So here we are...the last two terms. How time has flown. The children have been brilliant and we have been especially impressed with how they have 'knuckled down' and focused in the run up to their mid may SAT tests.
We had a brilliant, if sometimes damp, week at camp, described by several children as 'awesome'. In addition to the photos on this page you can also find some in the parents section (under 'Other Useful Information' - 'Camp')

I hope this helps inform you of some of the routines and expectations in class.
* Reading logs are used. The children write down what they read and these are tallied up. Most are kept in school but they can be brought home. It is really important that the children continue to read to develop their vocabulary.
* When our P.E slots are confirmed will update this. However, a sensible rule of thumb is to bring in PE kit (a change of top and bottoms as well as suitable footwear) on a Monday and take it home on a Friday.
* Homework is handed out every Friday and it is expected back on Friday the following week. There will often be two pieces. Copies will be put on this site when possible and there will be spares in class if they lose them. In order to help them prepare for the workload in secondary schools I believe they should be able to meet this deadline.
* We test their times tables and spellings on a Friday. They will have some time to study in class but this is something that can be done at home. Little but often works best. Please contact me if you want advice on how best to support you child in this.
In term 3 children will have their CGP books to work through. We have also give children the reading challenge sheet attached beneath to encourage them to explore a wide range of texts. There will also be some additional home learning tasks- look forward to learning more about year 6 grammar...
