Dear Parents,

We hope that you and your family have enjoyed the summer break. The next two terms are jam packed with fun learning opportunities. We also welcome Mrs Heffernan to our Year 6 team.

Here you will find all the important information for this term. Please do not hesitate to book an appointment if you wish to come in and discuss anything further.

Horse Rescue Sanctuary

We are currently planning a trip to visit the Sanctuary in Uckfield to link with our work  on World War 1 and our class reader-War Horse.  We will be traveling by local transport. The date for this trip will be confirmed shorty.


Children are expected to be read daily at home and record this on the weekly home learning sheet. They can choose from the reading menu.

Home Learning

Every week, the children will bring home a folder with a weekly home learning sheet.


The weekly spellings will include both spelling  patterns and individual wordlist words.


Children will be asked to complete one page in a Maths and a SPAG book weekly to support consolidation of the learning they have completed in their lessons.

Symphony Online Maths

The children will also need to complete 30 minutes on Maths Symphony. Log in details will be sent home on Friday. 8th September.


PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has an appropriate PE kit in school all week.  This should include:  a plain coloured or white house t– shirt, shorts and trainers or plimsolls. During the winter months it should contain a separate jumper and jogging bottoms  for use in colder weather.

War Horse Performance

We are delighted to have secured tickets for the whole class to watch a matinee performance of War Horse in Brighton on Wednesday 7th February. As a class we will be completing some fund raising events to raise money for this exciting trip. We are hoping we can raise half of the total cost (tickets plus train fare).
