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 uploaded onto Microsoft Teams 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.
PE day – children can come in their PE kits on Thursdays
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.
The children will be tested on their weekly spellings and homework will be set on Microsoft Teams. 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. Homework needs to be completed by the following Friday.
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, weekly spellings will uploaded onto Microsoft Team for children to practise their spellings 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 (if there is one). 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 1:
Here are some different techniques to help with learning spellings:
