Welcome to Year 6
Welcome to Year 6. We have a very exciting and challenging year ahead of us. Throughout the year, we will be covering all areas of the curriculum, letting the children explore and discover new and interesting facts. In addition, we will continue to develop their ability to become independent learners. Part of being in year 6 also comes with the added responsibility of being a role model to others throughout the school, inspiring them to always follow the RLK values. During the autumn terms, we will be having a real push on the children’s handwriting and developing pride in their work. Spelling and the accuracy of our punctuation will also be priorities in our writing.
Reading will play an important part in increasing the children’s vocabulary and supporting them in creating their own stories. We have planned to cover exciting texts throughout the year although these will be revealed at a later point.
In Year 6 the ability to quickly recall any times table fact up to 12 x 12 is very important, as so many areas of the Mathematics curriculum requires good understanding of times tables. We therefore encourage all children to practise their times tables as often as possible!
