Choir Young Voices Online Resources

Dear Choir,

Congratulations on making such a positive start to Choir Club. Your enthusiasm has been fantastic and we have loved starting to get to grips with the vast array of music! You should now have a paper copy of the lyrics.

To practise at home, you can visit https://www.youngvoices.co.uk/music-room and type in the password: YV2021

This will give you access to the lyric videos as well as the fantastic dance tutorials.

Choir members who come prepared will be given extra house points!

Reading in Yr 6

Dear Year 6 parents,

 

We wanted to remind you of the high emphasis we place on home reading and homework in year 6.

 

As reading is at the very heart of all learning your child will do, both here and at secondary school over the next five years, we expect all children to read for a minimum of five nights and comment on what they have read to build vital skills of comprehension, and to help them engage with the book they have independently chosen. Such tasks also support their ability to create passages of their own writing, and to consider how to structure their responses.

 

In May, your child will complete an end of KS2 reading SAT paper which is long – one hour of reading three texts and answering questions about each one. Clearly, this requires quite a lot of reading stamina, and this is another reason that we encourage so much this year.

In addition, we have set all children up with access to the quick Read Theory programme which we have found invaluable in the last few years. We allow time for this in school but if your child can access this at home, their morning work can be spent on other skills, such as quick maths or handwriting / spelling practise.

 

We do appreciate your support with this as we strive to ensure your child makes the best possible progress they can this year.

Kind regards,

Mrs Thomas and Miss Clay

Year 5/6 Football Team

A HUGE well done to the Year 5/6 girl’s football team yesterday who won 9-0 in their match! Both myself and Mr Birch are so impressed with how you are improving and the effort that you are putting in. Unfortunately, in all of the excitement, we forgot to take a photo but we still want to acknowledge how proud we are!

if you would like to keep track of our league table results, then you can find them here http://www.grangeparkprimaryschool.co.uk/web/year_56_girls_champions_league/432692

Finally, it was so lovely to have parent spectators back at the game yesterday. Thank you for your support, I know the team really thrived from it. 

Keep it up girls!

Many thanks,

Miss Jones
