Dear Parents,

As of next week, we will be putting the children into flexible maths groupings. They will all still be learning the same topics, but in groups that enable them to access the learning at a pace that suits them. 

Thank you for your continued support

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

Mrs. Cook

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!

Love Year 6 xxx heart

   

 

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 it...it 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!

Love Year 6 xxx

Please note, only children with siblings in Nursery to Year 2 should use the Dorset Road gate.

Uniform

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). Although resources will be provided in school, if your child wishes to bring their own pencil cases then they can but please ensure that this, and the contents, is fully labelled.

 

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. Smart watches are not permitted in school, due to safeguarding reasons.

 

The children will also require a labelled swimming kit as they will start swimming on the 5th September.
