 Parent Planners 

Each term, before the children embark on their learning in a new topic, we send home a Parent Topic Planner explaining for parents and carers the learning opportunities across the curriculum that each child will receive. Teachers select and suggest useful websites and places to visit which will enhance and prepare the child for the topic they are about to start. There are also useful dates and a bank of topic words that families may choose to talk through with their children.

Year 6 Parent Planner Summer 2020

This parent planner is for information only as the school remains closed until further notice.  Please use the information on here and website ideas to assist you with learning at home, which should commence again on Monday 20th April. 

Education Pack 2, printed by our staff will also provide work for the first two weeks following the Easter break.
