Welcome to Year 6!
As we enter our final term of Year 6, the children continue to work hard and prepare for their SATs. These will begin on Monday 14th May and the timetable is as follows:
Monday 14th May: Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
Tuesday 15th May: Reading
Wednesday 16th May: Maths Arithmetic and Reasoning
Thursday 17th May: Maths Reasoning
After working so hard, the children will then have a fun filled week on their residential at Paccar Scout Camp. This will be a fantastic opportunity for the children to try a range of exciting activities such as archery, climbing, high ropes, crate stacking and so much more. There will be a class assembly on Wednesday 13th June where the children will be sharing their adventures and explaining how a growth mindset helped them throughout the week. We hope you will be able to attend.
Children will have PE on Friday afternoon. Children need to make sure they have a full PE kit in school on this day. Please make sure their PE kit has their name in it. Jewellery, including earrings, must be removed and long hair should be tied back. After half term, we will be beginning our swimming lessons and there will be more information about this closer to the time.
Children will continue to complete their homework folders for English and Maths. They are expected to complete two sides in each folder and this will be handed in by Thursday each week. Homework may be handed in early if it is completed. Children are welcome to hand in their booklets more regularly and get ahead with their homework. However, we do request that no more than two sides are completed before being marked so misconceptions can be covered in class. Children are still expected to complete reading at home and are still trying to earn their certificates for the reading challenge. The children have also all been given a times table booklet to help them improve their knowledge of multiplication facts.
