Thank you to parents/carers who attended our Year 6 SAT's meeting.

In year 6, your children will initially be taught in their own class and will be grouped by ability, ensuring that work is set at the correct level. Children will receive a spellings session where they will be tested on words required in the Year 6 curriculum. Children will also receive Guided Reading sessions with an opportunity to continue their reading for pleasure during these sessions. We will continue to focus on developing handwriting, which will be taught in an individual lesson once a week.
Our PE sessions will be held as follows:
Gym / Dance: Wednesday afternoons
Games: Friday afternoons
Please be aware that these sessions may be flexible, therefore children need a PE kit (consisting of green/black shorts, a white top and pumps) in school at all times. Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days. Children may be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions. It is advisable to clearly label all of your child’s uniform with their name to prevent lost property confusion. If your child cannot participate in PE sessions, a written letter explaining the reasons why need to be shown to the class teacher. Spare kit is available for children who forget their kit.
Children in Year 6 receive regular homework, which is expected to be completed on time and to a high standard. Spellings will be given out and tested weekly. We encourage you to help your child learn the spellings and talk to them about the meaning of the words.
We have some fantastic topics planned for Year 6 this year and this term we will initially be studying North America in Geography and researching the wide variety of biomes that can be found in this region. In Art, we will be doing a range of activities linked to our History topic of World War 1. Children will produce a paint and collage tribute to the fallen.

We look forward to working with you over the next year to ensure your children have a pleasurable and valuable year. Year 6 is a very important year and we look forward to excellent progress being made. If you have any concerns or worries, please arrange a time to speak to one of us, as you play a vital role in your child’s education.
