Welcome back to a new term, we hope you have had a lovely Easter! We have a busy term ahead of us so we hope that the children are well rested and ready for their final term at Elston Hall! The first four weeks back will be continuing our preparations for SATs tests, this will include teaching test skills and using past test questions to develop children’s confidence in order to achieve their very best. We will also continue to focus on developing our writing skills across a range of texts including short stories, persuasive texts and letters.
For more details about our learning this term click on the Summer Term Curriculum Overview.
SATs will take place the week beginning 14th May 2018 – it is vital that children attend school this week. We will be running a breakfast club for all Year 6 children during this week where cereal and toast (with jam!) will be provided. We find this helps children to relax and prepare for the day. Breakfast club will run from 8:15 every morning; look out for an invitation letter sent separately. Below, we have listed the days that the children will undertake the tests:
After SATs, we will continue with our writing but also have some fun activities and projects planned. These include an Apprentice style competition and rehearsals for our end of year play.
During the week beginning the 11th June, some of our children will be heading off to Brecon Beacons on our residential trip. Please could we request that all monies be paid by 25th May 2018. If you are not sure how much you owe, please get in touch and we will let you know. We will soon send out further information on the finer details on the day of departure and return and which half of the week your child will be attending.
