nearby assault course and a bed time story. Children are now all tucked up and I'm sure we won't see or hear them again before the morning!


Enjoy the rest of your peaceful week back at home!

Day 5


On our way home! It's been a great week at Rock UK. 

The famous, or maybe infamous, King Swing!

Start of a new (academic) year!


I am so excited to start a new year at Trowell C of E and I can't wait to get started with some exciting topics and lessons. I hope that everyone has enjoyed the Summer Holidays and has had a well earned break so you are all ready to hit the ground running in year 6!


I wanted to write to you to give you some extra information about the way year 6 will work and also to let you know what we will be covering in school this term.

Our curriculum this term will focus around WW2. We will be learning about the history of the war, the impact this war had on the people of Europe and how the war was “fought” at home. This will be a very cross curricular unit which will spread over Literacy, Science, D.T and Art.
