Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome back - and it has been so lovely to see the class back in person again this week! They have been really pleased to see each other and everyone has settled back into routines really well. As you will know from the newsletter, we have had a very exciting Science week: focusing upon NASAs recent Mars mission and the Perseverance Rover. Please see the link below to our SWAY diary: we hope that you enjoy it!


Next week, we will be continuing our work on 'The Silver Sword', looking at character portraits and summarising the narrative so far. We shall also have a writing assessment on Friday. In Maths, we will be looking at ratio and scale factors and continuing our work on volume. We shall also be focusing upon what life was like in Warsaw during WWII in History and thinking about nationality in our Geography lessons.


Have a really good weekend, and enjoy the sunshine!

My Favourite Poem- Jabberwocky

Still image for this video
This is a poem by Lewis Carroll, who liked to write in this particular "nonsense" style. I hope you enjoy the poem, and I look forward to seeing what your favourite poems are!

Miss Kish

Hello Shropshire,


I’m Miss Kish, and I can’t wait to get to know you all next year! This will be my second year at Southborough, and I’m looking forward to being able to (hopefully) teach for a full year with no interruptions, unlike this past year which has been so bizarre for everyone. I love being a teacher, because I love sharing knowledge and also continuing to learn myself, as well as encouraging you all to love learning too! My favourite subjects are history, geography and languages; I studied French and Italian at university, as well as a bit of German and I’m teaching myself Spanish at the moment too. One thing you’ll notice about me is that I will often go off on a linguistic tangent and teach about the history of words! Some other interesting things about me: I love horses and used to play an equestrian sport called polocrosse; I’m a bit Harry Potter mad and I love old, cheesy music.


I’m so looking forward to getting to know you all and find out your hobbies and interests too,

Speak soon!


Miss Kish, your new teacher
