I just wanted to say goodbye and good luck to you all for the rest of the year.

I am so proud of you all and have loved teaching you again. It has been great to see you blossom and grow since Year 4.

I will miss you and be thinking of you.

I know that you will do me and yourselves proud throughout the rest of the year and I will be in touch soon to let you all know about my new addition!

Wishing you all a lovely half term break.

Thanks for all the warm wishes from you and your families - it really means a lot.

Mrs Price


Last week for Mrs Price. 

We are all very sad to say goodbye to Mrs Price. We will be thinking of her over the next few weeks and we will keep you posted with any news. 

Thank you Mrs Price for everything!


Welcome to Miss Lankester!

Even though we are sad to say goodbye to Mrs Price we are very lucky to have Miss Lankester join us in our class. 


Year 6 Gymnastics!


Well done year six for a fantastic gymnastics session on Friday with Miss Lankester. It was great to see you experimenting with travelling, jumping and balance sequences. A massive well done to our student coaches who were advising each other on how to land safely and jump using the spring boards!


Don't forget your indoor kit for this Friday as we are planning on using the wall frame to up our skills.


Pictures to follow!


Miss Lankester



Dress up as a book character on the day.

Reading Recommendations


We have many avid readers in our class, which is fantastic! We are so pleased that lots of you really enjoy reading for pleasure.

Maybe for your next book though, you could try a different author or even a different genre to continue to expand your reading knowledge.

Much of the reading tests nowadays expect a very broad range of vocabulary to be used and continuing to read widely may help with this.

Please see below for some ideas of books you may like to try.

If you have any recommendations, why not let us know?
