Welcome to the Year 6 page!
In Year 6, the children have a busy year as we prepare them for their transition to secondary school. They will need to work hard in becoming more independent in their learning; they will need to be less reliant on the adults in the classroom and ensure they are listening carefully to the instructions they have been given. This independence is also extended into how they help to improve their own work through discussion with others, based on the criteria given to them. They will therefore need to respect each other’s opinions and be willing to accept criticism as something to learn from.
The children are expected to be punctual, well-presented and eager to learn when they enter the classroom- all of which are key in providing the foundations for a classroom that is conducive to quality learning. High-expectations are set for the children, both in their academic studies and their behaviour and it is therefore important that children strive to be the best they can both inside and outside the classroom. They are expected to set a great example to others.
The children are assessed in May based on the key areas of the curriculum (Reading, Writing and Maths) in the SATs tests.
Homework is based on the concepts studied in class and is therefore designed to enhance and reinforce their learning. It is also an independent task.
The highlights outside of the classroom include the Year 6 school journey to France and performing in the leavers' play.
