About Year 6

Hello, I am Mrs Cole; the year group leader for Year 6.
 
 
This year is an important one for the children in Year 6. Not only is it the transitional year from Primary to Secondary school, which will include SATs tests (Statutory Assessment Tests) but, it is also their last year here with us at Parsloes Primary School. During Year 6, we have a strong focus on the core learning areas of Reading, Writing and Mathematics. Alongside this, the children will create many more memorable moments of their time spent in this school.
 
 
We hope that your children enjoy Year 6 as much as we do. For more information about your child’s learning and how you can support them refer to our year 6 blogs.

Teachers teach the skills of arithmetic well. Pupils are able to confidently perform calculations sometimes with quite big numbers by the time they reach Year 6. A group of Year 6 pupils were relishing an exercise which involved manipulating seven digit numbers and trying to work out how to read them.

OFSTED Statement 2015

Year 6

To prepare for Secondary school we create an environment, in which the children are motivated to learn independently. To support this, all children receive a homework diary and are responsible for: writing down their spellings/homework each week and keeping a personal reading record. Parents/guardians should sign the homework diary on a weekly basis and use the diary for regular communication with their child’s class teacher.

In the Summer term the children have the opportunity to be a part of the end-of-year school production. This gives them the chance to showcase their skills in singing, dancing and acting, prop making and set design.

We hope that your children enjoy Year 6 as much as we do. For more information about your child’s learning and how you can support them refer to our year 6 blogs.
