Please provide your child with a named sun hat and ensure that they have a named plastic water bottle (with sports cap opening). 

If your child requires sun cream, please ensure they apply it before school. If you wish them to reapply sun cream before breaktimes, lunchtimes or outdoor PE, please provide them with a named bottle. Staff are not allowed to apply sun cream to children, so please ensure that your child can apply it themselves.

 Living Streets Walk to School Week:

Next week (22nd-26th May) we are taking part in Living Streets Walk to School Week. This fun and engaging week-long activity for primary schools has been built to make pupils experience first-hand the importance of walking to school. 


Through this challenge, children will be well on their way to reaching their recommended 60 minutes minimum of physical activity per day before even reaching the school gates!  


This year's challenge encourages children to travel actively to school every day of the week. Meeting various animals along the way, they'll learn about the important reasons to walk and the difference it can make for individuals, communities and the planet!

On Thursday and Friday, our Year 6 Eco Reps will be handing out Walk to School badges for those children that have walked some/all of the week to celebrate their achievements.  


Happy walking! 


Congratulations to Imani, who has been awarded the prestigious Jack Petchey Award for outstanding achievement.

We are so proud of you!


SATs Week:

We would like to say a big well done to all of the children for their hard work this week completing their SATs. 


Each Class Teacher Award this week has been awarded to all of the children. Well done everyone! 


Coronation Day Celebrations

What a wonderful day! Everyone looked amazing in their red, white and blue and spent the morning making flags and crowns for the parade.


The parade was held on the main field and started with a rousing rendition of “The Sound of the Trumpets” (a specially commissioned coronation song for schools).


Following that, each year group paraded around the field whilst everyone clapped and waved their flags.


Just at the end of the parade the heavens opened but, in true British style, we carried on regardless! (It’s what the King would have wanted).


 We hope you all have a glorious coronation weekend.

Year 6 Mayan Workshop
Dear Parent/ Carer,
I am writing to ask if you could please make a contribution toward the Mayan workshop that we have arranged for the 18th and 25th May.
Unfortunately, so far we have not received enough contributions to pay for it and unless we receive a considerable amount more by Friday the 5th May, we will have to cancel the workshop which will be really disappointing for the children.
Please log into your Arbor account and make a contribution toward this. You will find this under 'activities, trips'. If you are having trouble making payment please contact the school office.
Many thanks,
Mrs Bee 

This week is Deaf Awareness Week (2nd-5th May)

They have all now been sent to Buckingham Palace.

As a rights respecting school we are taking part in UNICEF UK’s OutRight campaign this year.


The rights respecting class reps are leading pupils in an activity to create a poster showing why we think healthcare is important for all children.  A selection of posters from the school will be displayed in the school or sent to Unicef to be used as part of the OutRight campaign.


OutRight Campaign:

Through OutRight children and young people are supported to learn about, and speak out on, children’s right to the best possible health and how strong health systems support this. As part of UNICEF UK’s efforts to promote children’s voices we want to make sure that decision-makers of all kinds understand:

• why this is an issue that children and young people care about

• how health and health systems affect children’s rights

We plan to do this by sharing children’s work on this critical children’s rights issue, with an important decision maker and their team at the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) of the UK Government.

Dear Parents/Carers, 

Get set… we’re taking part in Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel 2023 the UK’s largest inter-school cycling, walking, wheeling and scooting challenge. The challenge runs from 20-31 March. It’s free and we would love everyone to be involved. 


What do you need to do? 


Encourage your child(ren) to walk, use a wheelchair, scoot or cycle to school on as many days as possible during the event.  



Why we are taking part 


Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel is a great way to build physical activity in children’s daily routine which is important for their physical health and mental wellbeing.  


Active school runs also help to reduce congestion and air pollution outside the school gate. A 2021 YouGov study showed nearly half of UK children worry about air pollution near their school. And that children thought active travel was the best away to bring down these pollution levels. 

Plus there are some great prizes to be won every day if we get enough children taking part! 



Useful resources 


To help you prepare, Sustrans has developed a handy free guide to walking, cycling or scooting to school. It is packed with advice to help you have hassle-free journey to school.  


Download your free family guide using this link:   



For more information about the event go to . Enjoy the challenge!

Thank you for your continued support

DT Resources for next week:


Dear Parents/ Guardians, 


Next week, we are going to be making Mayan story telling puppets in DT. They need to make sure that one part of their puppet moves. The children will need to bring in old pieces of fabric, string, wool and any recyclable materials e.g. cardboard, pringle tubs, lollysticks, wood skewers and straws. Please can the resources be brought in on Monday 20th March. 



The Year 6 Team  


Litter Hero!


We are very proud to learn that Seth is a litter hero and gives up his spare time to help keep Banstead Downs clean.


Banstead Downs forms part of Banstead Commons and is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the rare flora and fauna recorded on the site.  32 species of butterfly have been recorded on the site and the site holds the record for the longest-running butterfly transect in Surrey, which provides significant data related to how butterfly populations have changed over time.  The mosaic of habitats - chalk downland, pockets of scrub and secondary woodland - provide ideal habitats for a ranger of invertebrates and birds. 


Banstead Downs is a beautiful site to visit during the summer months, you can literally walk through clouds of butterflies on a still and warm summer's day.


The Conservators are incredibly grateful for Seth's efforts to help to preserve and conserve this precious site. 


If you are interested in ecology and conservation, and would like to join Seth and the other volunteers, then please contact the Banstead Commons Conservators:

Dear Parents and Carers,

Next week (WB 30/01/23) Year 6 will be having mock SATs. We do this so that the children get a feel for how the SATs will be when we do them in May. Some children will take the tests in the hall and some children take them in classrooms (this is done so that they can all spread out comfortably). There is no preparation needed, it is purely to familiarise the children with what SATs week will look like... a dress rehearsal!

Thank you

Years 5 & 6 Choir Performances

This week, the Years 5 & 6 choir performed to the residents of two local nursing homes: Jesmund and Abbeyfeild. It was a wonderful experience for both the children and the residents and they have been invited back to perform again in the spring term! 

Class Party Update: If children are wearing a Winter or Christmas top or accessory tomorrow, they can wear it to school rather than bring it to change in to. 


Class Parties : Thursday 15th December

The children will be having their class parties on Thursday 15th December. Children must come to school in full uniform, but can bring in their Winter/Christmas top and or accessory from last week to change into if they wish.


The children do not need to bring in any food or drink.

Day 4: Thursday

Another fantastic night’s sleep, with no shenanigans, so the disco was on. The excitement was palpable. 


Breakfast was pain au chocolat,  croissant, porridge, fruit salad, yoghurt, toast and cereal. Everyone ate well and headed off to their morning activities. The sky was overcast but the rain held off all morning which was wonderful. When I’m home, ask me what type of shelter I built and how I made my own fire.


Lunch was sweet and sour chicken, sweet chilli Quorn and vegetable stir fry, Egg fried rice (or plain rice) stir fry vegetables and noodles and tempura vegetables. Delicious!


Back out again for more activities. .. the weather took a turn and the heavens opened but when you’re up to your waist in a puddle, it doesn’t really matter!


Dinner was Mac and Cheese or bolognese pasta with garlic bread and everyone cleared their plates again.


Right now we are at the disco, busting a move, whilst DJ Jazzy Burke throws out the choons!


Remember that we are setting off tomorrow afternoon and are due back around 3.30 at Dorset Road gate. We will try to keep you updated with a more exact time but if you don’t hear from us, come at 3.30. Please do not call the office.


We know you will be pleased to see us, but please stand well back and let us off the coach, and safely through the gates into the playground. The teachers must see the children go with their adult.


If you need medication back straight away, then please ask a teacher. If it can wait until Monday then please collect it at pick up on Monday (it will be brought out with the children).


Any lost property will also be brought out at the end of the day on Monday for you to look through.


We’re all looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

Day 3: Wednesday

We all slept like logs last night and had to be plucked from our beds this morning! Breakfast was a choice of cereal, toast, yogurt, fresh fruit salad, boiled eggs and pancakes with maple syrup (with any weird and wonderful combinations accommodated!)


The rain made a comeback first thing, but in the words of Alfred Wainwright “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.”  and Parents…you have excelled yourselves with the kit! Everyone has everything that they need, so the weather isn’t stopping us.


Lunch was a choice of lasagne or pasta with tomato sauce and potato wedges. There was a lovely fresh salad bar to choose from too.


Back out to the activities after lunch and the rain had stopped, the sky had cleared and the sun was shining! Everyone is being so brave and challenging themselves to do things that they didn’t think they could do. When I get home, ask me to tell you about one thing that I did that was out of my “comfort zone” and one thing I did to encourage or support a friend.


Dinner was sausages (pork or veggie) with mash, vegetables and gravy… delicious!


Half of us are heading off on the night walk now and the other half are at the tuck shop. After that we can choose what we want to do: hang out in our rooms, go to the games room, watch a movie or watch the football with Mr. Burke.


The plan is to have a disco tomorrow night but whether it goes ahead or not depends on our behaviour. We have been amazing so far so, providing there’s no shenanigans at bedtime tonight, it’s on!


Mrs. Cook has found out that some of the teachers’ parents are reading the website every night too, to see how their babies are getting on! Please rest assured that they are as well behaved as the children, are eating well and are also on track for tomorrow’s disco! wink


STILL no need to worry… we are having so much fun.

Love Year 6 xxx heart



Day 2: Tuesday

We were all up early this morning and raring to go.  Breakfast was­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ a choice of eggs, bacon, beans, cereal, toast, porridge, yogurt…or the whole lot for the hungrier amongst us!


The weather was finally on our side… the sun shone and there wasn’t a drop of rain in sight as we all enjoyed the morning activities.


Lunch was a jacket potato with a choice of fillings or a leek and mushroom pie. The sticky toffee pudding, with a toffee sauce, was delicious!


Then off to our next activities and everyone is really getting into the swings of things now (quite literally!) When I get home ask me about the tunnels, leap of faith and forest adventure!


Dinner was taco wraps with a choice of fillings and Mexican style rice with a flap jack for pudding.


Half of us are now on a night walk whilst the other half are visiting the tuck shop (tomorrow we will swap over).


Still no need to worry about us… we’re having a ball!

Love Year 6 xxx


Day 1: Monday

The coach ride was quick and easy and we all arrived in good time with no travel sickness. As soon as we got here we found out where our rooms were, made our beds and made ourselves at home.


Once our rooms were sorted, we had our packed lunch, got our waterproofs on and headed out to our first activity. It rained the whole time but it didn’t dampen our spirits and we all had a great time. Then we had our second activity and before we knew was dinner time!


Dinner was pizza, chips and sweetcorn with an optional salad bar… everyone cleared their plates!


After dinner, we had some down time and then had the choice of watching the England game from earlier (no one knew the score!) or taking part in some team challenge games.


Later on we will have a hot chocolate and head to bed.


We are all safe, warm and happy so please don’t worry about us!

Please remember that children must be in the correct school uniform which should be clearly labelled with their name and class. (see our school website for full details of the uniform policy).

Please ensure that your child’s P.E kit is in school from the start of term and again,  each item is clearly labelled with their name and class.  The children will require their P.E. kit during the first week of school and this should include trainers for outdoor use.
