Welcome to Year 6.
Welcome to the Year 6 page. Our teachers this year are Mr Coupe and Miss James. Mrs Marchant and Mr Cavanagh also teach in Year 6 to allow us to have smaller group sizes.
We have had a productive time so far this year and we are preparing for our next steps in education and a future in secondary school.
The school day.
Our school day begins at 8:25am. We usually spend the first section of the day carrying out corrections on our previous day's work in order for us to improve and progress. This is followed by a daily spelling test. We use 'Read Write Inc' spelling scheme. Between 9:00 and 11:00 we have English and Maths up to break-time.
Our topic work includes history, geography and art. We also study science as part of the curriculum. Year 6 also have the opportunity to go swimming every week to supplement PE lessons.
Our lunch is at 12:40pm till 1:25pm and our day ends at 3pm. We run a homework club from 3pm - 4pm in Year 6 every Monday afternoon.
Miss James' class go swimming on Wednesday afternoons while Mr Coupe's class do P.E.
Weekly homework is given out on a Friday to hand in the following Friday. This consists of Reading, Grammar and Maths homework.
Weekly speed spells are carried out on a weekly basis in Year 6. We take our new spellings home on a Wednesday and are then tested the following Monday.
Times tables tests are carried out weekly, on a Friday.
Reading Organisers are checked on a Friday morning. We should be reading at least three times a week at home. Our reading homework counts as one of our reads.
