Year 6 is an exciting and important year for the children. As the oldest children in the school, they are expected to lead by example and demonstrate leadership skills by taking up various roles. These include Prefect roles, Sports Crew members and Play Leaders.
The children in Class 6 are expected to set a good example to the rest of the school by being well behaved, punctual, organized, helpful and polite at all times. High standards of work are expected from them both in work completed at home and school.

Part of a child’s development as a reader involves them selecting and discovering their own reading material. Children will bring home a book chosen from our reading corner or the school library that is within their AR level, as well as a Reading 4 Pleasure book. They will participate in group reading sessions in school. As reading is a continuous learning process, children may occasionally bring home a text that is too difficult or too easy. You can assist with this process by discussing choices with them and encouraging them to select more appropriate material. Mrs Gardiner also guides children in this process. Children are asked to read daily and to complete their own reading record.
All homework will be set on a Monday on Microsoft Teams and needs to be completed by the following Monday.
Reading- Children will be asked to read daily at home and for this to be noted in their school reading diary.
Maths- Maths tasks will be set on Microsoft Teams. These will vary between MyMaths or a choice of differentiated tasks. Answers to the work will be made available on the following Monday for self-marking.
English- A reading comprehension or GPS task will be uploaded onto Microsoft Teams and as with maths, answers will be made available on the following Monday for self-marking.
Spellings- Children will be set weekly spellings appropriate to the stage of development they are at. These will be uploaded to Microsoft Teams and EdShed.
Timestables- Please continue to practise times tables. This could be done using platforms such as Times Table Rock Stars.
The Year 6 Enterprise Scheme, encourages children to come up with ways to fundraise for special events such as the Year 6 prom and hoodies. It teaches children to be resourceful, work as a team and take ownership.
To encourage independence and responsibility, the children usually have the opportunity to be prefects, play leaders and sports crew members. As the children are now in ‘bubbles’ (due to Covid protective measures), the opportunities for these roles are currently limited, but will be resumed as soon as we are able to.
If you need to speak to the class teacher about any aspect of your child’s schooling, please do not hesitate to contact the office to arrange a telephone appointment.
