Welcome to Year 6

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Year 6 is the final year at Knowsley Junior School and a very important one too! The children learn to become more independent in preparation for secondary school. They will have homework diaries, which they are expected to use daily. These should be checked and signed weekly, by a parent. It is during this year that the Key Stage 2 SATs take place, so the children need to continue to work very hard.

In the autumn term, our topic is World War 2 – What Did Britain Battle For? Through our creative curriculum, all of the children’s work will be based around significant events which took place during the Second World War, with a particular focus on the Battle of Britain. As with all our themes, if you have any resources that we could share with the children, we would be grateful if you could send them in.

In spring, we will learn about the Maya, an ancient South American civilisation. We are very excited about our curriculum and know that the children will share our enthusiasm.

The children will sit their Key Stage 2 SATs during the week beginning Monday 14th May 2018. Your child’s attendance is of paramount importance. After SATs, we allow the children to choose their own topics within their classes and this always brings much enjoyment.

The summer term is spent preparing your child for their transition to secondary school, building their confidence and independence for this huge step. The year will end with our annual Year 6 Presentation Evening, a night of celebration, entertainment and lots of fond memories.

Here's looking forward to a challenging, action packed and fun-filled year!

Your Year 6 teachers,

Mrs Gresty, Miss Aldred, Mrs Jackson, Mrs Mullins and Mrs Stewardson
