Welcome to Year 6. Remember to keep checking our page for information about the curriculum and events that are taking place throughout the year.
This year, we have introduced a new system of reading, spellings and phonics. You will be hearing a lot about Accelerated Reader. This is a new way of levelling and recording children's reading. There is a brief overview in the year group newsletter. We have also introduced a focused spelling and phonics session into our daily timetable.
The children have brought home 'Knowledge Organisers'. This is to help them with key information that will be taught during the term, such as key vocabulary and important facts. This is also an opportunity for parents to discuss topic work at home.
P.E. this year will take place on Wednesday afternoons and swimming will begin on Friday 13th September for ten weeks (each class will have a session in the morning).
Year 6 will also be receiving guitar lessons from Somerset Music (one term per class) which we feel is a very exciting opportunity.
