Welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 is a very important year in primary school. Not only are our Year 6 pupils in their final year, they are also role models to the rest of the school. Miss Flint, Mrs Potter and Mrs Hall look to Year 6 to set a positive example and lead the way.
In Year 6, we work hard all year. We want pupils to work hard, aspire to be the best they can and make a positive contribution. This means trying hard in every area of school life.
Every subject is important in Year 6 and we value a balanced curriculum. We ensure all pupils are well prepared for their SATs in May and are able to show what they are capable of.
This half term, we will be continuing with our topic, ‘A Child’s War’. We will learn about life during WWII and specifically, what life was like for children at this time.
In literacy, we are writing our own non-chronological report based on the animation ‘Pandora’. Our aim is to use a range of adventurous and technical vocabulary as well as high-level punctuation. We are also working hard to revise for the grammar and spelling test, as well as improving our reading comprehension skills.
In maths, we are revising for SATs, practising problem solving as well as trying to recap on the whole KS2 curriculum! Please let us know any area your children might need more support in.
PE is taught by our sport coach on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please remember kits!
Homework has been given out before the Easter holidays and should be worked on as regularly as possible. Bring files in on Thursday/Friday to look at in class. Spelling lists and times table facts should also be practised at home.
Year 6 is hard work, but we also strive to make it fun!
