message from the headteacherIn this, the final half term of 2018, we are looking forward to the rich variety of activities that we associate with this busy time of year. From Christmas Shows to Parents' Evenings, from Carols on the Crescent to Reading Workshops, there is a rich mixture of opportunities to become involved even more deeply with your school. Keep a close eye on 'Upcoming Events' to make sure you stay in the know!
Year 6
What a fantastic start to Year 6! The class have settled in very well and new rules are being followed! Our only class rule was decided on by the children, as they believe it covers all aspects of expectation in school.
"Treat others as we would wish to be treated ourselves".
We are getting to grips with the high expectations in behaviour as well as work, and children have done a lot of work on 'growth mindset' - involving not using phrases such as 'I can't do this' or 'this is good enough' and instead focusing on finding different strategies, striving to improve and understanding that making mistakes is how we learn.



Learning Goals
The Curriculum overview in the E-Bag will give a detailed breakdown of what we are covering this term.
Literacy will be focusing on figurative language and Narrative/poetry - learning a range of skills and then applying in writing.
