Welcome to Year 6!
Your child will be taught by their class teacher in the mornings for English and Maths lessons and will be taught by all three Year 6 teachers on rotation in the afternoons for Our World, Creativity and Problem Solving / Thinking Skills lessons.
Our topics this year will be the Victorians and the World at War. Children will visit the Black Country Museum this term and will visit Whittington Barracks/Walsall Arboretum next term. We will arrange further visits during the term linked to your child’s learning and will notify you nearer the time.
Children are expected to be ‘independent readers’ in Year 6. They will read regularly in school and will be given opportunities to read for fun. Please ensure your child reads for a minimum of 30 minutes every day.
They need to bring their reading packet into school every day with their Twiggler signed by an adult at least twice a week.
Your child will need to bring their PE kit consisting of: a white t-shirt, black shorts and black PE pumps to school every Friday.
Maths and Grammar homework will be sent home every Friday and needs to be returned to school by Tuesday.
SATs will take place during the second week of May. We will be inviting you in for a meeting and also to participate in an interactive and exciting Inspire Workshop. We will notify you by letter nearer the time.
Please feel free to book an appointment at the office if you have any questions.
