Year 6 Curriculum Information Power-Point

Class Information


Our PE days are on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please make sure that your child comes into school on these days wearing their school PE kit.


Below is a copy of our class timetable. Mr Cain will be teaching the majority of the time. The class will also be taught PE by Mrs Stone on a Friday afternoon.


The National Curriculum for Years 5 and 6 expects children to be able to:

  • Use further prefixes and suffixes and understand the guidance for adding them (such as –able and –ible)
  • Spell some words with ‘silent’ letters (such as knight)
  • Continue to distinguish between homophones and other words which are often confused
  • Use knowledge of morphology and etymology in spelling
  • Use dictionaries to check the spelling and meaning of words
  • Use a thesaurus

By the end of Year 6, children are expected to understand and be able to meet the challenging spelling demands outlined in the National Curriculum. Children’s knowledge is assessed through a grammar, punctuation and spelling test that children sit in May as part of a week of national tests.
