In Year 6, we have three classes: 6 Warhol, 6 Banksy and 6 Vasarely. In 6 Warhol, the class teacher is Miss Brown with the support of Mrs Beirne. In 6 Banksy, the class teachers are Mrs Boyling and Mrs Watt with the support of Mrs Dalby. In 6 Vasarely, the class teachers are Mrs Hallett and Mrs Wooder, with the support of Mrs Bayes. In addition to this, we are fortunate to have Miss Tsang and Ms Jones who work across all the three classes and run intervention groups where necessary.
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.
You will find our curriculum information further down the page!

Today, in maths, we have been working with the multi-link cubes to investigate ratio. We made models using 3 colours and then discussed what the ratios would be. Once we were confident with this, we scaled up our models to twice the size and looked at the patterns in our results. Tomorrow we will be solving problems involving ratio.

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 an additional piece of home learning which is due in the following Tuesday. The children have been issued with a Homework Diary to help them manage their time effectively in preparation for secondary school. These need to be signed by a parent/carer each week and handed in every Wednesday to be signed by their class teacher. In addition to this, please continue to support your child with their reading by regularly reading to them, listening to them read and asking them questions about their reading. We encourage them to record this in the homework diary too.
Our Year 6 PE lesson is on a Wednesday afternoon so please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on this day.
