year 6 Curriculum
Please download our termly curriculum documents here for more information about what we will are learning and to see examples of our work.
We have Games outside on Tuesday, Gymnastics on Wednesday and Dance indoors on Thursday, when we need a kit for indoor and outdoor activities.Year 6 will also be swimming on a Thursday afternoon during the Autumn and Spring Terms. The children will be split into 2 groups, with 1 group swimming during the Autumn and the other group swimming during the Spring. All children will receive notification for swimming arrangements.
Homework will be set on a Friday to be handed in the following Wednesday. Homework will usually consist of Maths and English. It is extremely important that children complete their homework on time. We encourage independence with homework tasks, but if your child finds a particular task really challenging and you have had to give a lot of support, please write a comment on the sheet/page.
We hear the children read as often as possible in school. Please continue to help with reading at home as even though the children are now free readers they still need to read as often as possible. It is important that the children not only read the words, but understand the meaning of the words. The books need to be in school each day.
Class Dojo is a new way for teachers to encourage students and contact parents about their child's progress in class. It can be used online or downloaded as an app on iOS and Android devices. Please ask if you require a copy of your log in.
