You should have all received a letter or email about the upcoming events for Year 6 on the week beginning 13.07.20. Elfrida Primary will be giving out a Year 6 Leavers Booklet which will contain a collection of messages and pictures of your time at our school. Several pages will be have individual photographs of you. We would like you to write a short message that would accompany your picture. This can an inspirational quote, a favourite memory of your school years, a thank you to a particular teacher/teachers/TA's/other adults or a message to your friends. You can email this to me on the Purple Mash email or to the school email (please include your name). Alternatively, I could write down your message for you when I call your parent/s this week (of course if you are in school you will have an opportunity to do it there). If you have any questions please ring the school office.

For an extra challenge you can also think of suitable songs which can be included in the play or write a song of your own!
The best play seen will be used in an Elfrida production in the future. The successful writer will be given acknowledgement and there is a possibility of a prize!

Friday 10th January 2020
Welcome to the Spring Term and Happy New Year! Your children have made a good start this week and the majority of them have come back focused and ready to work hard this term. As you are aware the SATS are looming and it is very important that your children attend school everyday so as to not miss any of their learning. Today they have been sent home with a curriculum letter, a spelling list and their new homework books.
Please ensure that your children are reading daily. Ask them what they are reading in class and at home. It is also very important that they read a range of books not just fiction but non-fiction as well.
Your children received their new homework books today (100120). These include Maths, Reading and GPS. As usual, homework is due on Wednesdays. If your child needs help there is a Homework Club on Mondays and Tuesdays between 12.30- 1 o'clock. Additionally, Miss Dolphy runs a homework club on Tuesdays and Wednesdays after school.
It is very important that your children keep their old books as they are a very good revision resource.
