Bastille Day French-Themed Day: Wednesday 14th July


Bonjour tout le monde! In case you didn't know, that means 'Hello everyone' in French. We had a wonderful time in Year Five learning all about the origins and cultural significance of Bastille Day. Every 14th July, there's a national day of celebration for the important role the storming of the Bastille de Sainte Antoine played in leading the people of France to overthrow King Louis XVIth, resulting in France becoming a republic. 


Below are a selection of photos taken during our French Cafe in the afternoon, where the children had the opportunity to enjoy bread (baguette/pain), pancakes (crepe), croissants and cheese (brie). 


Au revoir, et merci.



As we reach the end of one year and move onto the next, we want to say a big warm welcome to the Year Four children who will be joining us in Year Five from September. 


We've created a transition video for you to watch. You can access it by clicking on the image below:



We've also produced some really useful information for you to read with your parents, which can be found by clicking HERE.


We can't wait to meet you all properly in September and we hope you enjoy your final few days in Year Four. Oh, yeah...and have a great Summer!


Mr Billingham and Miss Chirrimar.



On Friday 2nd July we held the Key Stage Two Sports Day. Although, due to Covid restrictions we were unable to invite our parents, the children had a fantastic time. To get a flavour of the day, please visit THIS WEBPAGE to view a selection of photos from the day.

Thursday PE dates for the children in Year Five:


5B: 10th June, 24th June, 8th July

5A: 17th June, 1st July, 15th July


Also, we aim to teach PE every Monday afternoon (both classes in Year 5) so please can you send your child into school on Mondays wearing their PE kits. Thanks.




It's important that your child is completing their homework. They are sent home with spellings to learn, Maths homework is provided on Purple Mash, English writing (minimum of 30 minutes) using Writing Legends website, TT Rock Stars at least twice a week and reading at home (please ensure that your child's Reading Diaryis signed at least three times a week). 


If you have any issues with any of the above, please get in touch with the school office and we'll be happy to assist. Thank you.

~ Welcome to Year 5 ~ 
~ Academic Year 2020-21 ~


I know this is not how we planned to start our new academic year but as always we are prepared and ready for remote learning. You're all experts at this now and we all know how important it is to stay home, stay safe and help keep others safe. Fingers crossed that if we all follow the rules and the vaccine goes to plan, we can get back to normal in no time.


Below you will find links to all of our pages, we hope you like it!


If you're unable to attend school, then check out our Remote Learning pages, where you can find activities and lessons to help you to continue to learn from home.
