Year 6 homepage:

Hello and welcome to the Year 6 page. This page holds key information regarding Year 6 pupils as well as providing links for the websites and other information that may be needed. 

Year 6 Team:

Year 6 are very lucky to have a large team this year and what fantastic staff we have! 

Miss Stokes (6Believe) and Miss Tate (6Respect) are the class teachers this year with Mrs Cartledge supporting in both classes during the mornings. We also have Mrs Bramham supporting in class. 
On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, Mrs Wright will be working in Year 6.

Mrs Cornelia will be supporting Year 6 from home until she starts her maternity leave towards the end of November. 
We also two fantastic tutors who will be working will lots of groups of children: Mrs Boyall and Mrs Darley.

Mr Holt will be taking Year 6 for PE on Tuesdays too. 

SATs Test Information:

What are SATs in the UK?

SATs are tests administered by primary schools in England to children in Year 2 and Year 6 to gauge their educational progress.

They will also be assessed by their teachers on subjects including speaking, listening, writing and science.

 

In KS2 (Year 6), SATs are compulsory and children will sit official SATs in:

  • English Reading
  • English Grammar
  • Punctuation
  • Spelling
  • Maths

By using our Teacher Assessment, schools and the government are able to judge a child's performance in a subject over a longer period of time. This means that teachers are able to account for a child's whole knowledge and ability in a subject, not just that from a test environment.

Homework in Year 6

Homework will be set weekly for you to complete a piece of Maths and a piece of English work. 

Homework will be set on a Wednesday - starting from 16th September- and needs to be completed by the following Tuesday

Maths homework will be set on MyMaths. 

English homework will be set on Teams. 

What other homework does my child have?

This is what we expect your child to do:

> Read a minimum of 4 times a week, at least 4 pages at a time. It would be beneficial if you discuss what your child has read with them.

Complete your spellings to be checked on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

> To access TT Rock Stars and Spelling Shed at home. Children have their own passwords in their reading record.

We are mindful that your children will have an increase of homework in High School, so we are trying to prepare them for the demands they will face there. Therefore, as the year progresses, you will find that the workload of homework will increase.

Thank you to all parents and carers for your continued support in this.

P.E.

PE this year will be on a Tuesday with Mr Holt and a Thursday with Mrs Wright. You will need to come into school wearing your PE kit on a Tuesday and a Thursday; this is to help with reducing the amount of movement around the classroom etc. As the weather becomes cooler, dark coloured tracksuit bottoms are ok instead of black shorts. You should still wear a white T-shirt and can wear a school jumper over the top if it is cold. 

Please can you ensure that any earrings are removed in preparation for the lesson. If they cannot be removed, please teach your child how to put plasters over them.

Lunch

School dinners are £2.20 and funds must be added to your child's ParentPay account. If you do not have a log in then please see the office staff. 

Year 6 lunch time is between 12:25pm - 1:15pm.

Snacks

At the moment, it is not possible for us to serve toast during break times. If your child would like a snack at break, they need to bring fruit or a healthy snack to school with them. 

This Term:

This term, our priority for our curriculum is to ensure that we catch the children up with as much as we can based on the learning that they have missed during lockdown. Therefore, our focus will be mostly on English and Maths but the children will still receive a wide range of curriculum in PSHE, PE, Music, Art and Science.

 

In English, we are going to be completing a catch up unit based on – Of Thee I Sing by Barack Obama

The theme of this unit is ‘Keep Believing’ with a range of texts celebrating the achievements of inspirational people in response to Black Lives Matter. The focus of the unit is the recap of basic key skills from previous learning in Year 5 and the opportunity to apply these skills across a range of short writing tasks.  Skills that pupils may not have yet mastered have been built into the unit.  The unit provides an opportunity for an extended writing task as an outcome.
 

In Maths, we are learning about place value, ordering and comparing numbers and negative numbers. We will also be covering the 4 operations (additions, subtraction, multiplication and division) and finding the most efficient and accurate written method to work out different calculations.
