Pupils in Year Six are in split into two main classes and stay in these class groups for most of their lessons. For Reading, Writing and Maths pupils are split into smaller classes so teachers are able to spend more time with each child. There are three teachers in this year group - two class teachers and then one ‘teacher around the team’.
During the morning, learning is mainly focused on developing pupils as readers, writers and mathematicians. Our afternoon sessions support pupils to use their morning learning as well as developing their skills and knowledge in other curriculum areas: Geography, History, R.E., P.S.H.E and Computing. Over the week, pupils also are taught by specialist teachers for Art, P.E. and Science. To support pupils in reaching their full potential, we also run small group sessions with specialist teachers in the afternoons in the run up to their SATs.
We believe that pupils learn best when their parents/carers and teachers work closely together. Because of this, we are always happy to discuss your child’s progress- just pop and see us at the end of the school day.

Throughout the year pupils have the opportunity to go on a variety of visits. Past trips include Drayton Manor and a weekend in France!
Homework, which helps pupils practise their learning, is set on a Thursday and is due in on the following Wednesday. It will usually involve an English and a Maths activity along with weekly spellings. Pupils are also expected to read daily and record this in their reading diaries which will be checked regularly. We also require pupils to practise their times tables ready for their weekly tests.
The following strands will be covered across the three terms:
Times tables will also be practised on a daily basis alongside the above units.
For more information about the strands please click the National Curriculum link at the bottom of this page.
Part of the learning in Year 6 involves preparing pupils for their move to Secondary School. This means that it is expected that they will begin to be more independent and responsible for themselves so they are ready for Year 7.
