Welcome to the Y5/6K information page!

I am looking forward to a great year, working with you and your children.

Some information for you:

PE and Games will be on Tuesday with Rick and Friday with myself. Can you please make sure children have their PE kits in school; including footwear suitable for indoors and outdoors, a jacket or hoodie would be good also for when we get the chance to go outside.

Children all have a reading book appropriate for their reading age. Could I ask that you listen to your child read at least 3 times a week at home and record this with a signature in their reading records. To help with their understanding of what they are reading it is helpful if you can sit with them and ask questions about their books, this will help with inference and will help them when completing work in school such as comprehension.

Spellings are given out every Monday - and will be tested each Friday.

Maths homework is given out on Friday to be handed in on Monday, it may be necessary to help your child with it from time to time.

All children have a log in for Times Table Rockstars (inside Reading Record) this is a valuable tool to them to improve their speed and fluency helping with their Maths work in school.

Homework for English is given occasionally, as well as their reading. This may be Thinking Homework for their Hot Write.

Children also have access to lots of on line learning platforms they can do from home, such as; Bug Club, Doodle Maths and I Am Learning, they should all know their log in details

Robin Wood has been booked for June 14th - 16th 2019 for our Year 6's and there will be a parents meeting on Tuesday 16th October 2018 at 5:30pm where we will be available to answer any of your questions.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Miss Kirkpatrick
