Welcome to the Upper Band

We've made it to Term 4!

 Below, you will find the general overview of this term for Upper Band. This document will provide you with an idea of what your child will be learning throughout this term while also providing you with the key dates and moments of joy that are coming up. As discussed in parliament, we will look forward to seeing your children back in school on March 8th 2021.


This term will require several resources:

  • Upper Band will need junk modelling to build their Saxon Village in week 2 (home) and will also need cardboard in week 5 (school) to make a Viking shield.
  • It is also our School’s Science week in week 2. The list of resources needed can be found on the right and also a link to the experiments in case you would like to know more details about the items. If your child is eligible for free school meals and is learning at home full-time, we will be providing them with a pack that will be available from the school office on Monday 1st March. 


The zoom details for the school assemblies and workshops remain the same as before.
