Special Valuable People ...Successful, Visionary and Proud

Year 6

Welcome to Year 6!

 

Welcome to Year 6! Our class teacher is Miss. Borrill and our teaching assistant is

Mrs. Travis 

 

 

It doesn’t seem  that long ago that your children started in reception and here they are embarking on their final year at Stockbridge Village Primary. Year Six is a challenging year; the best way to describe it is like a roller coaster ride!

 

In Year Six we do have the challenge of SATs and we work really hard to ensure that ALL the children have the best opportunity possible to achieve their full potential. However, we also try to ensure that we have fun along the way and provide the children with some lasting memories!

 

Developing independence is a really important part of being in Year Six. We are very aware that part of our role in school is to prepare our children for their move to secondary school and with this in mind much of the year six curriculum encourages responsibility and independence. From the moment the children enter year six they are responsible for their own learning, expectations are high and they are encouraged to work independently.

Responsibilities are also earned in the form of Prefects.

 

Timetables Practice- Year 6 children are expected to know all of their multiplication tables up to 12×12. This should be practised regularly at home.

 

Daily Reading-This should be 15 minutes with someone at home and Reading Records must be signed and dated.

 

Weekly Homework- 

Maths/Literacy Weekly Homework will be given out each Friday and due in on the following week. Homework should never cause anxiety or worry.

Street Child
By Berlie Doherty
Published by HarperCollins


Set in the second half of the nineteenth century, Street child tells the story of a boy called Jim who, after a series of misfortunes, spends time in the workhouse as a child labourer and lives on the streets. The book is based on the true story of an orphan whose plight inspired Doctor Barnado to try to help street children, and led to the founding of his children’s homes. Exploring the novel enables children to discuss challenging themes including cruelty, injustice, resilience and humanity. It also enables children to develop an understanding of issues such as poverty and child labour.

Reading for Pleasure List 

 

As I am sure you are aware, as well as being an enjoyable pastime, reading impacts hugely on children’s writing ability and general learning. We encourage children to read as much as possible, both at home and in school.
