Writing for a Purpose – Reading for Pleasure!

Hi all,

Just have a look at some of the fabulous Y6 pupils reading some of their own wonderful writing to the Y3s! It looks like everyone had a splendid time.  Every Y6 pupil wrote a ‘lost’ chapter from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and then read it to a child in Y3! What a lovely idea!

Please post about the type of character and room you created Y6.

I will post some great examples of the writing later.

Welcome Back!!!

Hi everyone,

We hope you’ve had a splendid holiday, are suitably refreshed and are ready to do some excellent work this term!  Why not let us know what you are looking forward to this term and also if you have any goals that you have made (New Year resolutions)?

Well, I’m going to sign up for a 5 km race (and then a 10 km one later in the year… gulp), so hopefully that will give me an incentive to get fitter. I’ll have to show some perseverance – one of this term’s values –  to get my fitness levels up for sure… otherwise, I will have a very slow time!


Cracking Christmas Reads!

Why not curl up with a lovely book over the long Christmas holidays? In my opinion, it’s the best way to improve your English and have fun at the same time!

Ms Sayce is going to read The Night Before the Night Before Christmas (by Kes Grey) with her young son and  Ms Stenhouse is going to read The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory (however this isn’t a children’s book). I’m not sure what to read, so please give me some suggestions.

Here is a list of recommended festive books.


Please tell us about what you read and why you liked it!


Christmas is Coming!!!

Ho, ho, ho!!! Here are our wonderful Y6 Reps, who helped us decorate the tree. Some of them have made decorations for the top (an angel, Santa, star… anything Christmassy), so why don’t you? We are trying to re-use materials to be eco-friendly, so get your thinking caps on and make a decoration.

Bring it to us in our office and the best ones will be put onto the tree (and get a purple form!)

Also, please tell us about what you are looking forward to most around Christmas time. And remember, it’s not just about receiving presents…  For example, I’m really looking forward to spending lots of time with my family and friends in England, as I don’t get to see them as often as I would like.

Fantastic Recorder Playing!!!

What do you think of Y6As recorder playing? I think they must have practised a lot!

Congratulations Marta!!!

Here is Marta in Y6 receiving her 5th purple form in 2 days! Well done, you should be very proud of yourself Marta, I know we are. And that’s 50 points for your house too. Keep up the great work!

European Week for Waste Reduction

This week we are celebrating the European Week for Waste Reduction in Primary. We are focusing on plastic waste again this year due to the devastating effect it is having on our planet. Please watch the video to see how it is harming our planet and what each of us can do to help.
In school, the eco-warriors have been presenting the issue to classes and giving positive dojos to the children that have no plastic in their snacks. At the end of the week the class which has been awarded the most positive dojos for this cause will get a class purple form.
Remember, if you can’t reuse it, refuse it!

The New Eco Warriors 2018/19

The New Eco Warriors 2018/19

We were overwhelmed with the response to this year’s request for eco-warriors, receiving 87 entries in total from years 3 to 6! It is wonderful to see so many students passionate about the environment and wanting to make a difference. We had some fantastic entries, which made it hard to decide on the final winners, but we finally have our chosen 16, who will help the school to be greener this year and inspire others to do the same.
The eco-warriors for this year are: Mariia (3A), Alexandra  (3B), Sapphira  (3C), Alejandro  (3D), Lucia  (4A), Carolina (4B), Emma  (4C), Paloma  (4D), Rosa (5A), Amelie  (5A), Sara  (5B), Cristina  (5C), Lucia  (5D), Jason  (6A), Carmen (6C) and Claudia  (6D).
A big congratulations to our new eco-warriors for this academic year!
