A huge and thoroughly deserved well done to Tom Land, Heather Philips, Chloe Cherrington, Ivy Rhodes, Ellie Treacy, Madeleine Livsey and Dylan Bebb for receiving the Platinum Achiever award for outstanding work and effort, especially whilst working at home, at the end of the Spring term. I deeply regret not being able to present your awards myself.
I hope you enjoy your Button and Bear book tokens and find a fantastic book to enjoy and keep for the rest of you lives. Choose wisely! If you need any advice, then please message Mrs Rowe: she will be able to recommend something wonderful for you.
Room 2 – Tom Land
Tom is an inspiration to all class members! He always follows instructions, completes tasks given to him with care and rises to a challenge. In every lesson, Tom answers questions and contributes to whole class and group discussions. All his class mates know they can rely on him to be kind, honest and helpful. Tom you have shone through this term as being our Platinum achiever. Well done!
Room 3 – Heather Phillips
Heather always works extremely hard and she never gives up! She is enthusiastic about everything we learn and no matter what she is doing, she always does it to the best of her ability. When challenges get tricky, she keeps smiling and perseveres. Heather is a fantastic person to have in the classroom and models really great learning behaviour to everybody.
Room 4 – Chloe Cherrington
Room 5 – Ivy Rhodes
Ivy has worked extremely hard all term, constantly striving to do her best in all subjects. She comes to school every day with a huge smile and a determination to do well. She has made excellent progress, and is continuing to strive to produce her best work even when she is learning from home. Furthermore, Ivy is a lovely, helpful member of Room 5 who sets a shining example to others. Thank you, Ivy, and well done!
Room 6 – Ellie Treacy
Ellie has dramatically improved her knowledge of decimal numbers and is now challenging herself more when tackling investigations. Ellie is also using her reasoning skills more to find solutions to problems. Thank you, Ellie!
Room 7 – Madeleine Livsey
Madeleine has been an absolute star all term. Every piece of work is carried out with enthusiasm and in detail. She always tries her best in all subjects. Assessments for the term show she is working above expectations for her age. During home schooling she has kept up her enthusiasm, she has completed all tasks set and still found time to follow her own interests. She has also been offering encouragement to others.
Well done Madeleine.
Room 8 – Dylan Bebb
Dylan is a dedicated and determined learner. He works hard in all areas of the curriculum and is a real role model for others in Year 6. He is reliable, kind and responsible. Thank you for being brilliant Dylan!
Congratulations to all our Platinum Achievers this term, well done!
You will need:
2 x paper plates (or you could cut circles from a cardboard box)
4 x lolly sticks or similar
1 x balloon
Felt tips / Sharpies / Paint
I like the idea of a relatively safe (just watch the ornaments) indoor tennis game. I also like the fact you can be as creative as you like with your rackets. You also might need to eat a few lollies before tackling this project.

It’s a great way to respond to our posts, and we do love feedback.
Preferably the positive kind 🙂 but of course we genuinely want to improve and help wherever we can, we do listen to your ideas and views and act upon them when we can.
I have such fond memories of kite building and then flying kites with my dad. Why don’t you give it a try over the Easter holidays. Beware Dads can be quite competitive!
There are lots of ideas online for how to make a kite from using paper to bin bags.
The kite made from drinking straws looks fun. I have quite a few straws at home (left over from before I switched to reusable straws) this would be a fun way to use some of them up. And I have tissue paper on the way to me for creating and Elmer.
The pasta kites look fun too if you have any pasta to spare.
Have fun, please be very careful about where you choose to fly your kite, check for cables overhead before you launch your creation! And don’t forget to send photographs.
Perhaps (with Mr Langford’s consent) we can have a kite flying afternoon when we are back at school to show off our creations.
Now this looks fun, I think I’m going to try this myself (just need to find myself a superhero if all else fails I shall try floating farm animals – of the toy kind!)
There are loads of great Easter inspired experiments under the Holiday Science section too. I’m definitely having a go at this one and my reward when complete will be a Creme Egg!
Our school will be closed for the duration of the Easter break. Our provision for the children of key workers will resume on Mon 20th April. We will contact those parents accessing the key worker provision in the week beginning 13th April, to request information about when the provision is needed etc.
During the break we will not be posting home learning tasks on the website or on Google Classroom. Everybody needs a change of pace to mark the start of the Easter break; it has been a very strange few weeks but we hope everybody can enjoy some time together and find ways to relax during this difficult time.
I would love to see your Elmers made from milk cartons. I spotted these pictures this morning, do send photographs of your own. If you don’t have tissue paper you could mix PVA glue with paint which would allow you to paint straight on to the milk carton.
They are then asking to be used in a game of Elmer Croquet!
