“In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn.”
Throughout the year the subjects we will cover are English, Maths, Science, Religious Education, Computing, Physical Education and Humanities. The children will benefit from specialist teachers for Creative Arts.
What learners need to be successful
In Year 6, pupils will work with increasing independence and confidence. Pupils will need to be able to work co-operatively, share ideas and apply their knowledge.
Pupils need to bring their book bags every day. This should contain their reading book and reading record.
Children are expected to read every night at home with an adult, even if it is just a few pages of their book. They will also develop their independent reading. Please ensure that you fill in your child’s reading record so we can track what they have been reading. Extended learning books will also be sent out weekly.

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.
Children in Year 6 have their own individual logins for Education City.
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 you 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 on our website.
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 5 team.
