Ellingham Do-si-do! 

Miss Peart took a group of year 2 and year 6 children to represent Ellingham at the Kingston Country Dance Festival this week. The children performed a number of traditional routines including Galopede, Donkey Riding and Farmer’s Jig. Despite the 29 degree heat, the children all worked so hard, had lots of fun and even got their parents up to join in with The Circassian Circle!

Nursery Update: Before and After Cleaning

The latest update:  the nursery outside area has been jet-washed ready for the next instalment.  We will be organising a painting day next week.

Please Be Respectful of Our Neighbours

We really want to have the best relationship with our neighbours and you can help by ensuring that litter goes into a bin or home with you and that children do not climb the fences or go into the gardens.  Thank you for your support with this.  

International and Cultural Week - 8th July

If you speak another language and/or come from another country and you would like to participate, please let us know -  We would love for children to have a traditional tale from your country read to them or share or make a typical food item so if you would like to join us in school, please get in contact.  

Impact of Low Attendance

The school curriculum and lessons are planned so that each small step of learning creates a solid foundation for greater understanding and for the children to make the best progress possible.  Every missed day of school creates gaps in children's understanding and the cumulative effect can become a barrier for children to achieve their potential.  Please ensure that your child is in school.  All holidays are unauthorised.


Reception Welcome Ladybirds 

There was huge excitement in Reception this morning when someone notice our ladybird larvae had transformed into ladybirds! We are now hoping they will eat the white fly aphids on Mrs Peters' plant as this is what would happen in nature. 

Year 2 Designers

In DT this week, Year 2 have started to decorate their planters. They are already looking amazing, keep your eyes peeled for the finished product!  

Year 3 Gladiators

This week Year 3 had a 'Gladiator' experience where they performed some drama as apart of their English topic based on the book Roman Diary the Journal of Iliona a Young Slave. 

Year 4 Learn about Hinduism 

Year 4 travelled into Wimbledon to visit the Shree Ghanapathy Hindu Temple this week. It was a wonderful experience and the children were able to ask many questions connected to their learning. The guide was able to inform us all about the temple's history as she helped to build it during the summer holidays of 1981 with her whole family. Once the children had finished exploring the worship room, they moved into the meditation room. Here, we were informed that the temple holds all religions in high regard and the people who attend, use this space to celebrate Christmas, Ramadan, Hanukkah and many more celebrations. 

A Taste of Secondary Life for Year 5

This Thursday, Year 5  had a taster of what life would be like in a secondary school. We spent the day at Chessington School and had a History, Spanish, Art, Food Technology and PE lesson. We arrived at 9am and started by being lead through the school to our first lesson - History- which was all about Pompeii. Throughout the day, we got to learn snippets of another language, make mini pizzas, learn about Pompeii and create beetle pictures. We all had so much fun at Chessington school. 

At the end of the day, there was an assembly hosted by the Headteacher, where lots of people were awarded certificates for our positive behaviour during the day.  It was the best trip ever!

The Court of Year 6

As part of Year 6's Crime and Punishment topic in History, they were visited by two of the magistrates from Lavender Hill Court this week. They put their acting skills to the test by taking part in a mock trial! It was a really informative morning and the children asked fantastic questions.
