We are looking forward to our Intrepid Explorers topics this term. We will be focused on Geography with lots of mapping skills, investigations into Europe and the UK and their physical and human characteristics. In Science we will be classifying living things and examining a variety of habitats, before moving on to the circulatory system and digestion.
To support your child with their reading is really important and it will help them to make progress across the curriculum. When we read books we extend our vocabulary, we gain greater understanding of the world we live in and it encourages us to use new themes and ideas in our writing.
Here are two great reading lists for Year 6 children, take a look and see if you find these books in your local library, or at school:
We also held a reading workshop for parents recently. Here are the presentation slides:
Each Friday there will be directed home learning for each child to complete by the following Friday.
The purpose of this home learning is to support each child’s progress in key skills for Year 6, whilst also preparing them for the increased work load they will experience in secondary school next year. This home learning is to go alongside IXL and Times Table Rockstars that the school is subscribed to.
A paper copy will always be available to take home, but to minimise paper wastage we are encouraging children to access the home learning from the school website if possible.
Teacher Assessment Frameworks
These statutory frameworks are used only to make a teacher assessment judgement at the end of the key stage.
You can download sample SATs papers, which are useful for preparing for the tests from satspapers.org.
Our curriculum overviews gives you an idea of which topic your child will be studying at which point during the school year.
