WW2 Day

Thank you so much to all the children who made such a wonderful effort today for our WW2 day. We baked, sewed, sung, danced, ate, played, wrote and plotted WW2 gardens. Thank you also to my mother-in-law, who gave up her day to come and sew with the children and my fabulous TAs (Mrs Stankard and Miss Sutton) whom I would be lost without. 


Outdoor learning is so important to the well-being of our children (and staff). Mrs Booker took the Y5/6 to the woods for their first Green Zone session since lockdown. They all had such a lot of fun and came back dirty, smiling and tired! 

It was lovely to hear one of the children saying that the Green Zone wasn't about just one person but about team work!

Welcome to the Year 5/6 page!

Our new class name is The Goldfinches.

I am really looking forward to seeing you all and to be teaching you all again.

From September we will be focusing on being the best that we can be and achieving our Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. I know that some of you will also be keen to earn your School Leaders' Award too. 



I will be the class teacher Monday to Friday until the guidelines change, then I will return to having Friday as my day off.


Your child will not need a pencil case as all resources will be supplied. 

Your child will need to bring their own, labelled water bottle. 

Lunchboxes and school bags can be brought in daily.

Please return ALL school books sent home before Lockdown!

The classroom has been set out according to the Dfe Guidelines, should you have any questions about this, please email me. 

All children should wear school uniform as usual.  


Y5/6 will have P.E with Mrs Booker on a Thursday afternoon and will have either Green Zone with Mrs Booker and Miss Sutton or R.E with Mrs Cox on a Friday afternoon. They will alternate with Y3/4. 

Friday afternoon is my PPA time. 

You will be kept up to date with when your child has Green Zone via the whiteboard in the playground. 


P..E on a Thursday - your child will need to come in their P.E kit to school every Thursday. They will need to be wearing their full school P.E. kit and trainers. If you do not have the the school P.E. kit then please ensure that your child wears the following: plain navy/black joggers/leggings/shorts/skort; plain white t-shirt; plain navy/black hoodie/jumper.


Green Zone on a Friday - your child should come to school wearing suitable clothing for the weather they do not need to be in uniform on their day (see below for dates). The woods is a sheltered spot and is often cold and damp. Wellies and waterproofs are usually needed so please bring those in a separate bag. Please note that they are outside for approx. 2 hours so must me dressed warmly in winter.
