Welcome Back Year 6!

I hope you've had a lovely Easter break with your families and are now ready to get going again for our final term. 


This Term's Timetable:

Our hard work will begin each day with the essential skills - Maths, Reading, Grammar, Writing and Spelling. In the afternoons we shall be focussing on the non-core subjects - Topic, Science, Computing, P.S.H.E, Drama, Art, DT and P.E.

P.E will now take place on TUESDAYS and FRIDAYS. Remember to come to school in your P.E Uniform - PLAIN BLACK jogging bottoms/leggings/shorts; PLAIN WHITE polo shirt/T-shirt; trainers; and PLAIN BLACK/GREY/RED hoodie/jumper for warming-up in. Lessons will be outside (weather permitting).

You can find a copy of the weekly timetable in the ‘Files to Download’ section.


Homework Expectations

Each Friday you will be given 2 tasks to complete - one Maths, one English. These might be a written task or an activity on one of our educational websites - EducationCity, TTrockstars or EdShed. (You have been given your own personal login for all of these sites). The tasks will need to be completed by the Thursday of the following week. Any written work will need to be emailed to the teacher who set the work or uploaded to TEAMS. 

Reading is also a very important part of your weekly homework. Please make sure to read regularly at home. Those pupils who are still on the school's reading scheme will be heard read by a member of staff in school also.


Book Changing:

Once you have finished your reading book you can bring it into school to change on either Mondays or Thursdays only. This is so we can quarantine the books for 72 hours before giving it to someone else.


COVID-19 Prevention Measures:

It's extremely important that we all continue to do our bit to keep everyone in school safe.

Handwashing and sanitising will remain a big part of our school routine.

Your temperature will be taken before you enter school in a morning. 

Additional cleaning of tables, chairs and resources that cannot be quarantined, will take place throughout the day. 

Everyday resources such as stationery and books will not be shared. However, some resources will need to be used by different people throughout the week. These resources will be quarantined for 72 hours before being used by another person.

Windows and interior doors will be left open throughout the day to allow classrooms to be well-ventilated and to minimise the use of door handles.

Breaktimes will be staggered slightly to enable the main exits / entrances, cloakroom areas and toilets to be less crowded.

Teachers and support staff may wear face coverings whilst in lessons and around school. 


Please keep checking this webpage for updates and information. Parents and guardians will continue to receive emails and texts regarding whole school or urgent issues.

As usual, if you have any queries

just email me at hannahbours@castleprimary.co.uk

Stay Safe, 

Mrs Bours
