End of KS2 Tests - Week Monday 8th May 2017
I would like to wish all the children in Year Six the very best of luck with their government tests next week. They have worked incredibly hard and absolutely deserve to be successful - which I am sure they will be! Many thanks for all of your continued support.
Year 6 – Summer Term 2017
Welcome back! I hope that you had a lovely Easter break and that your child is rested and ready to face the challenges of this next term.
I would first of all like to say what a successful Spring Term we have had in Year 6! I would particularly like to say how pleased I am that so many of the children have come in to school early on a Thursday and a Friday to take part in the numeracy ‘Revision Classes’. There is no doubt that these revision classes are having a positive impact on your child’s progress. With only a matter of days before the beginning of the government tests, I can’t stress enough how important it is that your child attends the remaining revision classes and that your child is not absent from school unless for absolutely unavoidable reasons. These remaining days are absolutely crucial to your child’s learning.
The last term has been challenging and hard work. This term will be equally challenging; week commencing Monday 8th May is test week and following this I will be working hard to ensure that your child is fully prepared for their transition to High School. If there are any aspects of transition that worry you, please do come and talk to me. In addition to all of this, we will be rehearsing our Year 6 Leavers Play (Annie)! There will be an awful lot to celebrate during the last 2 weeks of the school year: the Leavers Play, the Leavers Prom, the end of year trip and of course the Leavers Assembly. For these reasons I would urge you to not request any leave for your child during these last two weeks of the school year – authorised or unauthorised.
Our school motto, “Care to Learn and Learn to Care” provides an on-going dialogue in school and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support; Learning works best when it is a partnership between the school, the parents and the pupils.
A big part of this first half-term will be spent revising for and sitting our tests, but I have put an overview of our remaining areas of learning for the second half of this term on the website for your information.
If you wish to talk to me about any aspect of your child’s learning, my door is always open. We will ensure that we ‘Care to Learn and Learn to Care’ together.
