As we continue our build up to SATs we will be doing more Maths and English in the afternoon to support our revision. However, once SATs are over and done with (Hooray!) we will focus more on our writing and our foundation subjects. We will be looking at The Egyptians in History, Evolution in Science which will link to our Chester Zoo Trip and Changes in the local area in Geography. We also have lots of treats and trips to look forward to as well as our High School Transition Days.

In Year 6 children sit their Sats, which are tests all Year 6 children in England complete. These tests are important, but we don't want anybody to worry about them.  They are a long way off and when they do arrive we will be fully prepared and ready to try our best!

If they can't remember these or you would like a copy of all of your child's passwords, please see one of the teachers. 


If you have any questions, please contact the school office and one of us will give you a call back.
