A Great Start to Year 5/6 ~ Autumn Newsletter Update!

It has been a busy but hugely productive start to the year for children in Year 5 and 6, working hard to develop their skills in English and Maths as well as in a whole range of other curriculum subjects.

Children have completed excellent work this half-term on our story “Wolf Brother” in English, and we know that several children have already purchased the second installment of the series… if you would like to buy this (possible Christmas present!) click the link here:

In Maths, pupils have been working on number, place value and improving their skills in their work on shape, area and perimeter too. In Science, children have been working on “Sound”, making string telephones and including a fantastic trip to Winchester Science Museum too.

In Art, children have been working on some fantastic 3D artwork, based on the work of Dale Chihuly’s glass sculptures.

In P.E, children in Year 5 have been improving their swimming skills, whilst Year 6 have been working on developing their cricket skills – including a very successful tournament with our Federated School!

Next half-term, children will be working on a new text in English, which will be “Boy in the Tower” an exciting apocalyptic tale! In Maths, we will be tackling fractions and measures, including some work on money too. In DT, we will be working on Bridge-Building, using our new learning about New York to assist with this, which will be our work in Georgraphy this half-term.

Thank you for all your hard work this half-term, keep up your efforts next half-term too.Image result for the boy in the tower

Newsletter ~ Year 5 Summer 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

This is our last blog of the school year and it is a celebration of all the wonderful things that your children have achieved with us.

Well done to the Year 6 children who showed great resilience and determination during the recent SATs and were rewarded with fantastic results. They were the best results of the last 3 years! From this great starting point, they will continue to make good progress in their secondary schools. We wish them success in all of their future endeavours.

The end of the year is always a time to say goodbye, not only to children who are leaving us but also to members of staff who are moving on to new challenges. This year, we are saying goodbye to Mr Burt, Mrs Webber, Mrs Audus and Mrs Righini-Nisbet. They have all played a key role in your children’s lives and we wish them well.

We will all be saying a sad goodbye to Mr Charman as he retires but thank him for all of the hard work he has done to keep the school running since he joined us in 2001.

We also wish Mrs Golding good luck as she awaits the arrival of her new baby and welcome Mrs Williams and Miss Birks back after their maternity leave.

September promises to be a new start for us all with new challenges and success waiting for us.

Have a happy and safe holiday, I look forward to seeing everyone in September,
