Welcome to Year 6
Welcome back Year 6 families. We hope you all had a relaxing week off despite the terrible weather!
Term 2 will be a busy but extremely fun term in the run up to Christmas.
We are very much looking forward to meeting you during the Parent’s Evening meetings. If you haven’t yet, please sign up to a time slot so we can discuss your child’s progress.
Please can we remind you to ensure your child brings a bottle of water to school every day.
PE will be taking place on Monday and Thursday afternoons. Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school; this must include shoes that are suitable for running around in. PE will be taking place outside so please ensure your child’s PE is suitable for colder weather.

Even if your child is a Free Reader, reading to an adult at home is vital for their development. Please ensure your child reads daily. All children will be awarded free books for reading at home.
Spellings are really important! We will continue to hold our test on a Friday. Please support your child by encouraging them to practice regularly.
