Happy new year and welcome back to our Spring 1 term.  Already, as I am writing this, I can see small green shoots emerging from dormant bulbs.  We have another exciting and busy term to look forward to.   I hope you have had a lovely  break whatever you did and wherever you went, I look forward to hearing the children share.


Our topic is "Darwin's Delights" and will focus on:

  • recognising that living things have changed over time and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago
  • recognising that living things produce offspring of the same kind, but normally offspring vary and are not identical to their parents
  • identifying  how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment in different ways and that adaptation may lead to evolution
 Our art will be based around the insect photography of Levin Biss and we will be improving our sketching and watercolour skills.

In music we will continue to learn to play the recorder and hope to be able to entertain our Reception buddies very soon! We will be looking at jazz music.

We will be reading a lovely story by Vivien Alcock called The Monster Garden, should you have a copy please could you bring it in to school for us to use, thank you.


Year 6 continues to be an exciting year, we have elected House Captains, the children continue to spend time with their buddies in reception, helping them to settle in and adapt to school life.  Most importantly the year 6 children take a role in worship and get to sit on chairs!


Homework will be given on Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday.  Please don't struggle with homework, just ask Mrs Allen or myself for any guidance.


P.E. is timetabled for Monday afternoon, however please ensure P.E. kits are in school all week as sometimes we have other opportunities.

Chicken check! We had to say goodbye to our three cockerels who have gone to their new home on an allotment and having a wonderful time! Our remaining six chickens continue to investigate all that goes on at school - one was actually found sitting in the music trolley amongst the percussion instruments ( not sure which one they prefer but hopefully nothing too loud!)
