SATs revision

Use Friday as a chance to keep on top of your SATs revision home learning.

In your SATS GPS book, go to page 19 and complete Set A: Puzzle.

In your SATS Maths book, go to page 16 and complete Set A: Arithmetic test.

Remember, after the arithmetic test, note any areas you might need to cover as part of your revision.

If you are given the separate maths and English sheets, you can complete those.

 

Any other home learning due needs to be completed by Tuesday 1st March.

Have a wonderful half term, everyone! :)

 

Mobile phones and WhatsApp

We've been made aware that there have been some problems with messaging on mobile phones in Year 6 and particularly with the use of Whatsapp.

I have put together an information sheet with links for you that I hope you may find useful to help discuss this with your children at home. We have also had a talk with the children in school. It is worth noting that WhatsApp is legally only for children over 16.

Kind regards

What are the children learning this term?

See attachments below to find out what the Y6 children will be learning this term.

Remote Learning

Hopefully this year there will be fewer occasions when children will need to be self-isolating but, if they need to, the LSP Remote Learning Grid for each term is provided as an attachment below.  Although the activities may not always match exactly the tasks the children will be doing in the classroom, they will often follow similar general topics and objectives.

Maths worksheets to accompany lessons - Please contact your child's class teacher (see emails above) for maths worksheets to accompany the lessons or more information if needed.
