Welcome to Year 6’s class page!
We have had a busy start to the summer term – SATs have been and gone and we are in full swing practising our Year 6 production of Robin Hood!
In English we have worked hard on our reading and grammar in preparation for the SATs for the first half of the summer term. We are now focusing on our writing and will be working on various text types – including information, persuasion, narrative and poetry – for the remainder of the summer term.
We are still following the Reciprocal reading programme where each reading skill is explicitly taught through clear modelling of the use of the skill alongside carefully chosen text.
Each week will focus on one key reading skill from the skills below:
Clarify (Spot breakdowns and try to mend them)
Summarise (put important items together)
Infer using clues
Make connections to background knowledge
This term marks the start of our preparation for our Year 6 production of Robin Hood. We will be rehearsing daily for this exciting event and look forward to showcasing our talents in the second last week of the summer term.
We are very much looking forward to our Year 6 residential trip to Osmington Bay, Dorset in June. We have some very exciting activities planned which will enable children to gain more confidence and also practise team building skills, with the transition to secondary school in mind. Keep an eye on the website for updates during our time away!
Although the SATs are over and the children’s time at primary school is coming to an end, we expect all children to demonstrate a high standard of behaviour at all times in order to create a safe, respectful and happy learning environment.
Each class has participated in the process of making a set of ‘Golden Rules.’ The children have agreed to follow the rules as they understand that this will help their learning.
Respecting each other and all members of staff is expected and reflects the ethos of our school.
The children are required to listen carefully and to develop their self-control and concentration in class and in the playground.
Working together with parents and guardians plays a big part in establishing good relationships and standards of behaviour.
In preparation for secondary school in September, we are encouraging children to take an active role in their own learning. During the second half of the summer term the homework focus will now be on practising lines/songs/dances and occasional project based work. We expect the children to take responsibility over their own learning and to organise their workload accordingly. Failure to submit homework on time will result in detention.
Thank you for your continued support! J
