Year 6

Governors At St Albert The Great

Hello and welcome to the Year 6 page!

So here it is! The last year of Primary School! The children will have the opportunity to celebrate all that they have learnt in school this year and it will definitely be a year that will be remembered by all.

Year 6 will be completing their SATS, performing a school end of year play and taking part in trips that will help them become independent and resilient.


All homework is given out and must be completed on Google Classroom. There will be a lunchtime homework club for children that need support with their home learning or have struggled to login at home.

For topic homework, children will be able to choose pieces of homework to complete which will be required by the end of term. RE will be set in a four-weekly cycle, matching the topics we teach with the liturgical calendar.

For maths, English and reading comprehension, one piece of weekly homework will be set for children to complete and turn in on a Friday. These pieces of homework will be based on SATS learning and will either cover what the children have been learning in class, give them practise of trying SATS style questions or to help children fill gaps in their learning. It is important that these weekly tasks are completed to support their learning and get them SATS ready.

Spellings, reading (recommended 20 minutes daily) and times-table practise are also required as part of our home-learning. Spellings are tested and set on a Monday, with a task to complete on Google Classroom.

Other Useful Information

Children will be bringing home two reading books. One will be a free reader book of their choice and the other will be a colour level book aimed at supporting their reading comprehension. Whilst they can read either book, in school we will focus on reading the colour level book with an adult to support their comprehension.

PE kits must be in school everyday. Although we have set days for PE these are subject to change, but also there may be opportunities to have active lessons in other subject areas.

Uniform for year 6 children is especially important. Your children are now the role models for the rest of the school and they should be dressed appropriately for each lesson. Please ensure skirts and shorts are of the correct length (below finger tips when arms are at their sides and are not able to rise up) and that they are following the school policy. Also there should be no jewellery except stud earrings (which will need to be removed or covered for PE) and long hair should be tied back.
