Dear Parents and Carers,
Another busy week of learning has flown by! In our THINK Worship this afternoon it was lovely to hear how the children are showing the values of Truth, Honesty, Inspiration, Necessity and Kindness. One of regular visiting teachers commented on the strong sense of kindness and support the children show towards each other.
Well done to our Year 6 children who have worked extremely hard during a special ‘Test Your Knowledge Week’ where they have had a chance to experience what the end of Key Stage 2 SATS tests will be like. This year’s tests are in May, which seems quite far off, but they will come around quite quickly. With this in mind, the weekly timetables for Arundel, Bodiam and Cowdray classes will be changed so that the Year 6 children can have some focussed revision sessions on a couple of afternoons a week, whilst the Year 5 children can continue their learning as normal.
A revised P.E. timetable for the whole school is attached.
As part of the revision process, the Year 6 children will be bringing some home learning tasks to be completed. These will be in addition to the normal expectations of regular reading, spelling practice and spending some time on Times Tables Rock Stars which all of the children have. The teachers also enjoy seeing what home learning tasks the children choose to do from the menu of challenges. These have a ‘Creative’ theme for this half term. The Home Learning expectations for EYFS and Year 1, Year 2, Years 3 and 4 as well as Years 5 and 6 are attached.
