We have had a fantastic start to Year 6 this term!

We have tried to create a woodland in our classroom to get a real feel for our topic this term.  

We have explored our woods looking at the different trees, leaves and life out there. In there, we found a note in the woods from someone who needed help and they gave us a meeting time. We then met Robin Hood! This was amazing. He needs to recruit some followers to help him survive in the woods and will tell us what our tasks are! We are still excited to find out more about Robin Hood now and this will come over this term.

Watch out for more to follow!

There are few things better than seeing wonder spread across a child's face and as staff, we were priviledged to have many of these moments on Tuesday 5th September when our pupils came back to school.  

After being amazed at the sight of their transformed classrooms (many now resemble forests!) we came together in our school hall where the pupils were once again delighted to see huge changes!   You see, over the Summer, our amazing staff spent many hours ensuring their classrooms and learning environments immerse the children in the whole-school topic of "Into the woods".  At the same time, we had a team in modernising our school hall, resurfacing the floor and plastering and painting the brickwork.  In addition, Miss Rees had set to decorating the library walls! All of these changes put together are amazing and have really brightened the school up.  There is a real buzz around the place and long may it continue!   We're happy to extend an invitation for you to come in and see these classrooms yourselves and meet your child's new teacher on Monday 11th September from 3:30pm to 4:00pm. 

Another change we have undertaken is to refocus the core principles we wish to instill in our young  people.  Taking inspiration from the Church of England's own published document and vision for education, we will now talk about our 4 virtues (instead of 12 values).  These are:

  • Community
  • Dignity
  • Wisdom
  • Hope

If you get a few moments, please talk with your children about what these virtues mean in the wider world.  We will be covering these in school in the coming weeks.

Finally, I hope to raise the profile of reading within our school community.  This will see an increase in the selection of books on offer to the children, an improved, engaging library area being developed and awards being given out for achievement in reading.  More information on this initiative will follow as move into the term.

I am really excited about this term and look forward to working with your children and yourselves as we continue on our journey of improvement.

Regards

Mr Albert
