Year 6

 

Welcome to Year 6’s class page. Year 6 have got such a fantastic attitude towards their learning at the moment and are all working really hard towards their up-coming SATs. They know that we all need to work together and stay focused in order to achieve success!

Year 6 are very lucky to have so many wonderful adults working with us: Mr Mee, Ms Stevenson, Mrs Taylor, Mrs Johnson, Mrs Smart and Mrs Wright are all working with us to help us to improve our learning and build our confidence.

 

This term our Year 6 focus is very much believing in ourselves, working hard and becoming successful! As well as working towards our SATs and our move to high school, we are looking at how our brain works and how this can help us to achieve more.

All pupils will be working very hard and focusing on the key skills we need to develop such as our reading comprehension, grammar and maths reasoning.

 

The children’s attitudes towards their SATs Buster books for homework have been over-whelmingly positive – they have all really got stuck into their new homework challenge and tried their best – keep this up!

Remember: homework is handed out on a Friday and needs to be returned by the following Wednesday.

PE kits are best kept in school all week, but Year 6 PE will take place on a Thursday so please make sure that it is in on that day – and remember no jewellery can be worn and the correct PE kit is essential!

Reading books need to be in school EVERY day please – the children are expected to read both to themselves and adults at home as many times as they can in the week – aiming for at least 3 times. Your support with this would be fantastic thank you!

 

A website list will be sent home very soon with some useful SATs revision links – please find them here too. They are full of handy hints, games, activities and practice questions to be done by the child alone or together.
