We are very pleased to inform you that in July 2022 we will be offering a five-night residential trip to France for Year 6 pupils. We have booked the week of Monday 4th July – Saturday 9th July 2022. Booking for this trip has now closed. If you haven't reserved a place and would like your child to go please contact our finance officer Jane Peterson at email@example.com. At this late stage we may have to put your child on a waiting list.
FInd out how the trip went in 2020, this was the last time we were able to go due to COVID. This should give you an idea of what happens on the trip.
Parents we need your help with online safety
Online safety is continues to be a concern – nationally research shows over half of teachers believe it is now more likely their pupils will experience issues as a result of lockdown. We are also noticing a change in pupil’s behaviour and interactions online.
We have lots of useful information on online safety on our web page here:
Another emerging concern is availability and viewing of non-age appropriate video content on the website YouTube. For additional support on how best to protect you child when viewing video content on this website please see these two video for tips and advice on how to keep you child safe.
Due to the Government’s period product scheme, we have a supply of sanitary towels for girls that require them. This is so girls don’t miss out on their education due to having their period. These are now available in the Year 5 and 6 girls’ toilets on the windowsill. The girls will also be told of the location as there was previously sanitary products in a different location. There will be safety information displayed alongside the products and there is a sanitary bin for safe disposal. If you have a daughter, who has started her periods, please explain that if she needs these products, she can help herself without asking and then can dispose on her old sanitary towel and wrapping in the sanitary bin. If your child is already brining in sanitary products, she can continue to do so but there are products available if needed. The make we have are Always sanitary towels. Please talk to your daughter, about how to use these safely, including that they should be changed regularly. The brand Always suggest they should be changed every 4- 8 hours for health reasons. If your daughter is ever worried about having their period at school, please encourage them to speak to their teacher or another trusted adult in school.

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise. Our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:
- Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. Complete your child’s reading record each time they read. Remember it doesn’t always have to be their school book. Reading records and reading books should be sent into school daily. Teachers will have a look at these to check regular reading is taking place at home.
- Learning spelling patterns linked to Year Group expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home.
- Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. Log on to Timestable Rockstars!
- Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.
You will be able to see your child’s progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home at least once during every term as well as at parent consultation meetings.
- Find out more here.
Please practice all Year 5 and 6 words, in Reading Journals.
Children will bring home their reading book, linked to the phonics or book band they have been assessed at. They also have the choice to select a recommended reading book or library book to share at home with you.
- Find our Recommended Reading lists here (scroll to the bottom)
- Ensure Reading Journals are signed daily and new vocabulary is written. This should be brought into school daily.
TimesTables Rockstars is an online programme we have introduced to encourage children to have fun with multiplication facts while improving fluency, recall and speed. Children can access it in their own time on any IOS, Android or Windows device.
What is it?
Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of times tables practice.
How does it work?
Incorrect answers are always immediately corrected in front of your child so that they start to associate the correct answer to every question. The clever code behind the scenes works out which times tables facts each child is consistently taking longer to answer and then it gradually starts to present these facts more frequently until they have mastered them. It will also ask related division questions 20% of the time in order to reinforce division facts.
How do I log in?
Log in here: https://ttrockstars.com/login, use your child's details that came home at the end of the Summer Term, lost them? Speak to your child's class teacher.
Please see the sites below for other interactive games to help your children's fluency in recalling their multiplication and division tables.
