Spring Term

Dear parents, welcome back to 2019! Despite the inevitable post-Christmas blues and chilly weather, there is a lot to get excited about this term. The children will be embarking on a daring mission to the Antarctic with Ernest Shackleton and his legendary expedition. We will be reading the modern retelling of this story by William Grill, which will culminate in a visit and workshop with the author in March. If you wish to investigate our topic further then the complete Topic Web can be downloaded below. 

Our first week back will be dedicated to free writing and hopefully the children have thought about what they may wish to write about during their time away.

Our timetable remains unchanged, with P.E. kits being required to be in school all week and Reading Diaries on a Friday (to be checked).  

Despite Mrs Mason departing to have a baby, their singing and music instruction will continue seamlessly as Mrs Moon takes over on a Tuesday afternoon. The Portsmouth football coaches will also return this term. 

Finally, I have been extremely buoyed by the amount of reading that has taken place over the Christmas holiday and I sincerely hope that this is sustained over the coming weeks and months. 

Happy New Year. 

Mr. Russell

AUTUMN TERM 2018:

Dear Parents,

Welcome back! I hope that you all had a restful and enjoyable summer. Firstly, if you would like an overview of our Topic this term, please take a moment to look at the Topic Web below. This outlines the curriculum links, aims and detail of our learning this term. Beneath it, you should also find our timetable for a normal week.

Our first point of contact will be on Monday 10th September when I will be holding a Parent Meeting in Cedar classroom at 3:30pm. The purpose of this is to set out my expectations for home learning, spelling and reading over the course of the next year. If you aren’t able to attend, then you are welcome to come and see me separately.

The Autumn term is vitally important for the children in Year 5 and 6, given the sheer volume of work that is expected of them. I will do my very best, however, to ensure that this term (and indeed, the whole year) is as interesting and inspiring as possible. If you have any immediate concerns or a problem that arises during the course of the next few months, then my door is always open.

-Mr Russell
