We will be having two PE lessons each week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These will be taught by our sports coach, Mr Wolfe.

It is very important that your child has a suitable indoor and outdoor PE kit with trainers. Please make sure that your child's PE kit is clearly named and they arrive to school wearing their PE kit. PE kit includes a white t-shirt, dark shorts or jogging bottoms, trainers and a Booth Wood fleece.


Children will receive two pieces of homework each week which will be linked to current learning in maths and English/grammar. They will receive this on a Friday and have a week to complete it and return. They should be able to complete it independently or with little support, but please encourage your child to speak to me if they have any problems. In addition to this, we ask that all pupils practise their spellings and times tables regularly and read at least 4 times a week.

Twinkl Spelling helps children to practise their spellings via simple online games.

Once your child has their login information they can access their online games via The class will be tested every Friday. The idea is that your child practises their spellings at home via the online 'Twinkl Spelling' resource as described above. If you do not have access to this, then please speak to the class teacher.

Times Tables Rock Stars is a wonderful maths resource for your child to learn and practice their times tables to improve fluency and speed. It is expected that all Year 6 pupils should know their times tables by heart and it impacts greatly on their ability to complete other types of maths questions. The fun online resource is incredibly effective and highly recommended. It has been thoroughly enjoyed by many previous pupils in Year 6.
