CREATING A JOURNEY OF SUCCESS

Year 6 overview

Year 6, is no doubt, an important year. We aim to ease the transition from Junior school to secondary and provide the best preparation for the End of Key stage 2 assessments in May. The key words in Year 6 are resilience and independence. We aspire to make the final year of Junior the  most memorable. We are kicking of our year learning about the Maya.

Our Curriculum

In Year Six, our English, Art and Topic lessons match our termly topic theme. We use our Studio kitchen to introduce the children to a variety of new flavours using the 'Flavour School' scheme. We will also make the most of our fantastic Phiz-Lab within our science lessons. There are many exciting opportunities to use technology across the curriculum.

Let's meet the Year 6 teaching team:

In 6B, you'll find Mr Bennett, Mrs McConnell, Mrs Ollison and Mrs Mocanu 

In 6E, you'll find Miss Egan, Mrs Fisher and Mrs Sparrow.

We must not forget to introduce Miss Black, who delivers a weekly Gugafit lesson, as well as Mrs Hall, who will be teaching weekly RE lessons.

Games and PE lessons are timetabled for Tuesday and Thursday afternoons in Year Six. 

Homework

During the academic year your child will have homework each week.  This will be handed out on a Wednesday and is expected to be returned to school by the following Tuesday. 

Homework is intended to help the children to consolidate the learning that takes place during lesson time.  It is important then that you allow your children time at home to complete these tasks and where you can talk to your child to ensure they understand the importance of them.

We also have a high regard at school for reading books.  All children have the opportunity to take a reading book home so please ensure that your child reads as much as they can.  One way of ensuring this is to get your child to read aloud to you each evening or on the weekend.
