Welcome to Year 6! The class is taught by Mrs Farr and supported by Mrs Haffenden, our HLTA. We have an exciting time in Year 6 as we busily prepare for our SATs and transition to Secondary school, with memorable leavers celebrations. Over the year, we go on local trips, for example to Dover Castle, a Residential in June and some great opportunities to attend community days at Tonbridge School. Our topics over the year are Geography, History or Science based and the children are involved in developing questions to investigate. We study the impact of World War Two on Kent; understand how ancient civilisations have shaped the way we live today; study evolution and inheritance; investigate adaptation and design experiments to further understand electricity.
Welcome back to a busy term. You will know from the letters coming home that this term has a focus on our SATs tests that run from Monday 8th to Thursday 11th May. The tests will take place as follows:
|Monday 8 May 2017||English reading|
|Tuesday 9 May 2017||English grammar, punctuation and spelling Paper 1: questions English grammar, punctuation and spelling Paper 2: spelling|
|Wednesday 10 May 2017||Mathematics Paper 1: arithmetic Mathematics Paper 2: reasoning|
Whilst it is key that the children are given every opportunity to do their best, we also ensure that they do not get too stressed and understand that we know they have many skills and talents that are not reflected in these tests. We reasssure them that their best is good enough, and that they have worked very hard so should feel confident in their ability.
If you have any questions regarding the week, please do not hesitate to contact us.
