Autumn Term 2019
Welcome to all children in your final year of Primary Education. The year will be full of interesting and engaging lessons with an increased desire on both quality and quantity of work. We expect our students to be well-mannered, organised and kind. Throughout the year we embrace our local area by visiting areas such as Charmouth and Carey Camp. We are looking forward to an action packed year of academic and personal progression. Mrs Restorick and Mr Barter.
Avalanche Church visit 12th September
To initiate our Portland topic; the entire year group walked energetically to Avalanche Church. Rev. Gomm kindly delivered a fascinating speech to the year children on the tragic events that took place September 11th, 1877. The students then had a chance to observe and analyse the many artefacts around the church. Ranging from artefacts recovered from the ship; donations upon the walls and artwork from New Zealand. Please ask your children to retell the captivating and dramatic scenes that took place 12 miles off Portland Bill.
Spring Term 2019
The new year is upon us and the children are back with a spring in their step. The Spring Term is the shortest of the year and therefore the children will be expected to soak up as much information as possible. The children have made a superb start to their time in year 6 and we now expect them to push on and challenge themselves further.
Our topic for the Spring Term will focus on Events of WW2. If you know anyone who has experience or stories of the Second World War we would be particularly keen to hear from you. First hand accounts provide the child with such engaging experiences that it will hugely benefit their learning. Please contact the school if you are able to help. Thank you
