Year 6 Welcome

Welcome to Year 6.

We hope you have had an exciting holiday and are ready to start your final year of Junior School.

Our first module this year is 'Structures'. Each child will be given a structure that they will spend time researching and create a keynote presentation on. Once the children have spent time practising they will deliver their presentation to the rest of the class. We will have lots of fun getting creative and seeing who can design the tallest standing tower out of newspaper as well as completing a range of ICT tasking.  As part of our module each class will be going on a trip to the Back to Back houses in Birmingham and will complete work linked to this in school. 

What's happening to PLPs?

As part of the National Curriculum all children at KS2 have to take a more active role in shaping their learning journey.
We have been building towards this goal through the PLPs (Personalised Learning Plans) and children's involvement in progress meetings. We are now ready to hand over PLPs to children in Years 4, 5 and 6 to use as their tool for helping them to shape their learning.
What does this mean? 
PLPs will now belong to the child. Teachers will support the children to decide on their strengths, next steps and to choose a suitable target to last for a term. There will be 3 targets - one for a 'core' learning area, one for literacy and one for maths. 
The children will collect evidence towards their targets during the term and they will discuss their progress with their teacher during the term. Outcomes from this will form part of the progress meetings so that parents can find out how their child did and what new targets they have set. 
Progress meetings will continue to focus on Age Related Expectations (AREs) and how your child has progressed against these.

Changes to Maths groupings: Last year we trialed a new way of grouping the children in Maths in Years 3 and 6. This proved to result in very successful outcomes for the children. In light of this we are moving all the Year Groups to this style of grouping. Each year group will have two parallel groups of children working at age related expectations and two parallel groups of children working at a greater depth within the Year Group expectations. These groupings will be flexible to reflect the progress and needs of the children throughout the year.

Library visits will resume on Friday so click here to go to the Year 6 letter section of the website to find out which class will be going each week.
