Year 6 Key Information
Welcome to the Year 6 page! Year 6 are taught by Miss Deighan and Mrs Kenny.
School begins at 8:50 am, so please ensure you are here on time to avoid missing out on valuable learning time!
It is an expectation that children read at home at least three times per week. Children who read for pleasure are six times more likely to achieve above their age-related expectations, so it is incredibly important. Children who are still reading book band books in Year 6 will be listened to in school as well as at home, and will have their level reviewed regularly. Below is a document which shows how reading progresses throughout the school, and how you can support at home.
Children will receive homework for English and Maths every Friday, and will be expected to hand it in by the following Tuesday. Children who struggle to complete their homework at home will be invited to attend a homework club after school.
In addition to their English and Maths homework, children are expected to practise their spellings every week. They receive spellings on a Friday and are tested the following Friday. They should also be able to confidently read and spell the words from the National Curriculum Common Exceptions words list for Years 3/4 and 5/6, which are linked below.
Children are expected to know their times tables up to 12 x 12 by Year 4, however this is something that they need to continue to practise into Year 6. Children should be fluent in the bonds up to 12 x 12, and be able to confidently understand the inverse operations of each calculation. All children have an account on Times Table Rockstars, where they can play games to help them to learn their times tables and the equivalent division facts.
Year 6 have PE lessons on Wednesday afternoons, so need to ensure they have PE kits in school every Wednesday.
This term, we will be learning the following subjects in each curriculum area:
