Miss Jones & Mrs Baigent
Bikeability Week next week: bring helmets and appropriate clothing for the weather daily (see email)
PE Kit: Friday
Reading: Daily for 20-30 mins. All children have now got a fiction which should be logged in their Reading Record. If this is completed, remember to comment on it using a Bloom's question from the wheel at the back of your record. We have launched our Autumn Reading Challenge (see bottom of page) and many of the children are also beginning to work on this too - if you complete a challenge a week you will easily achieve your 25 house points!
Maths: We have daily practice books which are being used in school to keep skills fresh. The children have brought these home to are with you this weekend and can spend some time completing any unfinished pages from 'Week 1', correcting any mistakes and/or having a go at 'Week 1, Day 5' which we ran out of time for! Please don't spend any more than 30-40 mins on this unless you wish to.
Preparation: Next week is the deadline to apply for roles and responsibilities for the year ahead. Have a read through the list below and make sure you have done whatever you need to in order to be in with a chance:
House Captains: Video presentation (maximum 1 minute) introducing yourself and persuading your house to vote for you as the strongest candidate, emailed to Miss Jones via the school office by Wednesday 23rd
School Librarian: Letter of application stating why you think you would be suited to the job and what makes you want to do it & a separate book review, to Miss Jones by Friday 17th
Play Leader: Letter of application stating why you think you would be suited to the role and what makes you want to do it & an explanation of a game idea you could run with the younger children, to Mrs Baigent by Thursday 16th

We discussed the home learning expectations for the year (see curriculum newsletter at the bottom of the page), our focus on independence and responsibility, underpinned by the Prefect status (see inside Reading records), and shared an Internet Safety presentation (click here and scroll down), which led into our new class e-safety charter (see bottom of page).
Year 6 have designed their new 'Successful Learners' display for the year ahead. They thought about the qualities that would be most beneficial in preparing them for success in Year 6 and their secondary transition. They are already demonstrating many of these qualities!
Welcome to Year 6!
I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday and are ready and raring to start your final year at Langrish! We are looking forward to having you back and hearing all about what you have been up to. Remember to check your passport (copy attached below) to see that you have packed what you need and can start the year prepared to succeed. See you on Monday!
