Just a few reminders for you. This half term we will be having double PE on Fridays so please can children wear their kits on Fridays.
Maths and spellings homework will now be set on EdShed weekly. See below for dates homework is due and a guide to using EdShed. Our homework grid for this half term has also been set and should be returned by Wednesday 15th February. Children will bring a paper copy home but there is a copy attached below too.
Please don’t forget to ensure your children learn their weekly spellings for their spelling tests and also their Y5 and 6 spellings. The children have a copy of the spellings they still need to learn and some suggested strategies are attached below.
The long term plan below outlines the topics we will cover in each subject for each half term.
Dates for SATS have changed slightly due to the extra bank holiday for the coronation. SATs will now be Tuesday 9th May -Friday 12th May.
