Welcome to Year 6, where you will find children who are encouraged to be resilient and work hard to achieve their full potential. We promote a supportive and nurturing environment in which children are able to work both independently and collaboratively.

reading

Children are taught reading skills, and given the opportunity to read for pleasure, daily. Reading books are sent home three times per week, with children taking ownership of their reading record books.

If you are looking for age-appropriate texts to read at home with your child, why not have a look at the following website:

homework

Homework and reading books are set on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. It will be marked in class and sent home so you can see your child’s progress.


Children will have spelling lists sent home each week based on a spelling rule taught in class that week. We follow ‘Spelling League’ planning with children having access to the spelling game which runs alongside. Login details will be sent home during the first week of term. Follow the link below to have a look!

P.E kits will be needed for Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children are required to wear appropriate footwear for all sessions.


Maths

As a school, as well as daily Maths lessons, we also complete ‘Fluent in 5’. Below you will find some useful websites which can be used at home to practise and refine arithmetic skills. Children also have access to ‘Times Table Rockstars’ which is a fun way to learn those all-important times tables!
