Welcome back, we cannot believe it is spring term already. We hope that you had a fantastic holiday and look forward to hearing all about your child’s Christmas.
Attached is an updated timetable for this term. Due to the forthcoming SATs in May, we have increased whole class reading to 2 sessions a week, increased our maths lessons to 5 and SPAG will become weekly instead of phonics. We will carry on with Science this term focusing on light initially and our new topic for this half term is ‘The land down under’.
Children will continue to receive reading books linked to their ability from school. Reading journals will no longer be required but there will be an expectation of completing a reading comprehension every week - these will be given out on a Monday.
Children will receive 10 spellings from their class teacher which are related to their age, these will also be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday.
Children will also receive fortnightly Maths and SPAG homework on a Monday in order to apply skills taught in lessons, this maybe via MyMaths. We appreciate that this might seem a lot for the children however; we want to ensure we are providing the best opportunities to take the time to revise at home.
Revision books will be sent out to those who have paid over the next week, once the last of the books have arrived.
In order to prepare for the SATs in May, some children may complete their learning with either Mrs Thompson or Mrs Powell. We will also have Miss Cooper joining us from Palmers Cross for the first half term and she will be based in class 20 with Miss Fellows.
Miss Aujla will continue her training at Edward the Elder until later in the term.
This is a very important term for the children and we look forward to excellent progress being made. If you have any concerns or worries, please arrange a time to speak to one of us, as you play a vital role in your child’s education.
Our PE sessions are the following:
Class 19 – Monday and Friday
Class 20 – Thursday and Friday
Class 21 – Monday and Thursday
Please be aware that these sessions may be flexible, therefore children need a PE kit (consisting of black shorts, a white top and pumps) in school at all times.

Year 6 have had a fantastic day at Cadbury learning about how Cadbury’s have changed over time. We enjoyed our tour of the factory, tasting chocolate, seeing how chocolate is made and even had a ride on a little chocolate cart. The 4D experience was brilliant - lots of screams on the ‘rollercoaster’! We still had plenty of time for some fun on the park. Finally, a Mayan talk to aid our thematic learning made us ask some fantastic questions.

Year 6 had an amazing final trip visiting Laches Wood. They tested their nerves, stepped out of their comfort zones and faced their fears! A fantastic day had by all, making memories with super team work! Proud teachers!
Year 6 have had a fantastic day for the introduction to Crime and Punishment - Guilty as Charged thematic unit. Lots of detective work to uncover who has stolen the football trophy. We had four suspects: Miss Foster, Mr Green, Mrs Webster and Mr Cosnett.
Children analysed the crime scene, completed chromatography and looked at finger printing. How could you Miss Foster!!
What a wonderful day?

Families are encouraged to register their interest in our open events so they don’t miss out on any of the planned activities. The form takes 2 minutes to fill in and can be found here: CLICK HERE
Principal, Craig Cooling, said: “We’ve come such a long way in the past 12 months despite the pandemic and I am delighted to see that the progress we are making is being recognised. Our open events last year were a huge hit and this year we look forward to building on that success.
“Of course, we are disappointed that we can’t invite families in through the door but safety comes first for everyone. We’ve been meticulous in our planning and communications throughout the pandemic and it’s really important that we provide a safe, enjoyable experience for one of the biggest decisions that a family will make together.
“These open e-vents will give families the opportunity to make the right decision for their child’s education. We are a digitally capable school with a large community on social media, we’ll be engaging with prospective parents and utilising some of the skills that we’ve learned over lockdown to provide some fantastic content for the whole family to enjoy.”
