Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

We can’t wait to welcome you back to school in September! There is so much to look forward to and we have got an exciting year in store for you. We can’t wait to start working with you! We will be ready to welcome you back and support you with your transition into Year 6.

Year 6 helpful information:

Please ensure these items are brought into school on the following days:

Monday Reading Records, PE Kit (usually indoor), Maths & English Homework
Tuesday Spelling Books in on Tuesday
Friday TALK Homework, Games or Swimming Kit

Reading records:
Please write the date, name of the book, colour level if it has one, page numbers and make a comment about the part you read. What happened? What did you think of it? Why? What questions did it make you ask yourself? Did it remind you of anything?  Please make a note of any new words you encounter too. Your parent/carer can also make comments about your reading here. Even if you write the comments yourself, please ask your parent or carer to sign your reading record before you bring it in each Monday.

Please bring homework into school on Monday to be marked and we will make sure you have your new homework to take home on Thursday.

Spelling Books:
You will be set ten new words to practise each week. Please make sure you have your book in school for a short test every Monday. Then take the book home again to practise your new words.

Mathletics and Times Table Rock Stars:
Learning our times tables are always important but they are particularly important in Year 6 Please ensure you are having a go at each of these at least once a week outside of school time. Complete any 'sessions' set by staff, usually involving Garage games (short focus on limited number of facts identified as those you next need to learn, and Studio games (these involve all table facts, but are useful to consider speed and accuracy in answering ).

Meet Team Year 6!

Mr Furlong

Likes: football and sport in general, an occasional run, reading, walking, visiting the coast.

Most looking forward to: challenging our new year 6 pupils to improve the quality of their maths and English, whilst listening to their ideas in Science.

Mr Thorne

Having taught Year 6 for many years, I really enjoy delivering history in an engaging and interesting way, having studied throughout my own schooling. At home, I enjoy building and painting models as well as going to the gym and running while listening to audio books.

What will we be up to?

Year 6 is great. There’s the responsibility of being the eldest in the school but that comes with lots of fun stuff too like great trips, plays and of course getting to sit on the benches in assembly.

We also do loads of fun topics. Starting off in the Autumn term we learn all about the Victorians and how they influenced the world we live in today – from Christmas stocking to ice cream! We read a great book called Street Child which is set in the Victorian era. Then in Spring our topic is Islands, where we study some interesting islands including our own. Finally in the last term there is our Survival topic and working on the Year 6 school play.

We hope you’re as excited about Year 6 as we are.
