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!

RRSA- The rights of children
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.
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 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!
