Eco School and Change for Life Club invite you to run, walk or jog a mile during Walk to School Week.
On Wednesday 22nd May we would like everyone to “Train your Trainers” and take part in a sponsored mile around the school. To celebrate this event, you may wear your trainers to school that day too!
Please ask your family members and close friends to sponsor you. This will also be an inter house sporting event so first ones across the finish in each class get points!
The funds that you raise will be used to buy more sports equipment for our school. If we raise enough money we may be able to purchase another eco-friendly table tennis table as well as basketballs, footballs, hoops and skipping ropes.
So please, please complete the sponsor form. Let’s have fun, get fit and raise funds!
Year 6 will be celebrating this Friday with a fun filled day to celebrate the end of SATs week!
Among other activities, we will be looking to watch a film with Year 6. We have made a shortlist of films, 2 of which are PG. These do not contain any inappropriate language however they are classified by the BBFC as containing brief mild threat and violence.
Please note, the class teachers have watched these films and feel they are appropriate for the year group to view however we will need permission from parents. Please complete the permission slip in the letter and return it as soon as possible.
If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact either of the class teachers or Mrs Orr.
Miss Bjorck and Mrs Bowden
Our school have been chosen by the Department for Education’s Testing Standards Agency (the government department tasked with issuing and setting the tests taken by school age children) to trial some national curriculum tests. This will be part of their national sample to make sure that the tests themselves are valid, reliable and at the appropriate difficulty to accurately assess the children’s knowledge.
Please note, the Testing Standards agency are looking at assessing the tests themselves, not the children and the results from these tests will not appear anywhere except for the Agencies review of the test. They will not be recorded against any of the children taking part in the trial.
The school’s participation in the trial is statutory meaning we are required to take part however this will not affect your child’s upcoming tests nor will the children taking part be judged on the results.
The tests that our school has been chosen to trial will take place on Thursday 2nd May and are maths based tests. Your children should come in as normal.
Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Clifford who is our school’s representative to deal with the Testing Standards Agency.
Key Stage 2 SATs week starts Monday 13th May 2018. Detailed below is the timetable of tests for the week:
Monday 13th May – English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling, Paper 1 - Short answer questions and Paper 2 - Spelling.
Tuesday 14th May –English Reading test.
Wednesday 15th May –Maths, Paper 1 – Arithmetic and Paper 2 - Reasoning.
Thursday 16th May – Maths Paper 3 - Reasoning.
It is vital that your child attends school every day that week. Tests will begin at 9am and therefore they need to be in school no later than 8:45am. In order to help them perform to the best of their abilities, we are inviting every child to have breakfast at school (Monday – Thursday). We will be inviting the children to join breakfast club from 8:15am where we will serve a choice of cereals or toast and a glass of squash or milk. There will be no cost for the breakfast.
This is the perfect opportunity for your child to settle into school each day and if you would like them to attend the breakfasts please fill in the slip on the letter.
Our school photographer will be in next Thursday (2nd May) to take the annual class photos. These will be taken throughout the morning so please remember to be in nice and early!
The photos will be available to parents of children in your child’s class to buy so if you DO NOT wish for your child to be part of their class photo, please contact the teacher and fill in the slip from the letter.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
This is where we'll post all school news and updates. If you require paper copies of any information on our website then please contact Mrs Goggin in our school reception.
