Reading is so important
Reading is a key skill as it affects all areas of day to day life. As a school, we promote a love of reading and encourage children to read a wide range of different genres.
When children can read fluently with good understanding, they self-select books from our well stocked library.
We still encourage children in Y6 to read out loud to an adult at home to continue to share that love of reading. We read whole class texts as well as group texts in guided reading sessions.

Other texts we recommend reading with your Year 6 child are...
We always encourage children to learn to spell correctly. Y6 children have weekly spellings looking at the spelling rules which are then tested the following week through dictation.
To support them and let them have some fun while learning we use an online program called Spelling Shed. This can be accessed at home, using the link below. Please see your class teacher for login details.
The school day starts at 8.40am.
Let the school office know if your child is not attending and the reason for absence.
The school day ends at 15.15.
Please bring a coat daily as we will go out for physical activity every day - what ever the weather.
We have at least two PE lessons per week. In Y6, we ask the children wear their PE kit's to school on Tuesday and Thursday.
We do PE in all types of weather so please ensure your child has suitable PE kit. In the Summer months we recommend shorts and t-shirt and in the winter long trousers with t-shirt and hoodie. Trainers should be worn.
An example of our kit, which can be purchased from NK Sports, is abovec or your child needs a plain white t-shirt and black shorts.
We are also skipping for two minutes per day, as part of Skip to be Fit and complete the Daily Mile.
