Our Family Biography Exhibition

Will take place Wednesday 27th November 2019 at 2.30pm in the top hall. In place of an autumn assembly, this will be an exhibition and presentation based on the children’s family biographies. This term, the children will be working hard to produce a biography of a family member and this exhibition will give them the opportunity to present their projects and field questions from other children and adults, as well as showcasing the work they have been doing in music and dance.

School Journey to PGL – week beginning 28th October 2019

 Homework

Will be given out twice a week – Tuesdays (to be handed in by Friday) and Friday (to be handed in the following Tuesday).  It is your child’s responsibility to complete and return the homework on time. Please come and see us if homework is becoming an issue.

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.
