Milton Hall Primary School

‘Dream it, Believe it, Achieve it.’


Our aim is to make every child feel valued and happy because that is when learning is most effective.


Welcome back to the new school year, we hope you had a lovely summer break and are ready for the last part of your journey at Milton Hall! We will be learning all about the Ancient Greece this half term and reading Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief in class. Watch this space for more of our fantastic learning.

smiley Welcome to Wilberforce smiley

Your Learning team are Mr Mills and Mrs Coleman



Our PE days are:  Monday (outdoor) and Friday (indoor)


In Wilberforce we have very high expectations of behaviour.  You should aim to have green cards by the end of the week which transfer into points which can be spent on the Good to be Green trolley or saved up for a trip to Adventure Island.  Yellow and red cards are given out if behaviour is not of the high standard that we expect. 



Please make sure you have the correct uniform.  The only jewellery that is acceptable is a pair of stud earrings and a watch.  All other jewellery must be removed for school.  All jewellery must be removed by the children themselves for PE.  Jogging bottoms are for PE and children should be wearing school trousers at other times.  Girls may wear leggings under a skirt but not on their own.  Children may choose to wear a green fleece, jumper or cardigan in the winter.  Please remember that we have a pre-loved uniform shop every Friday that sells items of second hand uniform for between 50p and £1.  Please refrain from wearing football shirts during PE lessons as they are expensive.



If you are worried about something to do with work (or anything else for that matter) then please come and speak to us - we want you to be happy in school and if we know about your problem then we will try our best to help you.  Remember - if you don't tell us then we can't help you.  If you don't feel comfortable talking to us then any member of the year 6 staff or the learning mentors will help you.



At Home:

A reminder that homework is set on a Friday and includes: maths practice which is now set online using and a piece of literacy work that may relate to our topic. MyMaths Homework is due in without fail on the following Friday and English homework is due in on Wednesday.  If you are struggling with your homework then it is best to do it as soon as you get it so that you can ask us for help. MyMaths provides lessons alongside the homework to help pupils who are struggling. Children who repeatedly fail to complete homework will be referred to SLT - in Year 6 it is vital that homework is completed as it trains you for secondary school where late homework results in after school detentions!  The school runs homework club so if you are struggling to find the time to get it done then you can come along and have some time and space to concentrate.  

We also have our suggested family learning opportunities including STEAM, we have previously seen some wonderful and creative pieces of work and hope you will join in with your child.


Later in the year as we build up to SATS you will be expected to complete nightly revision homework.  This will be peer marked every day and the teachers will randomly spot check your work throughout the revision period to check that you are doing your work.  If you are struggling with any aspect of the revision you will need to alert your set teacher immediately so they can go through this with you - the whole point of revision is to remind yourself what you already know and to clarify things that you aren't sure about!


Reading records must be handed in daily recording what you have read and ideally be signed by an adult who has heard you read.  You should be reading 30 minutes every day including weekends and holidays.  This is part of your homework!  If there is any vocabulary that you do not understand please write it down in your reading record and look it up when you come into school.  Remember to quiz on Accelerated Reader when you finish your book so you can earn as many points as you can towards your next prize.


Times tables should be learned each night if you do not already know them - they are so essential in your maths and pupils can now use our new online resource times table rocks stars to help them.
