Behaviour

In year six good behaviour and being role models for the rest of the school is extremely important. As a class, we have created our own charter which all the children have signed to say they agree to.

 

 

SATs DATES

SATs 2020- The children are expected to sit their SATS in the week beginning 11th May 2020

 

 Date  Paper

 Wednesday 13th May 2019 Maths paper 1 and Maths paper 2  
 Thursday 14th May 2019 Maths paper 3  

 

Please note that throughout the year we have to collect evidence to inform our teacher assessments for writing, maths, reading and science.

Boostering

This half term, after-school booster sessions will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:15pm to 4pm.

All of the adults are boostering the children on SPAG, Reading and Mathematics. 

'Flexi-boosters' also take place on a daily basis during school time in afternoons to assist the children in their learning. Children are also boostered in assembly times and some children are invited for booster in a morning from 8:30am.

Homework

We must stress the importance of completing ALL the homework we ask your child to complete.

1. All children should read daily. Even if your child is a confident reader, they should be reading independently to encourage a love of books and a greater understanding of the written word. Children should record their daily reading in their reading record. There are five spaces in the book for each week. If children are not reading regularly then they will be asked to attend a reading catch up session one playtime a week.

2. All children will receive weekly spellings. These will be usually be set on a Monday and tested the following Monday and are  linked to past spellings for the SATs and spelling patterns for year six. This is now an important part of the new spelling, punctuation and grammar test (SPAG) (worth 20 marks out of 70 in the test).

3. Each Friday, the children will receive a piece of literacy and numeracy homework, which will be due to be handed in on the following Wednesday. Any children who do not complete the homework on time will do so during Wednesday playtime instead.

Times Tables Rockstars

 

All children now have a log on for Time Tables Rockstars. This is a multiplication skills online game that we have invested in to increase recall of up to 12x table. We create regular battles with other year groups and amongst Year 6 for this. Please support children playing at home. Children have their log in details in their reading diaries if they forget them. 

Physical Education (PE)

 PE is on Wednesday afternoons each week with Mrs Aspinall.

At all times your child will need an indoor and outdoor PE kit in school.

Indoor PE kit is a white T-shirt, dark shorts (black or navy blue) and trainers or plimsolls.

Outdoor PE kit is a white T-shirt, dark jogging bottoms (black or navy blue), dark sweatshirt and trainers. Jewellery must not be worn on PE days.

If your child can not take part in PE for medical reasons a letter should be sent to Mrs Aspinall.

Also on Wednesdays your child will be taught a one hour session on the Holocaust by Mrs Younger. This is extremely important as it links to the trips we are going on in the Autumn term.
