Welcome to Year 6. I’m excited about the opportunity to get to know you and your child and I’m looking forward to a happy and productive school year.
To help the year run smoothly there are a few things that I feel would be helpful for you to know.
On Wednesday and Friday your child be participating in P.E. sessions which will be outside where possible. Please could you ensure that your child has the correct kit in school on these days.
Homework will be given out on Fridays and will be expected in for the following Wednesday. All homework will be based on your child’s current learning in the classroom. If your child is finding any work difficult, please encourage them to speak to me before Wednesday so I can support them.
Your child should be reading every night. Please sign their diaries whenever you hear them read, 4/5 times a week would be wonderful.
Finally, as you may know in Year 6, the children will be taking their KS2 SATS tests in May. This will mean that the children will be assessed against national standards and their scores passed on to their secondary schools. Please be assured that this will not be the only focus this year. Your child will receive a balanced curriculum and by May, will be fully prepared to take these assessments.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am also on the Playground every morning so feel free to introduce yourself.
