‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Autumn Term A

Week 2


It’s been another busy week! We’ve been looking at The Black Dog in English which is all about conquering  your fear. In maths we have been looking at place value and rounding. The children have also enjoyed bushcraft, music and P.E. this week. All the children have all settled beautifully into the new school routine of regularly washing their hands and keeping in their bubble. Have a great weekend. 

Week 1

Welcome Back!


We were really pleased to welcome the children back into school this week. It was so lovely to see their familiar, smiling faces and everyone keen to be back at school. We've been easing the children back in to learning this week with lots of times table, remembering methods in maths, re-strengthening our hands with writing and also enjoying some art. The children have settled back in really well and we've been very impressed with their attitude and determination towards their own learning.


P.E. will be every Monday so we'd like the children to arrive at school wearing their PE kits on Monday morning. With SAT's approaching at the end of this academic year, we really need to get the children reading as much as possible and practicing times tables, as this will help them hugely. Reading books and diaries have been sent home and need to be brought into class every day as adults will be listening to them read at various intervals. Reading books will be changed every Friday. Please try to encourage your child to read at least 3 times a week. Children still have access to Times Table Rockstars and again we would like you to encourage your child to practice their times tables as often as possible but at least three times a week. This doesn't need to be on TTRockstars, any method will do.


Thank you for your support.


Bushcraft - Loose Parts and Den Building

Year 6 have been in our Bushcraft Area working on their mental wellbeing and many life skills.  They have been making pictures about things that mean a lot to them, using natural loose parts.  Also, building dens and making their own games and play.
