Hi and welcome to Year 6

SEND SUPPORT: Mr Featherstone, Miss West, Miss Cordery
As you are aware Year 6 is an important year for our pupils as they prepare to sit their SATs and transition to high school. The Year 6 team strives to help our pupils to achieve their full potential and give them the best possible start for high school. We expect the pupils to be motivated towards learning and try their very best. We are grateful for the support of parents/carers and are always here to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Autumn 1 & 2 - WW2
Spring 1 - Journey to the Far East
Spring 2 - Transatlantic Slave Trade
Summer 1 and Summer 2 - History through the ages / End of an Era
Each week we expect each child to complete the following activities:
Reading: 15 minutes per day either on Bug Club (web based reading) or reading a fiction book.
Spellings are given out weekly on google classroom and class dojo. The children are given a baseline test on a Monday so they know which spellings they need to focus on. They are tested again on a Friday with all the children keen to beat their previous score.
Maths: Children can independently access Times Tables Rockstars at home to improve their rapid recall of multiplication tables and corresponding division facts.
From time to time we will set extra homework linked to our class topics. Children will be informed about this and instructions given on class dojo and google classroom.
PE for Year 6 is on Wednesday and Thursday for Autumn half term 1. School provides a PE kit of shorts, t-shirt and pumps but children can wear their own kit (please see school uniform information) and come to school ready for PE rather than changing in school.
SATs week 2023 is the week commencing Monday May 8th.
SATs revision club will be starting in Spring 2. All children are welcome and encouraged to attend where they will have 1:1 or small group tuition based on Reading, Maths and Grammar.
Transition to high school
All application forms are to be completed by October 31st 2022. You can go online to complete this on the Blackpool Council website.
Pupils will work with a variety of groups throughout the year to support resilience, mental health and transition including Healthy Heads.
There will be transition work and visits made once high schools have been allocated.
At the end of the year we celebrate Year 6s Westminster years with a Leavers Assembly, Leavers' Memory Book and Westonbury Festival on our school field.
