Welcome to Year 6 page, which includes all of the details to help you and your child know more about their year group. In Y6, we love to play, pray and learn together, focussing on consolidating our learning from previous and current year curriculum via a combination of practical, abstract and pictorial activities. In Year 6, we start to transition to encourage the children to be more fluently independent, in order to prepare them for when they move onto their respective high schools. Throughout the year, we focus on helping one another address misconceptions in order to better ourselves, as well as building our resilience to cope with our challenging curriculum. Additionally, the children have the opportunity to have increased responsibility in representing the school as prefects and council members, as well as setting a positive example for the rest of the children in the school with respect.
What will your child need to bring with them?
- In Y6 we do PE on Monday and Friday. PE kits should be brought in on Monday and then sent home on Friday to be cleaned.
- Healthy snack
- Re-usable water bottle
- Reading diaries. These are brought in on Friday and are sent home on Monday.
- Packed lunch (if necessary)
Traditionally in Year 6, the children have increased homework. They are expected to read for at least ten minutes every night. Additionally, they are expected to complete 15 games of TT Rockstars every week, to support them with their arithmetic. Additionally, they are expected to complete a couple of SATs companion activities or SPAG online activities every week. Finally, every two weeks, the children will be given 15 spellings to learn and practise. Homework will be set on Monday with the expectation of it being completed on Friday (with the exception of the spellings, which are always in for the following Friday).
