Message from our Head Teacher

Welcome to Haydonleigh Primary School’s website and to a school where ‘I am talented, together we are amazing’ underpins our philosophy.

We provide a secure and happy environment where the work is varied and challenging and every child and adult is valued. We set the children and ourselves high standards to enable every child to develop his or her potential to the full and become confident learners.

All parents are very welcome at Haydonleigh, and we see home and school working together as very important for your child.

Our website will give you a flavour of our school’s aims, the activities that the children are involved in, the achievements that we have gained and the wealth of memorable experiences that the children encounter.

I hope you enjoy the website and if you'd like to visit the school, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Friday 20th March 

Dear Parents, Guardians and Families of Year 6 children,

We would like to take this opportunity to clearly communicate what we have planned for the children in these surreal and unfortunate circumstances so that everybody has a clearer understanding.

1) Every child has brought home a blank red exercise book with their purple mash and TT Rockstars passwords attached. Within this book, children are welcome to stick in printed tasks/completed work/photos of home learning etc. It is not imperative that they use this book but it is there if required.

 

2) Purple Mash - The link for this website is attached at the top of this webpage. When logging in, children will notice that they have been set some '2do' tasks which they can complete.  In addition to this, we have set up a class blog (found in the sharing section of the website) whereby children can upload any work and leave friendly messages to their classmates.

NOTE: The teachers will be regularly updating and monitoring their class blog. 

 

3) CGP revision books - Despite the SATS being cancelled, a good way for the children to improve and prepare for secondary school is to continue completing pages of the revision books. We will not be dictating which pages to complete and when therefore it will be the responsibility of the children as to how much they complete.

 

4) Website links above - At the top of this website page are a range of links that we feel will give children a plethora of activities to complete. 

We recommend that a timetable is created with your child so that they have some routine in their day. 

 

Finally and most importantly, it has been an absolute pleasure teaching this cohort of children and they have all worked extremely hard towards their SATS. In recent practice papers, the scores were fantastic and we are so proud of what they have already accomplished. We wish for every single one of them to keep their head held high, understand that their hard work was not for nothing and that this will 100% benefit them when they transition to secondary school. 

 

Thank you all for your co-operation and we wish that you keep safe and be united. 

We hope to see everybody healthy and well in the near future.

The Year 6 Team.

Spellings

 

Useful information

  • Homework is handed out on Monday and collected back in on the following Monday.
  • We expect every child in Year 6 to read for at least 15 minutes at home every school night. We also expect children to record this in their reading record. It is imperative in Year 6 that children are reading regularly in preparation for their SATS examinations and Secondary school.
  • All Year 6 children are expected to practise the times tables they are currently learning at home on Times Tables Rockstars. 
  • Year 6 children must practise their weekly spellings in their home spelling book five times per week.
  • In addition to the above, Year 6 children will usually be set a piece of separate English and Maths homework each week. Their projects will vary and will come with individual guidance. The general rule of thumb is that each piece of homework should take a minimum of 20 minutes.
  • If your child has anything they wish to discuss, please encourage them to approach their teacher first. In Year 6 we strive to achieve greater independence in preparation for Secondary School.  We operate an open-door policy and welcome parents and guardians to approach and discuss any concerns with their child’s teacher. Many thanks for your support in this busy academic year.
