Our curriculum has undergone lots of exciting changes.
Each half term you will receive an overview of what we will be learning on ClassDojo.
Overviews for the whole school year can be found by following the link on the right hand side of the page.
Children should be accessing Timestable Rockstars daily as this will help them with their fluency and recall. This can make a huge impact on their arithmetic results.
Pupils will be given spellings to learn each week and they will be tested on this in school.
Pupils should read their allocated book daily and this should be discussed with someone at home. We also encourage all our children to read a range of different texts at home as well as their school reading book, this might include things like the newspaper, comics and graphic novels. We want all our children to develop a love for reading.
If pupils would like to access any other homework, they should use the links on the right.
Please ensure that your child has the correct P.E. kit in school. All kit should be named and kept in a labelled bag to be left in school. It is advised that the children bring their P.E kits in on Monday and should be taken home on Friday to be washed.
We like to encourage physical fitness here at Primrose Hill. Every day we take part in a DAILY MILE run using our excellent outside facilities!
Children have access to a small bottle of milk during the morning session. Children are also allowed to bring in apiece of fruit to eat at this time. Throughout the day children have a water bottle labelled with their name. They can have access to this throughout the day.
If you would like to discuss anything further or have any questions regarding what is being covered in Year 6 then please contact the office or send a message through ClassDojo to make an appointment with the class teacher.
