Spring Term 2018
Over the term we will be revising key elements within English and Maths in order to ensure that your child reaches their maximum potential and is well prepared for secondary school. Therefore, we are hosting a SATs meeting for parents on Wednesday 31st January at 6:00pm in the Year 6 classroom. We strongly recommend that you attend this meeting so that you are aware of the arrangements for the test week. We would also appreciate it if the children came along with their parents.
We have given all the children revision guides and we will be working through these, especially during ‘Morning Study Club’. In the second half of the spring term, the children will be able to take their revision guides home. To support your child, please ensure that they are completing these revision guides on a regular basis and that they read to you daily. Encourage them to use Mathletics and Times Tables Rock Stars to support their revision and help them to complete all homework that is set. Links to these websites are available via the school website.
Children have really benefitted from attending ‘Morning Study Club’ and therefore it will continue from 8:00am every day. If your child does not yet attend ‘Morning Study Club’ they can begin at any time.
During this term our topic will be based on World War 2. For further details about our curriculum please look at the relevant section on the school website. Also this half term, we are inviting you to come in and attend four Reading sessions with your child: Thurs 11th, 18th, 25th Jan and 1st Feb from 2:30pm. PE will continue to be on a Thursday and children are expected to have their full PE kit in school on this day.
In February we will be focusing on online safety as part of ‘Online Safety Week’. As children approach secondary school they will start to use a wider variety of social media and online platforms at home. Please ensure that you talk with your children about how to stay safe online as we are experiencing an increase in reports of children in Year 6 using social media inappropriately or naively.
We look forward to meeting with you again at Parents’ Evening. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via the office.
