Welcome to Year 6

This is a very important year for our children.  They will draw on all the skills and knowledge they have learnt in previous years. We aim for our children to become mature individuals who can take on more roles and responsibilities around school.  In year 6 they have the opportunity to become prefects and the pupils in the rest of the school vote for a Head Boy and Head Girl.  In Year 6 we also start transition,  helping our children to prepare for secondary school.

For more information about the learning in Year 6, please see our class newsletter or the Curriculum page of our website.

Curriculum

RE

Throughout the year, we will be teaching about Revelation, The Church, Celebration and Life in Christ. We aim to engage and equip our children with the knowledge, understanding, skills and belief to be good citizens within the local and universal community, drawing inspiration from Divine Revelation, including the whole world around them.

English

Year 6 will be writing a variety of texts throughout the year.     

They will be producing writing of a wide range of genres.

Vocabulary will continue to be a big focus. We will be learning a variety of new words and their meanings in context, including how to spell them 

We encourage a wide variety of reading, both in class and at home. Reading and understanding challenging texts, at speed, is a skill that we will be working hard on. Reading opportunities for the children will include: whole class guided reading, class novel, topic book reading and home reading. 

 

Maths

In mathematics, we will be building on the skills taught in previous years. To become fluent in the four operations we will be practising daily with whole numbers, fractions and decimals. Speed when completing these calculations is vital! To be able to do this, children must be confident with their times tables.

Homework:

Accelerated Reader

  • Each child in Year 6 is expected to read every day. Each child is  reading at a level that is appropriate to them, after testing in school. Once they have     completed a book they will be asked to take a ‘quiz’ in school. The expectation is that they will quiz at least once a week, no matter what level they are reading at.

Times Table Rockstars

  • Every child is able to log on to this website from home which is a fun way to help children practise their times tables. We expect children to practise each day for around five minutes. Little and often has been proven to be more beneficial in remembering tables. Our expectation is that they will complete a minimum of 35 minutes each week.

   

PE:

Our PE days this half term are Monday and Thursday.

The topics being covered this half term are Tennis, Cricket and Rounders.

 

Children should wear their PE kits to school on their E days. No jewellery is allowed.
