The children have homework twice a week. The work will be sent home on a Tuesday and a Friday and should be returned on the following Friday/Tuesday. The work will be drawn from what the children are currently learning at school. It provides you and your child with the opportunity to work together and for you to have an insight into some of the areas of the curriculum as well as helping you to see some of the methods the children are learning at school. Homework shouldn’t be a source of grief or stress! If you are having problems with this then please do go and see Katherine or Gail.

This year the children will have dance lessons for one half term per term on Wednesdays. 5T will have their lessons for the first half of each term. 5S will have dance lessons for the second half of each half term. Both classes will have a PE lesson each Thursday. The classes will swap over after each half term. Children need to bring in a change of clothes for these activities (T- shirt, vest, loose fitting jogging bottoms, shorts, leggings, etc.). They should also have suitable footwear e.g. trainers.

How you can help
If you have any knowledge, skill, or artefacts related to what we are learning in school, then please do get in touch with your child’s teacher. We love having our Parents and Carers come in and help us all to learn!

Statutory Assessments
In the Summer Term, our Year 6 children sit statutory exams in Reading, Grammar and Punctuation, Spelling, and Maths. Whilst some discrete exam preparation takes place, we try to keep it to a minimum and try to ensure that the children are shielded from stress and pressure as much as possible. A meeting for parents about SATs will take place in the Spring term.
