Welcome to Year 6 - Summer Term 2019
Mrs Hannaford, Miss Pickard and Mrs Boon.
The Year 6 Team
Welcome to Year 6. Our Summer Term will start with a heavy focus on the upcoming SATs tests. The children have worked incredibly hard this year to ensure that they reach their full potential and we are tremendously proud of them. After the tests, we will then focus on our writing, ensuring that we have all the evidence we need to prove what fantastic writers the children have become. After half term we will be investigating the Ancient Mayans and starting to put together our end of year play 'Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies'.
On Thursday afternoon your child will be having a PE lesson; please ensure that they have the correct clothing to participate, including tape to covering earrings and bands to tie back hair. Also please encourage them to wash their PE kit weekly. The sessions are being taken by a qualified sports coach who will ensure the children are receiving high quality PE lessons.
Homework is handed out on a Thursday and this will need to be completed and handed in by the following Tuesday. If homework/reading is not completed then a session on a Wednesday lunchtime will be compulsory to complete any outstanding work.
The Year 6 children now have access to www.IXL.com. Tasks from this website will be allocated to them each week and in addition, they will be given an arithmetic test to complete. If you have any difficulties accessing the website, the children can use the computer equipment in school to do so.
Children will have the opportunity to independently change their book every day if and when necessary, or they can read a book from home.
