This is an important school year for all Year 6 pupils.  Your chances are improved by completing the weekly tasks which include weekly reading of at least 50 pages, learning your weekly spellings and achieving 1000 points+ on Mathletics.  Mathletics points are now calculated from Monday to Monday so weekend working pays off.

Please make sure that your child reads for at least 30 minutes five evenings each week and makes a note of it in their reading journal, either at home or in school in the morning.  Also, it would be great if you had some time to discuss and share the book with your child.  We are really trying to promote reading for enjoyment and pleasure.  A record will be kept of the reading completed by your child and rewards can be earned.

In addition, look at the statutory word lists for Years 3/4 and Years 5/6 regularly.

Recommended reading lists have been added to the File Manager, too.
