Year 6


Welcome to Year 6 @ Church Vale Primary School.


Welcome, also, to this very busy and exciting summer term. We have our residential trip, SATs, transition events, another trip and lots of fun end of term activities. Miss Shaw, our student teacher, will also be returning at the end of May to do some teaching in the class.

For this term PE is currently on a Tuesday and Wednesday, children need to come to school already in their PE kit (plain dark shorts, plain dark jogging/tracksuit bottoms, a plain white top and black or grey jogging/tracksuit top (or they can wear their school jumper. They also need to not be wearing earrings on this day please. 


As always, we ask that all pupils read at least 3 times a week and record this in their reading diary (we add up the reads every Friday). We have also introduced a 3 times a week times tables practise at home challenge where pupils can earn treat/event activities each half term for doing this at least 3 times every week. We also have weekly spellings to learn - your child has a copy of the words but can also practise them on Spelling Shed (they should know their logins but please contact us if they have mislaid them).


Just as a reminder, if any pupil gets a positive PCR result, we will begin setting them Seesaw home learning as soon as we are notified. For any days in the meantime, there are many activities listed at the bottom of this page, pupils have Spelling Shed and TTRockstars access to practise on and Year 6 also have access to SATS COMPANION.

This will enable us to set relevant tasks for you child, see how they're doing and set suitable follow-up tasks for them so that they can be learning relevant topics at the right levels for them. Your child has received a couple of copies of their login details, but if they've been mislaid, please contact us (at the bottom of this page) and we'll be happy to send the details again.




Our topic during this term is a Geography focus, we will be focussing on developing our knowledge of places, cities and features of the UK, geographical skills, doing orienteering and a focus topic on Rivers. In art we are focussing on the talented local artist and designer Paul Smith and in Design Technology we will be designing and making a case for some sort of IT equipment.

Obviously, we have SATs this term, but they are nothing to worry about. The children have worked really hard and are well prepared for them, and they will try their best on the day, which is all we need them to do; all the staff will be there to help, support and guide them - and dish out the occasional treat to keep them going!


Any questions, comments, please use the contact section at the bottom of the page or message us through school's facebook account.
