Welcome to Year 6. In this year we help to prepare the children for their transition to secondary school. Children are expected to demonstrate great listening, concentration and effort as well as excellent behaviour, setting a fantastic example to the children lower in the school. We have lots of extra responsibilities in Year 6 such as Reception Helpers, Choir Leaders and House Captains and we enjoy being ambassadors for the rest of the school.
Who Are the Teachers

Important Things to Know
P.E. kits are expected to always be in school.
P.E. lessons are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
In the winter months P.E. lessons will be outside, so it is worthwhile having a grey tracksuit.
Children who do not have their P.E. kit in school will be doing P.E. in their uniform or in one of our spare P.E. kits.
Please avoid sending your child to school wearing earrings on P.E. days.
English and Maths homework will be set every Friday to be handed in on a Wednesday.
Homework should take no more than half an hour per subject. If your child is stuck, please encourage them to come and see their Class Teacher, before the due date, so that we can help them.
Spellings are handed out on a Friday and will be tested on the following Friday. They will follow a rule or a pattern (or exceptions to these) that need to be learnt. If they have got any of their spellings incorrect, then this will be communicated with parents through the home-school contact (reading) book.
The children are expected to complete a minimum of three signed reads per week in their reading diary.
Reading books and diaries should be in school every day. They will be checked each Monday.
The School uses a wide variety of reading schemes that directly link with the National Bookband Scheme.
We expect to see three signed reads per week.
You do not have to listen to your child read and we do not specify what they are reading – just that they are reading regularly. If your child is having a difficulty with choosing books then please ask them to come and speak to one of the Year 6 team. We do not have a set day to renew or change reading books but we will give the children an opportunity to do this at several times during the week.
Please **** NO NUTS ****
Children are allowed to bring in a piece of fresh fruit or vegetables to eat at break time and are encouraged to have a bottle of water in the classroom to keep hydrated.
If there are any questions or concerns, please drop in to see the Class Teacher or leave a note in your child’s reading diary. We are here to help.
Please see the long term planning to see in detail what is taught in each term.
