Year 6

This term in 6D.

In Year 6 this term our focus is on preparing the children for the SATs tests which take place in May.

We will be concentrating on Maths and Literacy and the children will be completing practice test papers in these subjects.

PE continues to take place on Tuesday afternoon, however this may be subject to change at short notice, therefore the children should have PE kit in school at all times.

Homework will begin to be set on a daily basis with the children having an opportunity to discuss any issues they are having the day before it is due in.

Use of film in year 6: In literacy work we may be using a variety of films, in whole or in part, to enhance learning. Some of these films may be rated as PG. If you do not wish your child to view a PG film in class please let us know.

Help from home: The children will be bringing their completed test papers home, it would be helpful if you could encourage the children to use these as revision aids. Also, please continue to support your child by ensuring they are reading regularly at home. This will help them with comprehension skills as well as improving their writing.
