Welcome to year 6. Year 6 is hard work but a lot of fun. We all know we have SATs to work towards but we really try to make things as straight forward and fun as possible. We want you to do well in your last year of primary school but we also want you to make some great memories and be as prepared as you can be for high school.
Being the oldest in the school, you are the best role models.
So that others can identify this and know who to follow when they need to do the right thing, the children in year 6 wear black jumpers.
We have two year 6 classes, one called Pankhurst and the other called Ostler. Each class has their own teacher and we are lucky enough to have 2 teaching assistants to help us learn. Miss Roddick teaches in 6P where Miss Carr is the Teaching Assistant and Miss White teaching in 6O where Mrs Morphet is the Teaching Assistant.
Our PE lessons are on a Monday. It is a good idea to bring your full PE kit into school at the start of every term, and keep it in school until a school holiday. This is to make sure you have your kit in school for every PE lesson. Please make sure you put your name in any clothing you send into school so that we can help you do their best to look after it.
We know that it is important to keep developing our reading skills as we work to understand complex texts. To help us do this we read at home each day and ask an appropriate adult to sign our reading journal to confirm we have done this. We don’t need to always read to an adult anymore because we have become such skilled readers although its nice to read to an adult a couple of times a week.
We also work hard the learn key facts in maths using our Maths Passports so don’t forget to ask us what our latest target is!
We have put some information together below so you can find out more about what we learn in year 6:
The year 6 class teachers are available to have a quick chat with whoever brings you to school on a morning or collects you at pick up time. If they need a longer chat, please ask them to make an appointment to see them via the school office.
