Hello from the Year 6 team!
We hope this newsletter finds you well. We’ve already had a highly successful couple of weeks and can’t wait to see what the rest of the term brings!
Spelling activities are handed out on a Thursday and due in Thursday the following week where we will mark them in class.
Reading records are checked on a Monday where there should be evidence of at least three reads from the week before. Reading regularly and enjoying what you are reading is hugely important – if you ever need a book recommendation, please come and find us!
Times tables should be practised at home – this is especially important for the run up to SATs! Practise sheets are available on the school website.
PE is on a Wednesday afternoon. Thank you to all of the children who have already come in with a full PE kit. As the days get cooler, please feel free to bring in a tracksuit in order to keep warm.
Swimming will start in the summer term, we’ll write to you with more information closer to the time.
As you will no doubt be aware, Year 6 is a big year for the children in terms of taking their SATs. We have been so impressed at how quickly the children have settled in already and how positively they have responded to the increased challenge. This year SATs week commences on the week beginning 13th May 2019. These tests are an important part of your child’s primary school career and new secondary school transfer. As a result of this, we ask that no holidays are taken during term time and that absences are kept to a minimum. If you or your child have any worries, concerns or questions regarding the exams, please feel free to talk to any member of the Year 6 staff.
Thank you, as always, for your ongoing support, Mrs Macleod and Ms Babiy (Year 6 class teachers)
