Hello and welcome! In Year 6 we work extremely hard to ensure that children leave Abbey Hulton Primary School having achieved the best they can in all areas. We encourage children to become resilient, enthusiastic and independent learners, who show integrity, tenacity and pride.
Teaching and learning in maths follows the National Curriculum, which teaches the following main areas: number, ratio and proportion, algebra, geometry, measure and statistics. Where possible, links have been made across the Maths curriculum to provide children with as many opportunities as possible to apply their knowledge and understanding.
English lessons are planned and delivered around a variety of texts. In addition to the work we do in reading and writing, there is an increased focus on SPAG (spelling, grammar and punctuation) throughout Year 6, as the children will be tested on this in May as part of their SATs.
Please support your child by encouraging them to read at home and to practise their spellings. Spellings are usually given out at the beginning of the half term and are tested weekly on a Friday.
We encourage children to read every day at home. We expect the children to read at least 3 times a week at home and they must bring their reading book and diary in to school every day! They receive reading miles for doing so and could win the reading miles prize at the end of the year. We complete reading lessons every day and use this time to explore the class text as well as lots of different text types. Here we develop our understanding of comprehension and language whilst fostering a love of reading.
Throughout the year we will be covering many fun and exciting topics following the new curriculum.
PE – Swimming will be on a Friday morning from 23rd September through to February. PE will be Monday mornings. PE kit must be a plain white t shirt and plain black shorts/tracksuit bottoms.
Reading – Reading books and diaries must be in each day. Children should read a minimum of 3 times a week.
Homework– Each week children will be set spellings, maths and reading homework. Homework books will be sent home on a Friday and need to be returned by Wednesday the following week.
