Year 6

I would like to extend a warm welcome to the new school year. I believe that you as parents are the prime educators of your child and therefore by working as a team together, I aim to ensure your child reaches their full potential whilst in my care.

The teachers in Year 6 are Mrs Younger and Mr Healy.

The Year 6 curriculum builds on the knowledge gained in Year 5. In Year 6, our aim is to prepare the children with the knowledge and skills needed for their transfer to Key Stage 3 and as a global citizen of the world.

In May, children will sit the SATs tests in Reading, Maths and Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling. Their writing will also be assessed throughout the year. SATs workshops scheduled for later this year will provide you with detailed information about the tests.

Year 6 is a very exciting and important year and there are many enjoyable activities to look forward to, both inside and outside of school.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child, please feel free to see me at the end of the day. If I am not available or this is not convenient for yourself, then please make an appointment with me via the school office.

Mrs Younger
