Welcome to the Summer Term

The first week of the summer term hasn't quite blessed us with summer weather but the children were delighted to be back and were buzzing with anticipation; some for exciting trips and events, like the farm trip, the author visit on Monday and year group assemblies, and others for new topics and new challenges of the curriculum.  It is always lovely to see the maturity of our Year 6 children, who really focus with determination to do their best for the end of year SATs.  We want them to do well for themselves and achieve their potential but, however they do, we are so proud of how hard they are working and how ambitious they are for themselves.  

There is always lots to look forward to in the summer term for everyone, including the weather hopefully.  Welcome back!

Author Rob Biddulph in School on Monday 

We are delighted that Rob Biddulph is coming into school on Monday to talk about his books, both the writing and the illustrations.  The children will get the opportunity to create an illustration in the assembly. 

The books which you have ordered have been delivered.  They will be signed by him and given out on Monday.  There are just a few left over which will be sold at the end of the day. 

CALM Competition Time! 

In this week’s Wellbeing assembly, children learnt about the different parts of the brain and how ,when the amygdala (the brain’s emotional centre) takes over, we can 'Flip our Lids'.  We showed a video that illustrates this. 

As part of being an Attachment Aware School, we would like children to design a poster explaining our CALM Approach, which is about how we manage when we do flip our lids

Children should make their posters informative, clear and vibrant.  Two successful entries will be chosen to be displayed around our school.  Please use A4 paper. 

Good luck- we can’t wait to see them.  Please return your posters to Mrs Sephton by Friday 26th April.

Children to Wear School Uniform

All children in class today have been advised that they need to wear black school shoes, not trainers.  The school is ordering more black plimsolls and children in trainers will be asked to wear them. Jewellery, make up, including false nails and nail varnish, are not part of the school uniform. 

PE kit should be a white t-shirt, blue shorts and plimsolls or trainers.  Black or blue track suit bottoms can be worn when the weather is cold. 

Collection in The Playground

Please ensure that children do not climb on the school play equipment after school.  They are not allowed to be unsupervised on the equipment and outside of school hours. 

Dogs are not allowed on the school grounds, apart from assistance dogs.  Please leave them at home or they outside of the school gates.


Reception Trip to Bocketts Farm

Reception had a thrilling day at the farm and were keen to tell us all about the animals they saw on their return. 

Battle of the Boroughs Competition at Richmond & Kew Football Ground

Well done to Ellingham Year 5 football team!  The boys reached the final but eventually lost 2-0 despite a fantastic performance. 

Year 4 - Learning about sound

This week, Year 4 started their new science topic about sound. They went on a sound investigation around the school to evaluate the different sounds they could hear in contrasting environments. The children discovered that sounds are all around them and are created by vibrations. 

Our Fantastic Year 6 

Our year 6 children are working hard in the lead up to their SATs. All year 6 children are invited to attend morning SATs boosters and, as you can see, they are having lots of fun on the chrome books as they play targeted games to help them revise maths concepts! It is a brilliant way to get motivated for the day! 

Thank you to all the parents for ensuring their children are at school bright and early.
