Welcome to Year 6
We have two year 6 classes, one called Rauf and the other called Howe.
Miss Megaw teaches in Rauf and Mr Dinning is the teacher in Howe. The teaching assistants across Year 6 are Mrs Naqvi, Mrs Akhtar and Mrs Sample.
Our classes are named after famous authors, you may recognise some of their stories!
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, Year 6 are the 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.
6 Howe’s P.E lessons are on Mondays and 6 Rauf’s P.E lessons are on Tuesday. You will need to come to school wearing your PE kit and you will be able to stay in this all day. PE will take place outside so make sure you have black warm jogging bottoms. Please make sure you do not wear any branded clothing or football kits.
We know that it is important to keep developing our reading skills as we work to understand complex texts. To help with this, children need to read at home each day. They don’t need to always read to an adult anymore because they have become such skilled readers although it’s nice to read to an adult a couple of times a week.
As we get closer to SATs you might want to go the extra mile and do some extra homework. Click here to log on to Monster SATs.
What are we learning about this half term?
This half term, Year 6 will be looking at the history of democracy in Britain, looking at the impact of events such as the signing of the Magna Carta and how government has developed since. We will be comparing different government types explore and examining the important roles between the monarchy, prime ministers and politicians. Within these topic lessons, we will explore how politics is about taking an active role and interest in the future, to improve our lives and those of others.
