This week, the children have completed their first set of practise SATs papers for Maths and GPS (grammar, punctuation and spelling).  This is so we can get a good idea of where the gaps are in learning so we can address these day-to-day in class. We have marked the papers with the children and sent them home to be shared with yourselves.  Please take some time to talk through these together, discussing areas of difficulty, identifying any new vocabulary and focusing on questions where the children are 'nearly there' but may have made a silly mistake.  Obviously, the children are only at the start of Year 6 and there is a lot to learn throughout the year but becoming familiar with the style of SATs questions and talking about them together in a relaxed environment at home really helps to build confidence and encourage discussions about learning.  Thank you for your support.    

Homework for next week can be found below (see 003.Year 6 Weekly Homework wc 16th Sept 19).  Please check your child has completed their tasks and sign their homework diary at the end of the week to show that they have completed the work.
