Every week, we expect the pupils to complete their homework on the three Doodle platforms: Doodle Maths, Doodle English and Doodle Spellings (these will be called ‘Added Extras’ when logging onto these platforms.


In addition to Doodle, we expect the pupils to be reading at least 4 times a week and learning their weekly spellings. During the Spring Term, pupils will get the chance to take home some old SAT papers to practice. Please ensure these are back in school on Fridays where we will go through the answers and help address any misconceptions the children might have been having.

Early Bird Reading

Early Bird Reading takes place in both the Year 6 classrooms on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Please come and join us at 8.50 – 9.00 and listen to your child read. We have a special theme day on Thursday’s where the children get to read our ELS books. This half term, they are all centred around Climate Change, Electricity and Greta Thunberg.

School Diary

Pupils will be receiving a new school diary. This will be complete with important school information and can be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers. These diaries will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day. Please feel free to comment on the reading children are doing at home. We encourage all parents to make a note of children’s reading as prizes will be awarded at the end of each half-term.

Reading is Fundamental. In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be.

Reading develops the brain, provides a window into the world around you and helps you do better in all school subjects. We recommend that children are heard for at least fifteen minutes each night and notes to be made in their planners.
