At Bury C of E Primary School,
We love one another and are forgiving of each other,
just as in Christ God forgave us.
We speak the truth in love and show proper respect to everyone.
This is an invitation to ‘Be More Jesus’.
Love: Dear friends, let us love one another for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:7-8
Forgiveness: Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:31-32
Honesty: Speak the truth in love Ephesians 4:15
Respect: Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers (…) 1 Peter 2:17
Welcome to all of the Year 6 children and families. Year 6 is an incredibly busy year at school but we are here with you every step of the way to guide you and make sure you get the most out the year. We are going to immerse the children in a variety of subjects to fill them with all the knowledge they will need, and more, ready to confidently start secondary school.
We hope that you find all the information you need here but if you want to find out more, please check out the rest of our school website and our school Twitter account. As always, we are here to make this a memorable year for your child, so never hesitate to contact us.
Class Teacher: Mr J Glozier
Please see our yearly curriculum overview to find out what your child will be learning this year.
It is absolutely vital that your homework is completed on time and completed at home. Homework runs from Friday - Friday.
In Year 6, the children are expected to:
- read at home daily (comments should be recorded in their reading record).
- complete 30 minutes of ‘Garage’ on Times Tables Rockstars.
- practise their spellings in preparation for their spelling test every Friday morning.
Reading is the corner stone of everything we do, so it is vitally important to hear your child read most nights!
Statutory Assessments Key Stage 2 – SATs
During Year 6, the children are expected to take part in statutory key stage 2 SATs. These tests are based on the English and mathematics national curriculum objectives covered from in Year 3 to Year 6.
The children will be completing their SATs on the following days (2022- 2023):
Tuesday 9th May 2023 - English grammar, punctuation and spelling papers 1 and 2
Wednesday 10th May 2023 - English reading
Thursday 11th May 2023 - Mathematics paper 1 and 2
Friday 12th May 2023 - Mathematics paper 3
In addition to the week of testing, teachers will be carrying out teacher assessments on the children's writing. This will happen throughout year six and will be reported to your child's secondary school along with the test results.
There is no science sampling for the 2021/22 academic year.
Below you will find further guidance on the SATS. Please do not complete the previous SATs papers (2016-2019) at home as we use them for our assessments in school. These tests help us to identify areas where your child needs extra support.
- Your child may choose to bring fruit or vegetables for a break time snack.
- Our PE days are on Monday and Wednesday. Your child needs to come into school wearing their PE kit on their PE days.
- The children will need their own water bottle in school. Please make sure that they are clearly labelled.
- Please label all uniform/coats/shoes to ensure that it is identifiable and can be returned to the correct owner.
