Monday and Thursday are PE days, children will need to bring their PE kits in to school on these days.
PE kit should consist of a navy or white t-shirt with navy/black shorts or navy/black tracksuit bottoms / leggings. Children will need pumps or trainers because we will be outside as much as possible.

Reading Books
Children can change their reading books on a Tuesday. If your child chooses a longer book, they may keep their reading book for two weeks, if needed. Please try to listen to your child reading for at least 10 minutes each day.

Times tables
Times table facts up to 12x12 are essential knowledge needed to pass our Year 6 SATs tests. Children who do not yet know their times tables are struggling to keep up with the Year 6 arithmetic curriculum. Please ensure your child practise their times tabls for 15 minutes each day.

Year 6 will be assigned Reading and / or Maths homework which will be marked on Tuesday mornings. They can also choose to complete activities from the 'topic homework menu' below.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Best wishes,
Miss Blackstone
