As your child starts their journey in Year 6, they are on the verge of becoming young adults, developing inquisitive minds ready to question and challenge the world around them. We aim to encourage them to have a love of learning. Year 6 is an action-packed year, with many opportunities for the children to immerse themselves in much more than SATs. Our class page will keep you updated with what your child has been learning each year as well as links to how you can support them at home.
Autumn – Crime and Punishment / Our Wonderful World
Spring – Storms and Shipwrecks / Digging Deep
Summer – Ancient Greece Oddysey
Swimming (including cap) – Friday (Autumn Term only)
It would be useful for all children to have their own equipment in school. Useful items to have are as follows: pencil, ruler, small pencil case, glue stick, handwriting pen (black), highlighter, scissors, water bottle, home/school diary EVERY DAY – (these need to be signed by parents).
Children will be expected to complete homework on a weekly basis. Homework will be set on a Friday and will need to be returned to school by the following Wednesday at the latest. Tasks will mainly focus on Maths and English and will focus around key objectives which children should meet by the end of year 6. Children are expected to read daily in Year 6, both in school and at home, and to keep a log of their reading in their home/school diary.
Homework will also be set via Seesaw and use apps such as Spelling Shed, TTRS, Spag.com and Purple Mash.
