The children even went to bed on time!

Happy New Year and welcome back to an exciting, action packed Spring term! The children have returned refreshed from their Christmas break and have kicked off the New Year with enthusiasm. Our new curriculum topic for the term is ‘The Winds of Change’. This topic will have a focus on the Shang Dynasty of China; this will inspire much of our work and where possible all of our learning will be linked to this. The curriculum letter and poster for this term can be found below:

Basketball Winners


A HUGE well done to the Y6 basketball team who WON a recent tournament at Coombe Dean School. They played 4 games and won them all; they scored a total of 36 points(18 baskets) and didn't concede any points! They have been invited to attend a Plymouth Raiders match in March and will play before their game - St Andrew's are in with a chance of becoming the BEST team in Plymouth!

Our topic this term is ‘Earth, Space and Beyond’. To find out more about this topic or class routines and expectations, please click on the curriculum poster and curriculum letter links below.

Dr Who Live Lessons


On Friday 23rd November, Y6 took parts in BBC's Dr Who Live Lessons. Hundreds of schools around the country took part in the live lessons - it was great fun and full of interesting information about the Solar System. 

Classroom2Moon Challenge

All children at St Andrew's Primary School took part in a 4 week challenge - to walk, cycle or scoot to school each day.

Every minute spent doing this was recorded on a challenge sheet. After 4 weeks of recording, we successfully reached the moon!
