* Please be aware that our SATs assessment week will be the week commencing Monday 13th May 2018 *
Year 6 have their PE lessons on a Wednesday and a Thursday.
PE kits should be kept in school at all times, even on non-PE days, as things can sometimes change at short notice. Kits should be taken home at the weekend to be washed. Please see the Sutherland Primary Academy uniform policy for further guidance on PE kit items.
Spellings and Homework
Reading is incredibly important to your child's development. Children at Sutherland each have a banded reading book. Each time they read at home and get their diary signed by an adult, they are able to earn tokens which they can collect and convert in to additional Golden Stamps! If you would like any advice on questions that you could ask your child or books, please speak to Mr Hughes.
Golden homework is another great way to earn extra Golden Stamps! Homework tasks are handed out every two weeks and children can earn up to FOUR Golden Stamps for homework that is completed to a fantastic standard. Our current homework tasks can be found further down the page. It is good to get into the habit of completing homework tasks, in preparation for high school.
Busy Ant homework: This can vary from one to two pieces a week, and supplements learning during that week's unit. We strongly encourage children to complete this task on a weekly basis.
Spellings are handed out at the start of each half term in a booklet containing each week’s word list. These can be found further down the page. Spelling tests take place each Friday and we have a competition between the Year 6 classes to see which class can get the highest average score. Come on 6Y!
Thank you to all of the parents who actively support and encourage their children in reading and completing their homework- it will make such a difference to their progress.
