Coffee Afternoon for Parents of Children with SEND - 2.15, Thursday, 9th May 

Save the dates


Inspiring Art and Writing - Author Rob Biddulph 

The children had a wonderful time in their assembly with Rod Biddulph.  He told them how he had always loved drawing and practised and practised so it could be his career, which eventually led him to become an author and illustrator.  Every child in assembly drew an illustration of a panda and every one of them experienced success as an artist due to Rod's great instructions.  Almost 100 books were sold and signed by the author. 

Rod has a number of 'draw with Rod' videos on youtube.

Reception - We are authors!

Reception have been inspired by last week's visit by Rob Biddulph to become authors. Here we are busy creating our own books to read to our friends.


If your job involves the use of maths in any way, we would like to invite you in to talk to the children so that they can see just how purposeful maths is in a career.  We know that maths comes into many jobs - weighing and measuring in catering or building; shapes and angles in architecture or interior design - not just those that are mostly about numbers - accountancy, mechanical engineers, economists.  We would love to welcome you in.  

Ellingham Summer Fair - Saturday29th June

Put the date in your diary for Ellingham's Summer Fair.  It will feature stalls, bouncy castles and with music from the local DJ. 

The success of our summer fair is the result of our whole community working together so watch out for information from your class representative and sign up to help out.  Every Little Helps.


Nursery - People who help us

This half term we are learning about people who help us. So far we have learnt about the police and dentists. We drew some picture of a police officer and used some toothbrushes and toothpaste to clean some very large teeth. 

Our role play area is a doctors surgery and the children have been working to make each other feel better. Over the next few weeks we will be learning about doctors and nurses, firefighters and postal workers. 


If you happen to work in any of these professions and would be willing to come and talk to the nursery children, please contact Mrs Kingshott, the nursery teacher.  

Nursery - Gardeners 

Over the last week nursery have been taking part in the simple 'Growing to love tomatoes' campaign. We were sent all the equipment we needed and last week we planted our seeds.  The children were delighted to see that this week they have started to grow. To help them on their way, we watered and added some plant food to help them. 

Year 2 Spread your wings

Year 2 recently looked after their very own caterpillars and observed how they changed over time as they grew and transformed into beautiful butterflies. The children enjoyed watching this metamorphosis happen and couldn't quite believe the transformation!

Year 2 Cress - the results are in!


Year 2 recently planted some cress seeds and removed one of the elements needed for plants to grow as an experiment.

This week they checked on the seeds and were shocked to find that the seeds without sunlight still grew, although no-one would want to eat them! Only the ones with water grew though and we now know this helps seeds to germinate along with warmth.

Year 2 Flying the flag and Creating Art!


Year 2 learnt the history of the Union Jack and got creative as they built their very own mini flag.  They also showed their creativity with their natural collages. 

Year 2 Landmark Collage

Year 2 got creative this week as they used collage to create famous UK landmarks. Take a look at their work and see if you can work out the landmarks they chose.

Preparing for the Country Dancing Festival


Year 2 and 6 have been busy preparing for the upcoming Country Dance festival by learning a number of traditional routines. Year 2 were even lucky enough to practice in the sunshine this week!

Year 3 Science

Year 3 placed a white rose into different coloured liquids and observed how the colouring affected the petals of the flower.  A really fun way to learn about the way water is transported through plants. 

Year 3 Sandwich making

In DT Year 3 designed and made their own healthy sandwiches. We learnt the claw and bridge cutting techniques along with how to spread safely and effectively. Of course, we then ate our delicious snack! 

Year 4 Cooking at Chessington School

On Monday Year 4 went over to use Chessington School’s kitchen. The children weighed and measured their ingredients to create an extra large, communal cake. They had set ourselves the target of  creating a cake that resembled the main character from our class book - a robot called Roz. See if you think they achieved it.

Year 4 Assembly

On Friday  26th March,  Year 4 took us on a journey through the science of sound and around the geography of rivers.  The families and school were so impressed with their knowledge and their beautiful singing.  The children had clearly worked really hard learning their lines and projecting their voices with confidence so every word could be heard.  They were fabulous!


Thank you to all the parents with their help learning their lines and to the Year 4 team for directing the wonderful assembly.


Year 6 Take Heart

This week, Year 6 have been finding out how the human heart works. The children constructed detailed models out of plasticine to help them identify the different parts and their functions, such as the four chambers and valves! We learnt that blue represents the deoxygenated blood and red represents the oxygenated blood. 

They demonstrated excellent team work and used fantastic scientific vocabulary throughout their discussions.
