The 2022 Key Stage 2 Tests will be held in May 2022 - further details to follow.

PE: PE lessons will take place every Tuesday and Friday. Children will wear their PE kits to school on a Tuesday only.

Homework: Homework will be put on Google Classroom at the end of the school day on a Thursday and is due in on a Tuesday. The expectation is that children go home and look at the homework on the Thursday and if they do not understand it, they have time to come in and speak with an adult before the weekend. If they still do not understand it over the weekend, they can come in on a Monday and work with an adult to help them understand it.  





Year 6 are having an amazing time.  There's been laughter, tears (when overcoming fears) but, most importantly the words of encouragement, the cheers and the applauds have made us all so proud.  We can't wait to share our photos with you at our leavers assembly in a couple of weeks but here are a few sneak peaks! 

During our Science topic of 'Light', we looked at refraction. We investigated how refraction changes the direction that light travels. We learnt that light waves travel at a different speed when they go through other transparent materials, such as water or glass. This causes the rays of light to change direction and bend. This is known as refraction. Refraction creates illusions. Because light bends when it travels between air and water or glass, objects seen through these materials look bent or distorted.
