‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Spring Term A

Week Three


Well the Year 5 children have finished their swimming lessons and the improvement has been a joy to see. A shout out to all parents and carers for getting kit dried and ready for the next day - thank you!!!! The children have been a credit to you and many of them have mastered this vital life skill; the rest are well on their way so keep swimming!


The children have also been out with Mrs. McHatton on Tuesday.


On Thursday the children had a chance to meet the Dutch children who are working with WDPS on the Turing Scheme and Year 5 told them all about WDPS. The other school asked lots of questions and their English was much better than our Dutch. Over the coming weeks the all of Year 5 will be working with the children developing their communication skills so watch this space!


We finished off the week with Mr. Mather with ABC followed by Feel Good Friday Rocksteady Music.


I think the children will sleep well this weekend.


Kind regards

Week Two


What an exciting week as the Year 5s have been swimming every afternoon. We are certainly getting our monies worth as the children are in the pool for one and a half hours. To see the progression they are making is awesome. Hopefully next week will be easier as the children's fitness will improve and their swimming stamina too.


On Tuesday we had The Happy Puzzle Company and the children really enjoyed working in teams to solve a plethora of puzzles.


We finished off the week with more swimming and Mr. Mathers with ABC.


Have a relaxing weekend - the children wiil certainly need after all their efforts in the pool.

Week One


Happy New Year to you at the start of 2022!


We have had a jam-packed week so here goes.


In Maths, the children have been building on the work they did last term in multiplication and they have now progressed onto long multiplication. Homework this week is some multiplication calculations. Encourage the children to jot down the table they are timesing by before they begin.


The Maya is our new History focus and in English our class text is ‘The Beginners Guide to Life on Earth’ by Gill Arbuthnot.


Today, the children wowed us all when taking photographs from different perspectives and exploring different ways to see the world.


Finally, Year 5 had their first week of ABC with Mr. Mather,  looking at why we have rules and laws.


Have a lovely weekend.
