Welcome to Year 6:
Miss Nixon is teaching in Aslan Class this year.
This year, as you may well know, the children will sit their SATs examinations in May 2017, which will be the last time the old curriculum will be used to assess the children’s attainment and progress. It is imperative that you support your child with their learning this year and that all the children in year 6 are reading, for pleasure, for at least 30 minutes a day. It is recommended that parents take an active role in facilitating this and listen to their children read as often as possible to ensure they are understanding the texts they are reading. There is an amazing new library in Penge, stocked with a fantastic range of children's books. Please do go and visit.
After Christmas the children will receive SATs revision books to support their literacy and numeracy preparation. They would greatly benefit from any support they can get at home during this time as the build up to the SATs tests can be quite a stressful time for them. The children will receive weekly music lessons with our specialist music teacher, Miss WJ, which will take place on Thursday mornings for an hour.
PE lessons will take place on a Tuesday and Thursday and children will be expected to have their full Harris Primary PE kits with them at all times, which they can leave at school.
On the left you will see links to the 'Boot Camp' programs that the Year 6 children are signed up to.
