Welcome to Year 6
In Year 6, our teacher is Miss Guy.
Our teaching assistant is Miss Stephenson.
On Wednesday afternoons, Year 6 will be taught by Miss Stephenson and Miss Hawtin.
Our whole school creative curriculum topic for the Autumn Term is 'H20 and Beyond'.
In English, we will be carrying out a range of writing activities related to the theme of pirates.
During the Spring term, our history topic will be based on the Apollo 11 space mission and the first man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong.
Our PE sessions are on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Please ensure that your child brings in their PE kit on these days.
Brass lessons (for children continuing to play an instrument in Year 6) take place on Thursday lunch times in the music room.
Please ensure that children bring their brass instruments to school on a Thursday.
Children should bring their reading book and reading record to school every day. When children change their book, they should record the title of it in the class reading folder along with date. Reading books will be checked frequently by Year 6 staff.
On Fridays, children will be assessed on the spellings they have been learning throughout the week. Children should practise their spellings at home using their spelling log books.
Homework and revision
In Year 6, children receive homework on a Friday. This will generally be a piece of English and a piece of maths work linked to the learning that the children have been doing during the week. Children are given until Thursday of the next week to complete their homework and bring it in to school. If children require further support to complete the homework tasks, they are welcome to bring it in before the hand in date and a member of Year 6 staff will help them with it. In addition, children may also receive topic-based homework projects or whole school tasks to complete.
Children are also encouraged to make use of revision guides and revision sites such as BBC Bitesize KS2 and I Am Learning to prepare for their SATs examinations in May.

In spelling, we are learning about spelling rules from the National Curriculum. Each week we have a new set of spellings related to a particular rule. We practise these spellings throughout the week in a variety of ways, including games and partner work. At the end of the spelling unit, we have a test based on a selection of words which link to this particular rule.
