The children have had a fantastic start to the Spring Term in Year 6 and we look forward to learning about more exciting things during Cycle 3.
In Year 6, the uniform consists of the school’s blazer, jumper, tie, a white shirt, black trousers or skirt and black school shoes. Please ensure that your child wears the correct uniform each day for school and that their name is clearly labelled on each of the items.
For P.E., pupils are required to wear a white t-shirt, black shirts and black pumps or black trainers.
Maths and Spelling homework will continue to be given out every Friday and should be completed and handed back to the Year 6 teachers by the following Wednesday. Pupils will be provided with a weekly spelling list which they are required to learn by end of the week, in preparation for a spelling test every Friday.
In the lead up to the end of Key Stage 2 examinations, some children may be provided with additional activities to complete at home to support their learning.
Your child may be invited to attend additional booster sessions in preparation for the end of Key Stage 2 tests. These will take place in the morning prior to school commencing and your child will be informed in advance.
The children will continue to have the opportunity to select a reading book from the class library, which they are then required to read to you each night for approximately 15-20 minutes. Just a reminder to please sign your child’s diary each evening to confirm that you have listened to them read.
Pupils are expected to demonstrate exemplary behaviour and act as role models for the rest of the school. Dojo points will be awarded to pupils for behaviour which demonstrates the school’s values of ‘Learn, Respect and Succeed’. Should pupils earn 35 Dojo points by the end of the week, they will be rewarded with Dojo Treat on a Friday afternoon.
Your children will have P.E. on a Tuesday and Thursday. This year, we have sports coaches who are coming into the school to teach the children a variety of new skills during P.E. lessons! Please ensure that your child has their full P.E. kit with them for these lessons.
