Welcome to Year 6!  Our Class Christian Value is Koinonia.

Year 6 is an important year, the children will undertake roles and responsibilities throughout the school. Some children are chosen to be various monitors. These roles entail the children helping and organising different events. All the Year 6 children are matched with a child in Year 3 (their 'Guardian Angel'), this in order to help them settle into the life and routines of the juniors at St.Luke's CE Primary.

As secondary school is approaching, we encourage the pupils to be more self-reliant and self-sufficient. They will start to take more responsibility for their own learning and progress.

English and Maths homework is given out on Friday and is expected back in on the following Wednesday.  Spellings are also given out on Friday and these will be tested on the following Friday.  It is essential that the children realise the importance of doing their homework. It is good training for Year 7 in Secondary School!

Year 6 FAQ

What are SATs?

SATs is an abbreviation of Standardised Assessment Tests. The children are tested in maths, reading, punctuation, grammar and spelling (SPaG).

How can I help my child revise for SATs?

There are a number of publishers who produce revision books, namely CGP, Rising Stars and Schofield and Sims, which you will find useful in covering all the key areas tested. These books can be purchased at leading bookstores such as WH Smith and Waterstones.

How can I find out about the secondary schools?

Talking to other parents who already have children at secondary school is an excellent way to get an insight into life at secondary school.

The secondary schools usually offer parents the opportunity to visit the secondary school in the November before the children transfer to secondary school.

How does the school deal with the children’s transition to secondary school?

We discuss issues that may arise in Year 7 in PHSE lessons. Teachers from some of the secondary schools will visit the children and host transition lessons in class in the Summer term. The children also spend one day in July visiting their new schools.

 

If you have any concerns or questions, please don't hesitate to call in a speak to me.
