Curriculum Year 6
Welcome to 6H!
We are all very excited in year 6 to begin this brand new academic year!
In our Meerkat class, we have Mrs Hardy (class teacher), Mrs Harper (higher level teaching assistant) and 26 pupils. We also have Mr Woods, our sports coach, teaching PE on a Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning and Mrs Panter teaching the class from 12pm on Fridays.
Please ensure your child has their PE kit on school on Tuesdays and Fridays.
This year we will become scientists, geographers, historians, mathematicians, writers, artists and designers and brilliant sportspeople! We will also be using our character muscles in many different ways. Information about the Year 6 curriculum can be found on this page of the school website and is updated throughout the year. Please also check our Facebook page regularly as that is updated weekly with photos of the children and their learning!
We expect the children to read at home at least three times a week and to have their reading records signed. I will collect the reading records in every Thursday to see how the children have been getting on with their reading at home. Homework is also set every half term with a variety of tasks for the children to complete in the form of a Homework Bingo Grid which is to be uploaded on to the year 6 Google Classroom.
At Kegworth Primary School, we follow the National Curriculum. This is a large document which can be found online and details what should be covered in the curriculum at Primary School. The year six curriculum builds upon what the children have learned in year 5.
Year six is also the year of their SATs in which the children complete assessments in reading, grammar, punctuation and spelling, and maths. More details about the SATs will be given nearer the time so please don't worry about this.
If you have any questions or concerns about your child, please come and speak to me before or after school.
We look forward to a positive, exciting and hard-working year!
