As the Summer term gets well under way, enjoy reading all about some of the stunning starts that the children have experienced in the last couple of weeks. From a visit from the RNLI and beach party in Year 3, to a rebellion in Year 5, the children have certainly been hooked in to their new topics.


Year 2 children have been extremely busy this month and have worked so hard with their end of Key Stage 1 assessments. They have shown real maturity and motivation and should be very proud of themselves. I am confident that Year 6 will be the same next week as they complete their end of Key Stage 2 assessments. 


A huge thank you must go to the PTA, who yet again, organised a truly amazing Spring Ball! The atmosphere was opulent and buzzing and I am sure that lots of much needed funds were raised for the school. Thanks again for everyone who organised and supported the event.


Looking at the weather forecast it is finally due to warm up, so it is about time for summer uniform. Please can you make sure that cardigans and jumpers especially are named as there always seems to be mountain of these collected at the end of break time and lunch time. 


And that is that for this week, other than to say please make sure that you all keep a close eye on the calendar for the next few months as this term is a particularly busy one.

Year 3 Stunning Start 


The Summer term has started and the sun is shining!  What a perfect excuse for a ‘Beach Party!’


Everyone in Year 3 was invited to a beach party to kick start our ‘All at Sea’ topic.  The day was fun packed with events such as: Beach Volley Ball, a Water Relay Race Challenge, Wellie Wanging!, Skipping and a visit from the RNLI.


The RNLI gave the children an informative talk about beach and sea safety.  This included learning about the different beach safety flags as well as knowing what to do if you see danger or are in difficulty at the beach.   Mr Adkin did look good dressed as an RNLI rescuer too! 


The day ended with a delicious sea-side ice-cream.  The children are definitely looking forward to learning all about the sea and are wondering where our learning journey will take them! 

Year 4 Stunning Start 


Year 4 Stunning Start - Survival Skills
Year 4's learning journey this term is all about mountains and rivers.
For our 'Stunning Start' we ventured into the local woods, with Mr Gillinder as our guide and leader, to learn a range of skills that would enable us to survive in the great outdoors. We learned a range of skills including how to heat up food and water, how to use rope, harnesses and crampons and how to put up a tent successfully.
We finished the session with a re-cap of everything that we had learned and a well-deserved hot chocolate.


Y5 Stunning Start – “A little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing.”


On Wednesday 1st May, Year 5 held our Stunning Start to kick off this term’s theme of ‘Rebels and Outlaws’. Over the term, we will be learning about famous rule-breakers and rebels. We will be trying to decide whether it is always wrong to break the rules.


So far we have learned about Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr, Malala Yousafzai and Emmeline Pankhurst. 


However, for our Stunning Start, we thought about a whole group of people who rebelled against the rules of art, music and fashion: punks.


We were given special permission to break some school rules for the day, in order to record and film our very own punk music video for “I Fought the Law” by the Clash. 


We came to school dressed as punks, worked with Mr Roberts to record our singing, and then filmed video of ourselves around the school.


  • “It was really fun and exciting to break the rules and I am looking forward to learning more about rule-breakers.” Max
  • “I liked that we did things we wouldn’t normally be allowed to do like dancing on the tables and breaking computers. On any other day we would have been in big trouble!” Sebastien
  • “We made a video and sang ‘I Fought the Law’ by the Clash. Then we got to break stuff, which was really exciting because we will never get to do it again!” Megan
  • “It was really exciting being allowed to break the rules and cause a riot! The video was really fun to make and it was interesting learning about the filming.” Saskia
  • “I enjoyed the day because it was something we wouldn’t often do. I am proud of the video that we have made and all the work we put into it.” Eilidh


The video will hopefully be available on the school website soon!




On Monday 29th April, we competed against St Augustine in a football match. The players were mix of year 4,5 and 6 children. The children all played brilliantly and we beat St Augustine 5:2. Langton showed great sportsmanship and stayed motivated throughout the match. A huge thanks to Mrs Spackman and Mr Brazier who helped manage the team!
