With our residential trip nearly upon us, we are receiving a few useful enquiries at the office, and thought it would be best to give the information to all of you:

  • Please drop children off at school at normal time on Monday morning. We are hoping to actually leave between 9.45 and 10am.
  • We are aiming to return to school on Friday between 2.30 and 3pm. Do keep an eye on twitter though, as it is a long journey and we will use this to provide regular ETA updates.
  • Please could children bring with them a packed lunch, in a rucksack. The rucksack will then be used during the week for the few occasions we go off-site for water activities.
  • Do not send children with wellies – these are unsuitable for most of the activities.
  • Do make sure children have at least 2 pairs of sneakers/trainers, one of which you don’t mind getting soaking wet!
  • Please could children not bring hairdryers with them, as we will not be able to supervise their use and storage  in children’s rooms. However, adults will bring hairdryers with them, and children who need to dry their hair will be able to use these.
  • Any medicines must be signed in to the school office.
  • Children can bring up to £10 with them (in coins if possible) in a named wallet/purse. Staff will keep hold of this and provide money to children when appropriate.
  • Please send in your child’s letter by the end of the day Thursday 17th October, thank you.



This week has been very busy in Falcons!

Among other things, Year 5 have been learning about Chalk Streams both in class and at the river itself.

Meanwhile, Year 6 bravely took on Yoga Dance: they created and performed a class dance, which we filmed and played back to everyone.

It was also lovely to welcome Mrs De Zoysa back as a supply teacher.  She helped us to continue developing our Turner inspired pictures.  They are already looking impressive and will be finished next week.




Thank you to all our lovely children (and their supportive families) for keeping up with their Topic homework.  We are all enjoying the delicious treats made to avoid food waste, and are impressed with the quality of the work so far.  Only a couple of weeks to go until our homework review lesson – it’s going to be such fun!




This week we have been having great fun in English. We have been creating our own version of a report about the life cycle of a plastic bag (check out “The Magnificent Plastic Bag” on You Tube).
We discussed Tiptop (Time, Place, Topic, Person/Speaker) which we used as a guide for our paragraphs. We watched a video of David Attenborough and practised our ‘writer’s voice’.


Finally a huge Thank you for our cake which was made as part of a Homework choice!



Welcome to the new school year.  We’ve been having lots of fun getting to know each other and learning about plastics.

Last week we made our own natural plastic:



We also looked at the work of some of the ‘romantic’ poets, with a focus on the awe and wonder of nature and our natural environment. This week we wrote our own powerful poems about stormy seas – these are currently on display outside the classroom, and you are very welcome to pop in and have a look at them.
