20/21’s Final Newsletter … issue 508

Well, we finally made it!  I’m quite surprised we managed to get to the last day without too much of a hiccup, especially when you hear about the Covid storm that seems to be brewing close by! This school year has certainly been the most difficult that I’ve ever had to navigate.  We’d already experienced a 6-month teaser in to [...]

Year 6s on Lundy…

Ok, so we've all possibly unpacked and managed to recoup some sleep now, so I thought it time to download the GoPro footage and have fun compiling a video (it takes ages so bear with me) but also to download the photos and post a blog about the Yr 6's amazing trip! Some interesting points about this trip... Tuesday... a [...]

Parent Survey – Feedback from Ali Smith, Chair of Governors.

Thank you to the 56 families who completed our online Parent Survey - reading your feedback and suggestions has been a real pleasure this week. We asked you to consider a number of questions about the school and rank your experience from 5 (excellent) to 1 (very poor).  The results were really encouraging - below we have listed the percentages [...]

Year 5’s on Lundy

I've caught up on my sleep now, so I thought some children, parents & community would like to see some of the photos of our residential. A great trip that saw the children navigating around the island, as well as cleaning, food prepping and working as a team.

Lundy… Day 1, 2 AND 3!

I dunno, I just pop to the pub for "15 burgers please" and my phone pops up with 120 emails and several texts. Technology can be a pain sometimes. What a full on trip, but brilliant trip. They're a cracking group and they are loving it! I'd post a photo of Alfred's birthday, but that takes upload time. Oh, and [...]

(Fake) SATs…

Whilst Year 6 had their final 'Fake-SATs' paper this morning, I had year 5 and went through some of the more tricky questions from yesterday's maths paper. This question actually started from a cubed number question where drawings make this a bit easier. Although, you've got to draw a cube, which is harder than you think! Here's one of the [...]
