Welcome to the Year 6 Class page!
Welcome back to a new year and a new school term! We have so much to learn, so much to look forward to, so much to achieve and such a lot of fun to have as we prepare ourselves for our SATs tests in May!
Year 6 is taught by Miss Dunkley, with invaluable help from Mr Allack (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday), Miss Ibbotson (Thursday and Friday) and Mrs Dwyer.
Why not have a look at the Routine and Timetable tab to the right to see what usually happens during a 'normal' class day?
This half term, our topic is 'Fitness Fanatics', in which we shall learn about how our bodies are built, how they work and what we need to do to keep them healthy! On the other hand, we shall also be looking at things that are harmful to our bodies, combining research with practical investigations to inform persuasive and balanced arguments linked with the topic.
Home Learning this half term is linked with the topic and all Year 6 pupils are aware of the need to submit home learning of a standard they can be proud of; this is invaluable practise for when they enter secondary education. The Home Learning tab is also a useful tool to find out what homework pupils should be doing if they 'forget' or lose their Home Learning instructions sheets!
This half term, pupils will be tested on KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts), to ensure they are able to instantly recall mathematical facts which will help increase their confidence and speed in their work.

In November we held a “Get Ready for Maths SATs” evening for Y6 parents and pupils. We focused on Maths in this meeting and have since held a "Get Ready for English SATs" evening in January. You can access the PowerPoints here
Parents, should you have any concerns, worries or simply something you would care to discuss about the education and well-being of your child, please do not hesitate to arrange to have a chat with me after 3.30pm.
I look forward to working with you all in the school year of 2017-18.
