Welcome back, we cannot believe it is summer term already. We hope that you had a fantastic holiday and were able to enjoy some fun activities over the Easter period. It feels weird having a summer term in Year 6 with no SATs and things already in place for the end of term such as trips. We do hope we are able to do something nice for the children over the coming months but we will have to book things as and when the guidance changes.
We will continue with a full timetable of core subjects this half term to ensure we catch up from being in lockdown. We will be starting our ‘Life is a roller-coaster’ topic we didn’t complete in spring.
In summer 2, we will focus mainly on thematic and PSHE with plenty of other year 6 activities the children will enjoy.
Children will continue to receive reading books linked to their ability from school. Reading journals will no longer be required but there will be an expectation of completing a reading comprehension every week - these will be given out on a Monday.
Children will receive 10 spellings from their class teacher which are related to their age, these will also be given out on a Thursday and tested the following Thursday.
Children will also receive weekly Maths homework on a Wednesday, this will be a reasoning booklet they would have started in class.
Our PE sessions will usually be held on a Monday and Thursday for classes 19 and 21 and Tuesday and Thursday for class 20.
Please be aware that these sessions may be flexible, therefore children need a PE kit (consisting of black shorts, a white top and pumps) in school at all times. As we get into the winter months, children will need an outdoor kit. Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days.
We hope the children have a fantastic last term at Elston, they have worked so hard this year and have taken the disruption in their stride. Fingers crossed we can have the usual end of term celebrations.

Fun Day and BBQ

Year 6 had an amazing final trip visiting Laches Wood. They tested their nerves, stepped out of their comfort zones and faced their fears! A fantastic day had by all, making memories with super team work! Proud teachers!
Year 6 have had a fantastic day for the introduction to Crime and Punishment - Guilty as Charged thematic unit. Lots of detective work to uncover who has stolen the football trophy. We had four suspects: Miss Foster, Mr Green, Mrs Webster and Mr Cosnett.
Children analysed the crime scene, completed chromatography and looked at finger printing. How could you Miss Foster!!
What a wonderful day?

We’re delighted to be able to announce the details of our open e-vents for September. Students and their parents will be able to access and experience a whole range of virtual experiences and activities which will help them make a decision about their secondary school in September 2021.
Families are encouraged to register their interest in our open events so they don’t miss out on any of the planned activities. The form takes 2 minutes to fill in and can be found here: CLICK HERE
Principal, Craig Cooling, said: “We’ve come such a long way in the past 12 months despite the pandemic and I am delighted to see that the progress we are making is being recognised. Our open events last year were a huge hit and this year we look forward to building on that success.
“Of course, we are disappointed that we can’t invite families in through the door but safety comes first for everyone. We’ve been meticulous in our planning and communications throughout the pandemic and it’s really important that we provide a safe, enjoyable experience for one of the biggest decisions that a family will make together.
“These open e-vents will give families the opportunity to make the right decision for their child’s education. We are a digitally capable school with a large community on social media, we’ll be engaging with prospective parents and utilising some of the skills that we’ve learned over lockdown to provide some fantastic content for the whole family to enjoy.”
