Week ending: 21.09.18


Zebra Class have had another outstanding week, They've produced lovely work, supported younger children, and generally been excellent role models for the rest of the school.


The battle for the Dojo Champion has heated up, with Anisha in the lead, Ben in second and Phoebe third, although all could change next week! The spellings for this week are:













The class will be tested every Wednesday. Your child will also be asking you to sign their reading record at least 3 times a week, so please help them with this. Spellings, reading and maths done out of school are all rewarded, so your support is greatly appreciated.


Week ending: 14.09.18


Zebra Class have had an outstanding start to the year! They have worked incredibly hard, showing high quality writing and solid mathematical knowledge, and are proving themselves to be excellent role models for the rest of the school. Well done Zebras!


Next week, the battle for the Dojo Champion will continue, with the children looking to rack up reading comments, strong spelling scores, Times Table Rockstar coins, MyMaths practice and many in-school accolades to boost their chances of winning a prize at the end of the term. We will be continuning our work on slavery, place value and reading Goodnight Mr Tom, ahead of us studying it next term.


Thanks for being incredible Zebras. Great rewards are heading your way.

Welcome to Zebra Class


A warm welcome to year 6 from me. I’m looking forward to a brilliant year teaching the Zebras; getting to know them all, their parents too, and working with everyone to provide them with a positive, fun and rewarding learning experience.


Year 6 is an important year and one in which we will strive to achieve the best we can. Your support, as parents, with further work – reading, times table practice etc – will be crucial, as will the role of teachers to ensure children maximise learning opportunities, and I look forward to working with children, parents and the school to balance hard work with fun, challenging activities with wider world experiences.


I have the pleasure of working with Mrs G (in Zebra) and Mrs Beard (in Giraffe (the other Year 6 class) who are both highly experienced and looking forward to the new academic year.



Children need to read at least three times a week and record it in their reading record (which they bring in everyday). Parents are encouraged to sign these to confirm the reading, and to read with children where possible (the children are rewarded for their efforts weekly).



These will be sent home every week and tested every Wednesday.


Swimming / P.E:

Swimming takes place on Monday afternoons (for terms 1, 5 and 6 only – it does not take place in terms 2, 3 and 4). Girls need a one piece swimming costume and boys need trunks - don't forget your towel as well.


P.E. is on a Wednesday, and as many activities will take place on the field, it is strongly advised that children have trainers to wear. Kit is to stay in school (unless really dirty) and taken home / washed at the end of each term. Long hair will need to be tied back. Earrings will need to be removed for both PE and swimming.



It is very important that children are in school on time. Your support with this is greatly appreciated.


Please don't hesitate to come and speak to me at the end of the school day, if you need to pass on information about your child or have any questions.


I’m really looking forward to getting to know you all, and to an exciting year ahead!


Best wishes,


Mr Craig
