Love One Another
Autumn Term 2017
Welcome back - we hope you've all had a restful and enjoyable summer break.
Welcome to the Autumn Term in Year 6.
IMPORTANT DATE: Week beginning Monday 14th May - SATs week
GPS - weekly spelling tests will be on a Friday and the children will have tasks to complete linked to spellings - these need to handed in to Mrs Bright by Thursday before the test on Friday.
spag.com is used as a home learning tool, similar to the way MyMaths is used, your child's login details are in the front of their reading diary. Please see Mrs Moody if you have any problems logging on. You will receive a text when there is a new activity uploaded along with the due date.
MyMaths - activities will be set in a similar way to spag.com - you will receive a text to notify you of any new home learning tasks.
Homework and SATS:
In May 2018 Year 6 will sit tests in:
- o Reading
- o Maths
- o Spelling, punctuation and grammar
These tests will be both set and marked externally, and the results will be used to measure your child's progress. Your child’s marks will be used in conjunction with teacher assessment to give a broader picture of their attainment.
As we begin the build up to SATS we will be sitting practice tests so that the children are familiar with the test format, questions, timing etc. We will be sending some practice tests home for homework, along with a variety of tasks on ‘My Maths’, ActiveLearn and Spag.com. Please can you continue to provide support by ensuring that children have a quiet time put aside for their homework, and an opportunity to share their learning with you. If children are finding any piece of homework too difficult or they are taking more than 45 minutes - 1 hour to complete it, please do not persist. Simply write me a note to let me know.
SATS week commences on Monday 14th May 2017.
After the Christmas break we will be doing weekly practice SAT style papers in preparation.
Reading diaries - please ensure that your child is handing in their diaries regularly - at least 3 times a week to monitor their progress.
Our PE days are on a Wednesday and a Thursday. Our lessons may be outside some days therefore a pair of navy blue jogging bottoms/jumper is advised to be kept in their locker if needed.
I hope that this information is useful to you. Please feel free to pop by after school any day if you have any further questions.
