St Francis Catholic Primary School, Morley

Together in truth and faith we learn and grow as God's family.

Welcome to Year 6!

Information about our class:

In year 6 we try to make learning fun using as many different ways as possible to include all children and find the most effective way for them to learn. This ensures that all children achieve their full potential.

We respect each person's individuality and celebrate their successes at every opportunity.

Our teacher is Mrs Pearson and our teaching assistants are Mrs Warne and Mrs Waters. Mrs S Harrison teaches our class on a Friday.

A typical day in Year 6 consists of English, maths and reading comprehension in the morning and other subjects from the curriculum in the afternoon.

We enjoy taking part in a Worship every day, including a Key Stage Two Worship on a Wednesday. Through listening to messages from the Gospels, we learn and grow in our Catholic faith.

'The Way, the Truth, the Light' provides the focus for our RE learning which is enhanced by creative whole school themed weeks such as 'Where is God?'

Homework is set on SeeSaw on a Monday and needs to be completed by the following Monday. We also need to complete 30 minutes on TT rockstars a week.

Spellings are put onto SeeSaw on a Monday and tested the following Monday.

We are encouraged to change our book weekly and to read and practise our times tables every day.

We provide revision clubs after Christmas which all pupils find useful as teachers are available to support each child’s learning in preparation for SATs.

All pupils take on many roles in year 6. Our main aim is to prepare the children for high school and teach them the skills that they will need.
