To see the end of year expectations for Year 6 in reading, writing and maths click here to open the core curriculum framework document. You can see a sample weekly timetable by clicking here – please note this is purely to illustrate how a typical week may look and not necessarily exactly what happens every week – changes to timetables occur frequently, if you want more accurate and up to date information please speak to the class teacher.
Parents, visit the CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) website for advice on how to keep your child safe on line.
In Year 6 children have the opportunity to write in many different formats, have guided reading daily, visit the school library to get a book to take home as well as consolidating and progressing their learning in maths through number, shape, data handling and problem solving.
Reading books go home every afternoon and are brought to school every morning. We encourage the children to read every night. To support maths you could help them practice their mental maths and times tables (and division facts). Fun maths games and challenges can be found on the ‘Educational Links’ page under ‘School info’ or in the ‘Home Learning’ sections of the website. Using your child’s unique login for ‘Mathletics’ also gives you lots of activities to support learning. Ask your teacher if you need a copy of the login details.
PE will take place on Friday. Children need a plain white t-shirt and blue jogging bottoms or shorts to change into, as well as suitable footwear.
Any homework that is given out will usually be on a Friday and will be due in the following Tuesday. All homework will be marked in lesson. If children are finding it difficult, discuss homework club with the teacher.
SATs tests will be taken during the Summer Term and the children will be well prepared for what to expect so that they can achieve to the best of their ability.
The golden book assembly takes place every Friday, if your child is receiving a certificate you are more than welcome to attend. In addition to this, periodically Year 6 will perform an assembly to the rest of KS2 about the things they have been learning in class. Parents are welcome to attend these.
