Year 6

In Year 6 children continue to follow the National Curriculum and in addition they learn a modern foreign language, French. The National Curriculum sets out what children should be taught and what they should be able to do at each stage of their education. English and Mathematics form the core of our work and the majority of basic skills are taught as discrete units. However, we recognise the importance of making learning meaningful and memorable for children and try to make creative links between the different areas of learning whenever we can. 

At 8.50 we start the day with an activity – eg reading, handwriting or problem solving. Children are chosen to be class monitors to do some of the essential jobs around the class.Year 6 children can also be chosen to be school monitors; for this they wear a badge. This is a greater responsibility and children are chosen accordingly. There is also the opportunity for children to apply to be headboy or headgirl. Children need to fill in an application form and have an interview where they are asked questions by the year 6 teachers and a governor.  2 children are then selected.

Reading – Children must read once per day and write a comment about what they have read.  Once a week, the children take part in a larger group reading session focussed on developing their individual reading targets and their comprehension skills. All children have a reading target that is designed to help them develop skills needed to move to the higher level.
