Year 5 Picnic

Dear Year 5 Parents,

On Monday afternoon we would like to celebrate the end of the year (and achieving our marble treat) with a picnic and games on the field. Please can you send your children in with a light lunch and some picnic food to share. Can the boys please bring in savoury and the girls sweet food. Please remember our ‘no nuts’ policy.

We wish you a lovely summer!

Homework in Year 6

Dear Y5 Parents/Carers

We are very excited about your children joining us in Year 6 in September and we are sure your children are looking forward to knowing what their homework schedule will be from September!

Looking ahead, to help your children progress in year 6, it is expected that your child will complete homework each week from a carefully selected range of text books. You will need to make sure that your child has the correct books for the start of year 6, so that they can make a good start to the year. 

For English homework they will need two books: CGP KS2 English SAT Buster Grammar Book 1 and CGP KS2 English Comprehension Year 6 Targeted Question Book, Book 1. For maths, they will need a Schofield and Sims Mental Arithmetic book.  These come differentiated from Book 1 to 5 to provide regular fluency practice based on your child’s current attainment level.

We will buy these books as a school because we are able to purchase them at a reduced price. Please pay £5 online to cover the cost by the end of Term.  

We look forward to working with you and your children.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Puddephatt and Miss Doncow


Dear Y1-6 Parents/Carers

Please could you send your child in with an empty, named reusable plastic or canvas bag so that we can send home work/books at the end of term.

Thank you.

Y6 Assessments

Dear Y6 Parents,

A few parents have asked about the scaled scores and raw scores given on the results sheets you were sent yesterday.  

In writing, based on your child’s writing throughout the course of the year, Miss Doncow and I have graded your child either as working below standard, towards standard, at standard or at above expected standard.  In science, we can only either grade your child as working at standard or has not met standard.

In reading, grammar/spelling and maths, the papers which your child sat in May, the KS2 test information you have been given contains a raw score (in reading, this is out of 50 total marks; in grammar and spelling, this is out of 70 total marks, 50 for grammar and 20 for spelling; in maths, this is out of 110 total marks across all three maths papers) and their scaled score.  If you child achieved a scaled score of 100 or above, they are working at expected standard.  If they achieved a scaled score of 110 or above, they are working above the expected standard.  The highest scaled score the Standard Testing Agency will award is 120.  This is for children who dropped very few marks in their papers.  Your information sheet will mark any scaled score of 100 or above as meeting standard, it will not say whether they are working at above expected standard.

We are very proud of the achievements of the Y6 children in their End Of KS2 assessments this year and very proud of the effort that they put into achieving these results throughout the year.  We would like to thank you all for supporting and guiding your child both academically and emotionally through this challenging year.

If you have any other questions, please let Miss Doncow or myself know.

Best wishes,

Judy Puddephatt
