Homework will be set weekly and will usually be maths or English based. Children may also be set a topic-related task over the half term.
Please check your child's bag and diary for details of homework we have given.
Spellings are given out on Fridays and tested the following Thursday. These spellings will include the words children are expected to know by the end of Y6. Please help your child practise these- a few minutes a day is best.
Children are expected to know all multiplication tables by the time they reach Y6. It is important that they continue to practise these regularly as part of their homework.
PE continues to be on Tuesdays, and the class will also be going swimming in the Autumn term. This will be on Mondays.
We suggest children have their PE kits in school every day.
Our Forest School session is usually on a Thursday afternoon. Children need suitable clothing and footwear for this- prepare to get muddy!
Residential to Hagg Farm: This trip will take place on 4th-6th July and should be a fantastic experience for the children! There will be a meeting for parents about the trip in the Summer term.
Y6 SATs: These national tests will take place between the 14th and 17th of May 2018. Please avoid booking any holidays or appointments during this week.
SATs clinic is now running every Thursday 3.30-4.15. All children are encouraged to attend.
WORLD BOOK DAY
After a postponement due to rain, Book Day finally went ahead on the 8th March and was a great success. The children looked fantastic in their costumes and Y6 showed great maturity in the paired reading activities with the younger children.
The children enjoyed modelling and painting Greek Style pots as part of our Spring Term Topic on Ancient Greece. We are planning a 'Greek Day' later in the term.
Children in Need
All the children in school dressed up in something spotty and brought loose change to cover a giant Pudsy. Oak Class also ran a cake sale which was very successful!
Oak and Ash had great fun on their Aztec Day. We did a range of activities during the day including Aztec food tasting, drama, Aztec sport, God's Eye weaving and learning about Aztec sacrifice! The children have also created some fantastic presentations of all they have learnt during this topic.
