Summer Term Two topic Overview

Welcome back Year 6


Welcome to year 6 hope you all enjoyed your holidays now the work begins.....


P.E: In Year 6 our P.E days are now a Monday and a Wednesday. Please can children have all P.E kit in school on these days, we also may do other sessions during the week so P.E kit should be left in school whenever possible. Thank You


Reading: Children should always bring their reading record and reading book to school everyday. It is still very Important to hear your child as much as possible. It develops their language skills and enhances their vocabulary.


Water Bottles: Children can bring water bottles to school so they can have a drink during the day these bottles should only contain water as no juice is allowed. You can purchase a bottle from the office for £1.


Homework: Homework will be given to children on a Friday afternoon this is to be completed and brought back to school by the Wednesday. The homework will be related to that weeks work so it is important children do complete homework to the highest standard which will help them consolidate their learning.


Spellings: Spellings will be given to children on a Monday and a test will take place on a Friday. Please encourage your children to learn these spellings as they are words they need to know.


Can we just remind you all that we do not allow pencil cases in school children have all the equipment they need. Also children do not need a big rucksack a small book bag will be fine.


Thank You smiley
