Useful reminders: 
- Our school day now starts at 8.30 for the children in Year 6  - please ensure your child arrives in school promptly.
- Our school day now ends at 3pm for the children in Year 6. 
As a result of Covid-19, we will be following government guidance to keep pupils and adults as safe as possible in school. This will include: staggered start and end times (as above); virtual assemblies; pupils remaining in year group bubbles and pupils being reminded to wash and sanitise their hands regularly. 


We understand that some pupils have mobile phones and that they use these as they walk to and from school on their own. We must stress that mobile phones should be turned off once your child has entered the school grounds. Mobile phones should then be given to a member of staff so that they can be securely put away during the school day and returned at the end of the day.

In Year 6, our PE days are  Tuesdays and Thursday. Please ensure your child arrives in school wearing weather appropriate PE kit on these days. 
New spellings will be sent home on a Tuesday and tested on the following Monday. These spellings will cover the Year5/6 objectives from the National Curriculum and also the KS2 statutory words. 
Homework will be sent home on a Friday for children to complete. This will include work around the KIRFS and a reading comprehension. At the moment we don't require children to return this to school but it should be kept in their homework book at home ready for when we can accept more in school. 
Children should be reading at home at least three times a week - this regular reading will be a huge help for making the expected this year. Please ensure you use your child's reading record to include any reading at home so that this can be check in school on a Friday. 
Congratulations to Martha, who has been elected as our School Councillor. Martha wrote a very passionate and mature manifesto, which really impressed her class members and staff working in 6R. We are looking forward to seeing what the School Council do this year and hearing about it all from Martha.
