This is a very important year for Class 11. As you all know the SATs are coming up very shortly (9th May 2016) and we need to be prepared. Y6 will be expected to work very hard this year and attendance in school is key.
Soon the booster classes will be every Thursday night from 3:45pm - 4:45pm. Please ensure all children attend. It is amazing how much the booster classes can really help.
Literacy homework is sent out on a Thursday and is to be returned on a Monday. MyMaths homework is set on a Monday and is to be completed by the Thursday. This gives the children plenty of time to come and see their teacher if they are struggling and need some help.
PE lessons in Y6 are subject to change, so please ensure that children have their P.E kit every day. We will be going on many trips to take part in tournaments, so it is vital that children have their kits in for training. Year 6 children will be taking part in swimming this term on a Tuesday morning so swimming kits must be brought in on a Tuesday. Swimming caps are now available to purchase from school. They are priced at £3.
We encourage children to bring in their reading books everyday, this enables children to take part in paired reading activities and change them when needed. We also ask parents to read with their child each night.
We have a commitment to Basic Skills in Year 6, everyday we plan for a range of activities to develop Numeracy and Literacy skills, aside from general Literacy and Numeracy lessons. This includes spelling strategies, guided reading, handwriting, mental maths tests, times tables, basic maths skills, speed writing, paired reading and grammar and punctuation activities.
We will be uploading pictures, videos and fantastic work produced by the children as often as possible so please keep checking this page for updates!
