- About Us
We would like to congratulate Zack Meisuria on his good deed! On Tuesday he took a trip down to the police headquarters to receive a 'WOW certificate', commending him on helping a boy in need.
Zack confronted a group of boys who he had seen taking a scooter that didn't belong to them. He advised the boys that although they had made a mistake it wasn't too late to put it right by returning the scooter. The boys took heed of Zack's wise words and returned the scooter to the heartbroken young boy.
Maybe a lesson learnt for everyone......well done Zack!

Welcome back to the Spring term. This term in year 6 we will be starting to prepare children for the end of key stage statutory assessments (KS2 SATs). Therefore, we are offering a booster session on a Tuesday night from 3.15 - 4.00pm. Children will be in their own classes to enable the session to be focused on their individual revision needs. Children can bring a snack to these sessions. Please inform your class teacher if your child can walk home alone following the session. A parent information evening specifically about these assessments will be scheduled later in the term but if you have questions in the meantime please feel free to contact your child's class teacher.
Key dates for the term are as follows:
Tuesday 22nd January - Parent information evening
Wednesday 13th February - Robinwood information evening
Friday 15th February - school closed for staff training
Monday 18th February - Monday 25th February - half term
Monday 25th March - Wednesday 27th March - Robinwood
Wednesday 3rd April - Parents evening
Thursday 4th April - parents morning
Friday 5th April - break up for the end of term
'All the world's a stage!' It has been a day of dramatic pursuits in 6O. The children have enjoyed various speaking and listening activities in order to develop their understanding of our class novel and of our afternoon topic.
In the morning, the children acted out a dramatic rendition of the second chapter of 'The Nowhere Emporium', either playing the role of the brave protagonist, Daniel Holmes, or as the strange and mysterious shop owner. They read the text closely to find clues about the characters, and particularly focused on using facial expressions, tone of voice and gestures in order to develop their portrayal of them.
The children also developed confidence and shared good ideas when performing to the rest of the class. Miss Oxley was extremely impressed with the acting abilities on display and how the children incorporated their understanding of the text.
This afternoon, the children conducted research into the topic of climate change, and used this to help them to decide whether they thought it was an important issue. Drawing on their learning from the morning, they took on a character who had a specific opinion on the topic and took part in a class debate. The class have decided that climate change is something they would like to draw attention to - watch this space!
