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' 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, organised, helpful and polite at all times. High standards of work are expected from them both in work completed at school and at home.

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 for 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. Miss Spain and Mrs Smith also guide the children in this process. Children are asked to read daily and to complete their own reading record.
Reading- Children will be asked to read daily at home and for this to be noted in their school reading diary.
All homework will be set on a Monday on Microsoft Teams and needs to be completed by the following Monday.
Maths- Differentiated maths tasks will be set on MyMaths.
English- A reading or GPS task will be uploaded onto Microsoft Teams or EdShed.
Spellings- Children will be set weekly spellings. These will be uploaded to Microsoft Teams and EdShed.
Times Tables- 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 leaver's party and hoodies. It teaches children to be resourceful, work as a team and take ownership.
To encourage independence and responsibility, the children have the opportunity to be prefects, sports crew members and play leaders.
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.
