Some of what we have been doing during the first half of term
Using the new equipment and having fun outside (plus a bit of work)
2nd October 2020
The children are continuing to work hard and get used to the new way of doing things, even though it can be hard not mixing with friends. We have finished studying Kensuke's Kingdom and over the next three weeks we will be looking at, then writing, newspaper reports.
If your child is unwell then we do not expect them to work - we can help them catch up when they return. If they are having to isolate we can provide work for them to do at home. You will be hearing more about our remote education plan over the following weeks though your children may already have mentioned some of the online resources that we are already making available to them (links below).
11th September 2020
This week we are back to covering all our subjects and the children continue to impress with their enthusiasm and determination. This is some of what we have been up to.....
It has been wonderful to see all the children back in school. They have all settled in very well and are already proving to be curious learners. We are studying Kensuke’s Kingdom in English. We will also be studying France (geography), French artists (art), Sikhism (RE), Roman numerals & place value (maths) and computing.
PE will be on Wednesdays - children should come to school in their PE kit. They can also either wear the school tracksuit or other plain tracksuit / jogging bottoms.
- always have a book you would like to read in school and read every day at home.
- to have your super 6 stationary (blue writing pen, pencil, ruler, eraser, sharpener, glue stick) every day in a small pencil case.

Homework is usually set on a Friday and is expected in for marking by the following Friday at the latest. House points are awarded for submitting homework before the deadline and they are also awarded for excellent effort/attainment. If homework is late, then pupils will complete it at breaktime/lunchtime.
In addition, children can always look at the web links below and practice their literacy, grammar and maths skills.
