Year 6

Mr Rooney

Welcome to Year 6!

It was great to speak to you all at parents’ evening about the fantastic start the children have made to Year 6. If you missed your appointment and would like to speak to me, please get in touch.

This half term we have a lot happening in the run up to Christmas. One of our annual events will be enterprise week, followed by Christmas markets. We have had some kind donations of resources to help us but if you have any spare felt or yarn, this will help our project and maximise Year 6’s profit!

We will also be holding a SATs information evening – you will be informed of the date in advance.

Please keep checking this class page for updates.

Important Information

In May, Year 6 will sit the statutory KS2 SAT papers. The children will sit six papers in total: Maths (1 arithmetic, 2 reasoning), Reading, Spelling and Vocabulary, Punctuation and Grammar.

PE is on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please ensure that your child brings the correct PE kit, which can be viewed here and does not have any earrings in.

Spellings will be given out on Mondays and will be tested the following Monday. Weekly spellings include several activities to help with learning. I recommend to do one activity and one ‘look, cover…’ per day.

Reading is incredibly important, and is a gateway to the rest of the curriculum. Please try to read for at least 10 minutes daily with your child. I would like to see your child’s reading record at least once per week, and books can be changed when required. If your child has chosen a book that they do not like please change it as soon as possible. Encourage them to have a conversation with me if they struggle to find books to their liking. If your child is an avid reader – here is a link to 100 recommended reads for your child’s age.

Booster will take place on Monday and Thursday until 15:45 from Monday 26th September 2022
