Routine and Information

  • Homework will be set on a Wednesday and handed in the following Monday.
  • Spellings form part of the homework. However these will be set on a Wednesday and tested on the following Wednesday.
  • Please listen to your child read five times a week and comment in their reading journals.
  • Children's pencil cases should only contain a fountain pen, pencil, 1 rubber, 1 pencil sharpener, 1 ruler, 10 or less coloured pencils or felt tips and must be small and flat containing no more than 15 items so that they can fit in trays.
  • As a school who aims to nurture, educate and inspire children, members of staff may work with children in small groups. This is to help with progress in different areas and to enable them to have confidence in their ability.

Knife Crime

P.C.S.O. Jones visited Year 6 today to talk to them about knife crime. He was very impressed with the children's questions and was able to clarify the rules around using knives safely and legally. Thank you P.C.S.O. Jones.

Harvest at St Peter's and St Paul's

Year 6 walked to St Peter's and St Paul's in Church Hanborough today for this year's harvest service. The children have been looking at the beauty of sharing in class and have considered questions that they wanted to answer. After researching their topics they re-wrote the Isley Brothers' Harvest for the world as a response and sang it in church. The lyrics can be found below. Well done Year 6!
