In Year 6, children are assessed in line with statutory assessment tests (SATs).  This takes place in May in the summer term. An information evening for parents is held in January. 

 

Class Information

  • P.E. sessions will be held on Monday and Friday afternoons every week.
  • Children may wear PE kit to school all day on Mondays and Fridays.
  • Forest Schools is on alternate Wednesdays in Autumn 1 and Spring 2 and Summer Term. Children need to bring in warm Forest School kit.

Home Learning

Children all have a reading diary this year to help keep track of reading at home and homework tasks.  Any homework will be given out on Wednesday and should usually be completed by the following Monday.     

Homework set may vary depending on what is being studied in class and the needs of children.  It will usually consist of a Maths fluency exercise and grammar exercise to consolidate the learning in class.  In addition:

  • Children should read at home regularly and make a note in their diary when they have read.  We appreciate parents' support in encouraging regular reading.
  • Spellings will be sent home weekly to learn (test on Fridays). Your support in helping children understand the spelling 'rule' or pattern and the meaning of the words is appreciated.  
  • Children should practise times tables facts to reach fluency.  They are able to practise on Timestable Rockstars.  If you would prefer paper copies, please let us know. 

   

If you would like to discuss anything with us, please do not hesitate to ring or drop in after school for a chat.
