How are you all doing?
It’s Mrs Rickards here saying hello and that I miss you all so much.
I have loved seeing all your photos and examples of work and hearing how hard you are working at home. I was very impressed to see that someone has gone ahead and made their slippers. (Have a look on our DT page above for some feedback!) Remember we said that you no longer have to include sewing as part of the project so if you are happy to make your slippers over the Easter holiday please do, but make sure you send in a photo so I know who has competed them!
I also loved seeing some Easter cards from this week’s art. If any of you have made a card please send in a photo as soon as you can. Have a look at the Art page above to see our Gallery so far! Good luck with the Easter Challenge that has come home today, it’s full of brilliant ideas to try and enjoy your time at home. Let us know how you get on.
Look after each other and remember our golden rule, treat others as you would like to be treated!
Much love Mrs Rickards.
Don't forget to take time to relax.
You could use an App like Chill Panda.
Good Morning Foxes... Again
Another challenge for you.... Go to Badgers page and become a Defender of Mathematica..... You will find the BBC bitesize link in the maths icon.... Get to battle fearsome foes and travel to dangerous lands.... Don't forget to pack your trusty pencil and some paper to take along with you... Good Luck
I've looked at the vital statistics on TT rock stars and have notified Miss Wren of this week's winner..... So read the Swan to find out who it is.
The next winner will be from Year 6 so keep earning those valuable coins..... Who will it be? We'll find out after the Easter holidays.
God luck and keep practicing Miss Goodall
This is Alfie's letter.
I really like the topic of Alfie's persuasive letter...
He is persuading people to stay at home!
Take care everyone!

I hope you are all ok and enjoying the activities we have planned for you. Don’t forget it will soon be Easter so don’t eat too much chocolate! You know I won’t…
Has anyone played on Times Table Rockstar yet? I bet one of Foxes could break a record. A point on your grid for you if you do!!!
Let your mum or dad know that they can give you points as well. You could get them for how brilliantly you do your lessons.
If you think you have completed some good work, please take a photo and send it to me via the office email, and I will put it on the website so everyone can see. I certainly can’t wait to see what you have done.
Here is a little challenge for you… who can build the tallest tower using just newspaper and tape? Send me a picture of it and say how tall it is.
Catch up with you all soon,
Foxes have set their own targets for the year and aim to achieve them!
Welcome back to all the new Year 5 and 6. We hope you have had a really great summer! We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead and have been busy planning activities that we hope will inspire the children.
We know this is going to be a year of lots of hard work, especially for Year 6, but, I am sure that the children will be prepared to do their very best. It is important that together we encourage them to approach everything they do with a positive attitude.
There are lots of fun things planned for this term. Year 6 will be going on their residential trip in October and we also have Book Week with lots of very exciting visitors and activities in school. Don’t forget to look out for The Big Read on the last Thursday of Term.
Hi All Year 6 (and parents)
I have looked at the weather forecast for our trip to PGL - Windmill HIll - and it looks grey, wet and chilly. Please ensure that you bring a waterproof coat and layers to keep you warm, 2 pairs of trainers, toiletries, clean underwear and a dustbin bag for wet items. Remember to bring a sparkly outfit for the disco.
PARENTS - please show your child what you have packed for them - we have had instances where children do not know what to re pack when we are leaving - as they do not know what belongs to them. If in doubt please label their belongings - We cannot be responsible for lost items.
Finally - please ensure that the school has an up to date phone number so that we can contact you should we need to.

Questions to ask your child about the investigation and what they discovered whilst carrying this out.
What does an electrical circuit need to make it work?
What is a cell?
What happens if you overload the circuit? (put too many bulbs or buzzers into it)

Can you draw the symbols used for a bulb, a buzzer, a wire, a battery, a switch?
Can you make a switch using everyday items? If so what would you need?
