"In 58% of schools where class teachers are involved in delivering languages , there has been no CPD for languages in the past year" Glad to see and are bucking the trend!


We thoroughly enjoyed the performance last but sadly had to leave early after the late start of the act 2. We do hope the little girl is ok though. Great show 😀


Year 6 Matilda trip update: after an amazing evening, we are safely back on the bus heading towards Penge. ETA 11.10pm. Apologies for the delay. Please meet us at the academy gates!


MATILDA TRIP: there’s been a delay to the second act of the show and we will most likely be late returning to school. We will update you when we know more.

Amazing HJAC. You should all be extremely proud of yourselves coming 2nd in the national lacrosse tournament. Congratulations on all your hard work.


What an amazing result. Congratulations to Mrs Kozysa for getting everyone on board and raising the profile for Science across our academy.

We loved the beach! Couldn’t get them out of the water! 🏖 🌊 🌞


In a bit of Beckenham traffic. Shouldn’t be long now. The kids are really looking forward to seeing you (and going home to wi-fi) 😊


Traffic permitting we will be back at school in 30 minutes.


Managed to get earlier crossing. Should be back between 5:30 and 6 pm. See you soon.

Spectacular end to our performance arts week with this morning's whole school production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream!


Delays at Calais. Looking like we will be arriving back at school nearer 7pm.


We have just completed the final activity in France, to pay our respects at the British cemetery. Thanks to the young British men that sacrificed their lives for our freedom we have been able to have an amazing, special week together ❤️🇬🇧🇫🇷


Homeward bound folks!


British Cemetery. Paying our respects to those who gave up their lives for us to be able to live ours. Our diverse school would not have existed otherwise.


It’s disco time here in France on our final night! 🇫🇷❤️

Year 6

Welcome to Year 6:
Aslan, Mr Tumnus and Queen Jadis

Miss Nixon and Mr George are teaching in Queen Jadis Class this year, whilst Mr Christodoulou is the class teacher in Aslan and Miss Rowe is the teacher in Mr Tumnus Class.

This year, as you may well know, the children will sit their SATs examinations in May 2018, which will be the last time the old curriculum will be used to assess the children’s attainment and progress. It is imperative that you support your child with their learning this year and that all the children in year 6 are reading, for pleasure, for at least 30 minutes a day. It is recommended that parents take an active role in facilitating this and listen to their children read as often as possible to ensure they are understanding the texts they are reading. There is an amazing new library in Penge, stocked with a fantastic range of children's books. Please do go and visit.

After Christmas the children will receive SATs revision books to support their literacy and numeracy preparation. They would greatly benefit from any support they can get at home during this time as the build up to the SATs tests can be quite a stressful time for them. The children will receive weekly music lessons with our specialist music teacher, Miss WJ, which will take place on Thursday mornings for an hour.

PE lessons will take place on a Tuesday and Thursday and children will be expected to have their full Harris Primary PE kits with them at all times, which they can leave at school.

On the left you will see links to the 'Boot Camp' programs that the Year 6 children are signed up to. 


Topics we cover in Year 6 are below.
