Year 6 – Middle Earth

Welcome to Middle Earth Class!

Miss Davies

Mrs Stead - TA

Year 6 is the final year of primary school.  During the children’s time in Year 6 they will build on all the skills learnt in the previous years and develop new skills in preparation for high school.  The children are encouraged to become more independent to be role models for the younger children.   Children are selected from Year 6 to be Captains or Vice Captains and represent the school. 

What kind of assessment is there in Year 6 

Children in year 6 sit KS 2 Assessments, which are known as SATS (Statutory Assessments).  These take place in May each year and test the children’s Reading, Grammar, Maths and spelling.  Writing skills are continually assessed throughout the year with the teacher making a judgement as to whether they have met the expected standard in June.  These results are reported to the child’s high school. 

How can I help my child in Year 6 

  • Year 6 children need to read regularly to an adult at home to improve their understanding of a range of vocabulary and continue to improve fluency.   
  • Create opportunities for your child to practise weekly spellings and the statutory words for Year 6 is extremely helpful. 
  • Supporting children with Home Learning 
  • Encouraging your child to regularly use TT Rockstars to improve speed of recall of times tables.
