Important Information

Homework is set on a Monday and is due in the following Monday. Children are expected to record their reading books in their homework diary and for this to be acknowledged weekly with a signature. We also ask children  to practise their times tables and related number facts regularly. 

PE days: Monday and Friday (Children wear their PE kits for the full school day)

Library day: Monday


In DT the children have been learning about mechanisms. They have made their own pulleys for a 'Christmas Window' display, they have worked hard on ensuring their mechanisms are accurate and work well. They have decorated them beautifully to form a big Christmas window. 

Christmas Disco

Many children from Year 5 and 6 attended the Christmas Disco. DJ Ollie played lots of well-known music, which the children all sung and danced around to. Children played party games like, The Tickle Conga, Girls vs. Boys Can-Can and Musical Dab – prizes were available for the winner of each game. The children also enjoyed a well-deserved break, everyone was exhausted after all the fun! Thank you to DJ Ollie, our teachers and parent helpers for coming along.

Christmas Dinner

What a lovely lunchtime we all spent together. There was lots of festive cheer and everyone had a super time. This year, we opted for eco-crackers they were great fun but without the plastic!

Anti-bullying VR Workshops

A huge thank you to the PTA for funding a fantastic anti-bullying workshop. Every child accessed the workshop via their own virtual reality headset, and worked through various scenarios, discussing the best option for the characters they met along the way. This was a very engaging and thought-provoking activity that the children really enjoyed. We really appreciate all the fund-raising that the PTA do to enable us to give the children these wonderful opportunites.

Image Theatre - Robin Hood

We recently enjoyed another exciting visit from Image Theatre with their musical performance of ‘Robin Hood’. Everyone got involved in the fantastic songs, and some even got to try out their acting skills! Highlights included an amusing archery competition, the songs with their actions and plenty of jokes!

Christmas Bauble Workshops

On Monday 2nd December the whole school took part in Christmas Bauble making workshops. It was really exciting to paint our own baubles to hang on our Christmas trees at home. Take a look at some of our designs!

Children in Need

All the children looked fantastic in their pyjamas today. Thank you for sending in your donations for Children in Need. We all had lots of fun taking part in the Big Morning Move with Joe Wicks; it certainly warmed us up, especially those wearing onesies!. We have raised a fantastic £314.59!

Remembrance Day 2019

Cheetahs have been learning about why why still remember those who have fought in wars. As an act of remembrance we have made our own poppies out of clay, painted them and formed a wreath. This is now on display in our classroom; come down and take a look!

Welcome to Year 6

Cheetahs have a a settled start to the new academic year. We have had fun getting to know each other as well as becoming familiar with our new rules and routines. With being the eldest children in the school comes lots of responsibility, we are looking forward to our Vice and House Captain speech house assemblies as well as our Pupil Voice Group elections.
