Reading Books   

Regular reading at home is a key component to learning. Children will be given a reading book to take home at the start of the half term. When they read with an adult, they are expected to record this in their reading journal and have it signed.  For every three reads that the children complete and log with an adult, they shall receive a golden ticket to be entered for a prize draw at the end of the term. 

Please ensure you comment and sign reading record books. If your child is struggling with their book or do not enjoy it after attempts at reading it then let us know.


Year 6 have SAT tests at the end of year, below are a variety of links that may help with preparation and revision.

Remember earrings cannot be worn for PE and must be taped if unable to remove BEFORE school





Look what we have been up to so far this year...



For National Poetry Day 2021, we took part in a competition involving the theme of 'This is Me'. We had a day investigating poetry and then got to explore what we are and how powerful we are.


We created our own poems and some of us even read them to the rest of the school! 


Here are a selection of them:

This Is Me Poetry Competition

D&T: Building a waistcoat
