Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you have had an enjoyable yet restful Easter break and I am happy to see the children back ready for a very busy and hardworking term!

 

This term our topic is: “The Maya”.  I am sure the children will enjoy learning all about the history of this fascinating period, including all the important advances during this time.  We will also focus on geographical features of this part of the world.

 

PE lessons will continue to take place on Mondays and Thursdays and in the second half of this term the children will take part in swimming for one of these sessions. As we lead up to Sports Day and District Sports, the children will be preparing their Athletics skills for these in their PE lessons. PE kits should include black shorts for indoors and tracksuit trousers for outdoor lessons. Children without a PE kit will receive a reminder in their reading record books. 

 

To clarify, homework will continue to be issued on Thursdays and due in the following Tuesday (unless otherwise notified). 

 

SATS week begins on Monday 13th May – the children have been working very hard in class as well as their morning revision groups and daily homework. If there are any questions regarding the tests, please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

From last Spring term, the children filled up their marble jar and their reward is going to be a ‘World Day’ which will include a wide range of activities inspired by different places around the world, ranging from cooking, art, history, geography etc. The children have already shared some fantastic ideas for this day – if you have any artefacts, recipes, photographs etc to share – please do! This day (TBC) will take place the week beginning Monday 20th May, the week after SATS week.

 

Towards the end of term, don’t forget we have: the Year 6 swimming party, secondary school transition days, the Year 6 leaver’s book and our leaver’s assembly on the last day!

 

The children have worked so hard all year – we are incredibly proud of them. We are looking forward to a fantastic end of the year and last term for them at Byfleet Primary.

Thank you all for your continued support and, as always, please get in contact with us if there is anything you would like to discuss about your child’s progress or their learning.

 

Yours sincerely,

Miss Yuen

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

May we start by wishing you all a happy New Year. I hope you had an enjoyable and peaceful Christmas break!  On behalf of the Year 6 Team, we would like to thank you for your generous presents, cards and well wishes; it was very thoughtful and greatly appreciated. 

 

Looking ahead, we have another exciting topic this term: Our World. It will concentrate on map work, physical features, landmarks, cultures and climates. This is in line with the new Geography and English National Curriculum.  It will also include cross-curricular subject matter in RE, Art and History.

 

To clarify, homework will continue to be issued on Thursdays and due in the following Tuesday (unless otherwise notified). English & Maths homework will be set as worksheets, Mathletics tasks will continue to be set online for completion by Tuesday. Please let us know if there are any problems with access to this very useful online tool. Spelling sheets, with grammar tasks, are issued with the rest of the homework and are expected to be completed and handed in a week later. Children are expected to read at home for approximately 20 minutes on five out of seven nights in the week and recorded in record books either by your child or by the parent/carer.

 

Please can we remind parents that during the cold weather children should come in to school with jumpers or cardigans and a coat!  If it is too cold and they do not have jumpers and coats children will not be allowed outside – this is for their own welfare.  They must also wear a white shirt and school tie as per school expectations.   

 

PE kits, which should include black shorts for indoors and tracksuit trousers (if you would like) for outdoor lessons, must be brought in to school every Monday and taken home on Fridays to be washed. Children without a PE kit will be set work during this time and will receive a reminder in their reading record books.  Earrings must be removed before PE. Our usual Tuesday PE session has been moved to a Monday this half term.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to make you aware that there have been many incidents involving the use of social media and Whatsapp on phones during evenings and weekends. There have been some unkind messages and use of inappropriate language which has become a distraction in the classroom. Please could I ask you to monitor the use of these apps to ensure the children are focused for this important school year.

 

Thank you all for your continued support and, as always, please get in contact with us if there is anything you would like to discuss about your child’s progress or their learning.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Miss Yuen
