Welcome to Year 6! We are excited to take your children on an enriching learning experience throughout their last primary year. Throughout this final chapter, we will be looking at a range of subjects. This will include studying: volcanoes & earthquakes, the Georgians, electricity and many more exciting topics.
In addition to this, we have some unique opportunities that only Year 6 have the chance to partake in. These include: bikeability, life skills, week-long residential and the year 6 production to bring their primary journey to an end.
We are looking forward to making this year one the children will remember!
Year 6 have PE lessons on Mondays and Fridays and should come to school wearing PE kit on both days.
Year 6 Brass Group is every Thursday. Remember your instruments!
Home reading books are brought in every day to be checked and marked. Where possible please support children with homework and spellings – but please don’t do it for them! Although in Year 6, it is still important to hear your child read every evening (or at least 3x per week) if possible and sign their reading records .
Class books so far this year: Macbeth, A Christmas Carol
Spellings are based around the Oxford Owl spelling scheme. Every two weeks, we focus on a spelling unit and test the children on Friday. Children are given 15 spellings which focus on a Year 6 spelling rule and common exception words.
As we approach SATs, and in preparation for moving to secondary school, homework is set daily and focuses around maths, SPAG and reading. Homework is set from the CPG SATs revision guides. Please follow the Year 6 SATs homework timetable below to complete the daily homework tasks.
