Welcome back! I hope you had a lovely Easter break and are now ready for Term 5.
End of Keystage 1 Assessments
This is the term of our End of KS1 Assessments (formerly SATs). The tests will take place during the week beginning Monday 13th May 2019. The children will complete 4 papers: Reading Papers 1 and 2, Maths Arithmetic and Maths Reasoning. The tests will take place first thing in the morning and the children will have plenty of time to complete them, taking breaks when needed.
Our lessons this term will be based around preparations for these papers, we will do lots of practice so the children are used to this style of work and gap filling activities for different groups of children. If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to approach me at the end of the day to ask.
In Literacy we will be writing persuasively, and basing our work around The Ugly Bug Ball and other minibeasts.
In Maths we will be studying fractions, measurement and time as well as recapping our knowledge of addition, subtraction and place value.
Robins will be going to Forest School this term- individual letters have been sent out.
Swimming lessons will commence on Thursday 23rd May 2019.
They will continue until the end of term 6. The sessions will take place at the Didcot Wave between 9.30am and 11.00am.
