Who's Who in Year 6?
Miss Blythe - Class Teacher
Miss Copley - Teaching Assistant
Welcome to the Year Six Class Page
A big welcome to all the children and parents of Year 6 2018-19!
We have lots of fabulous things planned for the year!
We aim to help all children achieve their full potential whilst enjoying their time in our class. The children know that they are to make sure I am aware if they need any aspect of their work explained in more detail. Intervention will be either led by myself or a Teaching Assistant. Please do not hesitate to inform us if your child is worried about any issues that arise in school. Mornings are a very busy time for staff as we have to register the children, sort any other business and then get straight into Time to Worship, but we are more than willing to assist in any way after school if a longer discussion about your child is required.
Below is the yearly plan for Year 6 2018-2019. Please be aware this is a flexible plan that may change.
Please make sure your child has the appropriate kit for indoors and outdoors PE at all times.
PE will be on Tuesdays with Premier Sport.
Autumn Term Year 6 will be swimming on Friday mornings for a 10 week block. Please send appropriate one piece swimming costumes and trunks that are not too baggy or the instructors will not let them swim! If your child needs goggles, please send a note to me giving consent.
After swimming finishes we will have our other PE session on Friday afternoons.

A great website for Year 6 SATs revision resources and practice papers is Swaffield Primary School's site.
Please click here to access.
Homework and/or spellings will be handed out on a Monday morning and are due back the following Monday. I have included a list of helpful games and activities to help your child with spellings. All the rules and words on the Year 5/6 list will be drawn upon in the SATs spelling test.
Homework may include some essential revision sheets before Spring Term and revision homework for the SATs will begin in earnest after that. Up to that point, please hear your child read as often as possible, at least 3 times a week. I have given the children reading record books - please sign these when your child has been heard read. They have a genre sheet at the back of their books to fill in. This encourages the children to read a wider range of books.
Finally, children are expected to be secure on their times tables up to 12x12. This is not just reciting tables but being able to recognise all the multiplication and division facts for all tables. Please help your child if they need to secure their tables.
eg 4x6 = 24
6x4 = 24
24 divided by ? = 6 etc
