Year Six

Year Six

Class Teacher - Mr Wilson
Teaching Assistants - Mrs Taplin, Miss Burns, Mrs Leech and Miss Kelly

This year the Year 5 and 6 class are together.

In Year 6, we have high expectations of everybody. We believe that working as a team we will achieve the very best outcomes for all. We are passionate about teaching and aim to deliver a diverse and interesting curriculum. 

As we prepare our Year 6 pupils for transition to secondary school, we focus on developing their leadership skills by assigning them additional responsibilities. We rely on each of them to be confident, positive, inspirational role models to the younger pupils can aspire to be. 

We have lots of exciting topics and educational visits planned for this year to broaden the children’s learning. 

Our Weekly Routine

Every day is taught by Mr Wilson, supported by Mrs Taplin, Miss Burns, Mrs Leech or Miss Kelly.

Reading in Year 6

Children will continue to move through the colour schemed books in school and/or free reading. The children will get a book to read at home from one of these colours, but they are also welcome to read books from home. Children are expected to read at least 4 times a week at home and that their reading record is signed by an adult. We use a tick sheet in class to record how often the children read at home. Children who have 4 signed reads in their record, by Friday, are rewarded with dojos points. 

Homework and Spelling in Year 6

In Year 6, homework will be given on Showbie, which is an online tool we use throughout school. Children will also use this in school for some lessons. 

Homework will be uploaded to Showbie on a Friday afternoon, to be returned the following Thursday. Homework will usually be Maths or English, but it could be linked to our topic in Science, History or Geography. In the Spring term, homework will mainly be focused around the end of key stage SATs tests (which are completed in May).  

Spellings will be given on a Friday to learn for the following Friday, when we will have our test. All of the spellings will be uploaded to Spelling Shed, which provides games to help the children learn their spellings.

TimesTable Rockstars can also be accessed from home. This is a fantastic tool to help children with their Times Tables.
