Welcome to Year 6


In Year 6, the children will be taking part in lots of different activities to engage them in their learning. We are looking forward to some of the exciting things that we have planned for them. 


In English, we will be looking at different genres of non-fiction and a range of stories.  The children will have even more opportunities to write in their own style to show off all that they are able to do!  Year 6 will be studying a variety of grammar and punctuation skills and applying them in their writing. We will be discussing key features of different texts and trying to improve our inference skills. 


During our daily Maths sessions the children we be focusing on how to approach mathematical problems with confidence. We will be learning how to apply our knowledge of number and use formal written methods for calculations.  We will be investigating properties of different shapes and looking how we can transform those shapes.  We will continue to use data handling skills to interpret information. Of course these aspects of Maths will be underpinned with problem solving. 


Physical Education: Please ensure your child has named PE kit in school at all times. This is a red t-shirt, black shorts and trainers. Tracksuit top and bottoms can be used in cold weather. PE days are as follows;

Class 16 - Monday and Tuesday

Class 17 - Monday and Tuesday

Class 18 - Monday and Friday 


Each week the children will be set homework. Below is a summary of what the children will be expected to do.  They will always be given a set date to hand in their work.  All homework is recorded in planners, by the children.



The children will have two homework books: one for maths and one for English homework. 

Spelling - the children will be given a set of spellings to learn each week

Grammar and Punctuation - the children will be given an activity each week (this activity will vary depending on the task) 

Reading - children are expected to read daily 

Maths - at least one paper based task per week 





House sports!


This Tuesday afternoon (15th October), year 6 children took part in a year group House competition, involving benchball, football and cross country activities. 


The results are as follows:


Sycamore - 92 points

Willow - 89 points

A useful video that explains the Key Stage 2 tests the Y6 children will take in May 2018.
Although this video is from last year, the key information is still relevant.
