Last Calshot Update Information Letter: Download NOW!

Calshot is here!! We are looking forward to a fantastic week ahead where we will be working on our team building skills, boosting our self esteem and pushing ourselves to take on challenges that we will be proud of! We’ll also be doing some scientific and geographical learning on our terrific trawling and we know the children will be even more inspired to care for the ocean and its environment when they get back from this trip.

Our pupils who are staying at St James will be joining Miss Brennan and Mr Slattery in Year 4 where they will undertake some Maths and English activities which we have left for them. They also have some exciting WWI workshops planned and we know Year 4 will be delighted to have some extra knowledgeable helpers around and they will really look after them for us.

General Information:

Please come to school at normal time on Monday as we will be leaving soon after the start of school. Children do not need a packed lunch as we will be there in good time for our first experience of a Calshot lunch canteen!

Please note that a single sheet, duvet cover and pillowcase OR a sleeping bag need to be added to the kit list.

Outdoor PE will be on Tuesday afternoons when we will generally be going to Kings Park together with Year 5. Please ensure that suitable kit, including tracksuit bottoms, is in school so that we can all participate fully.

Indoor PE will usually now be on Wednesdays.


New homework has been issued this week with a range of activities for children to choose from. MyMaths will relate as much as possible to the topics we will be covering this term although there may be some flexibility according to the results of our assessments so that we are responding to the needs of the children’s learning. Just a reminder that last week we were looking at mean, mode, median and range so you may wish to tackle those maths tasks on MyMaths this week.

Key dates :

Calshot trip – Monday 19th – Friday 23rd November

Candlelight Carol Service in St James’ Church – Tuesday 18th December – 7pm.


Any questions, please do catch us in the playground.
