Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to the Year 6 page!
On our web page, you will find useful information, updates on what your children are learning and any other information I can think to share with you.
What’s happening when?
Spellings will be handed out at the beginning of the week and tested on Friday. The children will be given opportunities to learn them within school but it is essential that they also practise at home.
Children will need their PE kits. Whenever possible, the children will be doing PE outside so it is important that the children have the correct PE kit so that they keep warm. It’s recommended that the children keep their PE kit in school.
The children will be tested on their weekly spellings and homework will be set on Education City. This will always include a Maths activity and possibly a GPS activity, depending on what is taught in the week. If a paper copy of the homework is needed, please let me know as soon as possible.
Please ensure your child brings their reading record to school every day where it be will changed if they have finished it home.

Year 6 Spellings
Each week, your child will be given a weekly spelling sheet to practise their spellings on at home. In addition to this, the children will have ALL of this half term’s spelling stuck in their reading journals – this list will also be available on Teams.
On Mondays, I introduce the spellings and rule within a lesson. If the children are given a rule to learn (this will be on the back of the weekly spelling sheet), it is important that they learn it as this will help them to spell words that aren’t on their spelling sheet. I like to add one extra spelling into the test on Friday that isn’t on their sheet but does follow the rule!
Below is a copy of all of the Year 5/6 (and 3/4) statutory spellings – these are spellings that most of Year 6 children should know by the end of the year.
Here are the spellings for all of Autumn 2:
Writing in Year 6
This half term, Year 6 will be reading Michael Morpurgo’s book, ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom and using this as a stimulus for our writing. Below is a link to the different writing genres we will be covering.
