Transition information for King Arthur's School

Message from King Arthur's about the homework set.

We hope that you have received the transition booklet and your child is enjoying working through  the activities. Please keep the booklet safe so they can bring it with them when they come to King Arthur's.

We hope you are enjoying the lessons on our webpage. The students can keep this work safe and bring it with them on their first day to show their new teachers. If there is something they are particularly proud of, please send a copy or an image of it and we will show case some on our school website.

We are sure your child will have liked watching the video clips from our year 7 and 10 students. We have  also put up a virtual tour of the school which they will find supportive to them.


Home Learning for week beginning 13th July 2020


Hi Milky Way Class,


I hope that you are all well. Can you believe it is already the last week of term?


It has been great to see the work you have been doing about Space.Don’t forget to keep me updated with how you’re getting on. Our class e-mail is - it's always great to hear from you and see the fabulous work you have been doing.


The final weeks of term will continue with the space theme. The planning for this week is uploaded below along with the other resources you may need. There is also a mindfulness colouring page and wordsearch if you didn't complete them last week.


For Maths, there is a lesson for each day following the same format as last week. Remember to watch the video then apply what you have learnt to the range of questions on the worksheet. If you find them a little tricky, just try your best and do what you can do.


We will be continuing practising spellings from the spelling frame website  This weeks' focus is rule 55 – continuing to look at words in the Year 6 spelling list. Some of these words are rather tricky so think carefully about which parts of the word are hard to remember and try to find a way to help you spell them. There is a full list of the Year 5/6 spellings below for you to refer to.


For reading comprehension, you will have three separate activities this week; see the attached PDFs below. Make sure you continue to spend 20 minutes each day reading independently. This could be from a fiction or non-fiction book or even from a webpage!


Please try to keep practising daily on Times Table Rockstars as we all know how quick recall of our multiplication facts helps in so many other areas of Maths. Visit to play. If you have any issues with logging in, please do let us know via email.


Take care and keep smiling

Hope to see you Thursday at 11.30 for our picnic and rounders game.

Welcome to Milky Way Class!

Take home task:

Hand in date: 



This term our PE days will be Monday and Wednesday.  Please ensure that the children have all of the correct kit in school on this day and that long hair is tied back.  Could children also please have both trainers and daps as part of their kit so they have the appropriate footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE. We do not allow the children to wear earrings for PE so please can they be removed on these days or taped over.  It would be appreciated if P.E. kits could be kept in school throughout the week, as there may be other opportunities where P.E. kit is required.


Numeracy and spellings:

Numeracy homework and spellings will be given out on a Friday and due in/tested the following Wednesday. Your child should be able to complete this work independently as it will be based on work they have already done in class. Please do not hesitate to speak to us if you have any concerns.

It is also beneficial if all children regularly practise their times tables facts in order to improve speed of recall. Times Table Rockstars is a great resource to support this and it can be accessed on laptops and tablets at home. Times table recall remains a focus this year and children will be tested weekly through ‘Times Table Olympics’ to ensure that recall is quick and accurate. (No counting up on fingers allowed)


We are also encouraging all children to read at home; this needs to be recorded into the children's reading records. It is very important for the children to read regularly and understand their reading so that they can take the Accelerated Reader quizzes within school. When your child gets 85% or above in these quizzes, they are rewarded with a star which is put onto a class chart. We are aiming for 100 stars so that we can have a class treat!

We will be adding photos, news and pieces of work regularly to this page so make sure you come back soon.

Thanks for visiting.
