In Year 6 this term, we are learning how to read and write a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry, including writing to persuade and developing characters. We’ll be reading Cogheart by Peter Bunzl and Boy in the Tower by Polly Ho Yen.
In Mathematics, we’re focusing on revising previously learnt topics to ensure that the children are well prepared for the SATs tests in May. We welcome all the support you are able to give your child at home, but would like to ensure that you help your child by continuing the methods they are being taught in school. If you would like to know the methods your child is being taught, please do not hesitate to come into school and ask.
In science, we will be learning about the human body. Please encourage your child to read about tis topic at the library or complete online research – remember that the children can borrow two books at a time from the Active Learning Library.
SATs will take place on the week of 9th May. It is vital that we continue to work in partnership to ensure that your child makes the most of their learning opportunities. We would like to thank you for your continued support with your child with their school work, ensuring that they are in school on time and are ready to start the day.
During SATs week, we will be providing breakfast to all children and ask that they are in school at the slightly earlier time of 8.30 in order to be prepared for the day. This can be a stressful time so it is important that we remind the children that they have worked extremely hard and are well prepared for the tests.
We have lots of exciting events to look forward to this term including an fun-filled activity day at Longridge, the Mayor’s assembly and the Year Six Production.
If you have any concerns or worries during the school year, please arrange a time with the school office to meet with your child’s teacher or speak to them at the end of the school day. As usual, the summer term will be full and enjoyable.
