Year 6

Welcome to Year 6
We are extremely proud of Year 6: they faced - and 'survived' - SATS week, showing considerable maturity and determination.  As a treat, we spent Thursday afternoon at Sands Park, playing on the swings and kicking a football about on the pitches.  Great fun was had by all!  We now look ahead to some very busy weeks, which include two trips; producing a writing portfolio; putting together a production and preparing for the transition to secondary school.



With the end of key stage 2 assessments complete, we are immersing ourselves in writing. Over the next few weeks, the children will be producing pieces of work in a range of genres which demonstrate all the skills they have acquired over their time at Castlefield School. They will be collated in a portfolio which may well be shared with external moderators.



It is absolutely essential that the children read to an adult every evening and have their journals signed. We are encouraging the children to actively seek the meanings of words that they do not understand.


Suggested reading lists can be found under resources. Please encourage your children to read books from the list.




Year 6 will be learning about Living Things and their Habitat.




We will explore the Tudor world. Learning about the life and times of the Tudors, in particular studying Henry VIII and his wives.




Year 6 will take part in athletics in preparation for sport’s day and a variety of ball games.
