Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to Year 6’s Class Page. I am Miss Mills and I will be teaching in Year 6 this year with Mrs Barnes and Miss James. I am really looking forward to the year ahead and I know that together we will all shine, have fun, look after one another and work hard.
Should you have any queries then please feel free to email me email@example.com
Year 6 is a very important year for the children as they will spend a large proportion of their time preparing for their SAT’s in May next year. The children will receive all the support they need for them to have a fantastic year; this will include additional SAT’s Booster sessions in Reading, Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPAG) and maths. More information about when these sessions will start will be sent home nearer the time. However, any additional support you can provide at home with homework and reading will be much appreciated.
In Year 6 we are independent learners and it is important that all homework is completed and handed in on time each week. Homework will consist of the following:
Reading Books: Reading a variety of texts will expand your child’s vocabulary and knowledge which they will then be able to apply to their writing. Regular reading is expected and reading records must be signed by an adult. We expect a book a week to be read in Year 6.
Spellings: Your child will have a set of weekly spellings to practise each week for a spelling test. These will include spellings from the statutory spelling list for year 5/6 as well as spellings which follow particular spelling rules.
Maths and English: Your child will also receive a homework booklet at the start of Year 6. This will be in the style of SAT’s based questions. We will mark and cover any misconceptions as they arise in school. The children will be given specific page numbers to complete which will consolidate what they have been learning about in school that week.
Although there will be a lot of preparation for SAT’s in Year 6, we have lots of other exciting learning taking place in school. We will be learning about The Victorians and the Amazon Rainforest. We will also be going on school trips which will bring our learning to life outside of the classroom. We will be doing P.E each week so please can you ensure that your child has a full labelled P.E kit in school. PE is on a Wednesday for the Autumn term.
Any queries please feel free to contact me via email due to the current COVID restrictions.
