The children go swimming on a Monday and have PE on a Thursday. Please ensure your child has a full P.E kit in school at all times. It is expected that all items are named and kept in a clearly named bag.


Our class visits the library on a Wednesday so please make sure books are brought back to be changed.


The children will be given spellings to learn every Monday and will be tested on them on Friday after. Please support your child in learning their spellings through the week.

Reading books will be changed and sent home every Wednesday. Please spend time with your child discussing what they have read to make sure they have understood the text. Your child is expected to answer a question in their journal each week. This will be monitored by staff.

A homework grid relating to the topic being covered will be sent home at the beginning of each half term. The children are expected to research and produce answers to at least 2 of the questions. They can answer the questions with as much creativity as they wish. They will be expected to share their work with the rest of the class.

Science week was interesting. We had workshops with Sublime Science and the 'Bug Lady'.

As part of our topic on Vikings, we went to the Viking Village and became real Vikings for the day!

We had a fabulous trip to Headingley Water Treatment Works. The children learned so much about water, the dangers and how to make it safe to drink.

Year 6 had an amazing time on residential. It was really lovely to see them outside of school and bond more as a group. The children even amazed themselves with the challenges they accomplished.
