French Trip: Homeward Bound

We have left the centre (8.30 am French time) and are homeward bound!

What a Wonderful Wednesday!


We have had another packed day in Normandy. We split into our coaches for the two outings.


This morning, one group visited an organic bakery, where we learned how bread was made and then got the chance to make our own baguettes. We then were able to enjoy eating them. The other group visited the Château de Crèvecœur, which is a medieval castle. We learned about the 100 Years War and completed a scavenger hunt to find the treasure. We also enjoyed playing some medieval games.


In the afternoon, the groups swapped visits. After that, we returned to the centre, where we were able to enjoy some time in the swimming pool before dinner. This evening, we have spent some time on the beach playing games and enjoying the lovely weather before our return to England tomorrow.

Tuesday in Normandy

We have had a fun day so far.


This morning, we took the coach to the biscuiterie, where we learnt about how the biscuits are made and the special significance of the regional produce. We spent some of our pocket money on biscuits and treats that will (hopefully) make it back to the UK.


After lunch, we travelled to the Pegasus Bridge Memorial, where we had a guided tour of the museum and learnt about the D-Day landings.


On our return to the centre, we played outside for a few minutes and then had a short French lesson with a native French speaker. We also spent some time on the beach opposite the centre, which is one of the D-Day landings beaches.


We also enjoyed fish and chips for dinner this evening.


French Trip Update


Dear Parents/Carers,

We have arrived safely... to this wonderful view! We are all about to have a lovely meal before we settle in properly to our home for the week!


We are already having a wonderful time so don't worry about us! Looking forward to our first full and fun packed day tomorrow.

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! 

Design Technology Week 6


Next week, we will be making Tudor houses as part of our topic on the Tudors. 

Please could you child bring a box into school to form the basis of the construction. 

Children can bring in other materials such as coloured card,string  etc , but this is not compulsory and we have plenty in school they can use. 


Many thanks,

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.

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.



Thank you!

Dear Parents, 

This next half term, as part of our Tudors topic, we will be reading Shakespeare's  Tempest and completing  associated tasks. 

The Globe, in London, are staging a children's production of the play this Easter, so I thought you may wish to take your children to see it. Ticket prices vary, but they offer £5 pit tickets where you stand or take a cushion to sit on. 

Plays at the Globe are always well produced and an amazing experience for all.

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!

This week, teachers have given out whole class awards for the children's participation in the Spectacular Space Show.


We were all so impressed with the children's focus on ensuring that they created the best space show possible, that it was difficult to single out any children in particular. 

Both performances were amazing and paid tribute to all of the children's hard work and general support of each other during the process.


A huge well done to everyone !

Our Linguascope subscription has been renewed for this academic year. The login details have been shared with you via email, as we cannot post these online. Linguascope is a fantastic resource which allows children to practise their skills in a range of languages through games and interactive activities. We will be using some of these in our KS2 French lessons, but we would also love to encourage the children to practise at home. To access Linguascope, you can either download the app or visit



Linguascope | The World's Number 1 Interactive Language Learning Platform for Schools

Our language games and activities, organised in over 140 topic areas, are developed to match curriculum requirements. Each topic area is composed of a series of activities and accompanied by a printable worksheet for extension or consolidation work.

We are delighted to say that on 17/11/22 Avenue were re-accredited with the Wellbeing Award for Schools. This is truly a whole school effort and is an external validation of what we already knew: that Health and Wellbeing is at the heart of our school and influences everything that we do. Thank you to all the Parents and Carers who filled in surveys for the award at the end of last year and the start of this year.

Reading Suggestions for Year Five 


Last week, a parent asked for a copy of the "Year Five Reading Trail" which I thought would be useful for all of you to look at, so I've shared it below. The idea is to encourage children to read by following the trail and reading all of the books included. I would avoid buying/borrowing "Stig of the Dump" as we use this book during Guided Reading lessons this half term. Happy Reading !


Mrs Maddock

Year Five Leader


Dear Parents/Carers,

Due to rising cases of Covid among both staff and pupils, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the face to face Parent Forum Meetings scheduled for next week.


So that you still have the information, Year Group Leaders will record the contents of the meeting and they will be shared with you by 30/09/22.


The safety of our school community is always our first priority and we thank you for your understanding.

Anglo Saxon House-building Activity- Week Beginning 10th October.



During the week beginning 10th October,  children in Year Five will have the exciting opportunity to build their own Anglo Saxon dwelling. To help with the creation of their models they will need a cardboard box into school (not too thick so it can easily be cut with school scissors). All other materials will be provided by school, however if your child wishes to bring in additional materials, we are happy for them to do so. 

Could all resources be brought into school during the week beginning 3rd October. 


Many thanks for your support, 


The Year Five Team

Open Classroom (Years 1-6) Thursday 8th September 3.15 – 3.45

We are delighted to invite you to see your child’s new classroom, and meet their new teacher on Thursday 8th September 3.15 – 3.45


Please collect your child as usual and then wait in the playground. As soon as the Teachers have returned to the classroom, we will let you in.


We look forward to seeing you.


We are all really looking forward to seeing the children on Monday 5th September. Your children’s teachers have planned wonderful activities to welcome the children into their new classes and will be spending time getting to know your child and helping them feel confident as they begin the new year.


Morning drop-off: Please drop off your child at the Avenue Road gate. The gates will be open 8:10am – 8:30am. The children will then make their way down the path to the Jubilee playground where they will proceed to their new classrooms.


If you also have a child in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, please drop and collect your children off via the Dorset Road gate and follow the guidance on your younger child’s pick-up times and locations. Please note, only children with siblings in Nursery to Year 2 should use the Dorset Road gate.


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.
