Year 6 Sycamore 2018 - 2019
Welcome to Sycamore Class
Class Teacher - Mr Laird
Teaching Assistant - Mrs Reid
Welcome back to our last term – where has the year gone!
With this being the children's last year in primary school, everyone at Sutton Green wants to make this last term as special as possible. The children have got lots to look forward to, in particular, their residential to France; continuing to learn a musical instrument; their Leaver’s production and transition days at their new high schools.
Before all that though comes those little letters... SATs which commence the week beginning 13th May. These are statutory tests which ALL Year 6 pupils across the country have to complete. It is therefore important that your child is in school ALL of May.
Below we have attached our presentation from our SATs meeting, yet if you have any queries about what was discussed, please don’t hesitate to come in and have a chat.
Last term's learning topic of "Darwin's Delights" was fanastic, the children were so enthused and produced some excellent work. Following on from this, we will begin our new topic of "Hola Mexico". It again promises to be a hugely exciting term with lots of connections and activities across all the different subjects. I have attached an information sheet for parents about this.
As you will see from our class timetable, attached below, indoor P.E is taught on Tuesday afternoons and our Outdoor Games session is on Thursday afternoon. Please ensure the correct kit is clearly named and brought to school on the these days. In the colder months, for Outdoor Games, this will mean a warm top, tracksuit bottoms and trainers.
Catch-up swimming lessons will start on 5th June until 24th July running for 8 weeks for non-swimmers. A letter will be sent home nearer the time to inform you if your child will be taking part in these sessions.
English homework tasks are set on alternate Thursdays and are to be returned on Monday. In the build up to SATS there will be a weekly maths task to complete on sumdog. Alongside that, your child will be given spellings in their lesson on Tuesday to learn ready to be tested the following Wednesday.
Please can all maths work be completed in pencil and English work in black pen. It is important that standards of presentation remain high. Please not that any homework handed in late will not be marked by the teacher.
If you have any questions or queries about anything, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Don't forget to log in to SumDog weekly to complete Maths, Reading and Spelling activities. Remember the more games you complete, the more points you earn and the more levels you unlock! What are you waiting for!
