Last half term during our English lessons Year 6 will be studied an amazing book called 'There's a boy in the girl's bathroom' by Louis Sachar. The book explored a number of themes including friendships, aspirations, hopes as well as achieving our targets. We will also be looking linking our geography work to the text which will be on understanding continents with a focus on America.

As you know the children (and staff) are working extremely hard to prepare for the SATS. Thank you to all who attended our Y6 meeting last week - it was great to see so many of you.  

This year they will take place during W/C 11th May. 

 

To help your child prepare for SATS please continue to: 

 

- Listen to them read daily and encourage reading a wide variety of texts (fiction, non-fiction and poetry)

- Support them with their homework

- Make sure they are always encouraged to aim high and do their best!
