Homework

You will be expected to use a variety of apps to support your learning throughout the week, including; TT Rockstars, Read Theory and Spelling Shed.

We will set additional Maths, English and spelling homework to consolidate our knowledge every Friday which is due in on Wednesdays.

And we will, of course, continue with the half termly Bingo homework.

As you are in Year 6 you are expected to be able to organise your time to ensure you get your homework completed.

 

P.E. and Swimming Kit

Your kit remains the same; black shorts, white t-shirt, suitable footwear and an Ardley Hill tracksuit. We will have PE on a Thursday.

For swimming you will need a one piece swimming costume or trunks, towel, flip flops or other suitable footwear, a swimming cap for long hair and a carrier bag for wet clothes.
