Welcome to Year 6!
A big hello from the Y6 team, Mr Jolley, Mrs McPhail, Mrs Lamb and Miss Holl.
PE days are Tuesday and Friday!
On a Tuesday, it is in the morning - so please come into school in your PE kit and bring your uniform in a bag with you.
On a Friday it is in the afternoon, so please come into school in uniform, with your PE kit in a bag.
Recently, we have been studying life for the people left at home during WW1, building up to the armistice! We will be hosting a party to celebrate 100 years since the end of the war!
We are also starting the daily mile once again in school, pushing to increase our levels of activity! Feel free to ask your children how many laps they completed each day!
Reading test - The end of KS2 test has 50 marks, you have an hour to complete it! There are 3 pieces of reading, and 3 sets of questions.
SPaG - This is out of 70 marks. 20 marks are from a spelling test. 50 marks are available based on grammar and punctuation.
Maths - The big one! Three papers! There are a total of 110 marks available. 40 marks on an arithmetic paper. 35 marks each on the other two papers, which are reasoning papers (applying maths to real life problems, or questions that are puzzle-like and need a little bit of thinking time to work out what you need to do!)
Writing - There is no writing SAT paper! Hurray! However, children are expected to produce 6 pieces of writing at the expected standard after February. Standards in writing are very high, with children expected to evidence all the skills taught.
