Welcome to Year 6!
Year 6 is an important, busy year in our children's education, with much to prepare for. The end of Key Stage 2 tests take place towards the end of the year and these are followed shortly afterwards by the children's transition into their secondary education. As a result, the focus of the team is on working hard to ensure that the children are as prepared as they can be for both events.

In order to assist the children in the consolidation of the work they are covering in lessons, they will be set homework in English and maths each week. This homework will be set on a Friday and expected to be handed in to their class teacher by Wednesday. With a view to their transition to secondary school, class teachers will be encouraging the children to adopt the good habit of completing this homework as soon as they can after it is set and handing it in as early as possible.
In addition, the children may also bring home 'Learn Its' - mathematical addition and multiplication facts that they will need to learn by heart.
Your child may also bring home their personal spelling logs in which they have recorded words they need to learn. It would be really beneficial to them if you could assist them in this during the course of the week.
Finally, the children will need to complete the weekly reading challenge by reading for 20 minutes at least 4 times a week. Each 'read' needs to be signed by an adult.
Please check the Year 6 Homework page if you are unsure about your child's homework.
