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. Homework set on a Tuesday will be a spelling homework with a dictation using the homework words on Friday. Friday’s homework 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 Olivia.

A P.E. kit containing appropriate loose-fitting clothing and trainers/gym shoes are essential on those days
Dance (for each class this will only apply for 1 half term per term. 6B will have dance for the first half term. 6A will have dance for the second half term.)
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.
