Where has the year gone? I can't believe the Year 6's are in their final term of primary school.
This term promises to be a fun-filled, action packed term for the children, as they focus on their end of year production - Cinderella and Rockerfella (tickets for this will be available soon). They will also be focusing on writing, and writing for a range of purposes, ensuring they are using a variety of punctuation accurately and up levelling their vocabulary - using some of the words on our class vocab castle. They will become designers and artists as they prepare the props for their play - we can't wait to show you all our amazing performance skills.
It promises to be a fantastic term!
Please make sure the children have their P.E. kits in school all week. We have P.E. on a Monday and Tuesday.
Reading and Homework
Please ensure the children are reading daily at home. Below is a link outlining 100 books recommended for all children to read before leaving primary school:
Which one's have you read? Which will you aim to read before Christmas?
Maths homework needs to be completed weekly. After discussions with parents I will be handing out arithmetic style questions for the children. They will receive 36 questions a week, the expectation is that they only do this for half an hour (this is the allocated time they will have during SATs).
Additionally, the children will be given a SPaG or reading paper this term to complete weekly. This should take no longer then 45 minutes. This will be in place of their topic homework. If you have any questions or concerns about this please feel free to ask.
