Our Class Christian Value is Respect
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself.
Phillippians Chapter 2, Verse 3

Welcome to Year 6!
Our children follow the New National Curriculum 2014 for all subjects. In addition to academic subjects, the children hold positions of responsibility in school such as, School Council Representatives, Worship Warriors, buddies to the younger children and lots more.
A great emphasis, both academically and emotionally, is placed on preparing children for secondary school. Our homework takes the form of spellings, times tables and reading. These are the three most important things you can possibly practise so make sure you use your homework time wisely! You are also encouraged to change your reading book on a regular basis and be adventurous. Try something different that you wouldn't usually pick. We have all types of books including ghostly ones, magical ones and classic stories that will always thrill.
We would like you to record in your Reading Logs each time you read at home and at school. When you complete a book, write a short evaluation – ‘Something you liked about the book’, ‘Something you did not like about the book’ and/or ‘Something that puzzled you’.
There is a weekly ‘tables’ test – you need to know multiplication tables and related division facts to at least 12 x 12. You can log on to Rock Stars Times Tables to practise. Please spend some time learning these if you don’t know them ‘off by heart’ yet. It is absolutely vital that you have a strong working knowledge of these as so many areas of Maths depend on them.
This term we have P.E. on a Thursday. so please make sure that you have your full P.E. kit in school on Thursdays.
SATs are getting closer. If you would like further opportunities to revise, there are links below for useful sites you can explore. Remember though, that the most useful things you can do are to practise your spellings, times tables and reading.
