Dear year 6,
Welcome to a new and busy Autumn 2 term. We hope you have had a restful break. The children have settled in quickly and are beginning to find their feet in year 6; eager and ready to learn.
Below you will find information about the curriculum grid and what we will be covering. As the children will receive their SATS homework books, there will be no homework grid to complete this half term. Please see below for the homework timetable. We would like to encourage parents/carers to ensure the children’s homework is handed in on time and completed independently. This will help prepare them for their move to secondary school.
Both classes will complete their 2 week swimming course therefore we have planned for less projects as their timetable will be reduced for that time.
We encourage children to continue to read for at least 10 minutes every day and record these in their reading records ready to be handed in on Thursdays. A spelling test is part of their SATS assessments so we are revising all the year 5/6 and year 3/4 spellings. Children should practice these and ensure they know these spellings for both the spelling test on Thursdays as well as their SATs.
We look forward to a successful and exciting half term ahead. It is important that you child is in every day and punctual, as we build on knowledge and if they miss out, they struggle to catch up.
