I hope you all managed to enjoy some of the summer and are ready for the last year of primary school.
I’m so looking forward to this new and exciting year ahead, as we’ve got some great topics lined up, and will hopefully be able to enjoy some of the other activities that are so looked forward to in year 6.
This year gives children so many opportunities to build on their skills, experiences, confidence and independence in order to prepare them for their life in secondary school and on into the wider world.
At the beginning of this term the children are asked to apply for the extremely important roles of Head/Deputy Head boy and girl, if they so wish, as well as the positions of House Captains. As a school, we regard these positions very highly.
As far as the weekly timetable is concerned, I just want to pass on the following information:
Mondays – P.E. kits are needed to be worn to school (with Mrs Guiel)
Fridays (until Christmas) – we are going swimming – starting Friday 15th September. The £2:00 per week is payable on ParentPay.
With regards to homework, the weekly challenges will continue to be reading and times tables practise. The children will be coming home with a paper Reading Record again.
Other homework will be sent home periodically, relating to the topic work being done.
Although homework is not a legal requirement, much of the work done at home will complement and enhance the work being done in class, and will be put into the children’s books to show their progress. It also helps in preparing them for the expectations and demands of secondary school.
Homework can be done on paper, on HWB or can be emailed directly to me on my class email – email@example.com
Could I please ask that you encourage your child to email their work themselves, using their HWB account, rather than your own personal ones, as this is a great way of improving their IT skills.
Please feel free to contact me via my email address or through Dojo about any matters. I might not always see your messages straight away, so if you feel that something is urgent, please contact the school office directly.
I look forward to seeing you throughout the year!
