Year 6

Welcome to the Summer Term in Year 6!


Welcome back to the Summer Term. I hope you were all able to enjoy some relaxation over the last two weeks - and perhaps even some sunshine amidst all the rain! I look forward to hearing all about your activities during the holiday.


Year 6 has worked incredibly hard through Autumn and Spring, and now we are approaching the culmination of their time at Cedar Park with the upcoming SATs (week beginning 13th May) and the transition to secondary school.


Although school life is certainly not all about SATs, it is important that the children feel confident and well-prepared for their tests – we very much want them to approach them with a ‘bring it on!’ attitude. To support this, we will continue to provide Home Learning opportunities for the children to complete alongside our learning in school and will ensure that all children are aware of the processes involved in the test and are as comfortable as possible.


Of course, this term is also the term when the much-anticipated Year 6 Production takes place. We will soon be providing the children with the opportunity to learn parts, audition and then perform on stage – something many are very eager to begin!


The Summer Curriculum News, detailing our learning this term, will be available below soon. As you will see, we still have a lot of exciting learning to do.


We look forward to seeing you at the Production and Leavers events.


Best wishes,


Mr Spurway


Key Information


Our PE slots for the Spring term will be on Monday and Wednesday. The session on Monday will be Gymnastics in the Hall and on Wednesdays we will be outside for rounders. Just a reminder that earrings must be taken out for PE and we recommend not wearing them on days when there is PE.


This half term, the children will continue to have Home Learning on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We hope you will continue to support your children at home with these activities, as well as encouraging reading and the learning of multiplication tables. There continues to be a greater emphasis on spelling, punctuation and grammar in ALL areas of the curriculum so please encourage children to proof-read all their writing and speak in grammatically correct sentences.

Uniform - I remind you that Children are expected to set a good example and look smart at all times as the younger children look up to the Year 6s as role models. Hair should be tied back with plain hair ties and clips of a colour which blends in with school uniform. Ear studs are permitted but nothing else. School hoodies are fine to be worn in place of jumpers.


Pencil Cases - Pencil cases will not be required as equipment is provided for all children.


Finally, please continue to share any concerns you may have as it is important to us that your child is happy in school, especially during their final year.
