Summer Term, 2021

Dear Parents, 

 

Please find below your child’s learning linked to our exciting Summer Term theme: Healthy Food; Healthy Planet.  I have also included an overview of the subjects that cannot be taught through the theme, including maths. 

 

How can you support your child’s learning?

Each week your child will have the following maths and reading homework to complete: 

 

  • Maths homeworkwill continue to be linked to MyMaths. MyMaths has tutorials linked to the homework given as well as fun games to practise mathematical skills. MyMaths is set every Thursday and is due on the following Wednesday by 5pm. Please encourage your child to complete their homework.  The children will be able to mark their homework straight away; if your child has scored below 70% they are required to try again.

 

  • Please encourage your child toread regularly at home(at least four times per week) and sign their Home-School Contact Book to acknowledge this (these books are checked by an adult every Friday. Children who have not had their record signed at least four times will miss part of their lunchtime to read in the classroom.If your child reads from our school scheme, their four reads mustbe from this school book and preferably they should be reading aloud to an adultat home as this will support their fluency. To support children in their love of reading, they can also choose books from school, home, the library or their online Bug Club account to enjoy. 

 

Maths Passports:

 

  • If your child has a Maths Passport target, it is imperative that they practise their targets at home as these mental maths skills will support them with all areas of maths in school and for their transition to secondary school. Targets, guidance sheets and links to online games can be found on the school website. 

 

Books needed! 

 

Our book shelf is always in need of new and exciting books to enthuse the children – if your child has finished a book from home and would like to donate it to our reading area it will be gratefully received! 

 

Save the date!

 

The children will be preparing a very special Leavers’ Production this term in readiness to perform on the afternoon of Monday the 19thof July (time to be confirmed). I am hopeful that with lockdown restrictions easing, you will be able to attend this special production. If we are unable to bring parents into school at this time, we will ensure that the performance is recorded for you to enjoy watching with your child at home.  I am also hopeful that we will be able to enjoy a Year 6 family BBQ or picnic on the evening of the 19thof July from 6pm; I will write to you closer to the time when I am able to confirm that this event is able to go ahead. 

 

Finally, if you ever have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via email, hawks@lydbrook.gloucs.sch.uk, or by phoning the school. 

 

Best wishes,

Mrs Hughes
