Here is a copy of our Autumn Newsletter 2017:
After an enjoyable and hopefully restful break, we are all looking forward to an exciting Autumn Term. The purpose of this newsletter is to give you information about this Term.
Autumn Term – History-Local Area Study ‘The Impact of the Victorian Railways in Britain’
Spring Term – Geography- India
Summer Term – History – ‘Ancient Greek Life’
Any artefacts or books which you are happy for your child to bring in and put on display in the class would be most welcome, but please make sure they are clearly labelled with your child’s name.
Homework in the Year 6:
Homework is distributed on Thursdays and needs to be handed in on the following Tuesday at the latest. Any reasons for it not being completed, please write a short note for the class teacher.
Here at Byfleet Primary School, we expect your child to read at home on a regular basis. We would like to see evidence of this in their reading records five times per week. This supports the expectations of the New Primary English Reading Curriculum. In Year 6, we also ask the children to widen their reading genre by asking them to choose from a small collection of books from our literary heritage. These texts are challenging but also a new requirement of the English expectations. When they finish reading each text they should also complete a short ‘Book Review’ which your child should take home with each book.
In addition to this, our children should be practising their times tables and spellings regularly too in preparation for weekly tests. The purpose of this is for the children to retain the spellings to use and apply them in their work not just learning them for that particular week.
Indoor P.E. will take place on a Tuesday afternoon and Outdoor Sports will be on Thursday afternoon. Your child should bring their named kit in on a Monday and take it home to be cleaned on a Friday. They should have it in school all week to avoid missing a session due to ‘a forgotten kit’! A note will be sent home to parents with a reminder sticker should any part of the PE kit be forgotten.
A ‘Meet the Teacher’ session has been arranged for the 21st September at 6 pm for Key Stage 2. We are looking forward to meeting you all to explain expectations about the coming year and answering any questions you might have.
If, in the meantime, you have any queries or concerns or would like to discuss anything about your child, please do not hesitate to contact myself or the office in order to arrange a time suitable to meet. We are looking forward to an exciting and successful year for all the children in the class.

Can you make a silly sentence to help you remember the letter order of a spelling?
Big Elephants Can Always Understanding Small Elephants
Look at the spelling carefully, cover it up and write it. Then check - were you right?
Repeat this a few times.
Temperature - I will have a temper- at -ure if you don't remember how to spell temperature.
Business - Bus - i - ness
There are some rules which can be learnt to help you know how to add suffixes as well as the order of letters.
e.g. i before e, except after c when making an 'ee' sound
e.g. when a word has a consonant before the y to make it a plural you remove the y and add -ies.
Remember though - there are always awkward ones that don't follow the rule! Sorry - you just have to learn these!
