Welcome Back

07 Sep 2017

Hello everyone,

Welcome back and welcome to Year 6. We hope you had a fantastic time during the summer holidays.

6DG have had a fantastic first week. The children are enjoying our class novel, Wonder, and have started their new class books with lovely presentation.

The termly newsletter was distributed yesterday, including key dates and details of our timetable. Also, we have Parent pop in evening on Monday 11th September from 4pm - 6pm. Importantly, we are running a talk about life in Year 6 and transition to secondary school at 6:00pm in the canteen. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate in contacting me at dgirton@telferscot.lambeth.sch.uk

Reading, Spellings & Mathletics

29 Jun 2017

Hi Everyone

I hope you're all well and enjoying our glorious English weather! 

For the last few days we have been having a real push on reading and spelling as these have become a little forgotten as of late. You'll find that children are being given quite similar homework but this is in order to help them get into a better routine of reading every night and learning spellings more frequently. The last few results of spellings tests has been quite poor!

Please ensure that your child is learning spellings every night. These are words that are particularly important as they are part of the curriculum. 

We also need to make sure that children are completing their Mathletic tasks. Children can do a few minutes each night or opt to have a block of time within a week to tackle their challenges. 




Welcome Back... The Final Countdown

08 Jun 2017

Hi Everyone

Welcome back to our final half term. I trust you had a restful week off and are now ready to enjoy all the fun things that will be happening at school. 

In Year 5 our Geography topic is Volcanoes & Earthquakes, children will be exploring where these happen and why. We are also studying Anne Fine's Flour Babies and Bill's New Frock in English. We'll also be experimenting looking after our very own flour babies (I've already caught someone banging on their bag of flour with heavy fists!).

As always there are many events taking place and we will keep you updated with them as they happen. Here are a few dates to remember for your diary:

Friday 9th June - Dads Charity Cycle Challenge

Friday 16th June - International Day & Night

Monday 19th June - Careers Day

Saturday 1st July - Summer Fair

Have a great week!
