- Reading records should be handed in every Monday morning. Books can be changed any day of the week. We ask children to read at least 4 x per week and share their reading with an adult (discussing books, asking questions about their reading, exploring vocabulary).
- Brain Trainer (5 arithmetic) questions are sent home every day.
- Spelling homework focusing on rules and investigations is sent home on a Monday.
- Read Theory is set on a Tuesday.
- Maths homework is set on a Wednesday.
- English (grammar) homework is sent home on a Thursday.
- PE is on a Tuesday and Friday and children should come to school in their PE kit. This may be outside so your child may want to bring a tracksuit top/bottoms as school uniform jumpers/coats are not to be worn in PE lessons.

Battle of Britain Bunker trip
This week we went to the Battle of Britain Bunker in Uxbridge.
We learnt all about the Battle of Britain; had a tour of the bunker and got to explore the museum after lunch.
There was so much to do and listen to, and we learnt lots about the Battle of Britain and the bunker’s part in it. It was fascinating to be in the bunker and see the artefacts from WW2.

- Write books to share with Year 3 about their experience of WW2
- Learn about the body in Science and done some experiments
- Think about having a positive mind in PSHE (see picture)
- Problem solving in Maths (see picture)
- Elected House Captains and School Council members (see picture)
World Book Day
We had fun on World Book Day reading and sharing some of our favourite books.
We had a class quiz involving picture rounds and a book-based film soundtrack round!
Some of us came back to school in the evening to hear books being shared by teachers across the school.
Roll Up, Roll Up… Christmas is Coming!
Now that December was here, the end of term would not be the same without a Christmas Fair, a class Xmas party and of course a good old sing song and a show featuring a medley of classic Christmas hits.
And in the words of Slade themselves: ‘Merry Christmas Everybody!’
Year 6 led us in a beautifully moving Remembrance Assembly this morning.
Visit to World War 2 Bunker
As part of our learning about our locality during World War, we headed just a few miles away to Hillingdon to explore an authentic bunker used in World War 2.
After a workshop in the classroom, we headed below to explore before some photos with aircraft outside and a visit to the museum there.
Purcell School of Music Concert
We enjoyed a lovely trip to the Watford Colosseum this afternoon, to hear the Purcell School of Music’s Orchestra play. We particularly enjoyed all the Disney tracks!
Lincolnsfield Centre Visit
What a great start to our unit of work on WW2 visiting the Lincolnsfield Centre today.
