Happy New Year - welcome back and I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break.
As your child enters their last year of primary education, we have so much to keep them busy that I really hope they enjoy the final "stretch". Our topic for this term is Ancient Egypt so a new homework grid will be published soon to reflect this - the date to hand the 5 pieces back to me will be Friday 8th February 2019. In terms of homework, the children do all now have revision books for English and Maths and it would be very beneficial if they could try to read each a couple of times to really help them recall the things that they will need in May.
A few "housekeeping" things to remember: PE is every Friday so please ensure the children have their kit EVERY week - indoors is dark shorts and a white top - outdoors is as above plus suitable footwear and a plain dark tracksuit if it's colder. Art will still be every Wednesday with Mrs Hawke.
I look forward to seeing you all at Parents' Evening after half-term, but if you can not make an appointment on the allotted days and still want to see me please find me to arrange a mutually convenient time to do so.
I will be out on the playground each morning so if you need to speak to me feel free to catch me then or, if you need a little longer or somewhere quieter to speak, please make an appointment via the office.
Year 6 Homework
Please choose one item per week from the Homework Grid (obviously you can do more if you want to!)
In addition you MUST:
1) Read at least 3 times each week at home and record it in your Reading Record.
2) Practise mental maths skills such as fluent times table recall and the associated division facts. eg 6 x 7 = 42 means that 42 divided by 6 = 7.
3) Practise spellings from the Year 5/6 spelling list which is below on the webpage. Maybe use 10 each week in sentences to learn how to use them too.
