If your child does not have fruit provided by school, you can include some for them to have during the morning mingle. This should be a piece of fruit or some vegetables.
Please send your child to school with a filled and named water bottle.
Belongings from home should be kept to a minimum. Children should bring a coat, lunch box/bag, water bottle and can bring a bag (if necessary).
Your child should not bring in any additional items such as stationary, toys, jewellery or be wearing nail varnish.
Year 6 SATs Support
To help you prepare for our SATs assessments, follow the links to the websites we use in school where you will find lots of activities, examples and support for areas you would like to revise. We will also be sending home revision guides which the children will be expected to complete a few pages of weekly. We will catch up with the children in their weekly revision sessions and go over any misconceptions they may have.
Don't forget, we will add some videos on Seesaw and you have access to Spelling Shed, TTRockstars and can head to 'Hit the Button' to practise number bonds and times tables too.
