Parent Consultation Evenings - timetable
Please check this time is suitable. If it isn't please contact me so that we can arrange an alternative date/time.
Please note that these appointments are for ten minutes only. During our last consultations the knock-on effect of slight delays earlier in the evening meant that by the end we were running over an hour late. If you miss your slot you will need to re-schedule another appointment.
Thanks - Robin Lurie

Here's a copy of our curriculum newsletter for this term, outlining what we'll be studying.
Happy New Year!
Thank you so much for the great class present and card and also to the children and parents who gave me even more presents - I am now on a get-fit regime!
The children came into school this morning raring to go, which has been really nice to see. Mrs Warhurst and Mrs Booth have both taught the class today and each commented on how lovely the children were to teach.
We're looking forward to a busy (and short) term as we lead up to the SATS. However, this term is not just about preparing the children for this test - it's also about continuing to encourage them to develop the creativity, critical thinking and independence which will stand them in such good stead for secondary school and life in general.
Please encourage your child to read daily and to do their homework to the best of their ability and on time.
I look forward to discussing their work with you at our parent teacher's meeting at the end of this month.
Hello Year 6,
You have been given two SATs practice papers to complete (Paper 1 arithmetic and Paper 2 reasoning) as homework for over the Christmas Break. Please remember the following:
(However, for more of a challenge, try to complete the papers within the specified times.)
Have a lovely break and see you in the New Year!
Miss Georgiou and Mr Lurie
Please remind your child that their homework, including holiday assignments, is an opportunity for them to show you, and us, how much they have learnt and can challenge themselves.
In assignments, we expect that a Y6 child should be able to research using at least two websites and write a text based on their notes. Copying and pasting a text and then changing some of the words is not enough of a challenge as this does not encourage reading and summarising, note-taking and sentence/text construction.
Weekly homework should be done as neatly as possible and we ask that your child shows you their work when they have finished it to demonstrate that they have completed the task appropriately.
Y6 trip to Lincolnsfields WW2 Centre, October 6th
This was a great day trip, which provided a fascinating insight into what life was like for children and adults in the 1940's. We learnt about how very different things were back then; teachers and parents were very strict (teachers could even hit children!); food was rationed; there was no TV; and you didn't throw away broken toys and torn clothes - you made do and mended! We can't even imagine what it was like to live like that AND know that at any time you could be bombed out of your home or even killed during an air raid.
One of the many highlights was listening to a WW2 veteran, Stan, talking of his experiences as a 19-year-old soldier.
The Walker children were a credit to the school. Thanks to you and to your parents for making such an effort with costumes - you looked fantastic.
I think it's fair to say that the children not only enjoyed themselves immensely but, that they also learned so much through such a hands-on experience.
Some parents have mentioned that the children are only given three evenings to do homework and have asked for this period to be extended.
We would like the system to stand as it is because it helps to prepare children for similar deadlines when they attend secondary school.
We were asked to consider giving children a book for them to write down their working out when doing MyMaths homework.
We feel that as this work is a consolidation of class work, where correct working out and presentation are closely monitored, it is up to the children and/or parents as to how this is carried out at home.
