During this academic year, your children will be taught, guided and supported by a number of adults in school. We work closely as a team to ensure that we meet the needs of your child.
Class teacher: Miss Spooner
Other staff: Mrs Broadhurst, Miss Hickman, Mr Day and Mr Wheeler
Homework /Reading - Children are expected to read, discuss and answer questions about their reading book every night if possible, even if it is for only a few minutes. Please remember to sign your children’s diary when you have listened to them read. Please also use this diary to convey any messages to us if you are unable to catch us in the morning or after school. English and Maths homework shall be set on a Friday and will need to be returned by the following Wednesday. If there should be any issues with understanding of homework tasks, please encourage your child to come and speak to one of us before the homework is due in. Spelling lists and activities will also be sent home.
Attendance/Punctuality - Our attendance is closely monitored by our EWO (Education Welfare Officer). It is vital that all the pupils attend school every day. Holidays in term time are not allowed and, in line with other schools in the Wolverley Pyramid, holidays are marked as an unauthorised absence. Authorised leave for exceptional circumstances may be granted depending on attendance levels during the previous twelve months.
Snacks/Juice - Children may bring a healthy snack for morning break such as a piece of fruit and a drink (no fizzy drinks though, please). Snacks for morning break must be placed in lockers or trays at the beginning of the day. Children will not be able to access their lunchboxes until lunch time.
There will be a ‘Welcome to Year 5 and 6’ meeting on 14.09.18 (details to follow), but if you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to contact us, either before or after school or through the homework diary.
As I am sure that you are aware, Year 6 is an extremely important year as this is the year for KS2 SATs. We ask you to support your children with their reading and homework, and their attendance in lessons is extremely important. More details about these papers and how they will be administered will be given throughout the year.
