Thank you to those parents who attended the Year 6 Residential Trip Parents Information Evening on Monday 20th May. Attached below is the presentation used.
We have been working hard all year in preparation for the SATs test which are taking place the week beginning 13th May. Please ensure children are in school during this week to show off how hard they have worked this year and previous years at Ryvers.
Other events to look forward to during the summer term:
20/5/19 - It's Your Move with Wayne Dixon
w/b 17/6/19 - Sports Week
w/b 24/6/19 - Residential Trip and Day Trip to Thorpe Park
We will also be working very hard during the Summer term on our theme of Bollywood and Hollywood.
We are also very excited to to begin rehearsals for our Year 6 production! More information to follow!
History Off The Page!
A fantastic day was had by all! Children were immersed in the period of WW2. They learnt about school life as evacuee children and later set up shops, where they bought and sold items typical from that time period.
Thank you to all the parents who came along to play shopkeepers and stall holders!
Welcome to Year 6!
We are delighted with how the children have settled into the new term and are embracing the new topics. We have exciting learning opportunities planned so watch this space for updates!
Thank you to all the parents who attended the 'Meet the Teacher' meetings and we hope to get to know all the families well over the year.
Looking forward to a fantastic year!

Later this year we will be running a SATS Club. Letters will go out nearer the time.
On behalf of Year 6 we would like to welcome you to our page on the school website, and we hope you are enjoying the Spring Term as much as we all are. The children are working hard (as are all the adults) and we have already seen some great improvements in the quality of the work that we are all doing. In this particularly important term for the children (in the lead up to SATs), we will continue to maximise the children's learning through a wide variety of positive experiences and really rather splendid teaching!
During your child's time in Year 6, they will be expected to consolidate their grasp of a range of fiction and non-fiction texts. They will develop skills related to planning the key features of these texts, as well as practising their ability to write for a given length of time. Your child will also be expected to further develop the speed and accuracy of mental calculations to reinforce calculations as part of problem - solving tasks, as well as covering objectives related to Shape and space, Data Handling and Measurement.
Homework continues to be an essential part of your child's learning, and children are still expected to read every day and complete an English and Maths related activity each week. We have also sent home SATs practice books, which the children can use whenever they want, in order to practise the style of questions that they will have to answer during their SATs tests. We are, of course, more than happy to help children if they need further instruction before homework is due to be returned - homework should not be a cause of extreme anxiety! A SATs club will also be run on a Thursday afterschool for any Year 6 children who want to sign up - at this club, all of the Year 6 teachers, as well as Miss Fell, Miss Wetherall and Miss Hiron, will be available to assist with any problems the children may encounter during their SATs tests.
With the children moving on to secondary school at the end of Year 6 there will of course be the opportunity to participate in both a Leaver’s Production and a special Leaver's Assembly, both of which take place at the end of the Summer Term, and which we are already stealthily auditioning the children for. Both provide the chance for the children to spend time with each other and reflect on the good times they have had at Ryvers. We are also looking forward to the Residential/Activity week at the beginning of June, which will be a chance for the children to bond, and to enjoy a short relaxing break from the pressures of SATs.
Please feel free to contact us through the school should any queries arise - and don’t hesitate to speak to us at the end of the day, if you are waiting to collect your child.
The children will be working hard throughout this year, ensuring that they are ready for their transition to secondary schools in the summer. We are confident that they will have a successful and enjoyable final year at Ryvers!
Thank you to everyone who came to our 'Meet the Teacher' meeting at the beginning of the Autumn Term. Below is a copy of the Powerpoint Presentation which was shared. It contains key dates and information for the whole year.
SAT's Club and Other Revision
As well as the revision books which we have sent home, we are providing a SATs club that all children are welcome to attend. This club will run on Thursdays, from the end of school until 4.30. All of the children who participate will receive a drink and a snack, and will be able to revise key concepts and practise the style of questions which they will face during their SATs test in May.
Here are some revision websites to help you support your children at home
