Year 6 Curriculum Overview
The minimum knowledge that children need to know for every topic has been put together onto one knowledge organiser, which can be found here.
Our PE sessions will take place on Wednesday and Friday afternoons. Please make sure that you have the correct kit in school for those days. Please remember that earrings, as well as tape coverings, are not allowed to be worn during PE lessons. WLPS PE tracksuits are available to buy from Penn Sports.

A good routine with homework this year is vital because next year at secondary school, the children will receive lots of homework from various subjects. The homework is the children's responsibility so it is important that they complete it as independently as possible. However, should you need any further assistance with completing homework then I am always happy to give extra help and support if needed.
Homework will be set via Google Classroom on a Monday, and due the following Monday. It will consist of a mixture of either maths, grammar and reading, depending on what we have covered in lessons during the week. The children have purple homework books that they can use for working out, jottings or notes but all homework must be submitted via Google Classrooms.
It is expected that the children should read at least 3 pages of their reading book at home each day. The children should complete their reading book marks with the page number and the date.
Once the children have completed their book, they must take a quiz on Accelerated Reader and hand their book mark to the class teacher.
Spellings are set weekly via Spelling Frame. The children should use the Spelling Tiles, Segment Cards, Games and Practice Tests to practise these before they are tested on a Friday. All spelling test results will be available to view on your child's Spelling Frame account.
Times tables and division facts underpin most mathematical concepts within the Year 6 curriculum (and beyond!) so it is important that the children continue to use Times Tables Rock Stars to practise on a regular basis.
The children will be set one Mathletics task per week to complete alongside their homework. They should also continue to use Mathletics to practise any areas of the maths curriculum that they feel they need more support with.
