Happy New Year.
The children have settled well back into school and are enjoying this term's topic of Early Islamic Civilisations. They have especially enjoyed Shakespeare as our English topic! We are covering fractions and related topics in Maths which is proving trickier if their times tables are not secure. Please continue to read regularly at home and practice these vital calculation skills. Spellings are now on Spelling Shed.

Welcome to Year 6 2022-2023
Welcome back – it’s been so good to see all of the children back in school after the holiday. They have settled back in amazingly well and have been impressing me with their positive learning behaviours.
Year 6 is such a busy and important year with lots going on. The SATs tests will take place in May, but we will have a meeting to explain all about them later on in the year. They are nothing to worry about as I will make sure that the children are well prepared for them and simply encouraged to do their best. The Beacon Centre residential trip is happening in July and further information will follow.
We will have outdoor games and PE on Thursday afternoons with the Sport's Coaches and another PE session every Wednesday afternoon. Could you please ensure PE kits are worn to school on these days.
- Plain white t-shirt
- Black or purple shorts
- Black or purple jogging bottoms (for outdoor PE)
- Black or purple sweatshirt/hoody (for outdoor PE)
- Suitable trainers (indoor P.E. bare feet)
If your child has hair down to their shoulders or longer then they will need to have it tied back. Any earrings will have to be removed or covered over by micropore tape or plasters (again by the child themselves). I appreciate that this may seem a bit of a pain, but both rules are standard in all schools and are for safety reasons. During the Spring Term we are swimming on a Wednesday afternoon so please ensure correct kit is supplied.
As ever, if you have any questions or need to speak to me please make an appointment via the school office or send a message on Dojo and I will happy to help wherever I can.
Thank you all for your continuing support.
