Thanks to everyone who came to see our new mental maths program CLIC in action. For those who missed it, or those who just want to see another powerpoint example, please look for the example slideshow at the bottom of this page.


These are two games your children might like to use practise their ability to use <> and to add numbers mentally:- - Level 4 is a good place to start for average players. - Try level 7! It is only TU+TU.

For those parents wanting more detail of the new National Curriculum, the following is a good guide.

In addition to learning some specific spelling patterns, children in Years 5 and 6 also have to learn the following spellings by the end of Year 6.

Here are some of the photos from last year's trip to Goodwood, Pagham Harbour, The Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust and Ford recycling plant. We are looking forward to going here again this year in early May!

Last year we designed and made our own 'Victorian carriages'. We were learning to measure and cut accurately using a variety of different tools and materials. Watch out for our very own Indian tuk-tuks this year!

Year 5 children enjoyed a Victorian Day at Preston Manor, Brighton.

The day involved role play around the housekeeper and butler interviewing for new staff. The children all dressed as Victorians and took part in different household chores.

A great time was had by all! Here are some pictures from the trip this year.
