Everything you need to know about Year 6

The Year 6 Team

Year 6 will be taught by Mrs Moulsdale and Mrs Marsh.  If you have any queries or need any assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.  You can leave messages for us at the school office, talk to us at home time and you can also write in your child’s reading diary.

Useful Information

To help your child be organised we provide the following information.

PE Kits: Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school at all times. Details of all kit and uniform is on the website. 

Reading: Year 6 children are expected to read independently four times each week, they are able to sign their own planners but we ask that you sign your own initials to confirm that the reading is actually taking place.  You can also log any concerns that you may have. Reading diaries are required in school every day. 

Homework Children will be tested on their times tables and spellings every Friday, their times tables books should be handed in on a Monday. Reading logs are checked every Tuesday. Children will be given their spellings to learn on a Friday.

Reading: In class, we will be reading a text as a whole class, in addition they will also have a personal reading book.  This half term we will be reading Kensuke's Kingdom which we will use as a stimulus for some of our writing.

Maths: This half term we will be focussing on place vaue, the four operations and fractions.

Writing: Your child will be writing for lots of different purposes and we will be looking at different styles of writing.  During the year we will be introducing more punctuation to develop and improve writing and practising our grammar.  We will encourage the children to widen their vocabulary and investigate the meanings and origins of words.

SATs: Obviously, while in Year 6, your child will take the SATs examinations in Reading, Maths, Spelling and Grammar.
