Y6 have PE on Thursday. Children wear their complimentary Roby Park PE kit to school – white logo tshirt, navy joggers and jacket. In the warmer months, children may want to wear their burgundy shorts.
Children are allocated multiple books weekly on Rising Stars Reading Planet as well as a physical book which is changed weekly, linked to their stage of Reading. Physical books are changed every Monday. We expect children to read for 10 minutes every night and then to complete the end of book comprehension quiz online when they come to the end of their book. You can access Reading Planet here.
- Children are to read for 10 minutes per night and bring their reading log in everyday, signed by an adult.
- Spelling and times table home learning will be set on a Monday via Emile and should be completed by Monday.
Y6 SATs Companion
Your child has been registered to SATs Companion – an online tool to help with English and Maths. Staff will be using SATs Companion in school and to set homework. As a parent, you are able to see how your child is progressing through their account at any time. To gain access you should visit the website https://satscompanion.com and click on the login button.
Once your child has logged in for the first time, a help video will appear which shows how to use the system. If your child has been set any homework, it will appear in the Tasks area. Your child can also practice their Maths & English skills at any time through the Practice area. Once they have completed their work, both you and your child’s teacher can see how they have done. Should your child experience any problems whilst using the system, please click the blue ‘Share Feedback’ button on the bottom right hand side of the screen. This will allow them to send a message directly to us so we can deal with the feedback appropriately.
