Here is the latest Year newsletter with information about our topics and areas of study for the next half-term.
Bikeability is a national cycle training programme supported and funded by the Department for Transport. The course builds the skills and confidence of children who can already ride. Bikeability can not only make children better cyclists - potentially for the rest of their lives - but can help with general confidence and independent thinking. We have been lucky this week to have had Bikeability training within our school. The training was delivered by qualified, professional, DBS-checked National Standard Instructors. Our children listened very well and were a credit to the whole school. Well done!
European Day of Languages.
On Friday 30th September, we celebrated European Day of Languages. 6B learned all about Scotland and Ireland - where Gaelic is spoken. We found out some fascinating facts, learned a few greetings, tasted food from both countries (including a porridge taste challenge) and looked at the work of two poets: Seamus Heaney from Ireland and Robert Burns from Scotland.
Hello and welcome back to the new school year - we hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

Year 5 & 6 Newsletter.
Well done to our members of Year 6 who have all successfully completed their Level 1 and Level 2 courses in Bikeability.
Bikeability is Cycling Proficiency for the 21st Century. It develops children's skills for cycling on single lane roads with simple junctions and moderate traffic. We have learned about making observations, maintaining riding positions, communicating intentions, and understanding priorities on the road.
The instructors were very pleased with the children's behaviour and everyone who participated passed the course.
Our two Art Ambassadors, Connor and Maissa, aren't just fabulous artists. They are available to help and advise other pupils in Year 6 but right through the school too.
6B Junior Play Leaders.
Our Junior Play Leaders are a fantastic help at dinnertimes. They work in Key Stage 1 to ensure younger pupils have a good lunch break - setting up games, refereeing matches & helping with taking turns or deciding what to play. We are really grateful for you taking your own time to help others. It's just one of the ways we are proud of you.
6B Pupil Voice Representatives.
A difficult vote because we had some super candidates but we selected Jasmine and Archie. Their role is to represent the ideas and views of the children in school.
Sports and Health Ambassadors.
We are grateful to Sebastian, Isabella, Bruno and Lola (plus Cole and Pixie from 6M) for all the work they do through the year: helping organise sporting events in and out of school. They are brilliant role models because they are such good team players too.
