BELIEVING, LEARNING AND SHARING TOGETHER: From Monday, school will only be open for the children of key workers who cannot provide alternative child care arrangements any other way. Many families may have one parent keyworker and one that is not. There is an expectation from the Government that these children should be cared for at home. Please see the latest email / newsletter for further information. Remote learning pages will be updated on a weekly basis for children being educated at home.Log inHome Page

Throughout the year we are working on growing both our brains and mindsets. Have a look at the Class Dojo site and see how it can also help you to master your mistakes and create a growth mindset.
Year Six SATs Meeting for Parents
KS2 SATs 2020
This short video will explain how the KS2 assessments (tests and teacher assessments) work in Y6. The timetable is slightly different, reading is on Tuesday not Monday, whilst the grammar, punctuation and spelling tests are now on Monday.
The children are encouraged to undertake a regular programme of revision alongside their usual weekly homework tasks. This should be guided by information given to them individually through the children's individual strengths and areas for improvement discussed with Mrs. Pickup.
To help them along the way we have found some sites which they may find useful. Many of these are interactive and use brief tutorials or engage the children to use their knowledge through the playing of games. These should be used alongside Study Guides to help with their practise and revision.
Maths and English Practice- take a look at some of the sites mentioned below to help with your preparation for the KS2 SATs in May:
IXL have separate pages of skills linked to individual Year groups. The Y6 page has links to practise both English and Maths skills. Pages are then split into skills with a practise question for the children to think about.
BBC Education has produced a whole selection of materials for KS2. Follow the KS2 link and then select either Maths or English. Each area usually has an information section for reading, plus an activity and then quiz which is then marked online. Some aspects require a subscription.
Again these are “old style” Key Stage 2 test papers but are still useful for practise, and in particular, creating discussion around questions and strategies to answer. View on screen or print off for free.
