Miss Brock

Welcome back to school! 

I hope you had a lovely Easter break and are ready for your final term as Year 6! We have a very busy term with our SAT's, residential to London, enterprise projects, Prom, KS2 performances and finally, our leavers' assembly.

For our topic this term we will be reading 'The Jungle Book' as we will be learning about India. We will mostly be working on this after May half term once our SAT's work is done. 



SAT's week 14th May - 17th May

The timetable will be as follows: 

Next week the children will come to school for the normal school time. The children have been invited to join us for toast and juice in our Year 6 classroom from 8:40. We will then do a quick revision session before starting the SAT’s papers. 

The children have been asked to have a clear water bottle in school so that they can have it on their desks. They can also bring a small mascot to school, that can be on their desk, whilst they are completing their SAT’s. This could be a model, a photograph, a keyring or a small toy. 

More information can be found on the SAT's information evening resources at the bottom of this page.

These booster sessions run alongside all of the work we do during our weekly timetable, including booster groups, class based support and homework tasks. We will be running some lunch time booster groups as well as the groups after school. 

I would like to thank parents for the continued support with homework and booster sessions. 

A copy of the letter is attached to the bottom of the page. 


The children will not be receiving a Summer Term Homework grid this term. We will continue with our weekly Math's and English up until SAT's. After SAT's the children will be given their lines to learn as part of our KS2 performance. 

As well as this, we will be working on some projects after May half term, including some enterprise work, where the children may be required to work on parts of this at home. 

The children will also be receiving weekly Maths and English homework with a focus on what we are working on in class. On a Monday maths will be sent home and is to be handed in on the following Thursday. Then English will come home Thursday and is to be handed in the following Monday. The children will have English and Maths homework books where they will record the task. The tasks will range from online games or challenges to written tasks. 


The children will be given weekly spellings with a focus of a rule or spelling pattern. A copy of each week's spellings will be uploaded to the 'spelling' tab at the top of this page. 


The children are encouraged to read as much as possible at home and to keep a record of this in their diaries. we have a class library that the children can choose from or it can be a book they have from home. The diaries are signed weekly and I will be looking for a record of reading. There is also a section for parents to sign each week. 

There are also some suggested reading books for Year 6 children which can be found under the 'reading' tab at the top of this page. 

School Diaries 

Please remember to take your diaries home and bring them back to school every day. 

Water Bottles 

All children have been provided with a school water bottle where a donation of £1 will be put towards the running of the water filter machines. Water bottles should go home on a Friday for a wash and be returned back to school on a Monday. The water bottles will have fresh water every day. 


Our PE sessions are on a Wednesday and Thursday. For this term we have Tag Rugby with Mr Slainey on a Wednesday and Mr Bentham on a Thursday. As the children will be using the field as much as possible, we have suggested that the children have a pair of tracksuit bottoms or leggings, to wear under their shorts, and a hoodie to keep them warm. 

Outdoor shoes and coats 

All children should have a pair of outdoor shoes and a coat in school for play times and lunch times.
