Year 6

7th January 2018

Dear Parents / Carers,

 

Welcome back from what I hope was a fantastic break. Hopefully, everyone is well rested and ready for an exciting and busy term. I am sure you are aware of how important Year 6 is, and especially this term, as we prepare for the KS2 SATs.

 

Following on from here, home learning in the form of KS2 SATs revision and question books will continue as preparation for SATs. We cannot over-emphasise the importance of parental involvement in home learning. Children whose parents actively encourage and support their home learning provide a very strong message that learning is valued which results in much greater progress. Your role is crucial in the success of Home Learning. However, should the children be struggling with any aspect of this, there is a home learning club on Tuesday in Year 6 for children who feel they need additional help or guidance. Homework days are outlined in a separate table below.

 

In addition to our SATs preparations, we will, of course, be endeavouring to provide a broad and exciting curriculum. Attached to this letter is a planned overview of the curriculum for Spring term in Year 6.

 

P.E. will now be on Monday and Thursday afternoons.; your child must have his/her PE kit in school throughout the week. PE kit is black shorts / tracksuit bottoms, white PE shirt and the option of a red sweatshirt in colder weather. Correct PE shoes must be worn for PE.

 

Reading: Your child has a Reading Record Diary. Please sign each time your child does any reading. It is the responsibility of your child to independently change a finished reading book. We encourage children to read for a sustained period of time (30 minutes is the recommended time and this will help the children to develop reading stamina in preparation for assessments). Reading is one of the most crucial skills and unlocks all other aspects of learning; it is also a wonderful opportunity to share a book with your child. Even if you feel that your child is a fluent reader, it is still vitally important that you talk to your child about what they have read.

 

Finally, there will be a SATs meeting on Wednesday 16th January for you and your child to attend. Please have a look at the revision guides and come along with any questions you may have. Following the SATs week Years 5 and 6 will be going on residential; may I take this opportunity to remind you that the deposit is due by the 8th January. Any children not going on the residential will still need to attend school.

 

If you need to contact me about anything, or if there has been a problem with completing the home learning, please let me know either by, class DoJo, email or catch me on the playground in the morning. My email is jleach@stjohnstiverton.co.uk
