Hey, we are 24 spirited Year 6 students that love learning and endeavour to do our best so that we can be the best version of ourselves. We have big dreams and work hard at school to fulfil them. We are training our minds to believe that anything is possible.
This is our wonderful class. We love playing with words and have come up with our class slogan. What do you think?...
4/5/18 - STAR WARS DAY - It's been a hectic week getting so much curriculum covered before our tests in a fortnight. The children have worked so hard. At least we all have a long weekend to recover.
20/4/18 Wow! What a week. The sun has finally shown up and put bigger smiles on all of our faces. Thank you to everyone who came to Parents' Evening. It was lovely to see so many of you. A big thank you for all you are doing towards helping with reading at home, completing homework and getting things back to us promptly. We are in it to win it!
13/4/18 Today was career's day. Thank you to everyone that came in to share their knowledge and wares with us. We have all gone away inspired and with a better knowledge of the different types of jobs there are out there.

2/2/18 This week we have been discussing whether mobile phones should be permitted in schools as an aid to learning. The children have written some brilliant balanced arguments. If you talk to them at home I think you will agree that their views are very mature and considered.
31/1/18 Many of you are asking for extra homework booklets. Thank you for this support. I have printed off a reading and maths reasoning booklet for the children for this week's homework. In the homework section below you can find the answers to help you to better support your child (many of the reading answers need to be in more depth than it would initially seem) - Thank you, Miss Aldis
26/1/18 We had a brilliant gymnastics lesson this week with people twirling and twisting like professional gymnasts. The spectacle was quite a wonderful sight.
19/1/18 A friendly reminder that quite a few children are not completing their homework.

Unfortunately they will be put into isolation or given a detention at secondary school if they fail to complete homework.
