‘A Stepping Stone into the Future’

Summer Term A

Week 4

Congratulations to our Year 6 children for their courage, resilience and hard work during their SATs this week, we could not be more proud of them all. They celebrated the final test with a very wet water fight! 
Our Year 5 children have worked their socks off for Mrs. McHatton in the school garden, weeding, planting and laying bark clippings. Well done everyone- what a week! 

Week 3


On Thursday we celebrated the upcoming King's Coronation by making crowns and playing games on the school field; we also wore red, white and blue to school instead of our usual uniform.  We were lucky enough to have a visit from the ice-cream van - we all enjoyed either an ice-cream or a lolly.  At the end of the day we showed off our spectacular creations in a whole school assembly, where we also sang the National Anthem.

Week 2


This week our year 5 pupils were invited to help Melissa from British Cycling with some research that she was carrying out. The questions that the children answered will help British Cycling's creative team build a marketing concept for the youth development award that they are developing.


We are also loving our new class text, ‘Clockwork’ by Philip Pullman. You can read some of writing below. 

Week 1


Whilst the year 6 pupils were busy doing revision for their upcoming SATs, the year 5 children had the opportunity on Wednesday to enjoy the spring sunshine.  They worked hard in the allotments, filling one of the new planters with earth and tidying the area ready for deliveries of bark chippings and soil.  It was great to see the children working together as a team, particularly when they were moving one of the new planters into position, and living out the core values of cooperation and resilience.


On Thursday afternoon the whole  class enjoyed carrying out a practical science experiment to work out if a range of different substances (oil, pepper, sugar, food colouring, flour and wax shavings) were soluble or insoluble in water. This involved keeping control variables, such as the volume of water or the amount of the substance, the same whilst varying the independent variable (the substance).
