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 13th May and the timetable is as follows:
Monday 13th May: Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar
Tuesday 14th May: Reading
Wednesday 15th May: Maths Arithmetic and Reasoning
Thursday 16th 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.
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 also still expected to complete reading at home and their reading records will be checked every Monday. The expectation is that children read at least four times a week at home. At the beginning of the term, the children brought home letters explaining their current times table target. It is really important that they continue to focus on learning their times tables as it will help them with many other areas in maths.
