Spring Term 2020
Welcome to our Y6 class for 2019-2020!
Welcome to the "Spring Term!"
We have lots planned over this term. Both classes in Y6 are working really hard towards our SATs in May.
Maths and English homework and spellings will be given out weekly on a Wednesday and needs to be handed in the following Wednesday.
Some children will be invited to attend a maths intervention club starting on Monday 20th January 2020. Those children who are invited, will receive a consent letter home.
Please encourage your child to read each night, children can then test themselves in school the following day (if they complete their book) using Accelerated Reader.
They are enrolled on accelerated Reader which provides comprehension quizzes. The results of these can be viewed at home.
Children use a software program called Renaissance Place at school. This program has a special feature called Renaissance Home Connect, which you can access outside of school from any computer with an Internet connection. Renaissance Home Connect is fun and easy to use. It allows the teacher, and you to share information about children's progress in Accelerated Reader. You can log in to Renaissance Home Connect from any computer with an Internet connection and compatible browser. Children have been given their user names and passwords. To log in to Renaissance Home Connect Website: https://Ukhosted102.renlearn.co.uk/2236540/HomeConnect
