Year 6

Welcome to the Year Six page!

We will keep this page updated with useful resources as well the exciting things that we have planned for this year.

Toy Stories - Young Writers' Competition

 

On Friday 17th November, the 'Toy Stories' Young Writers' Competition was launched in school. This national competition gives the children the opportunity to develop their creative writing skills through writing a story or mini saga of no more than 100 words about the secret life of toys. This is a fantastic way for children to develop their writing skills and be in with the chance  to win some fantastic prizes!

 

The official closing date is 22nd December and it is possible to enter online, although school postal entries will have to be collected by 18th December in order for them to be received in time!

Useful Websites

 

Here are some websites that will really help improve english and maths skills for the upcoming SATS. There are also fun activities for other subjects on these websites that will prove beneficial to the children and deepen understanding of different curriculum areas.

 

 

Spelling Practice

Children are given spelling homework each week in order to practise key words and spelling patterns. Regular practice of these words at home is highly beneficial. In the documents below you will find the spelling lists for years 3 and 4, as well as those for years 5 and 6, which relate to the national expectations for each year group.

SATS Guidance Video

 

Thank you to all who attended the open afternoon on Thursday 9th November. During the session, I showed a Key Stage Two SATS guidance video. Although the video is directly related to the tests from this summer, the general outline of the tests and advice given is applicable to the tests to be taken by the children in the summer of 2018. A link to the video is below.

 

I highly recommend watching the video and if you do have any questions, please feel free to ask.
