Year 6 Weekly Update – 7/10/22

Dear parents/carers,
We have had another excellent week of learning and we have been impressed with their attitude and learning. Next week we will be having our first round of SATs mock practice tests, the timetable for next week is:
Autumn 1 SATs mock test timetable
Monday: Spellings (20 minutes), Arithmetic (30 minutes)
Tuesday: Reading (1 hour), Reasoning 2 (45 minutes)
Wednesday: SPaG (45 minutes)
Thursday: Reasoning 3 (45 minutes)
These papers will then be separately marked and the scores will be sent home and shared with you the following week. The slip will show what mark your child received for each paper along with the pass and greater depth mark for each paper.
From Monday 10th October we will be encouraging the children to bring in items for the Harvest Festival which we will display in our classrooms on our prayer table. October is also one of the Months of Mary, please can your child bring in their rosary beads for the Hail Mary we will be saying every day this month.
Just a reminder that on Friday 14th October we have our Mexican cooking workshop. Thank you to those parents that have volunteered to help already, we will be in touch shortly. We are still in need of some more volunteers for each class so if you think that you are able to help support us with this then please email the office as soon as possible. Thank you to those parents that have already paid on parent pay, please could you ensure that you have paid for your child on parent pay.
