The Year 6 Curriculum

Below you can find a link to key documents which will give you as a parent or carer an overview of what our Year 6 pupils will be learning this year and the skills that they will need to develop.

Click here to find out more about each topic and, as ever, if you have any questions about your child’s learning then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Routines

KS2 children can go to their classrooms from 8:40am where there are members of staff there to register them.

We would ask that you encourage your child to be independent when coming into school. It is very important for your child’s development for them to be able to take responsibility for themselves and their own property.

At the end of the day, Year 6 children are collected from the yard by the main gate. We ask parents collecting children from Year 6 to stand by the wall. We work with a “hands up” collection system. Your child will not be sent to an adult collecting until a member of staff has seen who is there to collect. If someone different is due to collect your child please indicate so in the communication diary.

At least 2 members of the staff will be available at the beginning and end of each day to answer any questions that you may have.  Any of the staff will be able to answer your questions or direct you to the appropriate person.  If you wish to make an appointment to see the teachers, this can be arranged at a mutually convenient time.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any member of the Key Stage 2 team.

PE Day

Our PE day is on a Wednesday.

Your child should come to school in the following kit:

Black shorts / plain black tracksuit bottoms / black leggings
Team colour plain t-shirt
Trainers or pumps
School jumper
