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!


Miss Sutton will be the class teacher Monday to Friday until Jan 22nd. 


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.

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


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

Friday afternoon is the class teacher's PPA time. 

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

For P.E on a Thursday - your child will need to come to school in their P.E kit.

 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. 


Our Green Zone Days:
