Welcome to Year 6!

Welcome to our Year 6 homepage!

Class Teacher: Miss Holt         Teaching Assistant: Mrs Fallon

On this page you can see what the children have been up to during the term. 

I hope you enjoy looking through our photographs and seeing all of the fantastic work the children have produced so far.

 

This term our topic is The Groovy Greeks!

We will be discovering what life was like for the Ancient Greeks, discovering what their civilisation was like and studying the expansion and dissolution of their empire.

Keep checking back for updates of the work we will be completing and sharing!

 

Our class read in English is the hilarious novel, "Who Let the Gods Out" by Maz Evans. We have only just started to read this book and the children are already hooked!

Year Six SAT information

In Year 6 SATs are a more formal process of testing, and children will sit KS2 SATs 2020 in: 

  • English Reading
  • English Grammar
  • Punctuation
  • Spelling
  • Maths

They will also be assessed by their teachers on subjects including speaking and listening, writing and, in some cases, science.

By using teacher assessment, schools and the government are able to judge a child’s performance in a subject over a longer period of time.This means that teachers are able to account for a child’s whole knowledge and ability in a subject, not just that which comes to the fore in a test environment.

Please make sure you are in school for week beginning: Monday 11th May 2020
