We have had a great turn out and sessions will continue right up until the SAT'S (week beginning May 14th) The year 6 children are working so hard and it has been a great revision week. 

Welcome Back to our Summer term. I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter.


Our wonderful year 6 children are entering a very important four weeks of their school career. They are working so hard at their preparation for SAT'S and I would like to say a 'Big Thank You.' to all the parents who are wonderfully supporting their children through this important time. I would also like to thank the year 5 children for wonderfully supporting their year 6 colleagues. 


During the week of the 16th April, the year  6 children will be undertaking a mock SAT'S week, using the official tests from 2017. This will enable the children to experience the SAT's , in the school hall and with the official SAT timings. Also any gaps in knowledge, can then be addressed prior to the official tests. 

Please note: That for the next four weeks, I will be running  a drop in session, each morning at 8 am, for any year 6 child who would like support with any element of their SAT'S preparation. 

On Thursday 8th March we celebrated World Book Day. A big thank you for all parents who have worked so hard on the children's wonderful costumes.
Today on Friday 16th February, we have had a visit from the NSPCC, who have been working with Bannister class on 'Being Safe In Our Environment.' The children contributed to the session with some very thoughtful comments.  
Inspired by our visit to Eden Camp, the children have created a puppet theatre  scene helping children get through the difficulties of War.
