Another great week under our belt – well done Year Six!

The internet didn’t "freeze" too badly despite the snow (see what I did there?) and we carried on with our great learning.

The first chapter of our novel has been read and questions answered: now for Chapter 2!

Pictures and ideas are coming in thick and fast for your WW2 projects – keep them coming. If you are looking for inspiration, check out our new gallery at the bottom of the page (remember to click on “all galleries” to see the full range).

Have a great weekend and we will see you online, on Monday, come rain, sleet or snow.

WOW! What an amazing Year 6 cohort we have!

We have been blown away by the Year 6 attitude to their online learning so far.

The Year 6 team are incredibly proud of the way our pupils have adapted to the remote live teaching element that we are now offering during lockdown. The pupils have been conducting themselves superbly, both online and in school as part of the Critical Worker bubble.

Everyone is really pulling together during this unusual time to make this new style of teaching and learning successful. We really appreciate the positive and constructive feedback we have received so far. As a result, we have been able to adapt our lessons to make them as impactful as possible. This is new to all of us!

We look forward to seeing all of the fantastic learning that the children will complete. We are excited to share this work with everyone here on our class page.
