Home learning

 

Home learning tasks will be set on a Monday, and are due in on the following Monday. This may take a variety of forms, depending on your child's class, individual needs, and their current area of learning.  Spellings are set weekly; each child has 10 words to practise at home as well as spelling sentences; these are all based on the National Curriculum word bank, and we appreciate your support in practising these at home.  In addition to this, it is vital that your child is reading daily, and that reading records are signed at least three times weekly and seen in school on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. 

Swimming

Year 6 will be taking part in swimming lessons on Wednesday mornings, during the autumn term. 

Lessons will begin on Wednesday 7th September, until Wednesday 7th December.

Please see the attached letter for further information.

PE 

 PE kit should consist of: black shorts, trainers and a change of top (a school t-shirt in house colours).

 

Eden Camp Visit
October 2022
 
On Thursday 6th October, Year 6 were transported back in time and experienced the sights, sounds and smells of the home front and beyond in their first visit of the year to Eden Camp. Occupying 33 huts on a former World War 2 prisoner of war camp, it was most certainly a fantastic day! From tanks to torpedoes and recreations of The Blitz, these opportunities will, without a doubt, engage our children's future learning.
London Trip
May 2023
 
We are delighted to announce that Year 6 will be visiting London in May 2023. Please find attached the initial information letter, distributed prior to the summer break.
