For some of you this will be your last term at Marcham school so I hope it's an enjoyable one. Please see the attached topic web, where you can find information about what we will be learning. All being well, SATs results will be available after the 9th of July. As well as starting a new topic, I am also really looking forward to starting our end of year KS2 play.
PE kits need to be in school every day and we will probably have a PE session outside each week so the children will need warm clothing for this.
I am really looking forward to taking the children on our residential trip in March this year and will inform you of a meeting in due course. Year 6 will also be undertaking the Junior Citizenship Programme this month (January) which is always a wonderful experience.
I will let you know about a SATs meeting for parents in due course but the dates for this year’s SATs are 13th-16th May. Please note that writing assessments will be ongoing until end of June.
Children should read daily, complete spelling practise on spelling shed and continue to work on their times tables and division facts. Children need to be fluent in their tables to access the year 5 and 6 maths curriculum.
Year 5 will also be set homework on Mathletics. Year 6 will bring home their SATs homework booklets.
Homework is set on a Monday and due in on a Friday so that it can be marked over the weekend.
Children are welcome to ask for support during the week if they need it.
Thank you for your support.
