SATs 2018

Dear Parent/Carer,

We are very proud of the effort being made by most of our Year 6 pupils as they prepare for their National Curriculum tests (also known as SATs) and would like to thank you for the support that you are giving your child with their homework.  SATs week begins on Monday 14th May – Thursday 17th May, the timetable is given below.  The papers are externally marked and the results are returned to school in July.  Children’s reports at the end of year will give their results.  Writing assessments will continue to take place throughout the term and are marked and moderated by teachers.

To enable the children to come into school and feel relaxed before taking the test papers, we will be running a breakfast club each morning at 8.25am (children should arrive no later than 8.30am).  Children will be able to come into school and enjoy yogurt, toast, fruit and juice with their friends and then go up to class on time in a positive frame of mind. We hope that all the children will take advantage of this free special treat. The timetable for the week is as follows:

 

Monday 14th May English grammar, punctuation and spelling paper
Tuesday 15th May Reading Comprehension paper 
Wednesday 16th May Arithmetic paper

Maths Reasoning  Paper 1

Thursday 17th May Maths Reasoning Paper 2

 

Timings vary with each paper and to take into account different access arrangements for children.

Please ensure your child gets lots of rest and sleep this week to enable them to perform to the best of their ability.  They have worked hard this year and deserve to do well.

To help with organisation could you please indicate if your child will be taking their breakfast with us by completing the slip below and returning to the office by Friday, 4th May 2018.  I hope you will agree that this is a great way to start the day and look forward to sharing breakfast with our Year 6’s.

Please feel free to contact me with any queries.

Kindest regards,

Ms Mintram


Year 6—The Work of the Apostles

“’Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.’ Strengthened by this mission, the apostles went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it.”

This half term Year 6 will learn how the apostles changed when they received the Holy Spirit. They will reflect on the power of the Holy Spirit working in the apostles and think about how the Holy Spirit can help them today. They will learn about the character of the first Christian community and read about the special role that Peter and Paul played in spreading the Good News.

You could help your children by:

  • reading the story of Pentecost with them and discussing how the apostles changed
  • discussing what they have learned about the Holy Spirit and how they can apply this to life
