This is a very important year for Class 12. As you all know the SATs are coming up very shortly (14th May 2018) and we need to be prepared. Y6 will be expected to work very hard this year and attendance in school is key.
Booster classes will be starting after half term and they will be every Tuesday and Wednesday night from 3:45pm - 4:45pm. Please ensure all children attend. It is amazing how much the booster classes can really help. There will also be lunchtime clubs to help children with reading, writing, maths and SPaG.
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. PE this term will be a Monday afternoon.
We encourage children to bring in their reading books everyday, this enables children to take part in paired reading activities and change their books when needed. We also ask parents to read with their child each night. We are also using Reading Plus, your children have their own login; there are great challenges for the children to complete.
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.
