Hello all - you can find the recent newsletter, where you'll find info on next week's trip and the holiday homework, on the letters page in Parents' Zone.


A big thank you, again, for your support with the Production.  If you've seen it, we're sure you'll agree that Year 5 have done us proud.

Crikey, it's been a while!  We trust you are well.  A letter is on its way home regarding the plan for next week's big trip.  Please read this to help to ensure that the day goes smoothly.

Your children have been ploughing through assessments this week and deserve great credit for their perseverance and positivity. 

As a result, we've decided that their homework this week should be to have a look on the British Museum website:

This will provide a flavour of what to expect on Thursday. 


Many thanks to those of you who offered to assist us on the day.  Family members of the following will be accompanying us: Harry H, Scarlett, Oliver G, Owen, Danny, Enya, Olivia, Oliver B, Rowan, Aaron and Noah.

Not long now...

Happy New Year, if it's not too late to wish that to you all!  We hope you had a fabulous Christmas and we've heard many stories of the fun your children have had over the break. We must not let this moment pass without sending our sincere gratitude to you all for the gifts we received. 

We're pleased with how quickly Year 5 have settled back into a more familiar routine this term.  We are beginning our new Topic, the Environment, with a Science and Geography focus.  Swimming has begun, as you'll know, with Group 1 going until half-term, Group 2 after.  Art week is also taking place in a few weeks, which will include a visit to Lakeside Gallery.  More details to follow.

Young Voices takes place this Tuesday.  a long, but memorable day awaits.  The rest of the week is fairly normal...

We are delighted with how the children have settled back in to Cottages' life.  The Victorians topic is proving very popular and we were mightily impressed with the variety and quality of the homework produced during the summer.  The children have had a good look at their peers' efforts and shared their own knowledge. 

Hopefully, you got to see our first newsletter.  If not, please go to the newsletter page.  Please note that, due to a tweaking of the timetable, Games will now be on a Monday, not a Tuesday. This is far more suitable logistically. 

Believe it or not, we are planning to create Christmas Cards next week!  Very early, but if it works for shops and pubs, it works for us.  As you may remember, these will be created by your child with a view to your purchasing some should you wish.  The funds raised will be spent on resources or suchlike for the school.
