Welcome back to the second half of the Spring Term - I hope you had a good half term rest! We still have an exciting and busy term ahead of us.
Spring is always a busy term for the children and I'm sure they are ready to come back keen and ready to learn! In particular, the Year 6 will begin preparation tasks for their SATs which commences 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. If you have any queries about this, please don’t hesitate to come in and have a chat.
Last term's learning topic of "Frozen Kingdom" was fanastic, thje children were so enthused and produced some excellent work. Following on from this, we will begin our new topic of "Darwin's Delights" where we will study the history and theory of evolution on life on earth. 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. Click on the pictures below for links to websites that will provide further information on our learning.
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!
