Welcome to Year 6: "The Pioneers"

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child in to Year 6.

Year 6 is a very exciting time that will present your child with many wonderful opportunities, including our residential trip to the Isle of Wight and preparation for the transfer to secondary school. It is a year where children mature and can become role models for the rest of the school.

As well as a focus on achieving progress in the main areas of study, we also hope to engage in a range of creative activities in our local area ensuring children appreciate their environment and also feel they are taking an active role in the community.

Home learning:

Each week your child will be required to complete their homework in their homework books; this may begin to build and differ as we approach May (the time at which your children will take their End of Key Stage 2 Assessments). Please encourage them to hand it in on time (Wednesdays). Your children’s individual targets have been stuck in to their home-school diaries; please read and discuss them with your children.

Other Information:

P.E will be on a Wednesday afternoon and a Friday morning so please could you ensure that the children have the correct kit in school on these days. Madame Robinson’s French lessons are on a Wednesday and music continues to be taught on a Thursday. On a Thursday morning, Mrs Smith will be teaching the class. Mrs Ripley will work with Year 6 in the mornings.

Useful Websites:

Username / Passwords can be found in children’s home school diaries.

Assessment for learning:

The new National Curriculum has set out clear expectations for what children should achieve by the end of each key stage. To track pupil attainment we are using Target Tracker, a system that has devised a series of statements that allow children, teachers and parents to assess progress in their learning in line with NC requirements.
