## Request 12/7/17

  • Over the next few days, Year 6 pupils are going to embark on the challenge of reshaping and designing the pond area towards the back of the playground. To help with this, we would like to ask that children bring in a change of clothes, wellies (or similar hard-wearing shoes), as well as gardening gloves if you have any. Children should still come to school in school uniform. We will share photos of their completed work and work in progress so you can see the improvements they make.
  • Details of the Abbey service (Wednesday 19th July at 2pm) and our leavers assembly (Friday 21st July at 1pm) taking place next week can be found in the recent newsletters or on the website. At this stage however, we would like to request that you send in a baby photo of your child. It is tradition to show these pictures alongside a recent school photo during the final leavers assembly. If you are happy to send an actual photograph in, please do so, though a digital picture or even a photograph of a photograph will be fine too. If you wish to send a digital image, please email it to us at reveleigh@tewkesbury-primary.co.uk or gshaw@tewkesbury-primary.co.uk.

Learning support

Pupils can access most resources used in class through Showbie or their school email account. Pupils are encouraged to take their school iPad home with them to access these services via apps, but they are also available through any web browser.

Spellings are usually set each Friday and tested the following Friday. We have Mild, Spicy and Hot spellings and one Intense word challenge, relating to Y4, 5 and 6 objectives. Learn as far as you can. In class, we focus on Y6 objectives.

Maths and reading homework will be set on Friday and should be handed in by Wednesday. Useful websites and resources are shared with the pupils via email or Showbie.

English will be set on a unit-by-unit and will often be cross-curricular, taking in other aspects of our learning.
