Spring Term 2019
Happy New Year! As you are aware this is an important term in your child’s education. They are preparing for their end of Key Stage 2 tests. Over the term we will be revising key elements within English and Maths in order to ensure that your child reaches their maximum potential and is well prepared for secondary school. Therefore, we are hosting a SATs meeting for parents on Wednesday 6th February at 6:00pm in the Year 6 classroom. We strongly recommend that you attend this meeting so that you are aware of the arrangements for the test week. We would also appreciate it if the children came along with their parents.
We will be giving all the children revision guides and we will be working through these in class. Nearer to the SATS, the children will also be able to use these revision guides at home. In order to prepare the children for secondary school, homework will be set for Year 6 from January 11th. This will include a variety of English and Maths. Encourage your child to also use Mathletics and Times Tables Rock Stars to support their revision and help them to complete all homework that is set. Links to these websites are available via the school website.
During this term our topic will be based on World War 2. For further details about our curriculum please look at the relevant section on the school website.
As children approach secondary school they will start to use a wider variety of social media and online platforms at home. Please ensure that you talk with your children about how to stay safe online as we are experiencing an increase in reports of children in Year 6 using social media inappropriately or naively.
We look forward to meeting with you again at Parents’ Evening. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us via the office.
