Please help your child to complete their homework. The children will bring home numeracy or literacy on a Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday.

 

Reading

Please listen to your child read as often as possible. Studies show that children make more progress when they complete regular reading at school and at home, and we hope you will take every opportunity to read and discuss with your child a range of texts. Please write notes, comments and questions in their homework diaries. We will change books on a Monday and Thursday.  Additionally, they can log on to Bug Club and read one of the books on there and complete a comprehension task.

Spellings and Grammar

Spellings and Grammar will be given on a Monday and tested on a Friday and should be practised daily (10minutes each). Your child will bring home their spelling book and they will also be put on Seesaw each week.

 

Tables should be practised daily (15 minutes each) on TT Rockstars.  The children will be tested on their tables every Friday.

 

Tables and spellings are integral to children’s progress in literacy and numeracy.

Thank you for your support.

 

PE

As part of the National Curriculum Year 6 will be swimming this half term on a Friday afternoon and will have their PE lesson on a Thursday morning.  The children will no longer be coming to school in their PE kits; they will leave their kits in school in a labelled bag.  On a Friday the children will need to bring in their swimming kit in a labelled bag.
