Year 6

“In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn.”

Phil Collins

Throughout the year the subjects we will cover are English, Maths, Science, Religious Education, Computing, Physical Education and Humanities.

What learners need to be successful

Pupils will need to bring a bag to school with them every day. They will be provided with a reading book at their level and also a homework book with English, spelling and maths work weekly.

We would like children to read every night at home, even if it is just a few pages of their book. They can read independently but it would benefit them to read with an adult on occasion if possible.

How pupils’ learning will be assessed

Children in Year 5 will be assessed throughout the year, both formatively (by giving feedback for improvement) and summatively (by giving a level). To prepare for the Year 6 SATs, pupils will become more used to more formal question styles.

Children’s work will be marked regularly and children are encouraged to respond to all feedback, both verbal and written.

Learning materials

Children in Year 6 have their own individual logins for Education City.

Useful websites:

Maths homework sheets – To help you to prepare for your SATs, we have uploaded some additional maths homework sheets – this will allow you to practise those skills that you find a bit more tricky!

Learning enhancement

Children can sign up for after school clubs each term. To view a list of the current extracurricular activities available, please click here.

How parents can help with their child’s learning

Please read with your child every day and ask them questions about the story to help them think about what’s happening. Please support your child in completing their extended learning activity (homework) and remind them to hand it in each week. Children will be expected to learn their spellings each week. The key word spelling list can be found below. We would appreciate your support in helping children to practise and complete homework in our new cursive handwriting style. A guide to cursive writing can be found here.

If you require any support or have any questions with regards to your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Year 6 team.
