Important Information

PE (Physical Education) is a compulsory subject of the National Curriclum, at Rimrose Hope we support, promote and encourage a healthy lifestyle and deem this subject area extremely important, therefore we ask that you ensure that your child has a full PE kit each week (white polo shirt, maroon shorts and black pumps- please ensure that each PE garment is clearly labelled in pen with your child's name).

Home Readers

We have a reward system in each of the Year 5 and 6 classrooms whereby when the children return their home reading book with their planner signed they receive an Epraise point on the whole school online reward system. We encourage the children to read  5+ times per week. It is essential that you listen to your child read daily at home as past experience has shown that children who read at home daily make the most progress with their reading.


It is an expectation that children read their home reading book regularly and their planner is returned daily. The children will also be given Maths homework each Thursday and returned on Tuesday for year 6. Children in year 5 are given termly topic homework grids to complete one per week. The children are to bring their homework books in on Tuesday, work will be marked and sent home for Wednesday for the children to complete their next task. Parents and carers will be provided with your child's target at upcoming parents' evening.. In addition to reading and Maths homework the children will also be given spellings to learn weekly at home and will be tested in school the following week. It is important that you help and support your child working towards achieving their targets. If you are unsure how you can support your child please do not hesitate to speak to your child's class teacher.


Year 6 SATS 

What are SATs?

SATs (Standard Assessment Tests) are given at the end of year 2, 6 and 9. The tests in year 6 are more formal than in year 2 as the tests have to be sat on a specific day and are sent off to be externally marked. School will report levels to parents in their child's end of year report. 

Please find additional information for KS2 testing following the links below


Key Dates- Please do not book holiday time between these dates.

The KS2 (Year 6) SATs tests will commence on Monday 14th and Thursday 18th May 2018.

The examinations will take place during the morning sessions.
