Bayton CE Primary School
Welcome back! I hope you have all had a wonderful and restful Christmas time.
As you are probably aware, SATs are just around the corner. We have a term and a half to go. We will spend the first few weeks getting back into the swing of things, but the hard work starts now.
Having got to know the children and the types of learners they are, the English and Maths I teach will be based both around the tests and Year 6 objectives in an enriched and exciting way. Children will be set individual targets from a close analysis of their achievements in the Autumn Term. High expectations and a positive approach to the curriculum will be evident throughout as always!
The children will be having a Dance instructor every Thursday morning for P.E, finding out about other Religions in RE and having the opportunity to discuss important things in SMSC sessions. Our theme is changing for the Spring Term. This will be called ‘Invasion’ based on the book ‘The Rabbits’ by John Marsden and Shaun Tan. In Science we will be learning about Global Warming and the protection and sustainability of our environment as well as Electricity. We will be studying History for the first half of the term, looking at World War 2 and Geography for the Second half, focusing on Global Warming. P.E is on a Tuesday and Thursday but as always this can change so could you please ensure that P.E bags are in school for the week. Children will also be having a Comprehension Session with Ms Cynthia Wardle on a fortnightly basis to help with their preparation for their Reading SAT.
Children may bring their own stationery in a pencil case, which can stay in their desk. They are old enough to be responsible for their own property. As they are the oldest children in the school, I expect them to set a good example to all those younger than them in everything that they do.
Please come and attend our ‘Stay and Play’ Maths Session on Tuesday 6th February 9:30am – 10:30am.
Maths Booster Club:
This will run for certain children on a Wednesday night after school. Those children that don’t have booster will have an allocated Maths time during the school day on a Thursday afternoon
Some children will be asked to come into school 5 minutes early on a daily basis to practise their handwriting.
All these children will be notified on the first day back to start on the first full week back at school.
Homework will continue as alternating weeks of English and Maths. If you wish to give your child more homework, I highly recommend the CPD book range for SATs revision! https://www.cgpbooks.co.uk/Student/books_ks2_sats_range
Please feel free to come and see me at any time and discuss any queries you might have.
I look forward to another hard-working term ahead.
