Goodbye Maples!


It's been a pleasure to teach you this last year, it has really zipped by.  Thank you so much for your generous presents and your touching words.  Below this message is a link to the song we recorded today.  Good luck in whatever you do next and wherever you go.

Here's a recording of year six performing their final song from our leaver's play. The recording doesn't really do them justice; they sounded even better live!

SATS - One week to go!


As you know, we have just four school days to go until our SATS week begins on Monday 13th May.  Think of SATS as a chance to show off all the hard work you have been doing.  I can't promise it will be easy but I know that you are well prepared and that it's not something to be worried or stressed about.


Keep working hard year six, I am proud of you all.
