Thank you to everyone that attended the SATs advice meeting last week. Coming up soon will be a Maths Workshop for parents. Please keep looking on Class Dojo for updates. In the meanwhile please continue to support your child with their homework but more importantly support them emotionally over the next few months. Together let's keep them calm and productive!
Year 6 marks the end of the your time at St Maria Goretti Catholic School and it is always an extremely busy time. Over the year, you will grow from children to young adults; ready to make the move to Secondary School. (Remember- Application DEADLINE is the 31st OCTOBER 2019)
As the oldest members of the school, there are lots of opportunities for you to develop skills and attitudes! You are now the role models for the younger children and as part of this you hold positions of responsibility. For example: Prefects, School Council representatives, Play Buddies for our EYFS children, FBA Leaders and Digital Leaders.
In Year 6, you are expected to work hard, developing the skills and independence you will need at Secondary School. Standard Assessment Tasks (SATs) are in May and lots of preparation work is undertaken before this.
In English work, we study all kinds of fiction and non-fiction genres, fine tuning our reading and writing skills. Grammar is important and you will start to see how authors use this to make their writing more interesting and use it to improve your own work.
Our maths becomes more sophisticated and you will become confident calculating with larger numbers and decimals. Amongst other things, we work with: simplifying and converting fractions, percentages and decimals; perimeter and area of compound shapes; presenting and interpreting data in different forms, and solving multi step word problems.

PE- Physical Education
Our PE days will be Monday and Friday. Please ensure that their full PE kit is in school ALL week. We may move PE days without any warning. PE requirements are highlighted in our school prospectus. Please visit https://www.smgprimary.co.uk/school-prospectus/ for more information.
Homework will be set every Monday and should be returned to school by Friday. Children will be given a homework pack and it is their responsibility to ensure that it is completed in time. If they find the homework challenging or they cannot understand it then they must come and ask me on Tuesdays to ensure that they complete it! No excuses! Homework throughout the year may vary in content and quantity... be prepared year 6!
