Year 6 Expectations

As the top of the school, year 6 will be expected to set a high standard of behaviour and attitude, being excellent role models for the younger children to follow. There is a greater emphasis on independent learning and being responsible for remembering to complete home learning, bring in necessary equipment . This will enable them to transition well into high school.


Year 6 SATs 

End of key stage SATs will be taking place  in May.  The SATs are an assessment of ALL KS2 learning, not just work covered during year 6. For Reading, Writing, Maths and GPS (Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling), there is an expected standard for year 6 pupils to reach.



Within reading comprehension, pupils need to be able to find and retrieve information directly from the text as well as to be able to make inferences based on what is being said indirectly within text. They will also need to justify answers by finding evidence in a text to support their ideas.



Within writing, pupils needs to be able to use  both basic and more advanced punctuation, write for a variety of purposes, use knowledge of grammar rules effectively, have clear and legible joined-up handwriting, spell a wide range of words correctly and consistently and obviously to have writing that makes sense.



Within maths, pupils will need to have a secure knowledge of calculation (addition, subtraction, division and multiplication) for the arithmetic test as well as using and applying that knowledge in the reasoning test which will include shape, measure, statistics etc.



Within GPS, pupils are expected to know and understand how different grammatical elements affect writing and to use these correctly within a range of writing tasks. They will also be expected to be able to use spelling rules effectively to spell both familiar and unfamiliar words, as well as using a wide range of punctuation correctly.

This half term, Lemur class participated in an environmental science week organised by IntoUniversity. The class learnt about 4 different environments (The Great Barrier Reef, The Sahara Desert, The Amazon Rainforest and The Arctic) and how modern day issues affect them. The class worked both independently and in groups to create a project on one of  the environments. This was then shared with parents during their graduation ceremony at UEA on the Friday afternoon. 

They also had a day at Great Yarmouth Sealife Centre, learning about issues affecting our oceans.
