Welcome to Year 6
Mr A Longworth and Miss D Cohen - Year 6 Teachers
Mr J Perry - Year 6 Teaching Assistant
Welcome to Year 6. We lead a fantastic team of staff who are here to make Year 6 the most productive, successful and enjoyable year ever! As Year 6 is the last year at St.Margaret's, working hard and embracing all aspects of school life is something we encourage you to do. We will help you develop your independence, confidence and skills in order for you to move through the SATS and prepare you for high school.
We have extremely high expectations and will expect all children to work to the very best of their capabilities. Concentration and hard work will be the key to achieving their very best throughout the year. They will be expected to set good examples of behaviour for the younger children to follow. They will need to take on extra roles and responsibilities in and around school and when in class be prepared to work with even greater periods of concentration.

YEAR 6 WEEKLY NEWS...
Friday 26th February 2021
It has been lovely seeing you all on zoom meetings or in the Y6 classroom this week after the half term break. After Monday's announcement from the Prime Minister, Year 6 will be back together again on Monday 8th March and we are really looking forward to having you all back and being Team Year 6 again. Keep working hard during the last week of lockdown, showcasing your knowledge and understanding and talents across all the subjects. You have all done remarkably well this year and should be proud of your achievements and progress. Lets hope the weather is like it is as I am typing this so we can all get out for walks and bike rides. Keep being awesome and we hope you and your families are safe and well.

Please see the curriculum overviews in the relevant term below for details of what we are doing in the curriculum. The weekly spelling words can also be found there. There are ten spellings each week, plus an additional five words from the National Curriculum list of spellings that children are expected to know by the end of Year 6. This full list can be found in the Autumn Term. Please encourage and support your child in learning these words throughout the year.
We would welcome your support with encouraging your child to complete homework and in handing it in at the appropriate time. We will ensure that the children know what the homework is but it will be the children’s responsibility to make sure they take it home at the time it is given and bring it back accordingly. This will help the children become independent learners.
English: given out on a Wednesday handed in following Tuesday
Maths: given out on a Tuesday handed in following Monday
It would also be helpful if you can ensure that your child reads each night (minimum of 15 minutes), to build up their fluency and vocabulary. Ensure that they read a variety of fiction and non-fiction and the texts reading will be a challenge. Please make sure your reading records are signed and in school each Tuesday and Friday to be checked.
PE: Remember full kits please for Monday and Thursday PE sessions . Also tie long hair back.
