Year 6 - Miss Ashdown and Miss Lankester


We break up on Friday 12th April at 2pm. 

Well done to everyone for working so hard this term. We hope you have a lovely Easter and we will see many of you for SATs club.

See below for more details.  

If you are unable to attend we return to school on Monday 29th April. 





Well done to all those in Year Six who entered the Young Writers poetry competition. Quite a few students in the class have been offered the opportunity to have their literature published in a book called 'Poetry Wonderland - Poets of South London'. Letters have gone home with those students today and will require parental permission. Please return permission slips by 19th April.


Well done Year Six - what a fantastic bunch of writers you are!

SATs Easter Club


We will be running SATs Easter Club on the 24th, 25th and 26th of April between 10am and 3pm. Students can wear their own clothes and must bring their own lunch.


This will be a really valuable time for the students to revise and boost their confidence before SATs week in May.


Looking forward to seeing as many Year 6s as possible there!


Lent has begun

Well done to the whole of year six for fabulously representing the school at Ash Wednesday mass on Wednesday morning. The children's behaviour was exemplary as was their attitude to singing solos, reading and receiving their Ashes. Benjamin wrote this fantastic reflection on Unity during Lent and our time at mass. 



7th -10th June

Please bring the completed medical information form back to

school asap. 

We have some very exciting activities to look forward to.

A list of what you will need to take will be sent out after the holidays. 


Recycled Rivers!

Bring in your recycled plastic and cardboard to make our river models in Geography. Please make sure it is clean and not an old meat container. Black bin bags at the back of the classroom to store them. We will start to make them on the 10th of April, so please ensure they are in by then. 


Thank you to Tullie for writing this informative brief for all!


Miss Lankester



Some great Geography work from Lohima this week - detailed and beautifully presented.

Don't forget to bring in your recycling for our river models. Many thanks to those that have brought in already, we have quite a nice collection starting!

filament, stigma, stamen, anther, ovary, petal, sepal ?

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?
