If you are working online, don’t forget to be safe and savvy! 

Never give personal information to anyone! Think about the safety of what you are sharing or posting if you are online or on your phone.

Do not share your school log-ins or change your log-in details. We won’t ask you to do that.

Make sure you are accessing online material that is relevant for your age and tell an adult at home if you come across something that is not suitable for you, or if someone is trying to contact/talk to you that is not someone you know.

You can contact your teacher through Seesaw if you feel vulnerable or worried, or contact Childline 0800 1111.

Curriculum News

 
English

We will continue to study ‘Danny the Champion of the World’ by Roald Dahl. The novel is about Danny, who thinks the world of his widowed father and is completely amazed to discover that his good, kind and clever father is actually a law-breaker! Together, they hope to pull off the most daring plan ever, and to exact revenge against the appalling Mr Hazell! The book will be the inspiration for us to write newspaper reports, diaries, instructions, summaries and recounts.

P.E.

I am delighted that our team of professional coaches will be leading Oak Class's PE lesson every Wednesday afternoon and the Year 6 teaching team will lead the PE lesson every Tuesday morning. For safety reasons, long hair should be tied back for PE and earrings either removed or taped over for safety (tape is supplied by school). It would be a good idea to check the weather forecast so they can dress appropriately (no football kits allowed).

 

Homework

Your child will be given two homework books and two pieces of homework will be set every Friday and they will need to return it by the following Friday. Your child should be reading every night for fifteen minutes and their library book will be changed every Wednesday. Remember to practise your spellings for the test on Friday.
