Harry Potter Day – Year 5 and 6

On Monday 11th December Year 5 and Year 6 are having a Harry Potter day, where they will take part in a variety of themed activities linked to the film/book series.  The children are invited to come dressed up in clothes linked to Harry Potter if they choose; please note there is no expectation for you to purchase a costume for this themed day.

When we visit Harry Potter Studios, it will be the ‘Hogwarts in the snow’ experience.  As part of our themed day, we would like to watch the film ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ as it has a number of winter snow scenes.  The film rating is 12A – if you would NOT consent to your child watching this film, please let your child’s crew leader know as soon as possible so alternative plans can be made.

Thank you

The Year 5 and Year 6 Staff Team

Y5/6 Celebration of Learning

On Monday 4th December at 5pm we would like to invite you to join us in the hall for our celebration of learning for our expedition – ‘How can we help our planet survive?’

You will have the opportunity to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea whilst you look at your child’s expedition work, listen to your child read you their speech about saving endangered animals and view their final product.

We can not wait to share their amazing framed artwork with you. This will be available for you to take home on the night; all we ask is that you bring some change to throw in to our donation buckets. All money raised will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund to support endangered animals.

We look forward to seeing you at this event.

Is your child using the latest version of Timetables Rockstars?

I have been notified by TTRS (Maths Circle) that many children are using out-of-date versions of the game which may not have the new functionalities.

It’s important that they use the latest versions of the app and and website to ensure they receive the most secure, feature-rich and enjoyable experience of Times Tables Rock Stars. Some of the versions are so far behind that they’re missing out on key updates. 


If using the website at home, please ask parents to visit to load the latest version in their device’s browser. Otherwise please to update the Times Tables Rock Stars app from the app store.

Our children have spent the week leading up to Armistice day learning about the reason we wear the red poppy and have produced these stunning examples to display in our corridors.

A beautiful and fitting tribute to the fallen.
