We love reading in Year 6!

Every day before lunch we have our Class Story Time and read a book together that the children have voted for as a class.

Our current class reads will be selected by each class during the first week in the form of a democratic vote (Article 12 - Your right to say what you think should happen and be listened to).

The children will be able to choose from a selection of books taken from the Year 6 Reading Spine.

6B are reading: Holes by Louis Sachar

6Y are reading: Malamandar by Thomas Taylor 

Here are 50 Recommende

Each week the children will be assigned spellings to learn and they will be tested on these every Monday.

The statutory words for Year 5/6 will be amongst these spelling lists. Please make sure your child revises!





Year 6 children will be sitting their KS2 SATs on the week beginning Monday 13th May 2024.

The tests are sat across 4 days following this timetable:

Monday: SPaG - 2 papers (Paper 1: Punctuation & Grammar; Paper 2: Spelling)

The children will be thoroughly prepared for these tests through all the work we do with them in school.
