Usually at this time of year, I would be informing you about the forthcoming booster classes in preparation for the KS2 SATs, but due to Covid restrictions, these cannot go ahead as normal. However, there will be a greater emphasis on reading and writing not only in Literacy but throughout the whole of the curriculum. Extra Maths lessons will also be provided, to fill any gaps which may have resulted during the previous Lockdown. Our aim, as always, will be to ensure the children are fully prepared, not only for SATs but for their chosen secondary schools in September.
Some key themes covered this half term
We will also be studying, French PSHE and Music.
In the event of further school closures, we will endeavour as always to provide online teaching supporting all our children in the best way possible.
If there are any concerns or queries, then please feel free to e-mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I check my e-mails most days and will get back to you as soon as I can.
