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.

Our Curriculum

 

We will theme our English, Art and Topic lessons to match our termly topic. We are going to use our Studio kitchen to introduce the children to a variety of new flavours using Flavour School. Science lessons will also make the most of our fantastic Phiz-Lab. There will also be exciting opportunities to use technology to enhance all areas of the curriculum.

 

Let's meet the Year 6 teaching team

 

In Maple Class, you'll find Mr Bennett

 

In Willow Class, you'll find Miss Egan and Mrs Fisher.

 

We must not forget to introduce Dan White from Gugafit, who delivers a weekly Gugafit lesson.

 

 

Homework

 

During the academic year your child will have homework each week.  This is intended to help them 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.
