Year 6 Newsletter

Welcome back, we hope you have had a restful Easter break. This term will be a very busy but important one for us in Year 6. This half term we will be focusing on preparing the children for the forthcoming SATs. The second half of the term we will be ensuring that the children are ready for the transition to high school.

Please keep checking the weekly bulletins, school Facebook page and ParentMail, as there will be lots of important updates and letters being sent out for our Year 6 children. We are planning a fantastic celebration for the children at the end of the school year!

SATs

There will be a SATs workshop for parents on Friday 3rd May at 8:30. It is important you attend to understand the SATs fully. The children will be sitting their statutory end of key stage tests, during the week commencing 13th May 2019. Attendance during the run up to SATs is of the upmost importance, as is punctuality. Children will come in at normal time during SATs week. Further information will be given nearer to the time.

Homework

Children will continue to have SATs revision books for both Maths, spelling and reading as homework. Thank you to those parents who have supported their children in completing some of the interactive homework. We look forward to seeing the homework tasks for this half term.

PE

PE will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please make sure your child has a PE kit in school. The PE kit should be a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps. Also on these days please ensure children remove earrings and that long hair is tied back. This is part of our PE policy due to health and safety. It is important your child brings in their PE kit at the beginning of the week and I advise that as your child is getting older, they take it home with them on a Friday so it can be cleaned ready for Monday.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to guiding the children through their final term at LCP!

Dear parent and carers,

On Thursday, 6 June our wonderful friend and treasured colleague Mrs Sadia Ahmed passed away.

Sadia was the life and soul of our school and she leaves behind a huge hole in the heart of Longsight Community Primary. Sadia was an amazing teacher and her children are a testament to her determination that all our children achieved their potential.

She was a wonderfully kind, open-hearted friend whose sense of humour still make us smile now even while we are all grieving. I know she welcomed all parents with open arms and that you will all miss her as much as we will. Please talk to your children about Mrs Ahmed as I know they may have questions. A book of condolence will be open this week for you to share your messages and memories.

We are heart-broken for the life not yet lived, but grateful for the life she did live. Rest in peace our beloved friend.

Mrs Rukhsana Ahmed and all the staff and friends of Longsight Community Primary.
