Helping your child at home

We will be sending weekly homework that supplements what we have been learning in class. Homework is sent out on Fridays and due in on Wednesdays. There will be spellings to practise as well as either a mathematics or literacy based task.

In addition to this, we recommend that your child reads regularly and practises their multiplication tables on Times Table Rockstars.

Trench Brothers

On Wednesday 17th October, a group of our Year 6s performed in the 'Trench Brothers' production at Brighton Dome.

Throughout three gruelling days of rehearsals, the children were exemplary ambassadors for Cradle Hill and truly embraced the whole experience. The production and artistic crew commented on how well the children behaved and remarked on how beautifully the children sang.

The Year 6 team were all so proud of the children's efforts. Broadway beckons!

Special thanks to Mrs. Vietiez for all of her dedication and expertise in teaching the songs to the children - the hard work certainly paid off!

 Harvest Festival

Year 6 will be performing a parody of the George Ezra song 'Shotgun' for the Harvest Festival. The lyrics can be downloaded here
