Welcome to Year 6
We hope you have had a super holiday and are ready for more fantastic learning! As you know, Year 6 is the final phase in primary education and are an extremely important aspect of children’s education. It is of paramount importance that children, teachers and parents all work together to ensure that pupils achieve their full potential in the end of year SATs test which take place in May.
Things to remember:
- All children MUST wear full school uniform, including plain black shoes
- Full PE kit must be adhered to, including a plain t-shirt in the house colour for your child
- PE is on Mondays. We advise children to keep PE kit in school all week, and only take it home at half term, or at the most, on weekends
- Homework this year will focus on reading every night, knowledge of all times tables and learning spellings.
Our opening topic is ‘A Child’s War, which is based on the experiences of children in World War 2. In literacy, we will be reading ‘Friend or Foe’ by Michael Morpurgo.
In science, we will be learning about rocks, fossils and evolution and inheritance.
