PE will take place on Tuesdays (outdoor) and Fridays (indoor). On Tuesdays, we will be learning how to play 'throw tennis' and 'scorpion handball'; on Fridays, the children will be choreographing and performing a dance related to our coastal topic. Please help to make sure your child has appropriate PE kit for both days (as well as being prepared to tie back long hair and remove earrings).



Year 6 children will be given homework activities to support their learning every Friday. It is due back in by the following Thursday.

Homework will be set predominantly in the core subjects (reading, writing, grammar, spellings and maths) and will be based upon their learning in class that week. We assign homework to further support their understanding throughout the year. As well as preparing them for their end of Key Stage 2 assessments, the homework in Year 6 will also help to prepare them for the expectations at secondary school.

Please do not hesitate to speak to your child's class teacher should your child have difficulty with the content or quantity of the homework assigned.



Your child will have regular opportunities to read independently in school and to choose and change books. Please help to build upon your child's enthusiasm for reading by hearing them read, talking about books and updating their reading record book at home  as often as possible (we will also make notes in this when we have heard your child read one to one or in guided reading groups).
