Celebration of Work

13/10/2017 - We would like to say a huge well done to all who passed their 11+ this week. For those who were less fortunate, I know you will do well wherever you choose to go to school and that you will be a credit to our school and your next. 

​This week, we are continuing our work on Electricity and we are also having great fun reading the 'Hound of the Baskervilles' by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. We are also continuing our focus on the four operations in maths, honing and perfecting our accuracy and care with both formal and mental calculations. 

Next week we are looking forward to the visit of some local magistrates to help us to learn about their important role. This has always been a popular event over the last few years at South Borough and I am sure that the children will gain a lot from the visit. 

I would also like to remind you that the applications for secondary school need to be in by the end of this month. You should have already had a booklet explaining how to apply but, should you need another, we do have a limited number of spare booklets. 


29/09/2017 - Well the past two weeks have seen year 6 working hard on their first set of practice SATs tests, but it has not all been stressful. We have also been having some fun with Spanish (learning about the names for things in and around the classroom) as well as learning all about static electricity with a Van de Graf machine, balloons and a lot of confetti!

The children have been reminded that their homework projects are due in in a couple of weeks time and I am looking forward to seeing what I am sure will be some amazing inventions which will change the world!


15/09/2017 - The new year 6s are currently looking at place value and writing descriptions, as well as getting used to the new pace of work. Please help your children to keep reading and practice their spellings regularly. Thank you for your support.
