Now that your child is in Upper Key Stage 2, please encourage them to take responsibility for their behaviour and learning and help them understand this is fundamental to their future at secondary school and beyond.
We would be glad to speak to you at a convenient time about any queries you or your child have throughout the year, please speak to the office to arrange an appointment/phone call.
The core priorities of the school this year are reading and writing.
Each term the children are set a curriculum challenge which is linked to the cross-curricular theme. Every lesson includes a challenge which the children strive to reach to extend their learning further. Weekly chocolate challenges are set in maths based on the week's learning. Children complete the task independently and one child is selected to win a prize.
Children can be selected to join the Maths Masters Challenge Club where they receive additional weekly problem solving activities.
Homework in UKS2
Due to current restrictions, children are expected to read and practise their spellings and times tables up to 12x12 every night.
Children may also wish to extend their learning beyond the knowledge organiser if they have a specific interest in the topic.
Please use the knowledge organiser as a starting point for any extra study. The information on these sheets should be easily recalled by the children once the topic is completed.

School uniform: white shirt / polo top, plain trousers / skirt, blue jumper / cardigan and flat school shoes.
P.E. kit: White t shirt, dark shorts and jogging bottoms, plimsolls or trainers and NO jewellery.
If your child cannot partake in PE, we expect to receive written confirmation of this unless the class teacher has already been informed previously.
Behaviour and Rewards
The children are expected to work towards our six golden rules which run throughout the school. These are:
We are kind, gentle, inclusive and supportive.
We listen carefully and follow instructions.
We look after property.
We respect and follow our school values.
We are safe and honest so everyone can enjoy.
We work hard to achieve and shine brightly.
Children are individually rewarded for good work, effort and behaviour.
Individual pupil names are added to the school praise book for English, Maths and Attitude to Learning.
Whole class rewards are negotiated between pupils and staff in each class every term. The children decide what they would like for a whole class prize.
