Welcome to the Study Zone!
 
The Study Zone is home to Year 5 and Year 6.  We know how important it is to be engaged with our learning, challenging our thinking and questioning our ideas.  We understand that discussion is an important aspect of our learning, helping us to see different perspectives, different methods of solving problems and also helping us to be open to exploring different ideas.
 
We like to work in a variety of ways: peer learning to share our understanding; talking buddies to think things through;  working in groups or individually to achieve our work.  We strive to be independent learners and know it is okay to get 'stuck', as we learn from our mistakes.  We mostly work at our tables but sometimes work together on the carpet in groups with the teacher. Some of us choose to work on the carpet during independent tasks as we find this more comfortable and so can focus more easily.

This term’s Guided reading book is The Nowhere Emporium by Ross Mckenzie.

Orphaned and growing up in a children's home, Daniel is constantly picked on by Spud Harper and his gang of bullies. However, his life changes forever when he stumbles upon The Nowhere Emporium, which has mysteriously arrived in Glasgow.

Its owner and creator, Lucien Silver, quickly spots something special about Daniel. He invites him to come and work at the Emporium.  It doesn't take long for Silver to realise the true extent of Daniel's talent - and so begins an exciting adventure to save the Emporium from his lifelong arch-nemesis, Vindictus Sharpe.
