Welcome to Year 6

As the oldest children in the school, there is the understanding that you will lead by example and be fantastic role models for the rest of the school. Your last year in school is important for many reasons and full of exciting opportunities and experiences.

We work together to ensure you leave East Park equipped with all the skills necessary for you to be an independent and confident learner in High School. There are many opportunities for you to take on responsibilities around school and to support younger children.

At the end of the year, we celebrate in many different ways including leavers’ assemblies, full scale productions and of course a Prom. These are times when you can share your experiences across the year and celebrate your hard work and success.

Our East Park 8 values will underpin life in Year 6 and each week a child in each class will be chosen as ‘Star of the Week’ linked to a specific value that they have demonstrated. A ‘Learner of the Week’ will also be selected for a child who has worked hard on their presentation and has completed fantastic learning during the week. The following topics will lead the learning in foundation subjects this year:

Autumn Term

The Great Victorians- children will develop their geography skills by learning all about the British Empire and then their history skills by learning about life as a Victorian.  The children will experience a day at Blists Hill Museum too, where they will take part in candle making and see the sights of a Victorian town.

Spring Term

Exciting Egyptians- children will develop their history skills by learning about how the Egyptians used to live and many of their daily customs.

Summer Term

The summer term is extremely important term in Year 6.  The children will sit their SATs during the week beginning Monday 13th May 2019.  Therefore it is vital to their development that your child is at school every day.

Supporting your child at home

Each week children in Year 6 will have reading book and a library book to take home. Library visits will take place during a morning where they can change their reading books with Librarians.  Children will also bring home a weekly list of spellings to learn on Tuesdays and spelling tests will take place on Tuesdays too. Children will also bring home a termly homework project sheet at the start of each full term (see below for homework).
