Easter Church service

Today we visited the church for our Easter service. The children all behaved so well. We sang the song “Spring Chicken”.


We’re starting our summer reading challenge. For your child to get a raffle ticket they need to have read 5 times in a week. Please could you mark this in their normal reading record and on their Summer Reading Challenge record as well. Each raffle ticket they get will be entered into a draw at the end of term. There are two Kindles to be won so the more raffle tickets they have the more chances there are to win. Good Luck!

First Week

We have continued to think about our school and class values, had lots of fun with some skittles place value, learnt about aboriginal art and experimented with using different techniques to draw patterns with dots and used thesauruses to find synonyms for our emotions which we are going to use tomorrow to write our own poems!

This afternoon, the children learnt about what app permissions are and how to change them as well as how to create a strong password.

First Day of Year 5

What a brilliant first day back! The children were fabulous!

This week, we are focusing our learning around a book called The Dot. We wrote letters to people who have encouraged us, thought about our school vision and St Barnabas, wrote about our aspirations for the year and contributed to some collaborative art that the whole school are involved in.

These are the key instant recall facts which the children will be practicing in school this term. Please speak to your child about these and practice them lots so that they feel really confident!
