Welcome to Year 6! 

Our class teacher is Mr Banks and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Peters and Mrs Garnett. We are also lucky to have Madame Peters teaching us French (it's Mrs Peters really!), Mr Lowe teaching us PE and Mrs Gawne-Sheridan teaching us History, Geography and Computing.

In Year 6 we are busy getting ourselves High School ready. We try to make all our learning fun and enjoyable and the children really thrive to improve their learning in all areas of the curriculum.

There will be an increasing emphasis on homework and extending learning beyond the classroom. Children are expected to have rapid recall of all their times tables and learn spellings weekly as well (tests take place weekly on Friday). Maths and Literacy homework will also be sent home on Friday and is expected the following Wednesday. This is a vital aspect of Year 6 as this will become common practice when the children move up to High School. 

Important things to remember:

  • Key Stage Two Tests will take place wc 13th May 2019 - do not book any holidays during this week.
  • PE is currently on a Thursday and Friday - please ensure your child has a labelled PE kit in school every day.
  • It is really important that your child reads regularly - they should all read at least three times each week. Discussing the book with your child will develop reading comprehension skills too.
  • Please help your child learn times tables up to 12x12. Hit the Button is a great game to help with this.
  • Have a look at these websites - they'll be really useful for going over key ideas.
