Year 6

Welcome to Year Six 

Welcome to Year Six. We have two Year Six classes that are taught by Mrs Young and Mrs Ellis and Miss Canham. Year 6 are supported by Mrs Johnsen

Our classes are named Pullman and Horowitz after the famous authors.  

We are going to be studying and exploring six exciting topics this academic year.

These topics will be explored through all aspects of the curriculum and have been chosen to ensure children develop and build on key skills in subject areas previously studied.   

These are:

Expectations  

Expectations will be high in Year 6.  Athe oldest children, we require them to set the example to the rest of the school, in terms of their appearance, behaviour and attitude towards school life.  They will be undertaking important roles and responsibilities around school and must work to be inspiring, positive role models to the lower years. 

Year Six are rewarded for both academic and social achievements through star of the week awards and dojo points, which are celebrated in our weekly assemblies. 

In May, all Year Six children will participate in end of Key Stage 2 Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs) in the areas of Mathematics, Reading and SPaG (spelling, punctuation and grammar).  This gives them the opportunity to display everything they have learnt during their time in Key Stage 2. 

Towards the end of the academic year, the children will be going on a residential trip where they will have the opportunity to experience a few days away from home whilst taking part in an exciting range of outdoor learning activities. 

 

Home Learning 

Children will be set both online and paper homework each week. This will consist of reading activities, arithmetic or reasoning practice, spelling and/or SPaG tasks. These will be recorded in children’s planners and checked by class teachers each week
