Year Six

Mr Abbott

Hello, and welcome to Year 6!

I hope you’ve all had a fantastic summer and are raring to go at the start of this important year for Year 6 children across the country. The children will be working hard (as will all the adults) throughout their time in Year 6 and we hope to see continued improvements in everything that they do.

During your child’s time in Year 6, they will be expected to consolidate their grasp of a range of fiction and non-fiction texts. They will develop skills related to planning the key features of these texts, as well as practising their ability to write for a given length of time. Your child will also be expected to further develop the speed and accuracy of mental calculations to reinforce calculations as part of problem – solving tasks, as well as covering objectives related to Shape and space, Data Handling and Measurement.

Homework is an essential part of your child’s learning, and children will be expected to read every day and complete an English and Maths related activity each week. We are, of course, more than happy to help children if they need further instruction before homework is due to be returned – homework should not be a cause of extreme anxiety!With the children moving on to secondary school at the end of

Year 6 there will of course also be the opportunity to participate in a number of fun trips and activities, as well as all of the fabulously entertaining lessons that will keep the children amused and educated.

Please feel free to contact myself – Mr Abbott – through the school office should any queries arise.

The children will be working hard throughout this year, ensuring that they are ready for their transition to secondary schools in the summer.  I am confident that they will have a successful and enjoyable final year at St Oswald’s!
