What an amazing time we've had at Hothersall Lodge!
All of the children have been amazing; confronting every challenge with determination and a great big smile on their face.
Throughout the week, we have enjoyed a number of exciting activities including: canoeing, climbing, orienteering, archery, mountain biking and team challenges, as well as some fun evening activities. We also enjoyed a lovely walk to Malham Cove, Gordale Scar and Janet's Foss.
The food was delicious, with plenty of choice for everyone. The children also had a great time spending their money at the tuck shop!
Everyone (including the staff) had a wonderful time because of the fantastic behaviour, attitude and resilience of the children. So a big THANK YOU and massive well done to every single child!

Welcome to Year 6 (Beech)
Below you will find a few pieces of information that you might find useful. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me, either before school or at the end of the school day or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Homework - Homework is a key part of learning in Year 6 as it helps to embed skills we have been learning in class. Weekly English and Maths homework will be set and due the following week. I would appreciate your support in encouraging your child to complete their homework and ask for extra help, if they need it, before it needs to be handed in.
Reading - In order to continue to make good progress, it is very important that you continue to listen to your child read regularly. We will also listen to your child read as much as possible in school, so please ensure that your child has their reading book with them each day. When your child has finished their book, they will be responsible for changing it themselves by selecting a book that they have not read from our reading book library. The children will also be given lots of other opportunities to read and share books in class and are encouraged to read a range of texts including class library books, books from home, and other texts that interest them.
Spelling – Each week, your child will be given 20 spellings to learn at home. They will be tested on 10 of these the following week and new spellings sent home that day. All children will also be given a laminated list of spellings that children in England are expected to be able to spell by the end of Year 6. Supporting your child in learning these as much as you can at home will help them to make good progress. This is especially important in preparation for SATs and final writing assessments, which heavily rely on children being able to spell most words from the year 5 / year 6 spelling list correctly.
Times tables - In order to improve instant recall of multiplication and division facts, your child has been given a log in for Timetable Rockstars to help support them in their learning. It is a national expectation that all children have a secure knowledge of the 1-12 times tables, so it is important that children are prioritising any tables that they do not know!
