A very warm welcome to our Laurel page. Here you'll find termly updates of our curriculum projects, what we've been up to, how we're living out our school values and striving to be the change we want to see in the world!

This autumn term is especially exciting because we have a beautifully redecorated classroom and fabulous lockers! 

Over this academic year, we will be participating in the Archbishops Young Leaders' Scheme - this is our second year doing this, and it truly encourages our young people to think about -and act upon-the realisation that they can change the world NOW!

Early in October, we will be going on our annual residential to Hindleap Warren, where muddy adventures and personal growth awaits!

Our project work looks at space and its exploration - particularly the ethical and moral issues linked to space travel. After half-term, we will link this learning to our history project on the Maya Civilisation and explore the impact of colonisation on an indigenous people.

For current Laurels, PE is on Monday and Friday and Home Learning is set on Friday and will be reviewed in class the following Friday.

Thank you and enjoy!

I'm going to attach a copy of the calculation policy for St. Mark's (and indeed the whole locality) - it is on the site but, this way, you don't have to hunt for it - so parents and carers can see what we do (it's how they learnt it at school when you get to Year 5 and 6). Also, the SATS revision document a bit lower down on the page has links to top tips on different areas of Maths.

Below are a link to a SATS revision timetable that begins April 9th. It offers links to explanations that will be of use in the revision process. Additionally, I have attached copies of the Easter revision homework and answer sheets that your child will be given hard copies of.

Good luck!
