Welcome to Year 6! Undeniably, your last year of Primary School is the very best, and we have so much to look forward to this year! They will have created many memories throughout their time with us and during this year they are being prepared to leave us and make smooth transitions into secondary school.
In Year 6, our children take on the lead roles in our Pupil Parliament as Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister.
In addition to their responsibilities, Year 6 is also an important year which reflects on their knowledge and skills gained throughout their time in primary school, as in May they sit their SATs. Every member of staff is here to help you to get the very best out of Year 6. We can’t wait to see what this year brings.
We will be covering some exciting topics this year focusing on the key question ‘Is It Fair?’ We step through time from ‘Past’, to ‘Present’ and onto the ‘Future’ in each term this year. In Autumn we will focus on the past. We will start by looking at the Stone Age to Iron Age and then link our topic to Remembrance Day and focus on WWII.
on Friday afternoons. Please ensure that your child brings their PE kit in.
Homework: given out weekly on Friday and due in on the following Wednesday. A paper copy will be given out but it will also be available on Teams. In can be submitted on paper or via Teams. There is also a weekly assignment on Spelling Shed.
REMINDER: Please encourage your child to read daily. It is still extremely important, even in Year 6, to read. This will help your child develop their comprehension skills and broaden their vocabulary. Please remember to sign your child’s reading record to show you have heard them read.
