Year 6 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Year 6!
We are pleased to welcome you to the Year 6 page. The main need-to-know information can be found here as the year progresses. Watch out for continual updates on our news items page to see what our Year 6s have been up to. If you have a general query, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall endeavour to reply as soon as we can.
On Monday 3rd July, we hosted a well-attended Zoom meeting regarding the Y5 into Y6 transition - this presentation can be found here. The recording of this meeting can be found here. Glance at the Y6 overview to see which topics will be covered throughout the year. To familiarise yourselves with the site on Claremount Road, have a watch of Miss Pickering's tour of Top Site.
The main team who will be leading your children in the academic year, 2023/24 are:
Miss M Jones
|6B||Mrs Yates / Mr Nathan|
|6C||Miss M Lewis|
Other adults that will work with Year 6 are Mrs R Lewis (MFL lead and PPA cover), Miss G Roberts (PPA cover) and Mrs Pue-Richards (music teacher). PE will be taught by class teachers on a Wednesday. Children should come to school - on their allocated day - in their PE kit (plain black, blue or grey tracksuits with plain white t-shirts/polos).
|Y6 PE Day|
Homework will be given to children in Year 6 each week, on a Friday. The homework each week will include - 4 home reads (with an adult and reading log signed). It is advisable to listen to your child read and ask them questions related to what they are reading, so that there is a focus on comprehension and understanding rather than simply the amount read. In Year 6, we use VIPERS for reading questions. Additionally, we will have three practice SATs books. Each week the children will be set a page from each to practise different skills. These books will be introduced at the end of September.
Homework will be outlined on a Friday and should return to school no later than the following Wednesday.
