Notices & Reminders

Fiver Challenge

As you know, the class have been busy making products and thinking of ways to make more money than the original £5 they were given. We are going to have a sale of products on Friday at 2:45 pm. You are welcome to come along and spend some money in the hope of all teams making a profit.

Hope to see you then.

Arts Week - W.B. 24.06.19

As part of Arts Week, I would like to create a piece of whole-class art with the children based around single-use plastics. Could the children please all bring in a piece of plastic on each Tue, Wed and Thu? E.g. a drinks bottle, empty butter tub, fruit punnet... 1 piece per child per day should give the children an insight into how quickly single-use plastics build up.

Many thanks for your support,

Miss Samantha Howes. 



Year 5 are going to be trying out some Y6 SATs papers over the next week or so. This is not something to worry about, it is just to inform their next teacher of what they know already. They will have the opportunity to do this again towards the end of next year as this is just a baseline.

Thanks for your support.

The Fiver Challenge - 10.06.19

Apologies for any confusion caused about this.

Over the next three weeks, pupils in Y5 and Y6 are being given £5 pledges to get business ideas of the ground and make as much profit as possible. 

Ideas for this are as follows:

  • Badges
  • Book Marks
  • Greetings cards
  • Name signs
  • Tote bags
  • Bags and purses
  • Candles
  • Games and puzzles
  • Personalised products
  • Bird boxes
  • Coasters
  • Key rings
  • Mugs
  • Stationery

Please see the parent letter for more information.

Many thanks for your support.

Just a quick note to point out that, as part of our science curriculum, this term we will be covering some topics which could be sensitive to some. You may have children coming home with questions or, alternatively, you might wish to talk to your children yourselves before teaching takes place in school. 

The topics we will cover are listed on our Summer Term curriculum map but I wanted to point out specifically that we plan to cover life-cycles (including the stages of a human from birth to death), gestation periods of animals and comparing these to the length and mass of a human foetus as it grows  and changes experienced in puberty.

If you have any questions - please do ask :). 


Please note - The summer term spelling list was uploaded onto the 'homework' section of this page last week. (I'll print it tomorrow for any children who would like a paper copy). I have also uploaded Mathletics tasks now too - I waited a short while to allow some children time to catch-up. I have allocated 9 activities to be completed by June 4th when we return to school after the half term break. 


Many thanks for your support,

Miss Samantha Howes.  



Welcome back!

We hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday and are ready to get going!
