Year 6 – Dickens and Shakespeare


You've done it!!!! Well done on completing your end of KS2 tests, Year 6. Miss Prothero and Miss Huxtable cannot say enough how proud we are of all the hard work and effort you have put into revising and doing your best on each test day. 


Today's Street Party was a great success. Thank you to Year 6 for helping to tidy away and generally setting excellent standards for all other children at Holyport to follow.


There are still a few spaces left for Bikeability if you wish to join. This will run on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, allowing for Swimming to still go ahead on the Thursday.


Out of courtesy, we wanted to let you know that tomorrow, Monday 21st May 2018, Shakespeare class may be working with the SQA (Scottish Qualifications Authority) with trying out a few reading comprehension questions for future SAT papers.   This should only take 10 mins per child and will be supervised by school.

Key Information


Homework is handed out on a Friday and due in on a Wednesday.

Spellings are handed out on a Friday and tested the following Friday.

If possible, all homework will be made available on our class page. There may be exceptions if handing out photocopied documents. Children can ask for a second copy if it goes missing, but we are encouraging the children to take responsibility for their work as they will be expected to do so at Secondary School.


Classwork - Week Beginning  21/05/18

English - For the four mornings, we plan to have a real focus on our writing, in order to assess the children's writing to date. Each child has a portfolio of neat, assessed writing which is deemed to be their best work. This week, we shall be writing a newspaper report based on the KS2 tests, followed by some writing based on an atmospheric video which will be revealed on Tuesday - it is sure to be an exciting week of wonderful writing. smiley


Homework (18/05) - 

As explained to the children, we wish them to have a restful and enjoyable weekend (watching the wedding possibly!)

For their writing on Monday, we would like them to bring in any news items/newspaper cuttings relating to SATs and/or a selection of quotations from friends and families about the tests and their opinions on them or testing in general. This will help to give the children some extra input for their reports, as well as recounting the events from last week in the third person. They need not spend too long on this, and it will be due on Monday rather than Wednesday.



If your child needs a hard copy of homeworks, do let us know and we will be happy to make these available. 


Thank you for viewing our year group's page! smiley Miss Huxtable & Miss Prothero
