Welcome to Year 6

Welcome to our Year 6 page, we have two classes, 6HB and 6KJ. Here you will be able to read about the exciting things that we do throughout the year and use the links below to see the curriculum that we follow.

Meet the Teachers

Our Year 6 team consists of Miss Burns (Teacher), Miss Jones (Teacher), Mrs Mitka (Teaching Assistant) and Miss Wilson (Teaching Assistant). Any of our year 5 team will be happy to talk to you about your child’s need and interests.

PE

Year 6 have PE with Coach Brian. 6KJ have PE on a Monday afternoon and 6MB have PE on a Tuesday afternoon. Children will need their kits on both days in case of a swap or have group interventions taking place. PE is a compulsory subject and children are expected to have the correct kit. Please ensure that your child’s name is on ALL items of clothing.

Homework and Spellings

Homework is handed out every Friday and is due back the following Wednesday. Homework is based around the work the children have done in class that week to help consolidate the learning.

Spellings are handed out on a Friday and are then tested on the following Friday.

At the end of Year 6, usually the first or second week in May, our Y6 children sit SAT tests. These tests are in Mathematics, Reading and Grammar. Writing is assessed using teacher judgement. You will receive more information from the school before your child starts to prepare for their SATs.
