Happy New Year!
We hope that you had a wonderful Christmas break.
Starting this term, homework for Year 6 children will be changing as part of their transition to high school. In order to prepare your child for Year 7 and the demands that they will face, the children will no longer be given set homework on a Wednesday due back in on a Monday. Spellings will still be sent on a Wednesday to be tested on a Monday but other tasks will vary depending on the week and the work completed in class. This will mean that children may be given work that is due to be completed and returned the following day. This will both consolidate their learning in class and prepare them for future lessons.
As part of this change, the children will also be working through a series of books within class that link with a homework book. These books will then be useful revision tools for the children. We have obtained a discount on these books and the school has also subsidised half of the cost but there will be a cost of £4.50 per student. This price covers 6 books per student.
Please make payment on Parent Pay.
Many thanks for your continued support
The Year 6 team.
