SATs are over.
We would like to say well done to year 6 who worked very hard in the run- up to the tests and maintained a positive attitude during test week.
Our foci for the last half term are:
Keep working and learning, ensuring the children keep achieving.
Enjoy some trips around London.
Do as much as we can before your child makes the transition to year 7 in September.
Our IPC topic for the next few weeks is called 'They See the World Like This'.
During this unit of work we will be looking at ways in which artists of all types 'see' the world and represent it in their work. It's a great opportunity for year 6 children to do lots of creative activities. Your child will bring a letter home this week with further details.
Look at the picture below by the Impressionist Claude Monet.
Try and answer the following questions-
1) What time of day do you think the picture shows? Why?
2) What is the building?
Welcome to year 6!
We wish to send a warm welcome to everyone in year six. This is a very important and hard-working year for children and, of course, parents and carers will be thinking hard about secondary transfer (please see the letter on this page for more details about the secondary transfer meeting.)
We know that you, as parents, are keen for your children to do well and like to help them. These are some ways to help you do so:
Please make sure your child is reading regularly at home. If they are not bringing home a book from school, it is not because they don't have one.
Spend some time questioning them about what they read.Show an interest in their reading material.
Please help your child practise times tables- fast recall of these is a huge advantage for your child.
We have enrolled your children in an online curriculum called StudyLadder. They have all received their usernames and passwords and can access the activities at studyladder.co.uk.
We will regularly give children activities to be completed online. If your child is unable to access the Internet at home, they are welcome to try some activities during lunch breaks.
We know that by year 6 we are less likely to see parents at the beginning or end of the school day however, if you have anything you need to discuss, please call the school to make an appointment and we will get back to you.
