Year 6 Homework
In preparation for high school, children in Year 6 will continue to receive two pieces of homework every Wednesday.
I will be sending activities linked to a variety of topics e.g. science, French, maths, English, geography and history.
Peace Garden activities Wednesday 17th May
All children in Year 6 will need to come to school in waterproofs and wellies in the morning, as we are helping in the garden.
Children need to bring their uniforms, for the afternoon session in school.
Well done to all Year 6 on their amazing attitudes last week, we were all so proud of them!
We really enjoyed sharing our breakfasts together and Year 6 definitely deserved their day of relaxation on Friday!
A special well done to James, who was poorly last week and completed his final test today!
The maths sessions were well attended this week. I offer a maths club twice a week, on Monday 3:30-4:30pm and then again on a Wednesday lunchtime.
Please encourage your child to come along to either or both sessions, they are proving very valuable and we spend considerable time working on 'Reasoning' skills within these sessions.

Monday 27th February ....... Pyjama Day for World Book Week.
All children to wear pyjamas and bring in their favourite book to read at different times through the day.
SATs questions ------Friday 3rd February.
Year 6 are working really well through SATs style questions in the classroom. The children will all be bringing home folders today containing booklets from recent practice papers. We have worked very hard in the classroom working through all of the questions together.
It is optional, but if you get chance, please ask your child to have a go at 'coaching' you with some methods, particularly with the maths paper. I have also included the recent SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) and comprehension papers, if you have a free 20 mins, it would be beneficial to talk through a couple of questions with your child, as often as you can manage.
Many thanks for your continued support.
SATs Revision Guides
Thanks to all of you who returned slips and money for revision guides, the office staff will proceed with the order. I'm hoping the guides will be with us before half-term. But we keep our fingers crossed and wait and see.
