English

In Year 6, we are working extremely hard to incorporate all of the writing techniques we have learnt over the years into our writing. 

In the files section, you will find the Year 6 Writing AREs for expected and greater depth standards, along with examples of some of these expectations for you to look at.

Spellings this year will be a mix of lists of words to learn, as well as spelling patterns for the

children to explore and apply. It is essential that the children are not just learning lists of words, but rather learning the rules of spellings so that they can apply them to words they may not have experienced before. 

Please continue to read regularly with your children this year. I have attached a list of example questions you could ask your children as they are reading to ensure understanding of the text, rather than just word reading, which is a key skill that will be tested during the SATs.
