In Year 6, we have two classes: 6 Warhol and 6 Vasarely. Miss Holmes is the Class Teacher in 6 Warhol and Mrs Sinclair and Mrs Mawer are the Class Teachers in 6 Vasarely. Miss Scott is our Teaching Assistant who supports across both classes and runs some intervention groups, Mrs Archer is a Higher Level Teaching Assistant (who supports both classes on a Tuesday morning) and Mrs Hillery is a Learning Support Assistant, based in 6 Vasarely.
In Year 6, we strive to meet the end of Key Stage 2 expectations and prepare the children for their SATs in a supportive environment. We try to instil independence in the children, as well as develop their resilience and the skills they will need to prepare them for Secondary School and beyond.

The children have worked very hard this year to get to this point, so we would like them to relax and enjoy their final weekend before SATs. Therefore, we have given them some special homework this week. Please see this below so you can support them with it.
Dear Year 6,
You have all worked so hard this year to get to this point. You have grown in confidence and developed your skills and understanding brilliantly. We are all very proud of you and everything you have achieved. Remember, whatever happens next week, it doesn’t change the amazing people you are.
Of course, you want to do your best in your SATs, and we want that for you too. You deserve to achieve what you want due to all of the hard work and effort you have put in. Therefore, the time for revision is over! You need to take this last weekend before SATs to rest, relax and be refreshed and prepared for the week ahead.
Below are some ideas to help you do this – have a go at one, some or none. Whatever you do though, don’t revise – have fun!!!
· Go on a bike/scooter ride
· Play a game with your family
· Read a book/comic/magazine
· Watch your favourite TV programme
· Smile and laugh
· Enjoy the sunshine and the outdoors
· Eat sweets or ice-cream!
· Go for a swim/walk
· See your friends
· Cook or make something
· Do something arty
· Do your favourite hobby
· Try something you’ve never done before
· Have a water fight (outside!)
· Get muddy
· Climb a tree (carefully – no broken arms for SATs!)
· Learn to juggle
· Play in the park
· Take photographs
Remember, you deserve a break and need it. Get a good night’s sleep each day before your tests and remember to stay calm. Think about everything we have taught and told you over the past few months. You will all be brilliant – we know you can do this!! Enjoy your weekend and good luck for next week.
All the Year 6 Team: Mrs Sinclair, Mrs Boyling, Mrs Mawer, Miss Holmes, Miss Scott, Mrs Hillery and Mrs Archer

Helping at Home
In Year 6, the children are set weekly spellings on a Monday which are tested on a Friday. On Thursday we also set two additional pieces of home learning which are due on a Tuesday.
In addition to this, children will be setting up revision folders over the spring half term, so please support them in using these and creating a revision timetable to help them organise their workload in preparation for SATs. Please also continue to support your child by regularly reading with them, testing them on their times tables, and helping them to learn the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 spelling words, which they will be expected to evidence in their writing in class.
