Our Year Six

Hello, I am Mrs Khan, the year group leader for Year 6.

This is an important transitional year for the children as it is their last year in Primary school before moving into Secondary education. During this year there is a great emphasis on the core areas of learning; Reading, Writing and Mathematics. During the Summer term pupils are formally assessed in these areas (Statutory Assessment Tests).

We hope that your children enjoy Year 6 as much as we do. 

Year 6

To prepare for Secondary school we create an environment, in which the children are motivated to learn independently. To support this, all children receive a homework diary and are responsible for: writing down their spellings/homework each week and keeping a personal reading record. Parents/guardians should sign the homework diary on a weekly basis and use the diary for regular communication with their child’s class teacher.

In the Summer term the children have the opportunity to be a part of the end-of-year school production. This gives them the chance to showcase their skills in singing, dancing and acting, prop making and set design.

We hope that your children enjoy Year 6 as much as we do.
