Weekly News


The children had a very busy week. They all have written very spooky indeed horror stories (I had to stop every so often when reading them as I was getting goose bumps). As homework this week, they have been asked to design the front cover of our class horror stories' book. I am looking forward to seeing them all on Wednesday. They were also set a grammar task. This week, no spelling were set as I would like to see how the children have retained the words they learnt since September.

On Monday 19th of February afternoon, we are going to a Lent workshop by coach. We would need 2 helpers to make the most of the activities. Please let me know if you can help.

Many thanks for all your support,

Mrs Miquel



The children had very informative (even impressive for some!) fact files on their chosen scientist and new material. We shared them yesterday and discussed them as a class. We all learnt a lot of facts (including me!) and had lots of positive comments for each other’s.

On Monday and today, class five have been creating a story for Radio 2 Chris Evans 500 words:

Should your child wish to enter (and I hope some will as I have seen/read amazing stories demonstrating the advice/suggestions from the live lessons), they will need to finish their stories and submit it at home. N.B. Only creativity and imagination count; spellings, punctuation and grammar can be forgotten!

Many thanks for your support,

Mrs Miquel

Hanukkah 2017


It was a pleasure to welcome Mr and Mrs Rosenfeld today (18th December). They spoke to both Year 5 and 6 about the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. They explained about the origins and meaning of the festival, shared doughnuts and  the children played with dreidels and lit the menorah. Photos to follow . . .
